Yesterday was a clusterfuck but I survived it and we have a new rehearsal time on Saturday. I cancelled our happy hour rehearsal party reservation and am now deciding between 3 locations that can host us for brunch instead since the new time is 12:30-1:30pm. It eats into my sister’s time to arrange the flowers but she’s being a trooper and making it work. Luckily our photographers and our band can come at the new time so I’m not going to give the problem any more negative thought. I’m not happy with how the venue handled the change nor am I pleased that when I asked how they would be compensating us for this last minute inconvenience, the woman just ignored that question in my email. At least she is not our point of contact for the day of. I’d rather we steer clear of her because if you think I’m unhappy with how we’ve been treated, you should talk to Mr. Darcy, my one-man-mob.
Thanks to all of you for chiming in on here, Facebook, and Twitter with support and suggestions. You helped me maintain my sanity yesterday!
As the days tick by, I’m getting more and more excited. A week from tomorrow a lot of our friends start arriving. The thought of having my closest friends all in one room together again chokes me up. I love that my friends will get to hang out with Mr. Darcy’s friends, that our families will have time all together, that we’ll get to hug everyone and laugh with them.
The to do list continues to grow. As I cross one thing off, another jumps on. But it’s mostly little things like finish the ring bearer pillow, wrapping some of the vases, drawing out diagrams for the table settings and favor/dessert tables, finalizing the music playlists, etc. I still need to find an outfit to wear to my bachelorette party. At some point Mr. Darcy and I have to quit stalling and write our vows. Seems pretty important to the whole “getting married” experience.
I’d like to say I’ll write about something other than the wedding in the coming week but. . . it’s pretty much what I am living and breathing right now. I hope you understand and don’t mind too much.
