    I think that those look exactly like one of the pieces in the inspiration board you submitted.  If you wan to talk to her about how the little thingys are set up (i.e. more in a central row like the first big photo), I think that is totally cool.

    As much as I love the first look, the second one is just as nice.  Not to mention, none of your guests will have ever seen your inspiration picture so they have nothing to compare it with.  I’m sure they are all going to love this so much.  Try not to stress on this.  Trust me, at the end of the day, you will laugh that you stressed over something like this.  It’s going to look great!

    It looks exactly like the pic in the bottom left, not the top left. Could she have gotten confused? There’s no reason why she can’t put them in a box in a row instead of scattered. I think it was probably just a miscommunication.

    I voted for deal with it because I think it is actually really good. The way the burners are spaced out will be better than the close together burners for crowd flow.

    If it’s what you had clearly discussed, then I would mention it, but be prepared for her to say no, or say yes but then not actually follow through, since she didn’t listen (?) the first time.

    Hey Lady,

    I just wanted to say that I totally understand your disappointment.  I’m a very particular person and I just want what I want, especially if I have a specific vision.  I think you just have to decide whether this is something that is really important to you or whether you can just let it go.  Only you can answer that.

    If you don’t ask, it won’t change.  It doesn’t hurt to check, just realize that it may not work in their particular set up.  If you don’t ask, the answer is always no…..

    Honestly after all the details of a wedding are done, its probably not something that you would even go back to think over in the end if it doesn’t change.  Regardless, people will love it because it is a new and different idea!

    I love the smores idea. I wanted to do this actually. I really like her set up. Yours is very modern looking and nice too, but hers is neat. I’d like it.

     

    Wish you well 🙂

    I think yours will look great.  The guests will be happy to see something new and original at a wedding.

    I think you need to let her know what you liked about her tasting such as the glass containers with the smore items. But then let her know that you are more then welcome to help build the boxes to house the sternos.  Maybe she was concerned about the sternos burning someone or something.  Give her a chance to explain her option.
