This is a good thing. He proposed more than a year ago. We knew that when he made it back home he was going to be getting married soon. And Katie has been dieting (we guess, to look good in the dress).
Having said all of that, I know that there are going to be skirmishes. In fact, they’ve already begun.
Juan isn’t going to have a religious ceremony. I don’t merely mean that he’s not having a Catholic wedding, which he’s not. What I mean is that he’s not having a religious ceremony at all. He and Katie are planning to just go to the Justice of the Peace (alone) then have a reception (with guests).
My mother isn’t pleased. Arianna isn’t pleased. Linda is remaining quiet. And I think he should just do whatever he wants. (I’m not sure I’m going to voice that opinion too loudly, especially near my mother.)
But that’s just the first of many many discussions that will erupt. This is Katie’s wedding, and her Mom’s. I’m wondering how my mother will react to the fact that her role in this wedding is going to be minimal (as my sisters’ mothers-in-laws were).
And the story will continue…
