The wedding is only two months away, but I’m totally unworried about it. Really. We’ve got:
- A venue
- A photographer
- A plan for food
- A plan for desserts
- A DJ
- An officiant
- A dress + hat for me
- Plans in place for the horses to be there
As far as I’m concerned, we’re good to go. Unfortunately, not everyone involved seems to feel that way. I’m talking, of course, about Johnny’s mom and my mom. I’ve mentioned before that his mom has been very helpful in the planning process and has truly helped with a lot of things. I’ve appreciated having her assistance, but now that we’re getting down to the wire, she’s getting worried.
A couple of weeks ago, she sent us this long, crazy email filled with long, crazy things that mostly boiled down to “You aren’t prepared, why did we think this was a good idea to do it ourselves, WE SHOULD CALL THIS WEDDING PLANNING COMPANY IN TULSA THAT SPECIALIZES IN CRISIS MODE EVENTS!”
Let me be clear: we are not doing this ourselves. More power to those of you out there who can arrange your flowers yourselves and make adorable party favors and paint props for a photo booth and have your wedding for like, $500. I admire and respect you. I, however, don’t find that appealing at all. (Well, the $500 part is appealing, I guess.) Johnny doesn’t either, so we’ve simply sought out vendors that will do all of those types of things for you. And we feel confident in their ability to do them!
Any advice on reassuring our mothers that we actually do have everything under control? You know, without sounding like a bitch?
