75 Days-The Wedding Nazi

28 Mar

We’re getting married in the courtyard of a stunning mansion and having our reception in the ballroom. One of the MAIN reasons I chose this venue was because of picture opportunities.

Aside from actually being able to marry Jeremy, the 2nd most important part of the day for me is the pictures. The lobby of the main mansion is the PERFECT spot for a First Look.

Remember how our lovely venue let us know there would be another wedding on the same day and at the same time as ours?

Well… Apparently that means we are NOT ALLOWED inside the mansion for any pictures. What?

Calmly I suggested letting the other bride take pictures out in the courtyard while we took pictures inside for 15 minutes so we could both take advantage of all the lovely areas on the venue’s grounds. What response did I receive?

*Plastered fake smile* “Well, we wouldn’t want our other bride interrupting your day in any way, and we would expect the same courtesy from you.”

“I completely understand, the last thing I would want would be to ruin her day, I simply would like to schedule a time around 8:30am to take a few shots indoors, as this was one of my main reasons for choosing the mansion.”

“Right, right, of course.” *dramatic pause with fake smile* “As I said, we wouldn’t want your day interrupted and we expect the same of you. Everyone would be setting up at that time and we wouldn’t want you in the way. I can certainly talk to the other bride’s coordinator and see.”

30 minutes later

“I’ve spoken to the other coordinator and she doesn’t know her bride’s schedule so you can take pictures outdoors from 8:30-9:30am and if just maybe there is a small moment of time where there isn’t traffic indoors and I can’t see the whites of the other bride’s eyes, I’ll snag you so you can go inside for one minute to take a picture and run out. Okay?” *fake smile* “I think this is a wonderful compromise.”

WHAT? WHAT? Did you hear what you just said, woman? At this point I’m so disappointed and sad that I’m not going to argue with her. I may have almost cried.

I’m not picky about a lot of wedding details, but pictures are a HUGE deal for me. We’ll see how this goes, cross your fingers! I’ll keep you updated.

Despite this disappointment, the weekend was quite fun: Jeremy and I had great time with my family, planned our wedding shower with some wonderful women, registered for more kitchen essentials at Macy’s, did a little shopping and Jeremy bought me a yellow purse! Gasp

For those of you who know me at all, I HATE yellow. It’s pretty on flowers, babies, and other people, but NOT on me. When yellow gets anywhere near my face some crazy metamorphosis happens and I immediately turn into one of the following:

Needless to say, this is not the most attractive look for anyone.

Sadly, Jeremy loves yellow. So, as a compromise he has attempted to squeeze yellow items into my wardrobe and now my accessories. Amazingly, I LOVE the purse and it’s no where near my face, so all is well! 🙂

Plus, it’s from Fossil and we LOVE fossil. We also got our groomsmen gifts there, but I won’t go into too much detail in case any of them happen upon the blog. 

Have a great day and watch out for the wedding Nazis!!!
