Checks! Long! PIB!

- We had our final meeting with the priest. It was quick and went well, but I found out something I am worried about - the priest won't be at the rehearsal!!!! I have NEVER heard of this before. I have actually heard that our priest has a tendency to mess up ceremonies (forget traditions and skip over parts) so I am a little worried now. We are doing the mantilla and we are also having a prayer for Andrew's father, two things I would be VERY upset about if they were forgotten. I hope everything goes smoothly. I'm just annoyed because we have had to meet with him 100 times and do so many preparations, and he can't even be at the rehearsal? Ugh. - We assembled the programs last night!! PIB under "Ceremony" and "DIY". I think they look great! The best part is, they required NO cutting. We just had to fold them and attach a ribbon - We prepped the favor boxes for assembly. We are going to stuff them with chocolate and put the ribbon on the outside tomorrow evening. We don't want them to get ants before I bring them to the hotel on Tuesday. - Andrew bought his tux!!! He got it from the Hugo Boss store in the Aventura Mall. He looks AMAZING in it. He is having alterations done and will be able to pick it up on Monday night. I feel like we are going to look like rock stars! :) I think that's it for now. We are moving in more stuff to the apartment this week and I have a few more checks to make, but I'm practically done! Oh and I updated the "Vendors & Reviews" section again in my bio. I'm trying to keep it as up to date as possible so I don't forget any of the details :)

    Sounds like you're ready to me!!  LOLAbout the priest, it's a tough one and I can totally see your concern.  Our priest (who is a close, personal friend) didn't come to our rehearsal either.  He did things a little differently the day of (had my godparents hand us the Offertory and then we handed it to him and other small stuff) but we just went along with it.  Can you ask Andrew (or someone else) to speak with him before the ceremony to remind him about the prayer and the mantilla??  Kind of just as a casual recap without being too pushy.  And the other thing I was thinking, do your programs list those "events"??  If so, be sure someone gives the priest a program.  They can even lay an additional program on the lectern and one on his seat.  We do that at work for all the events and it keeps our priest on track.

    Ugh the priest thing annoyed me to NO END. All the meetings were NOTHING about the ceremony, that's why I am worried. We just talked about the ceremony at this last meeting for 15 minutes. He wrote down what we wanted, but I have heard a couple of disaster stories from friends. Hopefully Letty can like run up towards the altar or something and throw the mantilla on us if there is an issue lol.

    Mirian, the priest specifically said for nobody to bring their own readings and for nobody to put programs anywhere! I am sure Letty will handle it though, somehow.

    Congrats on all the checks! I would be in a slight panick about the priest NOT attending the rehearsal. I've been driving my priest nuts about everything b/c, 1) I'm a new Catholic, and 2) our priest tends to be absent-minded (but not during regular mass, thank god).

    Wow. I'd be annoyed about the priest too. I am sure everything will turn out okay. I agree to have someone to remind him quickly before the ceremony.I can't believe you are so close!!

    Ay, que pesado!!  LOL  Whatever!!  Have Andrew or Letty just check on those 2 things before the ceremony and I'm sure everything will be fine.  At this point, it's best to let it go so you can relax this week.

    Erika, that's pretty standard. Almost all churches are like that! Mirian, I have let it go. I just pray it will be smooth!
