It was one of those grey, lazy February mornings. He was sitting on the couch with a paper.

She'd be flipping through some glossy wedding magazines that she'd started browsing through with almost every free moment.

He finished his article and noticed she was looking at wedding stuff. "Anything catching your eye?"


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:35, September 9, 2019 (UTC)
"Just trying to get a general...knowledge of everything." She'd look at him. "What sort of wedding do you see yourself having?"


NewEric

-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 15:37, September 9, 2019 (UTC)

He shrugged. "I... don't know. I don't think it's something I really pictured... at least not in the way that girls do."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:38, September 9, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod slowly. "Ok...but give me something. Big wedding or small? Somewhere local or somewhere exotic? What type of colors or theme?"


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 15:41, September 9, 2019 (UTC)

He frowned. "I guess... small? Just family? It's not like I've got family or friends to invite." He paused. "The other details don't matter as much to me." He smiled at her. "I want you to plan whatever you dreamed of. If you're happy, I'm happy."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:44, September 9, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod slowly. "Well that's mostly family with a few friends from Hogwarts I still keep in touch with and some colleges from...various places. I still think it should be fairly small...maybe fifty people? Seventy-Five at most?"


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 15:46, September 9, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded. "That's fine." He paused. "We already have our date in August. I think some people send out a sort of pre-invite around this time? Six months-ish, for people to save the date. Did you want to do that? Or is word of mouth enough?"


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:50, September 9, 2019 (UTC)
"I think word of mouth is probably enough but I would like to send out a save the date card to people also as a more...formal gesture."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 16:13, September 9, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded. "We can put one together."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:15, September 9, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod. "I'll work on sketching something out and run it by you before I send them." She'd pause. "So other than who I listed is there...anyone you'd want me to add to the list?"


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 16:17, September 9, 2019 (UTC)

He shook his head. "If I come up with something, I'll let you know."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:25, September 9, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod then look down at the magazine. "So, next we need to figure out and book a venue." She'd look up and give him a grin. "We could do Brazil."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 16:26, September 9, 2019 (UTC)

"If you want to," he said slowly. "Where were you thinking?"


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 16:27, September 9, 2019 (UTC)
She'd shake her head and laugh. "I was joking about Brazil. Just...making a bad reference to our time there."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 17:53, September 9, 2019 (UTC)

He wondered why she'd brought that up in the middle of wedding planning. "I figured you might have been joking... but didn't want to say as much and be wrong."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:54, September 9, 2019 (UTC)
She'd smile and nod. "Fair enough. So any thoughts on venue?"


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 17:57, September 9, 2019 (UTC)

He shook his head. "All the weddings I ever went to were at the various homes of the people who were getting married... big old family homes, sort of like Prince Castle. But I don't think that's the right place for us."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:58, September 9, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Yeah. We could do it here but...it would be a lot of work to make it...work."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 18:01, September 9, 2019 (UTC)

"Work how? What are you envisioning?" He asked, trying to get a better idea of what she wanted.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:07, September 9, 2019 (UTC)
She'd pause to consider. "I...guess I'm torn. Part of me wants something big and elegant and...refined. Elaborate. Expensive." She'd pause. "The other part wants something more...primal. Outdoors somewhere. Remote. Simple. More about the party and reception after than the ceremony."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 21:14, September 9, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded. He'd expected the former. "Do you want a simple ceremony and an elaborate, expensive reception? To sort of use... both?"


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 12:29, September 10, 2019 (UTC)
She'd think about that for a minute. "I...don't think so. I think I'd rather go...all in on one or the other."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 15:00, September 10, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded. "Well... this is just the vibe I'm getting from you... you said that using this house as a venue wouldn't quite work. Since this house is more catered to something small and intimate, perhaps that means you'd rather go the more lavish route?"


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:02, September 10, 2019 (UTC)
She'd take a deep breath then give a small nod. "Yeah...you're right." She'd look at him. "...and I think that would probably fit you better too."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 15:05, September 10, 2019 (UTC)

He shrugged. "My old life. I've grown used to having less," hs said with a small smile. "But if lavish is what you want, then that's what we'll do. Did you want to do it here, or find a special destination?"


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 15:16, September 10, 2019 (UTC)
She'd start to answer than realize he hadn't meant here as in the house. "I like the idea of doing it somewhere special I just don't know where that would be. It makes a lot more sense to do it here especially since this is where most of my family is so less travel especially with the kids."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 17:18, September 10, 2019 (UTC)

"So if there were somewhere that would be comfortable for the littles, but far away... like the Villa in Greece maybe?" He suggested, thinking aloud.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:25, September 10, 2019 (UTC)
She'd take a few deep breaths while thinking about that. "Greece...might be an option? It's still some traveling with all the little ones...but maybe I could work something through the Department of Travel to get some easy portkeys for people?" She'd pause to mull it over. "We might be able to do it at the beach there...if we think we could make that...elegant enough."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 17:52, September 10, 2019 (UTC)

"What's not elegant enough about Greece?" He asked, wondering just how elegant she was picturing now. "What else did you have in mind?"


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:58, September 10, 2019 (UTC)
She'd consider. "Not Greece but a beach wedding."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 18:06, September 10, 2019 (UTC)

"Well there aren't a lot of nice beaches here..." he said frowning. "Most of them are pretty... rocky." He paused. "The south of France has some nice ones."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:10, September 10, 2019 (UTC)
She'd shake her head. He'd clearly misunderstood. "No, I think Greece is probably elegant enough I'm just not sure how to make a beach wedding seem...elegant. I'm fine with Greece...and I like the idea of using the beach there I just would need to figure out how to make it look like we'd want."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 18:30, September 10, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded. "So when you say elegant... what comes to your mind? What's the picture you'd want to create?"


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:41, September 10, 2019 (UTC)
She'd think about that. "I can picture it in my mind but...describing it is kind of hard so...bear with me. The...feel is a well choreographed dance or a really old building made of stone that still has those crisp fine lines despite it's age. The idea of having something that takes ten steps to create then finding a way to reduce it to five and make it that much more efficient. What you see when you look at a massive ballroom that's set to feed a large group of people with everything set up and prepared or how nice meals are artfully drawn on the plates." She'd wrinkle her nose a little. "I know that's...all vague and doesn't really apply to a wedding or anything practical but that's...the best I can describe what I see in my mind?"


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 18:44, September 10, 2019 (UTC)

He had been listening very intently... but she was right. None of that really said wedding... or even implied it. "So... probably something indoors? Elegance, in that description anyway, didn't imply anything outside."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:47, September 10, 2019 (UTC)
She'd pause for a long minute or two, clearly thinking. "I...don't know. I think we probably could do it outside since a lot of nature can be really beautiful like that. I just don't know how to make it happen. It's not something I've really ever looked into." She'd look thoughtful.


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 20:20, September 10, 2019 (UTC)

He gestured to the bridal magazine, and flipped through a few pages of another. "I'm sure there's ideas in here. Or you could talk to your sisters."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 12:12, September 11, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod. "That's sort of my plan right now I think."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 12:26, September 11, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded. "Anything else you wanted to go over?"


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 12:53, September 11, 2019 (UTC)
She'd give him an oblique look. "Do you care about colors?"


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 13:28, September 11, 2019 (UTC)

He gave her a blank look. "Am I supposed to care?"


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 13:52, September 11, 2019 (UTC)
She'd shrug. "I assume not I just wanted to check." She'd pause. "How about this...is there anything going into the planning of this wedding you do care about?"


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 14:47, September 11, 2019 (UTC)

He considered that. "I... just want you to be happy and have the wedding you've dreamt of. That's what I care about. So if it makes you happy, it makes me happy." He paused. "If you need someone to bounce ideas off of, or someone to puzzle through something though, like we did with the venue, let me know."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 14:56, September 11, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod. "I will but just to be sure we're on the same page there's nothing specific you really have a strong opinion about? Colors, flowers, guests, venue, time of day, level of formality, who marries us...you're fine with whatever I pick?"


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 16:07, September 11, 2019 (UTC)

He considered each thing she listed. "I'd like a say in the guest list," he said. He frowned. "I thought we just determined our venue?"


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:31, September 11, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod. "Tentatively unless I can't make it work for whatever reason."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 17:34, September 11, 2019 (UTC)

He remained confused. "How will you predetermine that? It's not like we can... just have a second venue ready and waiting on the day of, if you decide things aren't working..."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:45, September 11, 2019 (UTC)
She'll shake her head. "No...I'll need to figure out if it will work in the next week or two and if that won't work get another venue figured out and booked."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 17:47, September 11, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded. "If you determine you want to switch, I'd like to be part of that process."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 17:49, September 11, 2019 (UTC)
She'd nod checking off mental boxes. "Ok, venue and guest list. Anything else?"


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 17:55, September 11, 2019 (UTC)

"I think that's fine. If there's something you think I should weigh in on as the planning continues, let me know."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:08, September 11, 2019 (UTC)
She'd smile. "Of course."


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 18:11, September 11, 2019 (UTC)

He leaned in to give her a kiss.


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:23, September 11, 2019 (UTC)
She'd smile and kiss him back.


NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 18:31, September 11, 2019 (UTC)

He lingered for a few moments before pulling away to look her deeply in the eyes. "I love you."


Melinda Adult
Melinda Bagman - Magizoologist
Send Me an Owl! - 18:33, September 11, 2019 (UTC)
She'd give him a loving smile. "I love you too."
