..And she’s doing it in VEGAS!
Yup, that’s right, I’m going to Las Vegas again… for the third time – and the second time this year. But hey, my best friend is getting married, and I, of course, am in the wedding party!
Originally, my friend Jerra was going to get married here in Vancouver, and even started planning the huge, traditional wedding for approximately 150-200 guests. She soon realized that she hated every second of planning this wedding, because it wasn’t what she wanted. I’m not sure whether it was the number of people that bothered her, all of the planning that had to go into it, or whether she just preferred to have an intimate group of people that she really loved share her special day with her.
Whatever the case, over Christmas she convinced her fiance that a small wedding with less than 50 guests in Las Vegas was the way to go. I couldn’t be more excited!
Although, I have to admit, at first I thought: “Really? Vegas? I mean.. really???” It took a while for Jerra to explain to me that no, she was not going to be married in a wedding chapel, and no, an Elvis impersonator would not be performing the ceremony. She showed me what she had in mind, and it absolutely took my breath away. The ceremony is going to be held at Mandalay Bay, and dinner afterwards will be held at Kahunaville in the Treasure Island hotel.
So, plans are in the works right now – booking flights and hotels, planning stags and stagettes, arranging details for the day of the wedding, etc. The wedding is to take place June 7, 2009, and it seems as if that date is creeping closer and faster(!) all the time. I may or may not write another entry closer to the date, but I will most definitely post some photos to share the experience after we get back!
