...My wife, Journalistic Jargon
, and I, recently celebrated our 4th anniversary, the 31st of August. We celebrated over the Labor Day weekend in Lindsborg, Kansas or Little Sweden, USA. Check out her post to see what other things I did for her.
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
