I leave on the 10th so there's no way I can whip one up for her in time. I feel really bad because I want her to have one. She's the kind of person who will be pissed if she's left out. And now we have to order 2 extra chairs at the wedding and bows etc. because we weren't planning on her and her boyfriend coming.
The only reason I know about it now is because sunwing cancelled her original flight. We are having so many issues with Sunwing.
Well, if she wants it to be a surprise....be surprised. When she doesn't get an OOT bag-apologize, but explain you didn't know she was coming and it was all arranged ahead of time. I would however take a package of "Thank you" cards with you (we took a box of 10 with us)- that way you can write a quick personalized thank you for showing up and 'surprising' you.(after you've been surprised!) Plus I think she wants to be a bit of a 'star', make sure you tell her what a wonderful and unexpected surprise and you're thrilled she made it. Leave it at that and don't stress yourself out!
Plus don't worry about the extra chair/stuff- the WCs are professionals and will deal with this for you!
