I came up with the verbiage for the advice cards. I printed them onto card stock the bride has provided me, used the cutting board at work to cut much straighter edges than if I had done them freehand. I also printed the place cards and tied a red ribbon around them. I provided the bride with them last weekend and she was very happy with them. I’m so pleased.
The poor thing has been a bit stressed out the last time I saw her and could have really used the help and support of her family. I believe the groom has been excellent and very helpful. It’s great to see a groom very much involved in the process and provides his opinion when requested. When I see her tonight, I do hope things have calmed down. I have sent her a couple of emails with no reply but they aren’t life altering. I could get my answers this evening. My goal is for her to be a calm, happy bride tomorrow.
I will also be MC-ing tomorrow’s event so I will need to make sure I pronounce everyone’s names correctly. And, hmm, what to wear???
The reunion in Carlsbad is almost two weeks away. I have updated the list of “Things We Need” with items that will be supplied by family members. I spent quite a bit of time on a decorative piece that will be placed near the parking lot. I received quite a bit of decorative items from my purchases from eBay. Among other things I need to do, I have to book my hotel room and define my travel plans.
The Company Party on the 16th, the day after I drive back from Southern California, is going well. It will be pretty simple. The caterer is fantastic and I should devote more time on details starting next week. I have one of two servers booked and will nail down another server soon.
I am looking forward to continuing networking at industry events, take advantage of being a NEW Manager for Wellness International and promote the heck out of it and my Notary Public services, and just making progress and moving forward.
