x*Can the groom help you? Have him tell you who on the list can be cut or make him pressure his mother to cut some from the list. Maybe he can get you
chris426606/20/17 03:34 AM
x*Thankfully he has finally taken over for his mom. He saw how upset my daughter was getting & is making an effort to lower the count. Fingers crossed
littlewop06/20/17 07:37 PM
x*Thank goodness. Hopefully, he will help and things will start to run smoothly. NT
chris426606/21/17 04:24 PM

tweeter06/19/17 05:46 AM

wyndycty06/19/17 04:59 AM
x*2 weddings in 1 year??? You are super woman! All of their relatives live in the same small town, so not a single out of towner. They are used to
littlewop06/19/17 10:12 AM
x*Sounds like the Groom needs to step in an get that list narrowed down. Or tell them that it will end up at the City Park where....
wyndycty06/19/17 03:00 PM
x*I wish I could. We are at the point of no return. Too much spent in deposits and such. That's why we did the guest list before the venue & menu
littlewop06/19/17 03:39 PM
x*Hmmm. See if the venue has any suggestions for overflow .... like smaller tables that can fit more tables in the room or
wyndycty06/19/17 04:09 PM

x*I was Maid of Honor once., It was time consuming and expensive. ... All the paying for deposits, the dress, the decorations and gifts added up. NT
Rio06/19/17 08:09 AM
x*You are not being a super bitch. Wedding planners have hard jobs and for you as mom of the bride, it's doubly hard because of the relationship.
deVinePoet06/19/17 01:15 AM
x*Thanks, I'm trying! I'm sure it will all work out, just needed to vent a little. Trying to keep the issues from negatively impacting the couple so

chris426606/09/17 03:41 PM

JAF06/04/17 08:55 PM
x*We've had several dumpsters last year. My parents had this house for 45 years and last year we started emptying the attic, basement and garage
chris426606/05/17 03:52 PM

wyndycty06/04/17 07:22 PM
x*We got so many new things because we didn't bring out furniture. we decorated much of our house by going to tag sales. NOW we are downsizing!
VelvetWind06/04/17 07:43 PM

Matzak06/04/17 07:47 PM
x*I agree... I have given tons away to charities, my family and sold on ebay.. Love decluttering! NT
VelvetWind06/04/17 07:49 PM
x*I may give ebay a try with what I still have. great idea! thanks (that could free up some space for a tag sale or two! lol NT
Matzak06/04/17 08:04 PM
x*Hahaha.. I use that as my excuse NT
VelvetWind06/04/17 08:08 PM

Matzak06/05/17 06:23 AM

x*Awwww :( yes for sure a keeper.. hugs to you NT
VelvetWind06/04/17 09:14 PM

ne14cookies06/04/17 12:41 PM
x*Or... Use lots of packing paper and don't organize or label anything. Then it's like Christmas when you unwrap at the new place :-)

ne14cookies06/04/17 06:07 PM
