So, my friend is getting married in State Capitol on April 15. “Great!” I thought. “Maybe I can go to the march for Drumpf’s tax returns and her wedding!” I was postponing making actual plans to go to the march until I had details on the wedding, like time and place. I got those today in the form of the invite.
The wedding is taking place at 10:30 a.m. The march will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The wedding is taking place in a hotel that is in downtown, literally one block from the march route. I went to her website today and there was no mention of the march. From a logistics view point, this is going to create HUGE headaches. Our Women’s March in State Capitol city had 200K attendees in January. 5k have already RSVPd on facebook for the tax march. Even if just those 5k people show up, that’s still huge amount of people to inundate downtown on a Saturday morning, especially if no one is expecting it.
Her family is mostly Republican, so I’m sure they don’t know and will be annoyed about it when they find out. But I felt like she should know, so she can warn people to plan for it (navigating, parking, walking, etc.). Except I didn’t want to tell her because she just expressed her concerns to me the other day about her fear that the wedding is going to be a dud. I’m so happy for her to get married because she’s wanted to for so long, so I don’t want to tell her that her wedding day may become a logistical disaster for some guests.
I called my friend who’s also going to the wedding and she’s offered to say something to the bride’s sister at the bachelorette party (that I’m not going to). The bachelorette party is in Las Vegas, the weekend of Valentine’s day. There’s no hotel booked and no activities planned yet. My friend is a bit concerned. But she said she’ll tell the bride’s sister, who can warn the bride, who can warn the guests to plan accordingly.
If I get married, pretty sure I’m gonna elope.
