I'd like to add a few things.
First, of all, I planned the wedding out while soon-to-be Mrs. T. Swede, was completing an internship, in Ellis, Kansas.
Second, this was no small task. I did it while working the 3rd shift at Cessna Aircraft Company, when I was a flightline mechanic AND going to school at Wichita State.
Third, we cut costs by doing things ourselves. I made the wedding announcements, maps, registry cards. Soon-to-be Mrs. T. Swede found the bridesmaid dresses on sale at a store. She also made the wedding bouquets. Her grandmother made the lovely wedding dress (which I preserved for her.) Her parents pitched in on the material for the wedding dress and a DJ. My parents pitched in wedding flowers, time and money. My little sister, Lisa, couldn't make it. My littlest sister, Josie, made a gorgeous white fondue cake. My little brother, Jason, just showed up to be best man.
Finally, I provided the best thing: free alcohol - wine and beer. Free! (Get that, Nick? You don't make yer guests pay for the alcohol.)
UPDATE: Forgot one detail. We planned our wedding in less than 30 days. It is probable and not impossible.
Just call me: Super Swede.
