- Wedding: September 2013
Hello ladies, My weddings coming up in 56 days and now the issues are starting to happen. Nothing I cant handle but still feels overwhelming..
Hair/makeup: My friend who is doing hair and makeup for the wedding is charging me way to much for the hair and makeup of me and my bridal party but i made it into my wedding budget so it would work and i paid her half so far. The day of my hair trial she asks me when my bridesmaids are going to do a hair trial i told her they’re not and she flipped out saying that she didnt know how this was going to work and was mad because some of my friends cant even afford 30 for a hair trial. she then proceeded to say to me ” well maybe i’ll give you half your money back and do you and your sister (MOH) and you can find someone else to do the other two girls. this pissed me off beyond no believe but i blew it off. I showed her a picture of what I wanted my hair to look like and she end up doing something different.. its still pretty so i just said ok. Later that night after telling my fiance about what had happened during my hair/makeup trial he got mad so he called up our friend Erin whos a hair dresser as well. I told Erin the story and ended up deciding that the original girl will do my hair and makeup and everyone elses makeup while Erin would do the wedding parties hair. The original girl got mad at me when i told her this and was like ” your screwing me out of 200 i was counting on..” and blah blah. So now I guess we’ll see what will happen but I hate feeling in the middle on this I just want my wedding to go smooth and to look great and not hurt anyone feelings on the way but i guess its too late :/ as my friends put it, it was either stick with the original person and get screwed money and time wise.. or hurt some feelings a little bit but get the wedding done right.. IDK
Pastor: My fiance decided last minute that he would rather get married in a church then outside. were not religous people by any means but wants the isle and the traditional feel.. found a pastor who would marry us but he wants us to meet up with him a few times before the wedding( fine no big deal) problem is he wants us to go to church first and then meet up with him right after. we really dont want to go to church but want to get married there.. so feeling scared that if we dont go then he wont marry us then we wont have anyone ..
Flower girl: my fiance decided he wants his daughter in our wedding as the flower girl ( shes 9 years old) so he asked her if she wanted to and she wanted to wait and think about it. So in a couple weeks we asked her again and basically you can tell she doesnt care either way but only would if it meant his feelings would get hurt if not. So we basically still dont have an answer from her and if she wants to be we still have to find money, buy her a dress and all that.. my fiance keeps saying we have plenty of time but i really dont see how we do were getting close to the end..
Dress: Went for my first fitting in june and they had originally told me it was going to be $350 for the alterations ( i did not approve of this price and was going to go elsewhere but my mom wanted me to stay there), so i get there put on my dress they took 5 min to pin me together ( i have lost 30lbs so it needs to be taken in) and then when i told her i wanted other things done to it she goes yea we’ll just do that later. So i go to leave and they tell me its going to be $450 I told her i wasnt paying that because they told me $350.. they told me that because it was a lace hem that it was more money. but why would they quote me $350 when they quoted me while looking at me in the lace dress? Stupid! well i talked them down to 350 so they agreed. then they tell me not to come back again until august.. I’m not ok with this what if somethings wrong or whatever so i told them i’m coming back in july and then once more in august. I just feel like I dont want to wait last minute for my dress to be done esp. if something needs fixing..
..what do you guys think, are these all normal mishaps.. :/
