- Wedding: August 2014
I jsut need to vent about my first world wedding problems. Sigh. Sorry for the long post.
I just had the most awkward phone call with my photographer. Okay, it’s really not that bad in the scheme of things. But he had me on speakerphone and I could barely understand a word. He kept recalculating everything because he wasn’t sure and I couldn’t quite understand him so I have no idea if the bill is right. I wish he would just email me!
The main thing is he was going to make a book with our engagement pictures that would be the guest book for the reception. We talked about that like 6 months ago. And I am pretty sure I sent him an email with the pictures we had selected though there is no way to know since my email does not save sent emails. Today I emailed him to make sure he had made the guest book and he called me frantically about it and how he was going to rush order it but he was doing us such a favor by not charging us for the rush order. Fortunately I still had the list of pictures we wanted in my computer, so an easy fix, but the way he was being on the phone was making me so anxious. And then telling us how much the guest book is. And it is expensive! So then I just took it as a sign. I was trying to be my go with the flow, don’t let stuff get to you type bride, so I said, why don’t we just scratch the guest book, it’s not the end of the world. And he started freaking out. And I tried to insist. And he insisted back that we had to have this, how we could pay him back later. And I kept saying no. And then he said he would make it for free. What am I supposed to say to that? It was so awkward. So I end up just giving in. Did he guilt me into this guest book or is that all just me? Because I feel awful right now and I am trying to stay calm finishing things up for our wedding that is 13 days.
And then to top it off he conversationally asked me when I am arriving for our wedding (it’s semi-DW) and he is like “you’re cutting it close!” and in my head I was like “No f-ing kidding it’s cutting it close! That’s life! It’s not like I get unlimited time off from work!” but I just calmly said “Well I have to be at work.”
All this while only hearing half of what he was saying because he was yelling into the phone on speakerphone. I feel like he should be paying me for not getting angry at him through all these shenanigans.
I think he is really disorganized right now because he is retiring soon but I just don’t need this right now. End rant. Thank you bees.
