why? why? why?

I ahven't been on much this past week because I have been geting ready to get married!!! yay its this Sat.  But everythign is going wrong.  One of my FG's is coming from Brazil and they still ahven't received their visa's.  /they think thyw won't get it in time and will miss the wedding!  Then my BM's dresses were custom made and they look like shit!  They came in late and they are completely wrong!  I'm freakign out b/c the girls look terrible in them.  Then FI's cousin who is also his GM told use last week he's not coing.  WTF?  They wedding is in 2 weeks I said...His phone is off and he e-mailed us the news!!!  Again WTF?  My B-Pix came 3 days later then I expected and so I only now got to finishing my book and don't knwo if it will get here in time for the weddign and I waited on sending out my guest book b/c I thought I'd place the order for both at the same time and now its too late and again I don't know if it will get here in time plus I coldn't do it through blurb and it looked way better.  I odered a guest book pen silver by Beverly Clark and instead I recieved a guest book and so now I don't knwo if I'll get my pen in time.  Out of town guests start arriving tomorrow and I don't have any welcome baskets or bags for them and at this point don't even care!  And to top it all off I'm still waiting on RSVP's.  Oh and my coordinator is on her vacation so I ahve no one to call abotu questions I have and the DOC that they gave me from my venue I fired the same day that I met her and now they gave me someone else who I don't be able to meet until Friday at my rehearsal.  Aggghhhh!  Thanks for listening ladies I'm just so glad I have you!

Awww so sorry Dina!!  At this point, I'd say forget the OOT bage and save your sanity.  That sux that your coordinator is out.  Delegate, delegate, delegate chica.  Have FI/DH call people you need RSVP's from, forget about the GM and if you don't get the B-pix in time I'm sure FI will understand.  Use another pen if you can't get the other one in...... oh yeah and breathe honey!!  Everything will be fine.  Everyone's there to see you and FI/DH get married and celebrate.

********BIG HUGS******  everything will work out.  The most important thing is that you and your FI will be there.  I know that's easy for me to say because it's not happening to me (yet), but I totally understand your frustration.  As far as the cousin goes, that was just plain rude.  What exactly makes the dresses look like shit?  Is it something fixable?

Maybe you could find someone to reverse the bow (how did they mess that up??????????) and take the hem up a little, and remove the tulle.  Personally, I like the bow on both the front and the back....the dress color is beautiful.

i know your in a tough boat (please ignore the pun, hehe), but try to remember to breathe.  I know (becuase it's happened to me) that things are always magnified by our stressed minds.  When it comes down to it, no one will remember the pen that you used to sign the guestbook or what day the B-pics arrived.  People will remember how beautiful you are and how happy the two of you look. 


In terms of the BM dresses, I'm sure they are not as bad as you are saying-- I CAN ALMOST GAURANTEE THAT NO ONE WILL EVEN NOTICE. :)


Remember this is the happiest day of your life, you will be united with the most important person in the world to you, and all will be naught on the big day.

sry... i was typing and you were posting...


i like the tiffanny color and the style of the dress.  what about taking the bow off the back and moving it to the front and taking out the chrinolin?  play around with it.  try to imagine their hair done, with flowers, smiles... they will be beautiful.

I'm going in tomorrow to talk to them my MOH was there today~ as you see~lol and she asked them to do all that and they wanted to charge her!  WTF?  The girls just paid 65 for alterations on top of the dress and now they want me to pay for their screw up!  I told them toda on th phone to take the tulle out and shorten the dress and she was argueing with me abotu how this is the way this type of dress is made and bla bla blah and that it won't look good if you remove it!  A bunch of BS so now I have to take another day off work and drive there and deal with these people!  agggh  You girls are so sweet thanks for all your support!

worst comes to worst cane you just cut the tulle out yourselves?  and have the girls wear heels, that will make it seem like its not at an awkward length...


breath********


if things don't fall into place then it wasn't meant to be...that's the way i try to look at things.  i can only imagine how stressed you are but this is your week and your day approaching and you shouldn't let anyone else damper it!


try to enjoy it the best you can!

Okay breathe! I had some problems this week too!


Guest book - I ordered it from mypublisher, didn't pay for expedited shipping and it got here in three days, if you expedite it, it could be sooner


Dress - honestly, it looks like the picture to me and its very pretty


Visas - we just had the same problem with a very close friend in Hong Kong.... he's not coming anymore. I know that doesn't help but the US Gov is a behemoth and a wedding ruin-er! I'm very very sad about this too.... and they may be doing it to my BM's FI.... because he is trying to fly from Cairo :(


RSVP's - if they haven't yet, they never will... I had to realize this today and just cross a bunch of people off the list so we're only at 46... haha my bridal party is 12... yea I'm not super thrilled about it but that's what happens with a destination wedding, we started with 70.


Family OOT - if you really want to do out of town bags, buy a bunch of maps and souveniers, a couple packs of candies or bottled water and throw them into paper kraft bags from the grocery store and tie a bow on them! Otherwise, if you don't care, have fun!


Cleaning - call another housekeeper, when in doubt

Thanks ladies!  I just need to remember that its about spending the rest of my life with the man I love and finally having a nice wedding with all our friends and famiies.  It was just such a stressful and hard day for me.  You all knwo how to make me feel better~ thanks.  I think I feel much better.  Tomorrow I'm goign to go deal with the dresses.  Hopefully the books will get here in time and I'm over the OOT bags :(  I'm just so sad abotu my FG.  Even my dad wrote a letter to them and he is a legislator and they didn' do anything for us :(  we even asked one of the congressmen to write a letter on offical leter head and nothing~ whats the deal??? but I just want to stop stressing out. I was just hoping to be done with everythign by now~ but of course ~NOT!
