Whose wedding is it anyway? Not mine anymore. :(

I waited till 11:25 pm to be able to write this blog.


I received a call this afternoon from he Producer of the show. She was so upset. She had been running around like crazy trying to get everything done to start shooting next week. Kevin the wedding planner had already agreed to do the show and everything was set.  Accounting did not approve the funding for the filming... she said she fought it as well as other people who were helping the production.  The accounting Department declined re-consideration.  She called me and was soo apologetic. I told her it was o.k and that I was still going to marry the man that I loved and my wedding was still going to be my wedding and even though I was disappointed, I was still excited to be getting married in 4 weeks.  Was a good experience and was an exciting possibility.  But it fell through. :(  


My FI is still really upset. Even though he always put up some what of a front about how he was looking forward to it.  The disappointment was very evident in his comments about how "I'll never watch that show ever again! How can they build someone up like that and then tell them funding wasn't approved from the git-go?!!!"   I explained to him that the producer was actually overly kind in wanting to do our segment so much that she was trying to be one step ahead of the game thinking it would be approved and as such would of pulled it off in a record time.  He calmed down a little after that. But Mitch is a kind soul and he is like a little boy sometimes. You tell him he's going on a trip and then tell him he's not. He gets very hurt. Poor guy.  Funny thing is.... all I could think was... "how am I going to tell the girls of PW" hahahhahhaha


You all were my first freaken thought!!!!  Get out of my head ladies!!!!!! hahahhahah


See you all O.C'ers tomorrow.. You all better be extra nice to the funky chunky Mexican girl tomorrow. I'd say buy me a drink but I don't like the booze too much so don't do that!!! hahahhahaha  Just come bearing lots of laughs and even the weirdo hugs. hahahhahah


C.U. Friday Bisatches!!!!!

Aww honey, don't be upset.  Everything happens for a reason and there's a reason why this didn't happen for you.  You're right to be concentrating on the most important thing...you'll be marrying your wonderful FI in a month!  There's nothing more important than that!

I am so sorry Marinag. I feel for your FI. It sucks to get your hopes all high just to be dissappointed big time. Sweet of you to consider our feelings.


You're still our celebrity bargain/manzanita/tissue pomander bride! :)

Awwww! :[ Man! I wanted to see you on there! But ya know... its probably better this way. That way you won't have to stress over camera's and your wedding at the same time! haha


I can understand why your FI would be upset haha! That is so weird they couldn't do it? What funding did they need? If they can't fund your show how are they going to fund others. Weird!


I love how you tackled it with a big heart and looked at the best outcome! :] Now i cna't wait to see pictures of your wedding day!! :]

I'm so sorry.  DEFINITELY their loss!  They will NOT find anyone as entertaining as you, that's fo sho!  lol.


And who knows, maybe they would've been a bit in the way, ya know?  Maybe they would've wanted you to do this or to do that, and in the end it would've taken away from the moment and purpose? I dunno, just saying it could be a blessing in disguise.  You certainly haven't lost anything.....they did.

Oh gosh... I know you are probably pretty disappointed right now, but honestly it is probably for the best.  I have a friend who did one of those shows about a year ago.  She was so excited.  They told her they would be very unobtrusive and only wanted to get all the good stuff and make a truly beautiful episode that featured her and her husband.  They told her wedding planner (not one provided by the show, but the actual wedding planner) that they would not interfere or get in the way at all on the wedding day.  That was not the case, they had cameras everywhere and were blocking guests views during the ceremony, made them start their ceremony 40 minutes late because the were interviewing their priest and then had to mic him up all while she stood in the back of the ceremony area with her father waiting to enter.  She said her wedding planner was furious and that the camera crews were unapologetic and kind of rude to everyone.  


Her caterer tried to warn her not to do it as he had done an episode of "WWIIA?" a few months prior and said they were horrid and made the couple look like total bafoons and that if it had not been for the "wedding planner provided by the show" their wedding would have been a catastrophe!  The shows wedding planner took all the credit for everything, from designing the floral and coming up with the menu to the entire wedding design, which the bride and groom had done themselves along with the input from their vendors.  The day of the wedding, they were specifically focusing on anything going wrong.  They would ask the vendors if there was something not expected happening or if they were having any issues with the bride or groom.  Basically, they were looking for drama.  In the end, the couple was disappointed with the final show that was aired as it was not a true reflection of their wedding day and credit was given were credit was not due!  The caterer said he felt they were looking for the negative and did not focus on the positive elements and feelings of the day.  Hence the title of the show!


Watching the show, you can see where they would do that.  On some of the episodes you wonder how so much can go wrong or be in a mess or waiting to last minute for something to happen, when all the while it probably is not that way, just added drama for the show.  I am sure you want your day to be memorable and perfect and not see if aired with the possibility of looking like it was not.  So maybe it was a good thing that this happened.

AMEN!!!!! This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine!!!! I love you people..... hahahhaha


I am not going to make it tonight. I am cramping and crawling into a fetal position all day long. I am here with my :Mother in law who just walked away right now. She is getting on my last mother @#$@#$@#$ nerve!!!!!! she is one of those drama, attention craving, woe-is me people who wants to hear praise and adoration for everything she does. I told her I'm fucking hurting and she still has her dumb ass nerve to ask me for dumb shit like..... "I gave you a collar for the dog... where is it and why isn't she wearing it? Don't you care about things people give you? Ohhh Maybe I just shouldn't give you things anymore because you make people feel less important and . Ohhh Kathy.. stop talking now."  I looked up at her as I was making fucking tissue flowers and said to her... "ARe you serious?"  then I told her.. "I am hurting with the worse cramps ever... and I just had the show canceled and I have 4 weeks before the wedding. Are you seriously going to ask me about a Dog collar?"  then she went on about how she just wasn't goingt o offer any more opinions and she was just going to leave me alone and not offer to come help anymore and what ever she could think to make herself look unappreciated... I chuckled and said.... "Ohhh mom.. you are too funny.. You crack me up!!"    I want to honestly tell her she fucken needs help and needs to go spend some money on a fucken shrink!!!!! Then she is talking about how when she gets old and how she knows she will need her kids to help her and how great it would be to live with us... I wanted to break out in loud laughter and say.. "How the hell do you expect that to happen when you act like an annoying, nosy, controlling bitch!!!!!!"   arrrrgggghhhhhhhhh 


We were shopping for flowers yesterday.. She was giving me her input on which flowers I should go for. I told her no because that's not the look I wanted.. Then she's like.. "Well, I guess mother in laws are just meant to walk around with their children and agree like complete useless objects and smile and have no input to offer.  Hmmm.. Kathrynn mind your business and smile and say nothing"   I wanted to jump her and slap her.    She leaves today.....  Ohh, and I told her I was going with the O.C girls.... "Honey, you are really being irresponsible with your time. You ahve to take care of your wedding details not go around having meetings and doing things that are not productive.   She said yesterdays meeting at the bakers was a waste of good time.. Mind you the Baker offered a free wedding cake, free fruit pastries, free snacks and free everything!!! but I could of gotten all that buy just showing up and what not..  Ladies.. Please make her go away!!!!!!!!! I need to sleep and cramp in peace!!!! Help me!!!!!! I've got to stop typing and go sit with her.....   She came in and read all of your comments before I typed this and she said.


"Tell them now I'm planning your wedding and everything is going to be better than the show would of made it!! Tell them your Mother in law is your new wedding planner!"
