I’m overwhelmed, to say the least. It seems we might not have any where near the number of tables and chairs we need for the reception–our guests might not have a place to sit when they eat or need a break from dancing. Granted, the wedding reception is in my parents backyard, and my dad thought there were more tables and chairs at his disposal than there are, but now I’m left to try and figure out what the hell we’re going to do. I know that my dad is probably stressing out over this as well, but I’m so stressed out that last night I went on strike from any and all wedding planning. Yep, I sure did. Oh, I’m still in the process of creating the sheet music roses to go with the real roses we’re getting (at least, I think we’re still getting), and I’m still going to print all the programs that I spent months creating on the computer, but as far as the planning goes–I’m on strike.
I need help. I am only one person, I have never planned a wedding, and it’s not easy. Even though we’re going the creative, DIY mostly, with help of family and friends, backyard barbecue type thing there are still things that need to be planned out, done ahead of time, and I’ve been doing the bulk of it myself with the help of my Matron of Honor. I can do no more. I’m stuck. Stressed. Overwhelmed. Frustrated. Disappointed. And we’ve only got 31 days to go. WTH?!?!
Not only do we need tables and chairs for the wedding that is out-of-town at my parents place, but we also need tables and chairs for our rehearsal dinner that is at our home. Granted we’ve only got about 35-40 people coming to the rehearsal dinner, and there are 80-120 people coming to the wedding, I have no idea anymore of what the hell to do. I’ve asked for help on FB, I’ve called around and priced renting tables and chairs (runs around $150-200 for the wedding reception, and about $80 for the rehearsal dinner), and David asked his BIL if he knew anyone we might be able to borrow tables and chairs from for the rehearsal dinner but that doesn’t really help with the wedding.
I’m (almost) ready to elope and say the hell with a wedding!!!!!!!!!!
