Wedding stress

Weddings are stressful, it seems, for everyone except the couple. They just have to show up and look happy.

The rest of the family on the other hand are stressed and running round in circles trying to make sure it all goes to plan, or if not that, at least goes!

Stresses about changes to who is doing what - due to illness etc; changes in numbers coming; changes in timings of rehearsals etc.

My own issues relate mainly to fish. I am responsible for organising the table centres - a glass bowl with 2 goldfish and some white gravel in it. Oh and some water. Not just any water though, but treated water, and at room temperature. Thus Butcher Boy and I are involved in this project of logistics which is testing my production manager skills.

The gravel was late in being ordered, and should arrive on Wednesday for a Friday wedding - tight, but........

My second issues is just over family dynamics and how people will get on. In this case I'm more worried for Mum who tends to let such things worry her, and this will mean she won't enjoy the day, won;t sleep before hand and won;t eat properly.

Thankfully a week today they'll be on honeymoon in the sun, I'll be back up here, and then only have exams to stress over.

That sounds so cool...
Are they rental or borrowed goldfish or did you buy them (and going to keep them all post wedding?)

I've never heard of goldfish as centre pieces! Original! One of good friends is geting married in a couple of months but I think she's going for roses as a centre piece-I'll pass on the idea of fish to her though!!!
