So I’m going to a bunch of related events at my wedding venue this weekend. They’re all related to an exhibition of my grandmothers work. The communication of the schedule of events for this weekend has me seriously worried about them pulling off my wedding.
Then again, it could just be my family and their terrible communication skills.
It’s driving me nuts, the times of things keep changing, no one knows who has to be where when (although the itinerary for my grandmother does seem pretty organized).
I really hope this is a problem with my family and not my venue.

I had the same thing, however, my issue is HEAT!
We’re getting married in a barn and when we booked it, it was a warm gorgeous Sept. day. Well my mom and I went back in Dec for an open house and it was freeezing. The place has no heat (but may by my Nov. 7 wedding) and had these big ugly things blowing hot air all around…needless to say, I’m worried!
Early Nov. in NJ is verrrry hit or miss. Could be 60 degrees, could be 25.

@MsGinkgo: More than likely, its the playing telephone. The more people a message has to go through to reach someone, the more crazy it gets.
The venue told your mom A.
So she tells you, your Aunt, your sister and your uncle A.
But Uncle calls too, and he is told B, so he tells your aunt, and your mom B.
Your mom tells you B, but forgets to tell your sister.
Your aunt calls your sister and asks her what the plan is because she can’t find the piece of paper that she wrote it on.
Your sister tells your Aunt plan A.
Your mom also lost her sheet of paper, and calls your aunt. Through talking, they somehow get plan A and B mixed into the same plan, so when you call to find out what time your mom is picking you up, you get the AB plan, and no one bothers to call the venue back to see what the plan is.

Have a timeline for your day, put somebody in charge of it and don’t sweat the small stuff because… THINGS WILL GO WRONG…. at the end of the day… just try to enjoy yourself. My hubbby and I decided not to sweat the small stuff for that day. If you know your family is somewhat disogranized then I suggest putting someone i charge who is a task master and whose feelings won’t be hurt easily. Good Luck and Congrats.. But don’t worry it will all come together.

@creeative1: and your venue will usually ask you for the timeline of what you want to occur and when you wan’t it to occur… get your timeline to them as soon as possible.. perhaps your grandmother didn’t do that.
