Invites Out, Updated Hotels…

So slowly life “resumes”. We are delighted to say the formal invites are out to you all… if you haven’t received one please let us know. Please use the QR Code to RSVP!

We had some additional recommendations for hotels for those still thinking about it… Suggest booking early 🙂

So We Are One

Thank you to all those to joined us in Wolfenbüttel for “Die Zeremonie” and a few nibbles and glasses of water… (that’s what I was told!)

We are now “Mrs & Mr Grützun-Davey” and it feels good – after all this time!

Now… on to the Party…

Itinerary Update

For all guests, you should have received an email with an updated itinerary. Due to some unexpected circumstances outside our control, we have made alternative (but hopefully equally as good) arrangements.

The Website is updated accordingly…

Standesamt München

So, at last, all translations done, revised paperwork collated and an early trip last Friday to the Standesamt München…

Apart from a few rather difficult questions for Mark, not least arising because of no “Apostille”* provided by the GRO (General Records Office, London, UK) for the reverse of his (third*) copy of his Birth Certificate (or something… the Beamter made lots of seemingly aggressive comments). Anyhoo… the upshot of it all is… assuming the “Judge” does not decide to throw a spanner in the works for some reason, April 14, here we come!

It’ll “only” take 6 weeks for München to process the documents…  For the money paid, I’d expect it done the same day 🙁

*An Apostille (in German) means… no, me neither!
*one even had Croydon spelt “Croyden”!!!! (Spelt with o and e on following lines…).

You now see what grief we have had to deal with.

Technical delay…

So there was a slight issue – we forgot to get the invitations to the party printed at the time of doing the hochzeity thing… Which means a slight delay in sending out the invites… opps… please bear with us… Chrimbo kinda got in the way

So almost ready to go “live”

So the plan is guests can RSVP simply by clicking the link from the qr code on the invite. Having thought about this, it seems relatively “simple” but the number of technologies required to “get there” is bizarre… BUT if it saves the planet by reducing postage and stuff… well here’s to that 🙂 However, the invites will have cost at least one tree… and sending them out another… I guess you can’t win all the time… The thing is though, the QR Code on the invite might be beneficial (particularly at the Party) where “benefits” might acrue… we shall see!
In the meantime, if anyone reads this before 2018 strikes… Have a fab holiday and, as they say here in der Vaterland, “Wir wunschen euch einen Guten Rutsch ins 2018”!
