1) My best friend's wedding was Saturday. I was the matron of honor. I woke up Saturday morning w/ food poisoning or a stomach bug. We made an emergency phone call to DH's cousin who is a Dr. and got me a rx for some anti-nausea meds. Bless his heart, DH walked several blocks to the pharmacy to pick up my meds. He was a total trooper and I wouldn't have made it without him this weekend. I ended up missing my hair/makeup appointment so the MOB did her best to fix my hair. It didn't turn out too bad actually but I didn't look as polished as the other girls. After a second dose of Zofran, I made it through the whole wedding/pics/reception but dude, I felt like crap. Totally not the weekend I had planned.
2) There is a paper mill in Savannah across the river. At 3 am, the wind shifted and our room filled with the lovely sulfur aroma of the paper manufacturing process. Given #1, you'll see why this was a BIG issue for me. I slept w/ my face buried in the sheets and I'm kinda surprised I didn't smother myself.
3) The guys at the front desk of the hotel were TOTAL jack*sses. Seriously, worst customer service ever. They were even rude to the bride and her family and the whole damn reception was held at this hotel. I mean, come on people.
4) At checkout this morning, our bill was fine. When we got home, we checked our statement and and we were overcharged $66. Given the #, I'm thinking they charged the standard room rate instead of the block rate for the wedding. I'm still not sure how they got it right on the receipt but overcharged our account. I'm pissed b/c I pleaded w/ DH to use the credit card but he didn't think it was that big of a deal and used our debit card instead. Now we have to argue with the hotel over it. Obviously they're wrong and we have a receipt to prove it, but that's still money directly out of our pocket for the time being. We called them and of course, the guy at the front desk put us on hold for 10 minutes at a time and then was a total snot.
All of that said - my friend's wedding was BEAUTIFUL. She looked absolutely gorgeous and was amazing calm and composed the whole time. I'm thrilled I was able to be there for her despite the complications - I seriously would have heart broken if I'd missed it. I think all the pics DH took came out blurry (ugh) but I'll try and upload a few to share w/ you guys.
