- Wedding: August 2011
I’ve been holding it together since we decided to have a destination wedding, thinking that I wouldn’t get too bent out of shape by not seeing anything ahead of time and basically trusting everyone. But, of course, that’s not the case the closer we get.
Did anyone know that La Concha Crowne Plaza switched wedding coordinators? It took over a month, YES ONE MONTH! For me to finally get in touch with the new guy. Apparently, the former coordinator left for a Keys coordinator company (figures, she was awesome), and the new person was just thrown into the thick of things. Now, they’ve changed policies, and I don’t even know if any of the arrangements I made previously still stand! You can’t believe how tense I am!
Not to mention the fact that I have a pretty tight budget and have no idea how I want the reception decorated. Now, I thought that the La Concha coordinator was going to be my “savior” on that day, so I wouldn’t have to worry. But, apparently not. The new guy suggested to me, via email today, that I should probably get a wedding planner. (Breathe!) I had asked if the hotel doing small little “the party’s upstairs” decorations from the entrance to the room was still a go, and “had to check.”
Pretty much, I’m flipping out. I need to still make so many arrangements (decor) and appointments (hair), and I am counting the days and watching them go by quickly.
Does anyone have any words of wisdom for me???
