Today has been extremely counterproductive. Such a disappointment. My mom and I traveled all the way to Camden to get some wedding stuff done. I really needed to have a church and/or reception site by the end of the day. Didn’t happen. But at least I chose a color. And a caterer… IF we can even have the wedding there.
We spent most of the day riding there and back, and riding around Camden/Lugoff looking at wedding sites. With the wedding being less than four weeks away, I needed to have a venue weeks ago. The problem with the Camden/Lugoff area is that there are no nice/reasonable venues with capacities over 150… and most don’t even reach that.
Everything we consider seems to dead-end. Nothing is working out. Nothing. I’m so frustrated. I fought back tears and bit my tongue all day long, and now that I’m home and its okay to cry, I can’t. Ugh.
On a slightly more positive note, I think I decided on the bridesmaids’ dress color… and I’ve narrowed it down to two dresses (I think). I know I should involve the girls in the decision, but we’re all scattered so much and we have very little time to get this done. Maybe I’ll email them pics of the two dresses and they can give me some feedback. Regardless… both dresses can easily be worn again, so thats definitely a plus.
Another very positive note… the caterer. IF the wedding can be held in Camden, I’ll get an AMAZING deal on the catering and cake. Thank God for nice, helpful people.
On my way home I called Caleb really upset. I shouldn’t have because he just worries. Now is when I need him to be strong for me. When my problems worry him too it just makes me worry that much more.
It’s nice to have a friend to talk to about all this junk… someone who won’t worry about it. Someone who is rather indifferent to all the little details that bug me. They just let me vent and get it out, then give some advice and let it go. It helps.
I do know one thing. I cannot wait until July 18th (< my dad's 57th bday) when Caleb and I are chillaxin' on the beach. Oh Jesus please let that day come soon! Although it will be kinda sad getting married the day before my dad's bday. However, my dad did say he would love to have the wedding on his bday… but I'm not sure why.
Alright… I need to get to bed. It's late and I have to sub for 5th graders tomorrow.
