Etiquette School is in session! > "I'm afraid that won't be possible."

So you want me to pay more, when I've already paid less?

P.S. I thought you got married? Was it in the Valentine's thread or am I misremembering?

That was the legal set up in the area of an elderly relative who could not travel (no public reception) - this was a public announcement of their intentions....

Not that common in their area - but not uncommon for their situation.

You must be thinking of another poster.  Glitter's partner planned and executed the perfect small wedding around Valentines day.

Glitter posted about it at the time, I remember because I thought her partner sounded so sweet and I was amazed the friends and family managed to keep the secret.

'It'd been Partner's plan all along, so that my great-uncle could see me get married (since we aren't sure he'll still be with us next year), and she clued me in the morning we were leaving. She'd gotten her siblings to meet us out there with her mom, and my two best friends as well, my mom was already coming and my grandparents were already out there. Honestly, it was perfect. And we went out to eat at this Jewish deli afterwards, we had the brisket.'

I had about six hours of sleep last night - so my brain may indeed be mixing up several different eHellions into one event.  No more caffeine with my evening meal...I'm not young enough to get by on six hours of sleep and the promise of more sleep "later".  I need my sleep on time...or possibly a little extra...

I just have an easy time getting to bed more than eight hours before the alarm clock goes off at 6 am.  I've been a night owl since I was six years old or so and becoming a lark at this date...would be unexpected.
