I guess it’s not really drama, exactly.
Some clothes that I brought with me to the wedding (9+ months ago!) never made it back to my house. The dress I wore to rehearsal dinner, some cardigans, etc. I figured someone probably accidentally walked off with them when my family was packing stuff up and since it wasn’t a big deal, I didn’t pursue it.
My mom just recently has told me that she had brought several photo albums that never found their way back. I didn’t know that! I am contacting the venue and various family members who helped with packing things up to see if someone accidentally wound up with them … but I feel like if no one has said anything 9 months later, the situation looks pretty bleak.
My mom is guilting me about the potentially lost photo albums (which are my baby albums) and she also just shared with me that apparently, she had $800 tucked in an envelope in the photo album (?????). I’m stressed and I want the pictures back too, but I feel helpless and I’m furious that my mom is guilting me. She should have kept track of the stuff she brought … Lord knows I had enough on my plate!
Enough complaining, I guess …. just keep me in your thoughts? It would be so sad to lose my baby albums forever.

It seems like a lot could have happened to them in the course of 9 months though. I hope housekeeping didn’t accidentally throw all those things away while you were taking care of other things.
Why did she wait so long to realize and tell you? Why would she need to bring your baby albums to your wedding? Is it possible that she misplaced them a different way? I hope you find them!

craigslistgirl: She put them on the display table where we had our engagement pictures and the guest book. I remember her asking me to bring my husband’s photo albums also … because that’s when I realized he didn’t have any and I made him some! Lol!
This is a non-traditional venue – it’s a family’s lake lodge that they use for events, not your standard corporate hotel thing. They don’t do weddings super often at all. I emailed them and have texted a few relatives, so hopefully something turns up …
I don’t know why she waited so long to tell me. She wants to come look through all the boxes of wedding stuff that are in my garage. I have no idea what’s in there exactly, but since I’ve been selling wedding decor, I feel like I would have stumbled across photo albums and noticed that’s not where they should be …
Gah! Fingers crossed, everyone!
