- Week 1: Do nothing. It's ages from now, all a bit scary, so just ignore it and see if it all goes away.
- Week 2: It's not going away. Start looking on the internet for hotels, dinner things, and stuff - all you want to do is have a set meal in the fancy hotel, with some booze laid on. Simple. Look on the net for a few hours, then leave it for a while.
- Week 3: The registry office needs you to sort out your forms 15 days before the wedding day. So do this now, 17 days before the day. Plenty of time. Get some nice clothes to wear on the day. Check internet again, look at the same hotels and dinner things. Start thinking about phoning one of them.
- Week 4: Phone hotel, sort out food, book hotel room. 2 days before the wedding, finalise the menu, pick up the forms for the registry office, pay for the ceremony. The day before the wedding, pack your bags, arrange the car to transport people (one of my only 4 jobs, 3 of which I forgot to do), and check into the hotel. The day of the wedding, run out to the shops for a few last minute items. Get married, eat lots, get drunk.
So, er, I'm now married, as of two days ago, and a bit bewildered, tired, spaced out, and deliriously happy all at the same time. Married to Jo, obviously, not some random stranger.
