    Jas...
    The same thing happened to me, I waited for weeks to get things squared away, and went nuts thinking about it. Then when they did it, they did my reception from 6-9 instead of 7-10 (important for me because I wanted a sunset first dance). It took her several months to change that detail in our contract. The whole time she said ok, but until I had the documentation, I was worried. But after awhile, you just start realizing that you have limited knowledge and control until the week of... and it's pointless to make yourself crazy. If she sees your request first, she will make it happen before confirming someone else, but she just may take a while getting back to you. I would try putting the words ASAP or URGENT in the subject line, with a please, or get you TA to contact her (if you don't have one, there are many TA's on this forum that would be wonderful, included Tammy - the one who made this forum) if it is really scaring you.

      do any of you have pictures of a buffet set up? comments about it?

      i just dread the idea of guests waiting in a line to fill their plates, but i could just be being my regular old paranoid self.....

      I'm the same way, I really wanted a plated dinner, and we wanted to stick with what our packaged allowed us... 30 guests and plated. But FMIL wants all her family, so she is going to pay the plate, champagne, cake, chair, and decor price to have anyone extra on her side come (but not my side, so our wedding guest list is going to be incredibly lopsided) and apparently she has all this money to invite her friends and family, but not help us out with other costs that would benefit the bride and groom equally instead, while shelling over 30K for their daughter's wedding 3 yrs ago (sorry, that is an entirely different rant and now back to the subject). So we most likely will have buffet too. The thing is, I liked the selections for plate, but not so much for buffet. Grrrr! But.. I think because it is Dreams, it will still be lovely your all of us, buffet or plated.

      p.s. And I truly am grateful for any help my FILs give us, even if it doesn't seem that way.

        1 month until my wedding! I feel like I have most of the big stuff squared away, but apparently my subconcious mind doesn't agree. I keep having anxiety dreams. In one I was starting to pack everything, but I couldn't find my wedding dress!

        One thing that I've been discussing with Cecilia is having a rehearsal. How long did it take for any of you past brides? I'm hoping not much more than half an hour. Also, did you actually play your music to practice the timing? It seems like we wouldn't be able to hear it very well with our tiny speakers and the wind (we're renting the sound system for the day of), so I'm pretty worried about how it'll all work out.

          Our Rehearsal was Quick..Maybe ten minutes. Usually the offciant doesn't come for it. It's just a run through with your WC so you can make sure everyone is walking/standing where you want them.
          We didn't use music, we just did a quick run through, I gave her all of my Wedding decorations & favors & etc and that was it :)

                Hi all! I leave in 2 days!!!!!!...and I'm still not ready to go! I wrote my ceremony script but now I'm worrying that the whoever does the ceremony will basically stand there and read it. Is everyone else writing theirs?

                Also, anybody have anything they want me to ask/take pictures of while I'm there?

                There will be no sleep for me tonight!!!!! :)

                      As far as I know, there is no charge. At least I hope not, I don't need any more little surprises!
