Fiance has yet to ask his dad if the guys can get ready at their house…and Future Father-In-Law and family just left to go out of town yesterday, and they won’t be back until right before the rehearsal on Thursday. That’s nice, glad I found that out last minute after you offered to help set up the reception venue and take me for a mani/pedi. Sigh.

Talked to our coordinator last night about a few details*, and she emailed me late last night with revised copies of paperwork, room layout, etc., and said that our final payment is $xxx and she’ll charge it to the card I gave her last week for the final payment on the venue (which was $yy before our bar tab). I hope I caught her in time because that’s FI’s card and he will KILL me if that goes through on there, rather than my card that we earmarked for this. That’s why I told her last night that I would get her the form for the card we were going to use TODAY. Bahhhhh.

*I feel so bad for her. She had a meeting at 6:30 and was going to call me at 7. At 6:45 she emails me and asks if she can call me at 7:30. No problem. At 7:15 she emails me to say that her 6:30 meeting is running late and won’t be there until 7:30, can she call me after. I go to bed around 8, so unfortunately, no. She says she’ll just call then and they can wait for her since they were late. We chat, and at the end, she says that she just got an email from them that they won’t be there until 7:45. Bleh! I don’t even know if they actually showed up.

There are no sedan/limo companies in this town that can pick you up and drop you off. 4 hour minimums all around. I think we’re going to take a cab.

@lolot:  Whatever! I totally know how you feel. I mean, I haven’t done that great at dieting for this wedding, but everything that has went into my mouth has been accompanied with a feeling of remorse and guilt. BUT-in exactly nine days I will be on a boat where the food is ALL INCLUSIVE and I’m going to eat until my little hearts content and then some and not feel bad about it AT ALL! 🙂

DJ messaged me this morning with the completely wrong venue information. I quickly corrected him but geez! How hard is it to find a reliable wedding vendor? We have ended up with a bunch of freebies due to people’s incompetence/disorganization, but is it worth the frustration? We will see!

 

Food, yeah. Family lunches, dinners, BBQ’s, late night stress munching. I think I might go buy some spanx today before we head to the venue!

@TaurianDoll:  <3 I’m sorry, honey. If I could help, I totally would. I need to get this place cleaned up in the next couple of days so that we can come home to a clean apartment, but I just don’t want to. :

My advice to you: Rest and take some time to yourself, however it needs to be done.  Even if it’s going to a bakery to have a coffee and a danish for 30 minutes of you time.

@TaurianDoll:  Nice. That won’t happen here lol. I did a lot yesterday, and I think a good vacuum will help–we have beige carpet and black cats, so the carpet looks dirty from all of the fur until it gets vacuumed. The computer room is going to stay messy until we get the chance to go through our wedding gifts, though.

Already married, but here’s a vent surrounding my wedding…

I guess my mom decided it’s time to make up for all of that time she remained civil. Sounds like she’s been drinking, and now she’s crawling ALL OVER ME because there aren’t any pro pictures of her & I… YET.

Even professional $2k-$3k photographers have a usual processing time of 6-8 weeks for the entirety of the set. I paid $100 for mine, and it’s someone I know, who also works a job and raises a family on the side. I do photograpy myself, so I’m completely hands-off, considering it’s only been two weeks. They’ll be done when they’re done.

However, he did give me a set from JUST the ceremony. Now, the ceremony mostly consisted of my father walking me down the aisle, and then just my husband and I. So yes, there are pictures of us. My mom and I didn’t take any pictures until after (because, you know, I was busy marrying the man of my dreams). I realized this when I decided to put them up. In fact, I went out of my way to message her and explain to her that I DID NOT want her to feel left out, and that there aren’t any just yet but the photographer is editing them and wanted me to have some to share.

Apparently, instead of sharing the joy with those who attended and those who could not, I should have simply sat on them. She was fine with it at first, but now (only a couple of days later) she’s throwing an absolute shit fit temper tantrum over it. She’s chosen to express this by slamming me/my father/my photographer on facebook. Why should she have to wait so long? Where are all of the pictures? How dare I not care about her enough??!!?! WHY didn’t I post any pictures of HER when I posted pictures from the honeymoon?!?! (Sorry, I didn’t realize she went on our honeymoon too… ??!)

I had already told her what the deal was (I chose to post a few while waiting for the rest, nothing was personal or meant as a slight against her or anyone, I have no part in editing), and then told her I was done arguing. She chose to take it to FB, so I just sent her another private message: “Hi, mom. I don’t want to discuss it on FB either.” Following that, she had a complete meltdown about how I said she meant nothing to me, etc. etc., basically COMPLETELY making up things I NEVER said or even DREAMED about saying.

All I could say was, “I have no idea what you’re talking about. I never said any of that. I have literally never said any of those things.” And all she could do was continue to rant about these lies she’s invented in order to feel justified in getting upset at me.

Ugh. The fact that I went out of my way to include her in every step of my wedding makes this such a slap in the face. These pictures were meant to be a joyous thing (they made me cry on the airplane home, after all). And I still don’t feel it was inappropriate to share them– given that I stated SEVERAL TIMES that these were NOT the complete pictures, that I DO realize people are missing, and that they ARE going to be in the complete set of pictures.
