I’m sorry 🙁 We all have weeks like this. I know it sucks, but look at it like this; things can only get better.

Oh My! I’m amazed that you are still functioning enough to document a week like that.

You have my empathy.

I’m not sure I understand correctly the issue with the invitations, but would it be possible to put the stamp in the correct corner and use a coordinating sticker in the opposite corner?

I am sorry you had such a bad weekend.

Michaels is really good with returns so I would take the invites back. I actually had great success with BRIDE’s DIY invites from Michaels so don’t write them off just yet! Just check the boxes before you purchase them!

Here is a thread about Bee’s using BRIDES invites.

@dhmay: Ugh, I hate weeks like that when every little thing goes wrong! Can you take the invites back to Michaels and show them the error? Or call the company…maybe they can fix the problem?

Good luck! Things are bound to get better soon!

I did my invitations myself and just bought the pieces online at bluedot paper and LCI.  It was work, but I bought the pocketfolds and then got cardstock and cut it myself with a large slicer.

don’t worry, everything will ed up coming together, plus its better to get these things worked out now instead of right before the wedding.

i’m sorry that so many things are going badly at once! on the bustier, a seamstress may be able to alter yours so it doesn’t go higher than the dress. that would, i would think, cost less than a new bustier….good luck!

Oh no, what an awful week!

We did the BRIDES invitations from Michael’s, and they turned out great.  They are $40 for 40, but I bought them all with coupons, so I got them for about $25 a kit.  Sign up on their website and they will email you coupons.  Vistaprint is another good option for low cost invitations.

Our bridesmaids dresses were in for about a month before anyone made the trip to pick them up.  Also, they have been in since JUNE and one bridesmaid STILL hasn’t picked it up/paid it off.  Did I mention the wedding is next month!? LOL.  Oh well, sometimes you have to pick your battles.

I hope the week gets better for you very soon!

Just a thought about the bra issue…can you cut it? If it has hook and eye closeures all the way up you might be able to just cut a scoop out of the back with nice sharp sewing scissors.  If the material looks like it will fray you can use that fray stopper glue along the edge or maybe use some of that soft fashion tape and fold it over the edge.

If it helps, we got our DIY invites from Staples. I don’t remember the brand off hand, but it was $30 for 50 and we love ’em. What about having the seamstress sew some…um…support into your dress?

awww I’m sorry for the awful weekend!! I’m sure you’ll find a way to overcome everything.  Just think: life has a way of balancing itself out, which means that sometime soon, when you’re expecting a pretty crappy, awful, or boring weekend, it’ll actually turn out to be AMAZING!!!

Also, wanted to say that I can totally empathize about the priest thing.  I’m in the same situation: I’m Catholic, Fiance (plus most of the guests) isn’t.  I’ve had such bad experiences in the past with ‘mean priests’ who have a superiority complex.  I’m so thankful to have found my priest, who is absolutely AMAZING, and so inclusive, and I absolutely love him.  I know that like you, I’d be so bummed if he couldn’t be the one doing the ceremony, .  *huge hugs*

I’m sending good vibes your way – I’m sure there’s a good solution to all these problems, and everything will work out better than you thought it would!

Might not be perfect but:

Thursday: The car stinks but between borrowing cars, sharing cars, fixing it for a bit, leasing a new one, I’m sure something will work out.

Friday: Order a bra is your size online – sometimes in a strapless bra, a smaller size might work like Goddess makes size 32DDD. Take the store credit, you will need bras one day or maybe someone you know can give you cash and use some new bras.

Saturday: Go to Michaels and nicely ask to speak to a manager and show them the problem. They are pretty good.

Sunday: Ask your preist if he can talk to the other preist or talk to him yourself about how important it is that nobody is offended.
