- Wedding: October 2010
The little things are starting to add up…
So I was supposed to have my flower proposal Monday…they called that day and said we’d get it later that day. We’ve emailed them since then, called them earlier today, and now I called again this afternoon. Still waiting…..
The RSVP deadline was a few days ago, and of course some folks haven’t responded yet, which is common. But in some of those cases it’s because they probably haven’t decided yet. For instance, one of the groomsmen is on the fence as to whether or not to bring his Girlfriend.
A couple people aren’t thrilled with the hotel that we got the block of rooms in. It was the best option, and most people are okay with it. But I think some folks wanted to stay in Austin to have fun in the town, even though that’s even further from the wedding. People don’t have to stay in the hotel we selected-they’re free to find their own lodgings. We picked what seemed best for everyone based on price, location, block of room availability, online reviews, etc. Plus it’s got a bar and restaurant inside, so if people want to drink at other times over the weekend they only have to worry about picking a designated elevator button pusher instead of a designated driver. 😉
What’s really been tough though is my Aunt’s cancer prognosis took a turn for the worst. We’ve known for awhile now that she probably wouldn’t be up to traveling, but two weeks ago they discovered the cancer had spread to her lungs, and she has one or two months left. It’s hardest on my mom, it’s her only sister, and she lives too far away to just stop by and visit. We were going to drive down this weekend to see her (16 hr one way) but she wasn’t feeling up to visitors so we stayed in town. While having wedding planning has been a good distraction for my mom, she gets more stressed out about these little glitches/snags than she usually would. The whole situation is just heartbreaking.
Well, thanks for letting me vent. I know the flower thing will straighten itself out, and the hotel will be fine (and the people who are going to complain would just complain no matter what), and eventually everyone will RSVP 😉 and everything will come together. And I know these are just minor things compared to what’s going on, but as I said, things are hard enough for my mom right now, it would be nice if all this wedding stuff would not cause any extra stress.
