O.k so my church has been a pain in my butt, they have been little to no help and everytime I try to make an appt it takes them a month to get back at me! Well today i called since its less than a month till my wedding just to get all my questions answered and on a whim I ask when the florist can come in to set up….she says well theres a quinceanera at 1..I am like Uh my wedding is at 2:30! The quinceanera will take an hour so that will go on to 2 and then they will want to take pictures!!! When is my lady going to set up? What if the church is dirty( I don’t know why it would be dirty lol just sayin)..who will clean it up? Aaaaah is tight scheduling like this the norm? Will it be Ok? Just tell me everything will be ok!

It will be okay!!
Is it a Catholic church? If so then yes! Tight scheduling is the norm! Have you already printed up invites? Could you push it back to 3?
Even if its a mess and the florist can’t start setting up, it really won’t take that long to clean and decorate.
Call the girl’s famiyl who is doing the quinceanera, congratulate her and then ask the mom how long she thinks pictures will take. Explain you are having your wedding at 2:30 and ask her if it would be okay that while they are taking pictures, you have a few people help pick up the pews and such. Meanwhile, your florist could do pew arrangements (if you are having them) and that shouldn’t get in the way of the pictures. Then the florist will just have to plop down a few arrangements on the altar which should take about .5 seconds.
Tell the mom that you don’t want your wedding to draw away any attention from her big day, so if she could someway encourage guests not to linger so that your guests won’t be trying to come in while they are coming out.
