- Wedding: June 2013
So last week I was crying because the dinosaur hall where we are having our reception suddenly has an exhibit being refurbished until September and there’s a giant ugly construction site taking up a quarter of our space. But I managed to reconcile myself to it.
Today I find out that our church, after already having double-booked our wedding ceremony and us having to reschedule to an earlier (and more inconvenient) time in the morning (since the other couple booked theirs first), which we dealt with a couple of months ago, has ALSO double-booked our rehearsal the night before. I mean, come on people. How hard is this? It’s not bloody rocket science. So I had a big teary about having to move the rehearsal as well (again, to a more inconvenient time, since we have already booked the rehearsal dinner), and finally I snapped and told my fiance that he had to push back and ask that the other couple move their rehearsal, since we had to move our ceremony already.
And I am torn, because this other (I’m sure, lovely) couple have made all their plans too, I’m sure, but I felt like we were very accommodating when we moved our ceremony early enough to leave them plenty of time to come in and set up for their ceremony, instead of butting right up against their time. Which does cut into our hair and make-up time and now I will be running around like a chicken with my head chopped off all morning racing to make the 11am ceremony. But they may have booked their rehearsal first (I have no idea when they booked it, but they had their ceremony booked before us) in which case it’s hard on them to have to make way for the people who booked later.
What do you think? Is it a lot to ask that they move their rehearsal, seeing as we moved our ceremony? This is so frustrating since it’s all the church’s bloody fault anyway, and now two couples are left scrambling and rearranging plans to fix their mistake. 🙁
