- Wedding: September 2010
Our wedding is very small, and mostly all DIY. We’re having a small, outdoor ceremony, with dinner to follow at a restaurant in their banquet room.
On the night before, Fiance & I are staying in our own villa, his kids are staying w/his mom & stepdad, and my daughter is staying w/my parents.
This means, on the morning of, I’m going to be going to my hair appt & then getting ready. Fiance is going to get ready over at his mom’s & should be helping to get his kiddos ready. My parents will handle my daughter. Future Mother-In-Law will also be taking care of making sure last minute decor & details are handled at both the ceremony site & the restaurant, FFIL will be making sure my family is able to get to the site (It’s a very small town in the mountains).
This means, I’ll be on my own to get ready & head over to the ceremony location. I really don’t want Fiance there with me while I’m getting ready, but it’s not feasible to expect my mom to be there either when she’ll be getting my daughter ready & herself ready.
One of my friends just called to say that her husband is unable to come to the wedding, so she’ll be on her own. I asked her if she might mind coming down the night before, so that I will have someone w/me the day of to help w/getting ready & getting from the villa to the ceremony site w/out having to drive myself in my dress, etc. She’s more than happy to do it. She didn’t book a room, because she was planning for her & her husband to drive down the morning of & then back after the reception. However, there are 2 extra beds in the cabin my parents are staying in, plus 2 extra rooms at Future Mother-In-Law & FFIL’s house. Talked to my mom, she’s also more than happy for my friend to stay w/them, since they know her.
Fiance thinks I’m crazy. Says he’ll be able to go for hair & help me into my dress, etc. Ummm…..I’m not ok w/that!! I know we’re not following tradition, but I still don’t really want him hanging around while I’m trying to get ready. Plus, I think he needs to be over helping his mom w/his kids if she needs it, since she’s got a full plate already.
Please tell me I’m not crazy ladies!
