I just got bad news...

...potentially bad news. After thinking my planning was going so well I got a call from my church this morning saying they accidentally double booked my wedding date with a German fest they host annually!! :( so I can still have the wedding there but there is no longer parking or he is calling around the other lutheran parishes to see if anyone else can host. (Which I think it's an easier solution vs trying to find transportation and or moving the date! I'm kind of devastated at the prospect of having to change everything!! Tell me I'm not crazy or alone or being a brideZilla. So far I'm handling it well but I won't lie I feel like curling up and crying over it. Since I'm at work that would consist of hiding in the bathroom. :( ugh. Back to work and to wait for a phone call. :(

 No phone call today (Parrish office closes at 12) and I'm feeling really crappy. Also the venues office is closed on Tuesday as well so I can't talk to my coordinator about other ideas either. This is just the kind of news I didn't want a few days before my first dress fitting and engagement shoot on my birthday. I'm so stressed as it is I don't need something else to drag my mood down. I keep telling myself the same thing. It happens for a reason. :(

Maybe you could have your wedding at the same place as the reception.....................stay positive and focus on the things you can control.  Happy thoughts ok?

 My reception venue really doesn't want to host the ceremony (they will if they have too) but its in the afternoon, during season, in the middle of the golf course... So random golf people walking around and stuff. But I guess that's better then a bunch of people in lieder hosen and lord knows what music... And beaut worst. I just dunno. Why does this always happen to me!?

Oh man, sorry to hear that. I hope everything works out for the best and a church is available to book you in for the ceremony. I wouldn't get to upset I mean, sometimes overbooking happens, things get over looked all the time. 

Crossing my fingers everything works out and everything else goes smoothly for you.

 Thank you everyone for the well wishes, I guess I should quote Pastor and say The Lord has provided us with a solution. Now I just need to rework a few plans instead of everything! Good thing I haven't made my invites yet even though I'm cutting it close!

 It seems it has worked out. Today on my break I will call the new church and see about setting an appointment and to see if there's anything I need to do.

Aw, I'm sorry!! I know how stressful this is and how frustrated you must be not being able to get in touch with anyone today. I know when I have a problem I always feel better if I can feel like I"m doing something, even if it's just calling for an update or something...not doing anything and sitting and worrying makes it ten times worse - I feel ya!! But you are right - it could be so much worse and the best part is that you haven't done invites yet. So worse comes to worse you move the church or have it on the golf course...even with a bunch of golfers around that could still be very pretty! The strangers won't be in the pictures, and you would be so wrapped up in the moment you wouldn't even notice them, promise!!

Fingers crossed that it all works out for you! And since it was the churche's fault they overbooked, maybe you can work out some kind of deal with them, either they give you a full refund (not sure if  you had to pay one??) or help you find another location? Something to consider!

As encouragement, here are some pictures of a friend's recent wedding on a golf course - in the middle of the day with golfers all around :)

 Hehe my wedding date is feb 1st. I'm hoping to mail invites a little early by mid to late nov. We did get it resolved, I'm now waiting to talk to the pastor of the new church even though my old pastor will be the officiant I want to make sure there are no new rules and regulations I need to attend to before the wedding. You know things like can the photographer approach the alter etc. I'm very glad everything has so far happened smoothly. So it should be fine. I know it will be. The new church seems pretty. I uploaded a few pics I found online. To my boards. Yes there's no charge now but I will still make a donation. I feel very blessed that they took charge if their mistake and found a solution promptly.
