About to lose my mind with 8 days to go!!!

Our wedding MC says he has to leave our wedding early and so he can't be the MC. Our ASL interpreter says his GF broke up with him and he is too devesated to interpret. My MOH calls and says the bus is full so she can't make the wedding. I STILL DON'T HAVE SHOES!!!! 

I literally feel like the wedding is falling down around me. 

2 good notes: my bridesmaid from St. Lucia arrived Weds. safe and sound and we got our marriage license today. 

Help me out guys. I need some major good vibes.

    Sending vibes your way! Do you have contracts with both of those vendors? I don't think they can just pull out on you like that.

    Don't let your MOH stress you, she has known your wedding date for a while so she had plenty of time to buy her bus ticket. Can she take the train? or rent a car? No worries, your shoes will come! If there is an off broadway shoe store near you I would check there, they have a large selection of special occasion shoes.

    OH WOW. Deep breaths and Happy thoughts coming your way. the devil is a liar and you will have the wedding of your dreams with or without your MOH shame on her or interpreter. Is there a family member that can MC for you or even a close friend? What kind of shoe are you looking for I can hop on the web and do some searching most stores will have it to you in the week and if not rush delivery is always available.

    A family member or friend who is out going can MC.  You work in the ASL community right?  See if someone else can interprete for you.  BUMP THE MOH!!  She is wrong for even putting any more stress on you.  You have your BM go with them and don't worry about her.  If she can get in where she fits in then good if not KEEP IT MOVIN!!!

    Now the shoes we can all help you with that. Give us your shoes size, and some clues to what you are looking for.  I am sure between the ladies on here we can help you find something that can be shipped to you in time. 

    Take a deep breath and tackle each problem one at a time.  What can be fixed fix what can't move on the most important that is that you are marrying the man you love.  I'm praying for you.  Sending you (((HUGS)))

    Thanks ya'll. My shoe size is 10 but really 9 1/2 in a flat. I need a cute flat shoe. I wanted blush pink but now I will settle for anything. My mom just walked past me and said its going to rain next Saturday. Way to make me feel good! Its only a thirty percent chance, though. 
    As far the MC and interepreter goes they were close friends..maybe that's where I went wrong, LOL. 

    I am going to keep you guys updated on my MOH. I am feeling so overwhelemed.
