Comedy of Errors

I'm really glad I have a good sense of humor because if I didn't I think I'd go crazy.  One thing in almost every aspect of our wedding has gone wrong.  We talk to the cake people on Monday...lets see what goes wrong then! 

Flowers:
My FI grandma (who is super sweet and is 87) is making our flowers.  They are made with love so I like them but the centerpieces she made look like they should be on top of a casket, literally they look like she snuck into a funeral home and stole them off of some poor dead woman.  They're gigantic and they're sparkly...with dew drops on them.  The bouquets have gigantic rainforest leaves with 5 flowers and she lost my pic for my bouquet so she found her own.  Picture 1980's doily gigantic and with the wrong flowers.  haha! I love her she's great, but the flowers are pretty ugly but I will use them with pride on my wedding day!

FI Ring:
I got this custom made, they forgot to size it and put the wrong size stone in it.  I"m terrified to get it engraved because knowing my luck....it'll be misspelled!

Veil:
The woman who is altering my mom's veil that I'm going to wear called me in  a panic because she doesn't know what she's doing and doesn't understand, all I want her to do is modernize it a bit...she wanted to put a ribbon around it so it would look like a pony tail hanging down. 

Bridesmaid dresses:
They came in the wrong color, also custom made. They look charcoal instead of black and the red looks awful...I'm sorry did I say red?  It looks orange, the fabric looks like it was washed....a lot.  I'm pretty sure the bridesmaids are lying when they say they love it....beacause if they do, I"m a little worried!  haha!

Shower:
So my sis, I love her to death, made the shower invites to send out and in half of them she forgot to put the information on the inside so people open a blank card. 

Suits:
All the men bought a suit because it was cheaper than renting a tux...we have a lot of tall men standing up so they couldn't find pants long enough so they just bought a size that they were going to exchange when their size was available...it hasn't been available yet.  One of the guys the pants are 4 inches above his shoes!  haha!  I just told him to wear black socks and nobody would notice!

    It's actually really funny to watch me tell people these stories in person because there is a lot of laughing and hand motions.  I'm pretty sure everyone I tell wants to come to my wedding just to see that flowers, I always tease my mom that if she makes me mad I'll just tell grandma to make her a corsage that wraps around her like a sash (grandma LOVES big flowers).

    Oh my goodness.  You are a saint.  And you are also be a role model for every B2B who is obsessing about the bridesmaid's flowers not matching the carpet at the reception venue.  =)

    I know those dew drop flowers!  I "won" a centerpiece at a functin luncheon I went to several years ago!  It had pink roses with "dew drops" on them..... I'm thinking your centerpieces are probably very similar to the one I won.

    Your list made me laugh out loud and I really needed that tonight - I am sorry for you but you made my day a bit better.

    Trae:  I also know those floral arrangements.  My nephew married a girl whose mother made all the flowers.  As she walked down the aisle, I leaned over and said to my DH "OMG, she's carrying a funeral spray!"

    She used the flowers as part of the table decor during the reception.  I am not exaggerating when I say that she placed her "bouquet" on the table in front of her, and they reached all the way to the floor.
