- Wedding: December 2010
Not my marriage…just the wedding. It’s driving me nutso. This is a vent…which I’ve never done here before, but I just called my FH at work and that’s not fair…so I’m doing it here.
We’re doing a heavy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres party that starts at 8pm right in the downtown core. AND THE COMPLAINTS HAVE STARTED TO COME IN.
“Why couldn’t it have been a little further north/west/east?” -because we really wanted it to be in the heart of the city we live in and easy for our friends to get to. Our friends complained when we wanted to have it far away (many don’t own cars, etc)…we were trying to make things easier…clearly that has not worked.
“Why is the hotel so expensive?” – compared to other downtown hotels, it’s (hopefully) going to be super nice and is in the middle of the range. You certainly can stay somewhere else if you’d like.
“I’ll have the new baby, so what would happen if we showed up 30 minutes before 8pm?” – Ummm…you’ll get to see the last minute set up stuff happen. I won’t be there.
“8pm…isn’t that really late for all the older people?” -we wanted people to understand that it’s a cocktail party (not expect a sit down dinner) and the “older people” seem to be excited about the party…just saying.
Honestly, I’m just tired of all the details (I’m trying to do a lot of this myself and/or on the cheap) because I want to save money, but it’s really difficult to think about all the pine cones I still need to glitter, the favours, my dress (which is being remodeled as it is a sample that is too big and not completely what I want)…etc. My venue is being a pain in the ass (again, nice people, but I feel like I have to chase them down for any information). I’m just overwhelmed. People keep asking if I’m having fun….which I think is…funny. lol ’cause it’s not. 🙂
I don’t mean to complain about my inlaws (but I will), because they are lovely people, but they are so hands off and not involved that it’s extra work trying to keep them in the loop and in the know (for hair appointments, the wedding dinner the night before the reception, etc). They actually DO have opinions, but it’s only after the research is done that you hear about it.
I know that in the grand scheme of things these problems aren’t that big of a deal, but I’m just over thinking/worrying about the wedding in a big way. I wish that it werejust here already.
Vent/Rant/Crying/Hair pulling over. I’m going for a run. 🙂
