- Wedding: November 1999
Happy thanksgiving everyone. I hope yours and was better than mine.
First of all, my uncle told me tonight that I need to make room for a close family friend. Uhh, dont’ know if I can do that. I told my caterer the exact table numbers on Wednesday.
Found out that one of my bridesmaids, thinks she has strep and will be going to to doctors tomorrrow to see if she has it. Oh, now she is unsure if she can make it to the rehearsal tomorrow. Oh, if she has strep, she doesnt want to get everyone sick so she wont’ be able to go to the wedding. Oh, she is also a reader for my ceremony. Luckily, I asked someone that I had as a back up tonight and she said she can do it. (Thank you!)
I told all of my bridesmaids that I am renting a room so that we could have a sleepover the day before the wedding. I asked everyone that I will need help assembling place cards, foldig programs, doing last minute stuff. My sister, the girl that is now sick and one other BM said they were interested. I have 8 bridesmaids and only 3 can do it… or only 3 offered to do it? I’m not even telling them they have to stay for the sleep over, just to come over and help when they can.
Anyway, now my sister doesn’t know if she can come… the bridesmaid who is sick probably won’t go. So now I have only 1 bridesmaid that can help me. Really?
I’m about to go insane.
I have to admit, my bridesmaids really haven’t done anything. I didn’t have a shower. A few of my BM were planning it but it fell through. I haven’t really asked them of much besides doing the usual, like they have to pay for their dress and alterations. I planned this wedding from across the country so I couldn’t delegate any tasks because most of the BM were out of the state too. But I figured that they would all come rushing to my side when I asked for it like the week before the wedding.
I am really doubting the bridesmaids that I chose. yes, i understand that it is a holiday weekend and they are busy with their famiy but can’t i ask for some type of help. 5 min, 10, 30 min… anything.
Maybe I’m pissed because I feel like a loser that only 2 of my bridesmaids were able to come out to my bachlorette party. Yes, some had plans, some couldn’t make it, most are out of town. Even the friends that are not my bm weren’t able to make it besides the one girl who is now a reader for me. She is the one person I am so thankful for today.
I have a to do list that is long considering I have the rehearsal tomorrow and the luncheon afterwards.. I need help from my bridesmaids and none are helping.
I really wanted to get together with them, since some just came into town. To relax and to get them all on the same page. I don’t think that’s going to happen.
I have some non-bm friends that I can ask. But it sucks that my BM aren’t helping me out when i need it.
🙁 stressed, angry with myself, overwhelmed, depressed.
