@7monthbride:  Best wishes to you, too! I’m in 3 days here, and I’m running around like a mad hen. Did you at least take the day before off?

@7monthbride:  Thank you so much for your kind words! I really hope it is everything I’ve planned for over a year.  *crosses fingers* I’ve done a ton of DIY and kept costs really down with heavy hors d’ouvres and a vienesse table, plus chocolate fountain and wedding cake and mocktails. Very stylish fall, between mealtimes – 2PM ceremony, reception til 7pm.

AGREED!  I’m only here Monday / Tuesday, though, then traveling to the my parent’s home at the beach for our wedding!  Can’t concentrate worth anything!

I KNOW!!! Tomorrow (Tuesday) is my last day. I’m sort of a destination wedding since it’s out of state (I live in PA, the wedding is MD). I’m so dissapointed- I have to attend a software webinar during my lunch break tomorrow. I was really hoping to have that mental break away from the office to take my lunch and get myself excited. I hope tomorrow goes as quickly as today did.

Good luck October 20th gals!

Oh, my goodness. I have been so frazzled this week. I have limited vacation time so I am just taking off Thursday and Friday, and I really, really, really wish I had more time off! I am drowning in e-mails from our family and friends. I am trying my best to stay on top of it but I can’t! (This is after encouraging everyone to contact our mothers with questions/comments instead of us!)

Only a few days to go…hoping to make it through in one piece. Wink

I feel the same way!!! I took yesterday and today off to finish projects (yet here I am blowing the day away on the internet!!)  I have to work Wed, Thurs, and half a day on Friday.  We are leaving for our honeymoon on Sunday for a week so I had limited vacation time to use!! ARG!!! I don’t want to go back to work tomorrow!!

I got a call to come into work this morning to lead some training class for 2 hours, right in the middle of major caterer drama. Awful.

I totally agree, my boss asked me why was I working this week. Lol, she has been kicking me out of work since Monday. However, I have been working pretty much half days all week but tomorrow is my last day. I’ve been going to bed at like midnight since Sunday.

@7monthbride:  Yeah, it did get worked out, after they sent me a final invoice of $1383 owed – $700 over budget (I’m not counting the tax and grats, those were def expected…) So, I cut the soda, ice tea, and lemonade. We’re already paying them to have signature drinks (Pumpkin Juice and Butterbeer from Harry Potter, and iced water, coffee, and hot tea.) I recall asking them not to charge us for it, or serve it, so that was a miscommunication.   The other extra costs are because she decided she was going to have a 100 person minimum for food, and I had calculated on our 63 guests.  Whatever. I paid the extra $400 after I cut the soda.  It pissed me the %&*@ off, though. I’m telling people – EAT. Eat it all!
