No, I don’t have indigestion–although I did for a good few days there! First, thanks all of you for your helpful and supportive comments after the wedding-transfer debacle! You had some great suggestions. The good news is, that I don’t have to use any of them because we’re staying put–but not after a roller-coaster ride of epic proportions. Yeah, yeah, I know children are starving in Africa, but when it comes to weddings the universe is pretty small. Was that insensitive? I can be a little insensitive at times.
So my mom and I go to the new place on Thursday at noon to meet with the new catering managers and see the new space. My heart sank when I walked in. Keep in mind, in the spring, summer and fall the place is very desirable because it’s a gorgeous Japanese garden with extraordinary outdoor facilities. But in April–it looks like a freekin’ highschool cafeteria–they even had the local student’s artwork hanging on the gaping white walls. There was nothing that the new event manager could tell me that would convince me that I could give that room the cozy feel of the original location I was counting on.
But I kept an open mind. Until, about a half hour or more into our meeting the other manager came out of the office and stopped us in our tracks–there was an event already scheduled there that day!!!
I will opt to spare you the expletive stream of thoughts that passed through my mind and out my lips at that moment. But needless to say, there was a bit of annoyance. After all of that nonsense, we were back to square one!
Fine by me. I booked my wedding at the original place for a reason! I was going for less of a wedding feel and more of a dinner party vibe. All’s well that ends well–we’re on for next Sunday at 3 pm.
Now we’re busy mixing up the tunes on the IPOD…when it’s all over, remind me to tell you about my "entrance theme".
