That is too funny- I had the same thing happen last week! They want me to come up with and facilitate a new literacy program here (for teens) and I had to remind everyone that I'll be gone for over a month- so it's not happening until May at the earliest!

That is beautiful! Wow, that's really amazing that your Mom made that from her dress- that must be so special to you!

The room you book and then they send you an email to fill out an authorization form, and you must send it back 48 hours latest, if not the money doesn't get taken off the card and you have no reservations.
ShE NEVER SENT THE FORM BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!! then I get a call saying her fake husband can't go, but maybe she should take her mom, that was yesterday... I told her game over!!! then today she calls and says she'll just come alone. I told her with what reservations!!!!
This has become way to much for me,especially a week before my wedding. If I get one more call (even tho FI doesn't want me to answer her calls anymore) I'll tell her she is no longer invited (I really will too, enough is enough.. I've been way to darn nice!!)
*sigh* sorry for my vent
Tracy, so sorry you have to go through this added stress with your GF, if it makes you feel any better I'm having lots of problems, my mom wants to cancel her trip now...3 weeks before the wedding. This has put a HUGE stress on me and has me pretty down and emotional. I don't want to force anyone to do anything they aren't comfortable with, but I do want my Mom at my own wedding...considering I don't have a huge family attendance coming anyway, at least we have lots of our mutual friends coming, they should be able to fill up my empty lacking family side.
Aw, Suzy, I am so sorry to hear this. I hope your Mom changes her mind- I understand why you're feeling emotional about this. Either way, your wedding is going to be beautiful. Hang in there!
i have my fingers, toes, eyes, everything crossed for thursday. that should be the day we find out whether or not FI's daughter can come with us. nothing like cutting it close, huh? it'll give us just enough time to work with her teacher to get her assignments and all that organized. plus i'll have to tear through all her clothes to make sure she has what she needs! i hate all this uncertainty!!
I was wondering about that. I'll keep everything crossed for you too. I really hope it goes your way- for you and your FI and especially for that poor little girl. I really hope she gets the chance to be there with her Dad and you.

On a "funny" note, FI and I received an email from one of our groomsmen this morning. He had tried on all the clothes we bought for the guys to wear (special ordered linen pants, basic cotton button down from Old Navy and flip flops from American Eagle) and he's decided that the only part that he likes and that fit well are the shoes!! He's already tried having the pants altered a little and still isn't happy with them, the shirt is too small in part and too large in part and he just doesn't think he looks good enough for a wedding!! Okay I understand that he doesn't want to look like a slob, but if you are the kind of person who has troubles with the fit of clothing, or is picky about your clothes - tell the person who is trying to be nice and buy you all your clothes ie. ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Granted that FI left it until the last minute a little to figure this stuff out for the guys but I don't even know what to say about someone being that concerned about what they're wearing (and a guy no less!!). So when I talked to FI about it quickly, I just said that I wanted nothing to do with making this work, that he needed to be the one to find time in the next day or two and figure it out with them. I'm TOTALLY not dealing with this one! AGGH!
Too funny- FI's birthday is a week from Saturday, and then my Mom's is May 7th (I'll miss it, unfortunately, I'll still be in Cuba). They actually offered me May 7th as a wedding day, but we turned it down for that reason.
Men!! I can't believe he's that anal about his shirt! I think you did the right thing handing that one over to your FI- you probably have enough stuff to finish up right now without having to be this guy's style consultant too!
