Who'd a thunk?

You expect problems during the wedding planning process. Of course, things are going to come up, people are going to argue, and the day won't go completely according to plan. However, when I used to imagine planning my wedding, I never envisioned any of the following...

- getting grief, not from either mom, but from NavyGuy, over the seating chart.

- having to worry about whether my matron of honor will go into labor during our vows.

- being told one month before that there would be a runway show going on adjacent to our ceremony and that large trade show booths would be set up in view of all of our ceremony photographs, forcing us to relocate the ceremony to a new space in the building.

- that a flu virus would threaten guest attendance for an event in May

- seeing my grandfather, who is walking me down the aisle, gleefully show off his missing front tooth, which popped out less than two weeks beforehand, after he bit into a particularly tough dessert bar

- announcing to NavyGuy at the T-minus 10 day mark, "Is this DAMN THING OVER YET?!?!?"

Grandpa lost a TOOTH??? can he get a replacement before next week, or does he need to smile with mouth closed all day?

perhaps between TWP and I, we can whiddle (sp?) him a new one and have it ready to go....

You never know what we can do with a small piece of wood, some craft paint, and a paperclip.....

Hmm...perhaps modeling clay? A chewed chicklet?

I vote for closed mouth smile all day...and at least he didn't chip it DURING the wedding!


P.S. HG: email me when you get a chance. We should figure out the emergency kit and food. : )

The seating chart is such a pain in the ass! I think we rearranged where people were sitting 40 different times and each time we had one odd person out where we had no clue where to seat him. Good luck!
