So, I don't go over to the NJ board that often, unless I absolutely have to get information from them. I popped over there the other day to ask for help filling in my 4 hour gap for my guests before our evening reception and got ripped a new one. I just don't understand how they can rip you a new one when they don't even know you. I clearly (or so I thought) explained I had tried everything to shorten the gap but was unsuccessful. Not to mention I tried to get a hospitality suite so guests had something to do before cocktail hour, but that couldn't be done because there is a wedding going on before my reception, so the rooms I would want to use will be used by them (they booked an extra meeting room for a kids babysitting room/activity room so the kids have something "kiddy" to do. Which I think is great. (I didn't tell them about the kiddy room because it wasn't necessary). I've tried everything and can't do anything to help the gap. After the ceremony we're going to our local bar/bowling alley (same place as our rehearsal dinner) for pictures, drinks and Free Bowling (as of last night). We are going to invite those that want to do something before checking in to the hotel (which is 30-45 minutes from the church) to join us, but who knows who will actually come with us.
I just can't believe they'd be so rude/nasty. I actually started crying because they were being so nasty. I'm appalled. It hurts to think that they can't read and understand. As my FI says - they have computer muscles. Since they don't know you IRL they can bash you all from the safety of being in front of their computer screen. Talk about cyber bullying.
Argh. 37 days from my wedding and now I feel bad for not having something nice for guests to do between the ceremony and reception.
