August 2009 brides

So I posted when I got the total invoice from the WC, I emailed her about some of the prices that I thought were high, and she took a WEEK to get back to me. When she finally returned my call last friday (2 weeks before our date), she told me I had to pay her immediately because it would take extra time for the checks to clear her acct. (But mind you, if I pay w/ a CC there's an extra 3% charge!) We had barely even reviewed our invoice, and she gave us no opportunity to make changes- everything was supposed to be finalized (according to the contracts) 30 days prior to the date!!! I'm still pretty upset about it. After discussing it with FI, we were like, it's her own fault if the checks don't clear in time, we weren't paying an extra 3%!! So then I wasn't sure if we could send personal checks, or if they had to be Cashier's checks, and again I was trying to get a hold of her, and she never got back to me!! Uggh! So finally, yesterday I just said screw it and sent her our checks FedEx (to Hawaii, $40!) And btw still haven't heard from her, though I called her twice yesterday.
I just hope everything is so beautiful, it will make up for all this grief!

I still have to work on programs, menus and placecards, but most of everything else is done. I am still looking for fans, but will probably end up buying the sandalwood ones at Michaels.
I pick up my dress next week and FH is picking his suit up this Friday.
Good Luck to everyone as August starts this weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I at least have all of our wedding stuff packed all is paid for, except our wc i'm paying her cash for all of our stuff when we get there cause if i use cc she has to charge 10%!!!!! We have lots of rental stuff and our cake through her, so 10% is alot!
I am packing all night tonight. I usually pack all night the night before we leave and i'm so exhausted. I want to be all packed tonight.... we'll see how that goes.
Tomorrow i have a few errands to run w/ my daughter like taking our dog to boarding. But Joe gets off at 3 and then i have to go work in the lab for 40 minutes, get my nails done, tan, and run to Macys..... well our macys closes at 6 so i might do that in a different order...
But yay!!! I'm soo soo excited!

I am getting a bit anxious. I have to finish decorating the menus, putting velum on the programs and mail out the luggage tags and brochures.
I want to mail them out on Monday. Wish me luck ladies!!! I had FI in Michael's today. Now that was funny! He helped pick out the ribbon to put on the menus. He looked totally out of his element.
I picked up my dress from alterations yesterday. I prepaid for our transport to and from the airport today. I will pick up our wedding bands this week and take my e-ring to be cleaned and the prongs checked. I have a trial run for makeup and hair this week. My stylist is also a friend so she is coming with us.
Packing, now that is a different story. The stuff we are taking for the oot bags and the wedding ceremony s packed. I haven't a clue as to what I am taking vacation wise. I did order some stuff from VS last week.
Ladies, our dates are right around the corner!
