Role of Personal Attendant?
I just received this email from my FSIL - her wedding is this weekend. I'm really not sure what to say about it...but it's a good start to a discussion about the role of a personal attendant.
Did you/will you have one?
What did they do for you or what do you expect from them?
Am I freakin insane for agreeing to this list...because if anything goes wrong is this all on me??
Hello my wonderful personal attendant!
I've compiled a list of everything that I can come up with without trying too hard & I feel like I need to apologize in advance for how many things I am putting on you. I'm glad that I have picked such a very organized & go-getter person to help us out on our big day!
Here is the list that I have compiled so far, I'm sure there will most likely be a last minute list of freak out things next week. I have a list printed out for you, I'll give it to you on Friday night, its however you want to tackle it, sorry its so long
Here we go!
