Do YOU want to come to our wedding? You can!

So, after a bit of debating as to whether I should do this post on this here personal blog, or our Wedding Blog, I figured there is less chance of it causing kak with family or friends if I post it here :)


So, we have planned the wedding for 80 people… and we had an “A-List” and a “B-list” of guests… the A-list are mostly coming, and where they aren’t, people from the B-list are now invited… problem is (well, it’s not really a problem) my sister and her BF from USA are NOT coming to the wedding unfortunately (another whole train of thought here, but maybe another time) … so I essentially have 2 spots open that I don’t actually have someone to fill them. There is someone who I would love to invite, but I can’t (again, another train of thought, and maybe another blog post). So, yes, I could give those two seats to my folks for some random friends, or to Peter’s folks for some random friends… but I actually don’t want to. I am over having random people at my wedding…


there have been a lot of people on this blog and twitter and a little BBM group who have been so kind and supportive to me with all the crap that went down with a lot of the wedding stuff, and I am really exceptionally grateful to all of you! (you know who you are!) … and ja, I thought, I wondered, if anyone out there would like to come to the wedding…? I know, it’s a bit odd… It’s strange, but I just can’t choose two people, or one couple to fill up those two seats I was hoping would be for my sister… We can always just cut down and lose those 2 seats, and if that’s what happens, that is fine… but if you are reading this blog, and you would like to come to our wedding, we would love to have you!

The details are:

Sunday 9 October at 11am. Oakfield Farm, Beyers Naude Drive, Muldersdrift, JHB. Unfortunately no kids under 10 years old. A selection of drinks will be supplied, otherwise it is a cash bar (credit/debit cards only, the venue doesn’t accept actual cash) …

so ja, if you are interested, leave me a comment, or drop me a mail, letting me know if you want to come! And I will chuck the names in a hat, and pull one (or one couple) out! If no one comments, that’s fine… random parent’s friends here we come! :p Please don’t “enter” if you can’t/won’t come.


Since most people who read this blog are twitter people, I would just let you know which other tweeps will be there: @snowgoosesa and her ginger @shauncusters. @luckypony will be there. @angelsmind is my wedding co-ordinator and will be there, and @jenty is the photographer. :)

I’d love to attend, but I am only ONE so if you have two spaces you’d need to pick another single person or choose a couple instead. :-) But whether I’m there or not I wish you well on your special day and I hope it is totally awesome and even better than you expect. ((Hugs))

Pick me! ps. I think this is a fun and creative solution to your 2 spare seats problem :)

Damn, have just been informed that I probably can’t actually make the 9th :( So will sadly withdrawn my entry and give people who know for sure a better chance. But damn, I can’t wait to see the pics !!!

Sorry :(
