Hi all! Here's a mini BAM for you! I'm currently sitting on the beach in sunny St. Thomas with my new husband enjoying our honeymoon. Our wedding was Saturday, and I can't believe it came and passed so quickly! A few things went wrong: Friday I was at my florist with my girls making our arrangements and my dad sent me a pic of the outside ceremony spot (he was there golfing with buddies) and there was no arch! Wtf moment. I freaked out because I paid hood money for arch decor. I called my venue lady and left a msg. Her new assistant called me back after I left the florist and just decided to scratch the arch decor since I hadn't heard back in time. He said due to a big storm a few weeks prior, the arch had to be removed and that he spoke with FH about it. He said, "I'm assuming FH didn't relay the message?".

    I was boiling mad and asked FH, and he got pissed, they never called, emailed, texted or pigeon messaged him. Nothing. We think the new guy slipped up and tried to get away with it. They said the arch was never part of their package, just an extra freebie so we could rent one for $100. Nope. No way. The second thing; Friday setting up the venue we noticed the right side of the room was hot, like the air wasn't on or it was blowing but not a/c. The venue staff assured us that it would be working perfectly the day of and that it just hadn't had enough time to get going yet that day. The day of when I walked in with my new groom I could tell the right side was the same. No a/c. Add in about 80 ppl, the bar with a line, photo booth and buffet on that side it was hotter inside than outside. My guests on that side were literally sweating so much they were clearly uncomfortable. I made the staff put the blinds down, make sure everyone had fan programs and to bring in floor fans immediately. I said this needs fixed now! They claimed the a/c broke this afternoon on that side and they are working to get someone out there to fix it.

    After dinner that side of the room minus like 8 people left. I don't blame them, but god I am still pissed! The bartender was overheard saying they knew it was broken and un-fixable Friday. Wtf! Tell me! I would have been damn sure to buy about 30 floor fans to make sure everyone was comfortable! Besides the fact I'm going to send a nasty email to the venue, I'll be leaving a bad review. Half my guests left because of the heat problem! Not ok! My greeters arrived super late and never got to pass anything out! They barely made the ceremony! Thank goodness for DH's GM. Other than that the night was beautiful. I had a few drinks to get me out of my pissed off mood and we got to dancing. It was hot, my second dress came in so much handy! I changed into it much sooner than anticipated bc the heat, but everyone loved both dresses. DH was soooo handsome! I'm on mobile so I'll only be able to upload one pic at a time.

    Your dress is beautiful! That's nuts about the ac and the arch, but that's great that you didn't let it ruin the day!
