VENT: I just cannot believe it!

Seriously I'm crying like a baby for at least an hour, now! I just went to the church to give them some papers they needed and the lady at the administration chose this moment to tell me that there will be MAJOR renovations on the front of the church all summer long!


I was pissed because of course it means no picture in front of the church with everybody after the ceremony, but well, I told myself it wasn't that bad and that the outside of the church wasn't the focus of the wedding anyway.


But then, she told me it also means that there was no way I could enter the church in the back and the only place left was the side door which give directly in the front of the assembly...So no going down the aisle...No exit either!


Seriously...I contain myself just longer enought to get to my car and then bursted into tears...I cannot believe it!!!!! Going down the aisle with my father & looking at FI for the first time, is THE moment I was looking foward the most. They totally ruined it!!!


I cannot believe this is happening! And they knew that there would be renos since last year and wait to tell us this...NOW???? 4 months before the wedding??? When invitations are arleady in the mail and there is no way that there is another church available in town for the 14th....???


NIGHTMARE!!!!

Oh honey, I'd be upset too. I'm angry for you!


But there has to be a way around it. Is there any little area where you can come early and hide out in the back? Even if they have to set up a little curtain/draping situation? A bathroom near the back? Something??? I refuse to accept this for you!

Wow I'm so sorry to read this. I agree with fromcoldtofire it has to be another way and they should be able to accommodate you better since they are the ones giving out the information late. Just pray about it!!!!

I'm with fromcoldtofire, there has to be a way around this for you.  I would think there has to be a way for you to arrive prior to your guests and 'hide out'.   There has to be some space near the back of the church that you and your father can start your walk down the aisle!


I know this is terribly upsetting, but give yourself a couple days to get over the shock that things are not going to be how you envisioned them.   Don't panic because there is a solution to this.  Something will come to light that will give you your ailse walk!  Don't give up.


Big hugs, hon!

What is their problem!?!??! Soo sorry you have to deal with this right now :( But ditto fctf and the others...there has to be a way you can get in before and still have your walk down the aisle. Must! It will all work out!

Ohh Pasquale.  :(  *BIG BIG hug*  I'm so sorry about you're going through this.  That's ridiculous that the church didn't inform you of this sooner and the timing sucks given that you just mailed your invitations last week.  :(


I'm definitely with FCTF - there has to be a way to get around this.  The draping sounds like a really good idea - maybe even have a draped tunnel down the side of the church's interior so that you can get as close to the start of the aisle without the guests having to see you?  Where there's a will, there's a way and seeing that the church flubbed up with not informing you sooner, they should be willing to cooperate with you on finding a solution that works.  Keep us posted on how this goes.  xoxox

Um, I feel like that's something they should have mentioned earlier.


Ditto Lauren. Is there ANYWHERE you can hide out? What about having the guests come in through the side so you can wait in the foyer area? Can you get pictures and maybe some of the creative ladies here can help out?


The whole "down the aisle" thing matters! I don't care if I sound shallow saying it, but dangit people need to get a view of that dress! And walking up the side with your dad isn't the same!

Wow....I cannot beleive they didn't tell you this earlier!!! Please take FCTF's advice and talk to the church and see if there is anyway around this. I know how you feel about traditions...they have to work with you!

Thank you to each one of you, lovely ladies, for your support!


We'll definitly try to figure something out since there is no way I'm not walking down the aisle on my wedding day. My BMs are very supportive and they had already offer to come with me, this sunday, at the church to see what we can come up with (and I truly love them for this).


But since I'm all emotional about this topic right now, I think it will be better if we wait a couple of weeks before we go, just making sure I'm rational again and don't jump at anybody throat while we are there, hehe!


I'll keep you updated for sure.


Thanks again.

HIGSSSSSSSSSSSSSS sweetheart you contained yourself well.  I would have had that ladies head.  That really unprofessional.  Hopefully something will work out for you on that day.
