- Wedding: April 2013
Ladies… I am so frustrated I just have to vent a little.
I am getting Married April 26th, 2013… it is coming up!
My Fiance and I chose to get married and have our reception at our church to save money and make things easier. Our church has a pretty hall that will work nicely that opens to lovely gardens.
Things began well, we started our counseling in May, another session in July, and were told to email the pastor in November to schedule another, he then in November says lets talk the week of the 14th of January for a good day. That week comes around and he tells me “what do you know, booked until February! How about the week of the 8th?” I suggest a few dates and don’t hear back for a week and a half… then receive an email from the church that he’s resigning!
After a mini freak out I contact one of the other pastors who says he’d love to marry us. That’s really all he said… so we see him this Sunday and he seemed a bit surprised by how soon our date is… (really?!) asked me to email him Sunday which he did… he has yet to respond, also left him a voicemail yesterday… I just want to meet with him since now we have a NEW pastor to meet with and finish counseling with…
Also, I guess they really don’t have receptions in the hall… they have tables and chairs and that’s it, and I still don’t know what the exact price will be (old pastor never followed through on finding that out)…
So stressed because I have my invites already and am preparing to send them out soon, and perhaps my irrational fear is that it will all fall apart and not happen there! I just hate the LACK of communication, it really stresses me out… would love to know that I’m not alone in this or get some tips as to how to handle them without seeming like a bridezilla!
