AHR Vent

Recommended Posts

I just wish it was over! Before our wedding I totally just didn't do anything for the AHR because I was so stressed about the wedding itself. So now the wedding is over and the AHR is March 8th and I have so much to do!! I feel like all this stress should be gone now that the wedding is over but I guess it just doesn't end until the AHR is over.. I had such a breakdown the other night that I begged my husband to cancel the AHR because I'm just not getting any help at all from my MOH.

I am so ready for all this planning stuff to be over! Sorry if none of this makes since.. I'm feeling a bit crazy right now.. smile41.gif

Girl, I am still stressing about the upcoming DW but I KNOW how you are feeling. My main concern is $$$ for the AHR!!! But I haven't done one single thing for it yet either -- and don't plan to until we get back.

 

How elaborate are you making it? I'm trying to keep our AHR as simple as possible. Even planning on making our own cupcake tower -- but I have a feeling I will run out of time. lol. The BM who was supposed to do it is no longer a part of the wedding ... and I COMPLETELY relate about getting no help from your MOH. My sister is the ONLY BM helping with ANYTHING (and she lives 2+ hours away).

I felt the same way when I came home from our DW. But don't worry, if you have all the big stuff done, everything else will fall into place or no one will miss it if it doesn't get done.

My biggest thing I have to figure out is my centerpieces and what I am going to do with the tables. I have to find some sort of table runner or something.. I have the flowers ordered and I have the "vases" but I need to decorate the "vases" a little bit.

The reason I am putting vases in quotes is because mine isn't.. well.. something a normal person would use for vases. LOL...

But yes we are trying to make this AHR very simple but I feel like more and more keeps adding on!

Isn't it amazing how people that are suppossed to be the ones helping you out and making things less stressful think that they don't need to do anything to help? Or "have other things going on" when you need their help!?

AMEN sister! All I hear when I talk to one of my BM's is "I am ssoo busy" and never an offere to help or anything. Do some people really not know that being a BM is more than just an honor ... that it means helping out? Obviously too many don't think that way. aarrgghh!!!

But, it will get done, I promise you. And it's true -- what's not done no one will know about but you...

Hah. Yes I think people think that being a BM just means that they show up on the wedding day and get to party and that's it!

At this point, with 11 days to go, I would try to come up with a tablescape that is as simple as possible. I'm the kind of person who gets bogged down into minute details and I have to snap myself out of it. I don't know where you are having your reception or what you have in mind for vases....but if you are anything like me, you will go bonkers if you spend too much time worrying about center pieces. I know I calm down when I have a list of tasks that I can cross off. I broke into tears at my AHR because seating got screwed up. I gain my composure after having a margarita. lol. Just know as long as the people you love are there, everything will be fine. Sounds corny but it's true.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
