The Reluctant Groomzilla: Details, Details, Details

The big tasks are finished. But for the Reluctant Groomzilla and his bride-to-be, the list of little things is still a long one.

First of all, if you read this column regularly, I apologize for not writing much lately. Basically, things have been pretty slow in the wedding-planning department. Kind of a summer vacation, you might say. We got most of the big things done already, and now we just have the small details . . . lots of small details.

We have ketubahs, kippahs, ceremony music, thank-you notes, transportation, programs, escort cards, welcome baskets, menu cards, and a slew of other things, but for the most part the big things are done. Somehow, I suspect that this is really the calm before the storm. I’ve noticed that my fiancée is a little more on edge about wedding stuff. I’m not sure if it’s because the to do list is longer or the countdown on our Web site went from three digits to two, but somehow this is starting to seem less like fun and more like work.

We’re also getting into the nitty-gritty details of who’s getting invited to what, who gets to bring a guest, and all that fun stuff. I can’t wait to do the seating chart. We may need a UN resolution for that.

The great part is that this is where the Internet seems to come in handy! Did you know that you can get ketubahs from and kippahs from Now I just need and things will be great! I started this process really excited about planning a very cool event, but now I’m definitely ready for it to be over already, or at least be more fun and less mundane!
