Re: lolo883....

  • Mommyyyyyyyyyyy I need soothing noises. I literally just typed up a whole gahdamn temper tantrum thread because I am LOSING MY FUCKING MIND over here and my browser ate it.

    Work is a disaster. All of a sudden everybody's all "oh hey I need ALLTHISSTUFFRIGHTNOW" because they JUST fucking realized that the vacation I've had scheduled for 7 months is starting this week.

    Nothing is done. Veil. Guest book. Favors. Escort Cards. Programs. They're all started and like 75% done so there's no turning back now but GAHDAMMIT aren't some wedding fairies supposed to take care of this shit or something? I do have a card box, at least.

    I thought I had escort cards done last night. Finished typesetting them for the SECOND time after getting the diagram from the venue and realizing all the old people were smack dab under the speakers. FUCK. Re-did them, finished at 2am... then this morning a whole damn family of 5 backed out. WHAT THE FUCK. We're down 11 people in the last 4 days, DOES NOBODY WANT TO COME TO MY FUCKING WEDDING??! 

    And I sprained my ankle yesterday. Only lightly, but JFC. And now I have a zit on my face.

    @Lolo883--I was just thinking about you and am so glad @ohannabele started this thread!

     

    Everything will work out in the end and your wedding is going to be so awesome!

     

    P.S. I will come to your wedding. ;)

    Girl, you've got this! I assure you, things that need to get done will get done and things that don't won't...and you'll eventually stop giving a shit either way. Deep breaths, find a flask, and remember that in four days you get to be maaaaaarrrrried!!!

  • All of these things are normal last minute things. Put them in order of absolutely need (veil) to just want, but nobody dies if it doesn't happen (programs) and one thing at a time. 

    (I fell behind three full days schedule feeding dying cat with a medicine dropper every twenty minutes, and then zit on my nose like I haven't seen since I was 20. Aaaaaaargh.)

    It will all happen, and you will be beautiful, and nobody will ever notice if small details aren't there. The people who matter will be there. 

    Do you have reinforcement friends you can call? If I still had my flight passes I'd be there.

    Lolo- me too!!!!! Total panic mode- you saw the gluten free thread. I've asked my brother 3 times if he can get out of work early Friday for this dinner and he has not responded.

    My photographer friend who's flying up Thursday morning broke her phone 2 weeks ago and I don't believe it's been fixed (according to FB) so now I'm freaking out about picking her up at the airport and ot being able to find her, with her not having a phone.

    We were going to get mini pies to serve with dessert and FI and MOH said fuck it, don't bother.

    I need to clean the entire house because photographer friend is staying with me and we're been doing kitchen reno so it's like a bomb went off in there. That's FI's job to clean it all up in the next 2 days.

    I've been checking the weather frantically because Accuweather keeps saying no rain, and then weather.com keeps saying rain so I'm like which fucking one of you is correct?! It's an outdoor ceremony and I need to make the decision by Friday night to either pay or cancel the chair rentals. (If I cancel them, it'll be in the reception space so chairs already there).

    Corporate fired a lady and gave me her entire job....I'm like do you assholes not realize I already have a full time job? And you just gave me another full time job? To complete before I leave on Thursday. Then HR lady quit this Monday so guess who gets even MORE work, now I'm up to 3 jobs and no raise.

    JFC. Just want to be married and be in Jamaica. And your wedding is so much larger than mine so I can't even imagine what that would be like.

    @lolo883 programs can be done at staples. They did mine in 30 minutes. If you have a word document just go over there and let them take care of it.

    Favors , not needed. Skip them. What was your favor going to be?

    Veil, are you making it or something- is it not completed. Maybe worry about that and don't worry about the other things.

    You don't need a guest book. 

    Deep breaths, everything will work out!

    Send me your program stuff.

    Like all of it. Size, words, and whatever design elements you want on it, or if they're in another file, send that to me. I'll put it together and you can proof it and bring it to kinkos or staples.

    I ain't got shit to do tonight after 6 EST. We can make this MF happen.

  • Thankfully the final numbers are due tomorrow but JFC people you RSVPed 2 MONTHS AGO. We have been talking about this since MAY. I'm pretty sure your exchange student friend from Sweden who you haven't seen in 8 years didn't just decide THIS MORNING to fly to Ohio. And guess what, I'm getting married exactly ONE TIME in my whole life, you'd think that would trump 8 years. :( But it doesn't. 

    A friend asked me yesterday if my mom was just SO EXCITED and bugging the bajeebers out of me... nope, haven't talked to her in a week, and that was only so she could tell me my step-brother isn't coming after all.

  • @beethery the programs are already printed and folded, but I had to go be stupid Pinteresty and put the little Kleenex pocket in them. They just need to be glued. No turning back, I spent way too much time on those fuckers.

    @huskypuppy14 the favors are already bought and the tags stamped and embossed, just need to fill them. Last thing I need is 20lbs of Jelly Bellies to myself.

    My two sisters were huge helps on the favors and the folding. Maybe you can nicely ask your bridesmaids if they'd be interested in saving you?

    @lolo883, I was the same way with the programs.  Seriously, just screw it.  Your sanity is more important at this point.

    I wish I lived nearby.  I'd totally come over with wine and help you scoop those jellybeans ... into my mouth.

    Bwahahahaha he canNOT be trusted around jelly beans. They're his favorite. He will eat them ALL.

    My sisters live 90 miles away. My two bridesmaids who live locally have little kids and no time to help. FI's sister is out of state. My mom is MIA. And I'm kind of too Type-A to let anyone help with the crafty stuff because I want it to look JUST SO and it'll only look that way if I do it. :-/

    I need someone to pour wine in my face while I handle the sticky runner with one hand and stitch my veil with the other. And hold ice on my ankle.  And holy shit, do all my laundry so I can pack for my fucking honeymoon. (FI shrinks all my clothes.) And clean out the fridge. And find someone to watch my dog on Saturday night because I totally forgot about that. And keep me from not getting fired today.
