It was all going so well...
SO... 10 days to go and the wedding is planned to military precision. Lists a-plenty and we actually have a relaxing few days ahead. Until ... why oh why oh why do all these little niggles happen now?! I know these are small-fry compared to some of the threads on here but my OH is getting narked with my ranting so I need to let off steam to you lovely ladies.
Rant No 1 (sounds like a Spandau Ballet song) - so when we sent the STDs and invites to one of OH's friends who lives in Holland, we addressed them to 'John'. When the RSVP came back we were a tad surprised to find that he'd invited his girlfriend and already booked their flights and hotels! I was furious but we managed to squeeze her in. Begrudgingly. We now get an email from him saying she has broken her leg and is in a wheelchair and may not be able to come - and won't be able to confirm til the week before! So a guest we haven't invited is causing us grief and we now may need to move other guests around - and the table plan is sealed. Grrr. If she was an 'invited' guest I'd be OK about it but...
Rant No 2 - this Dutch guest has now told us he has not bought us a present from our gift list as he wanted to give us a surprise. Er.. we don't want surprises, we have asked for specific things (I don't think I'd be so miffed about this if it wasn't for the non-invited girlfriend situation). I know I sound like an ungrateful brat about this so please tell me off. However, if it is anything windmill-related I shall be forced to ebay it.
Rant No 3 - as a wedding present for OH I got my nipple pierced (I've had them both done before with no problems and he has wanted me to get one done again for yonks). However, it has got infected, I've had to take it out and am on 2 lots of antibiotics. I can actually see the funny side of this now (but it hurts like buggery!)
Rant No 4 - a very good friend has not RSVP'd STILL with 10 days to go. He has spilt up with his boyfriend after 13 years so I know he has a lot on, but I need to confirm numbers this Saturday!
Rant No 5 - my sister (MOH) is inviting random friends to the service. There is no room! I don't want strangers seeing me weep!
Rant No 6 - why won't the choir and band answer emails!
Rant No 7 - why is Game of Thrones starting the week before my wedding?!
I think that's it for now. These are minor issues, I know, but I'm the most organised person in the world and it drives me nuts when other people aren't.
Please tell me I'm being an idiot and slap me to pull me to my senses.
Thank you and goodbye.
