Weddings are a funny thing. I was so glad to do it this way as I get so uncomfortable with a lot of fuss and bother. I have always felt that it is the marriage not the wedding that I need to focus on! I know my family would have liked to be there but we will have a party when everyone is in town.
As a crafty addenendum ( is that how you spell it?) to our trip, I almost seriously fainted when I saw the amount of knitting needles in the thrift stores in Victoria and Sidney. We got married in the morning and after a nice brunch and some cake, Paul and I naturally went thrifting. In Toronto I have a terrible time ever finding needles at thrift stores but on the west coast it is a bounty of untold proportions! I guess due to an aging poplulation who perhaps no longer bother with knitting? Whatever the reason, I bought tons and even taught our host (Paul's best friends wife and our good friend) to knit. She was tearing through a baby blanket when we left and I am so thrilled to have lit the knitting fever in another person. Mwa hah ha ha.
