NEED SOME LOVE!

I'm officially declaring that my wedding is a bride's WORST nightmare....not one thing has gone right! With only a week to go, it is as though I'm starting from the very beginning!!

wedding planners gone, photographer out, head count for reception dropping like you wouldn't believe it, hotel room issues, the list simply goes on and on....yes, I am even admitting that a LV wedding is a mistake, I'm spending $20K and have nothing but stress

Has anyone gone down this road or have any solutions on getting thru it?

    Ok, slow down, I'm so sorry things are not turning out as expected. What can we help you with? Do you need a photographer, hotel? How many are attending now?

    I don't even know where to begin...

    we've been having problems with the hotels and are being sorted as we speak.

    photographer - YES, need one desperately...I really don't want or can spend a thousand dollar on cashman photos.

    RSVP deadline was 10/1/10 and we had 51 confirmed, and gave that to my caterer...then over the past weekend, the number went down to 44!

    Take a deep breath.  Have you contacted any photographers? I would email and call all over the place.

    You know, we spent more on Vegas than we originally thought we would, but it was still less than we would have at home.

    Anniversary

    First off :::Deep Breath::: Then...Who have you already called for Photo's? I would say you should check with the usual suspect..MikeL, Todd, Deacon, Joey Allen.

    Next...Call the cater and explain...maybe they will work with the new number OR you can get some upgrades.

    I agree, take a moment and breathe.  How can we help you?   You're getting married at the Wynn right?  Do you need another contact for the salon?  Your planner should have had very detailed notes on your plans so hopefully someone can step in and fill her place, but all this happenning right before the wedding is stressful.

    Ditto what other ladies said, call photogs immediately and then call caterer and see about upgrades to account for less people

    You could also try Highland Photography/Jill Jennings. She was very easy to work around my budget. Just google her. Best of luck, deep breathes

    Another photog, Dott Photography, see if she can take a last minute wedding on a budget. I think the caterer will understand that counts will change until a few days before (I have to give mine 3 days before).

    thx for the support.

    I"ve checked with the usual photographers and they are unavailable.

    yes, i am getting married at the wynn and the ladies there are trying to make the transition as smooth as possible, but it just really sucks when it's this late in the game.

    waiting to hear back from caterer to see what they can do from me.

    John Morris, Digs and Imagine studios are also photographers options. Not much of a contribution, I'm sorry. I'm sure the caterer can accomodate your new guest count, you can't possibly be the first one to have to make adjustments! And I trust the Wynn staff to handle everything well, don't worry. You can always turn to us for help/advice!

    If no one else works out, my friend Jacob might be able to help? He doesn't have wedding stuff on his website but he's doing ours and he's done several in the past. www.jacobkepler.com
