4 days to go and today was a roller coaster!

Oh, wow, did today go all over the place!

Woke up to an email from the venue asking if we still wanted to do a ceremony rehearsal. And giving times.
Wrote a calm email explaining that.
Venue replied with, essentially, an oops.

Then, opened up a package. A friend of mine who is getting married next month, took the time to paint us a welcome sign. ...I nearly cried.
Also, FH has 'regulars' at his job - one sent him home with a cake and one sent him home with a $50 bb&b card.

Then, while I go to work, FH goes to pick up his suit. Men's Wearhouse first tries to give him his sister's suit (she's a groomswoman). Then talks about how he chose the $400 option, instead of the free because we've got so many in our group option that he signed up for!!
Thankfully, they fixed it, but OOOPH.

THEN, when I get to work... my coworkers got me a cake, as well!! (We have so much cake, now.)
I felt so loved!

There were other minor fires: trying to work out a timeline, and the venue forgot we weren't doing a first look, wanted to put the ceremony at 530, instead of closer to 5, as it says on the invitations... trying to get my father and FH to stop digressing into baseball history talk and just help pick names for our tables...

So much to do, so little time!!4 days to go and today was a roller coaster! 1

    It sounds like a roller coaster of a week alright!

    That was so sweet of your FH's regular and coworkers. I'd imagine you're really starting to feel the love this week from everyone Smiley smile

    Oh wow!! What a roller coaster indeed!! Thankfully, even though there seems to be some disconnect with your venue, they are fixing it. That's got to be a relief!

    Congratulations, and have a wonderful day!! Can't wait to see your BAM!

    Girl, yes that is a lot going on in one day! I hope you're making some time for yourself to perhaps go to a yoga class or something to help you relax and be calm. Congratulations to you and your FH, such an exciting time for you both. Oh and please take time to enjoy all the cake you're given. Smiley smile
