  • I’d love to!
  • First, how many people should we invite? Bob wants a small wedding.

  • Then there’s the location. I always thought I would get married in a park or at the beach.
  • That’s so romantic!
  • I would like to get married indoors, (where) I won’t get wet if it’s raining.

  • Don’t hurt yourself. Here’s an idea that might work. Plan a wedding (that) is big enough to include all of Cheryl’s family ... sorry Bob ... in the park on Oak Street (that) has that building (where) you can go if it rains. You can have traditional music in the ceremony and contemporary music at the party. And you could have two cakes at the reception — one white and one chocolate.
  • Sounds OK to me.
  • Me, too.
  • Hey! We did it!
  • Yeah! I’m so happy.
  • Excuse me.
  • Oh, Marie, thank you so much.
