@perianjay you can definitely join the bday biatch train lol The more the merrier! And same here, Der keeps me grounded. He's the little angel on my shoulder who whispers that I should be nicer lol.

And "Harriet"? That's so not even close. This wasn't at Starbucks but someone once called me Bridgette.

@Wafflesmom Harriet is so not close. Usually I get weird versions of my name.. like "PERRY ANNE" or "PERINA" lol.

Bridgette though.. that's actually NOTHING close to your name hahahah. Oh Starbucks......

@yycbride2016 all your DIY projects look amazing!!! Love the little message in a bottle! :)

 

As for your friend's fiance, that is so incredibly rude and then to post it on social media is unbelievable. It was obviously a small mistake that wasn't done intentionally but she has to make a huge deal about it and then adds in the jab about the price as well. I hope she doesn't attend your wedding - you don't need that negative energy around your special day. 

 

@perianjay @Wafflesmom I love the Starbucks name fails too - it always surprises me and makes me laugh when they spell my very common name "Stephanie" wrong. lol! I know there are many ways to spell my name but I find it funny when they think my way of spelling it is strange. Yesterday I was there ordering a couple of drinks and the barista asked me for my name and said "I want to spell your name right, is it with an i or a y?" .... I say "i" and then she proudly turns the cup around and shows me and it says "Steffani". I smile and giggle and say "don't worry that's close enough" and she's like "no no, did I spell it wrong? I'll fix it on the next cup", I tell her that's not necessary but she insists. So I say "well it's an "ie" at the end and it's with a "ph".....she looks confused, then she looks at the original cup, then back at me more confused. So I spell my name out for her, she writes it and then says "ooohhhhkay noted". As if my way of spelling it is weird. The whole conversation just made me laugh. 

 

One of my MOHs name is Genevieve and we've kept track of all of her Starbucks name fails. They have included "Jenna Eve", "Jen-B" (yes, spelled like that haha!) and our favourite... the oh so common name "Jenani" ;)

@snswedding2016 @Wafflesmom I laughed when that video surfaced online where Starbucks employees were saying they were doing it on purpose "we're f**king with you" I think were the exact words hahaha.

@snswedding2016

Thanks! I'm happy with how the projects have turned out. Not sure there is really much more to do actually! Feel pretty on the ball for being 7 months out! yay!

 

And I kow right?! The price thing really bugged me. Like her wedding is out of town too (1 hour away) and we have to pay for a hotel. So just grow up already! missing one letter is no big deal. I think she is just mad that we are doing a destination wedding probably. So rude and immature. haha

 

 

@perianjay

I love that starbucks video too! So funny!

@yycbride2016 oh that makes me even more mad to know that her wedding is out of town too!! I'm all for have your wedding wherever and however you want, it is your day! I hate though how destination weddings take all the heat when I've had to go to so many weddings just far enough outside of the city that you still need a hotel. I don't mind getting a hotel for a wedding I want to attend, but don't give me attitude about how my wedding costs so much for you, ya know?! I have a wedding at the end of Aug and I broke down the cost by night and Mexico is still way cheaper and that includes food, alcohol and a FLIGHT! It just bugs me when people say those things! grrrr!

 

@perianjay love that video too - so funny! I was at a Starbucks once and an old man told the barista his name was Rumpelstiltskin. The old man seemed to get a real kick of it! haha!

@snswedding2016

Exactly. I mean yeah we could drive home after their wedding (1hr drive) but we want to be able to enjoy ourselves. And really, these two aren't the "beach" type. So they could have just politely declined and all would be good. Part of me wishes I hadn't gone looking for the tweet. I get so frustrated everytime I think about it. Like Everyone is entitled to make a mistake and its my day so she can just not come. I actually hope they don't come to my at home reception now.

@snswedding2016 @yycbride2016 @perianjay I COMPLETELY understand you ladies on the name thing. I actually Facebook stalked a few of my FI family members because he didn't know how to spell their names.

 

My name is spelled and pronounced wrong all the time. My name is Latrice (okay, technically it's La-Trice) but I've gotten everything from Latricia, Patrice and so on. If I type my actual name into most computer systems, I become "La" because it cuts everything off. My name wasn't pronounced right at any of my 3 graduations lol and I wrote it out phonetically. I've gotten used to people spelling it wrong so I wouldn't be upset if someone got it wrong on an invite (hey, at least they invited you!).

I got my wedding bands today!! I got two but I'm pretty sure my fiancĂ© isn't going to let me wear the second one until our one year anniversary unfortunately haha. They just look so pretty altogether! I didn't get the matching bands to my engagement ring because they actually stood up too tall and hid the detail on the profile of my ring. When I saw how dainty these rings were I was sold (and the fact that they were half the price helped).
