Good idea about checking and getting reimbursed for missing items.
Also, I think your story was awesomely honest. It may be too soon for you to hear this, but it made me smile to hear your story because it's just the way things go. It's one thing to always say "It will be perfect and it will work out" but it's good to know what happens in the background to make it all work out. It's a lot of work, and if you know ahead of time what to expect and not to expect (no help from the WC), you can prepare and delegate little things to your close friends, even then expect to be flexible - then everything will be perfect.
If got to do it all over again I would be there in a split-second - and things would still turn out with little mishaps and I would still love everything about it.
I was told I'll get sneek peaks from Adrian on Friday night! - less than 24 hours before our AHR! I'm so grateful and happy we'll have them for the reception!

Thank you all for the sweet comments! To answer a few questions... the wind was crazy.. don't wear your hair down! I had an updo (Sonia did mine and it was beautiful and exactly what I asked for) The wind had even messed up my overly hairsprayed updo. My bridesmaids helped me fix all the loose pieces before the reception started.
I would check your bag that they return to your room right away. We did not get all out items back either. The only thing I actually wanted back was a silver cake server my Mom had engraved for us. They managed to lose that. I spoke with the guest services and they reimbursed us for it so my Mom is able to replace it for us. I was really sad about that getting lost.
You will have have wonderful weddings! Have fun, because it really does go by extremely fast!
