Sorry for sounding so dramatic with the title but at this exact time last week this is pretty much how I felt. See the problem leading up to the week of the wedding everything had gone pretty seamless. I had gotten my venue, photographer, videographer, caterer, DJ etc etc with no difficulties. Everything was going as according to plan as I was packing and trying to lay out every outfit down to the shoes and necklace that would go accordingly to it…….
First I got a text from my DJ to call him.
No worries I thought to myself he was trying to hammer down those last few minute details.
Then he called me. I immediately didn’t like the tone of his voice. He started off by saying how excited he was for the wedding and didn’t want to call me on Valentine’s Day to tell me what he going to tell me…….. Apparently Tyra Banks was in town and this was a huge opportunity for his career and he was going to split time between the wedding and her gig…..on and on. At this point I was pretty much seeing red so I don’t remember all the details. I said something to the effect of we had a contract with him but he assured me that his right hand man would do a great job.
Tell me if I was excited to tell Mark what had gone down.
At this point Mark was so upset he was telling me it wouldn’t matter that we could get someone setting up their iPhone and playing off a playlist for all he cared. I was so horrified. This was the person who was setting the tone for the entire wedding. All of my requirements during the wedding planning was good food, drinks and a DJ to keep the partying going. I was crushed and livid all at the same time. Like why even bother signing a contract am I right????
At the end of the day the right hand man did a fabulous job.
However you haven’t seen me get all crazy 3 days before I’m walking down the aisle.
Naturally Mark was over joyed with the breech of contract also.
So with a lot of reassurance that somebody would show up to play our songs we did end up having a beautiful wedding that nobody would know was almost ruined by Tyra Banks. My only advice to all soon to be brides out there is read the finest little detail print of all your contracts because when it is 3 days before your wedding and you have no options left…….you are literally at the mercy of all your vendors. Which all of my other vendors were AMAZING!!!! I have a running list of everybody that I can recommend to all my local peeps. Please feel free to email me for any recommendations!
Now for more pretty pictures! (These are ones that people have sent me from their phones or I’ve stalked off Facebook).
