Eh, I’m here and there. We’ve got everything done, basically, except a few things that don’t need to be done right this second (BM dresses, giving the GMs the tux info).
I AM stressing about money, because no one who’s offered to help will tell us how much they’ll help, so we have no idea what we’re going to have to pay for. Not winning the lottery didn’t help, haha. FI’s family is helping us out, but FI won’t talk to them about it, and FFIL is having money issues right now, and FMIL wants to play frustrating money games. I love her to death, and I really appreciate her help, but I wish she’d just be up front about it. She called in to my bridal salon and put money down on my dress back when it came in, and they sent me the receipt with NO note, so I freaked out, thinking they’d just charged her card. I went in and paid the remainder a few weeks later, and she was mad that I paid for it and not her. Uh, she knew I was going to try it on, did she think that I would just leave it unpaid? I am SO not a go with the flow person, so it’s really stressing me out.
Our reception venue got a new coordinator, who, despite what the email said, does NOT have any info about my wedding. I know that it’s still far out, but I’d like to think that the old coordinator just forwarded our giant email chain to her, wherein we discussed the room layout, tasting (which we already did with a group of other couples, though the old coordinator said there would be probably three more group tastings that we could attend), etc. She obviously didn’t get any of that info, since she sent me the link to the room layout site they use and told me to play around with it, and asked when we’d be free in January or February to do a tasting (I told her weekends only, and she told me that that probably wouldn’t be possible–uh, we did one on a weekend over the summer during wedding season? and hi, I can’t take off work for a tasting…well, I probably could), among other things. Sigh.
Other than that, I’m just working on DIY projects. I should probably contact my cousin about her doing our cupcakes, but she just had a baby in October, and I wanted to give her time. We bought my wedding band on Black Friday, and I finally found someone to make FI his (we had specific requirements that seemingly no one could do).
