- Wedding: March 2010
So here I am, my mind ready to melt. Yesterday, after six months of unemployment, I’m taking tests and prepping to go back to work this Wednesday, I find out a real good friend of mine and her fiance suddenly set a date last weekend to make their bond official at the courts, for SURPRISE, Wednesday.
Being as all the bridesmaids are out of town, I’ve been unemployed as of late, and because I’ll be missing out on the small affair (I was originally supposed to be a witness), I offered my services (I’m also the only one with a car, you know, downtown life). She’s trying to get arrangements done in 3 days for the small ceremony. It’s a first once in a lifetime thing for her, so even though the main wedding will be in Korea on October she still wants this one to be simply perfect (the groom would prefer perfectly simple).
We bought her dress yesterday, it’s been taken to be altered, we made an appointment for the stylist, and have yet to solidify the makeup. She wants to do trials today, if possible. I’m in the spot where I’m not sure what to tip these people as I feel as though we are pressing these people for time in things that normally take more planning. Maybe it’s something I should have asked at the time of making the appointment, but are the trials free? If so how much do I tip them? How much on the day of? I’m thinking 20%, but not sure. Do I tip the alterations person? Ah yes, and I’m a guy with no sense in fashion or style, so it just makes it all weirder and more convoluted. I’d probably just walk in there with t-shirt ‘nd jeans, and ask for me papers. ;p
Confused but thankful for your time,
-smile for every moment you miss. laugh for every tear you shed. dance for every regret you shoulder. love every moment you live.
