Yeah, I'm busy... but the primary reason is that, since I can't drive, I can't get to places; I'd rack up hundreds of dollars in taxi rides to go to tastings and to interview florists, etc.
And yendi's mom said she'd pay for the whole wedding if we had it in Scottsdale, AZ, where she lives.
So! Wedding is in Scottsdale! For reasons of, well, she's paying. And because this is her son's wedding - he's an only child, she's a Jewish mother. And she's retired and thus has unlimited time to do this stuff, whereas I'd only have an hour or two a week.
It will probably be held at CopperWynd Resort, which looks quite posh.
Yes, she'll be consulting with me on stuff - but in general, I'm perfectly happy to leave the bulk of it to her.
Which means that I will actually be able to have the reception I want to, here in GA! The big potluck house party! I'm not formal. I just want to hang out with my friends at my wedding reception, y'know?
So. Yes. There you have it.
