One Last ‘Mother of the Bride’ Blooper


I do believe I promised you one last ‘Mother of the Bride’ blooper‚Ķ ūüôā

But before I begin, please learn from my ‘close to disaster experience’. ¬†I booked my two younger daughters’ wedding hair appointments about 10 weeks before the wedding at my regular salon along, with mine. ¬†They did all our hair last year for daughter, Maggie’s wedding. ¬†They did a great job. I won’t mention the salon this year, as my experience wasn’t as happy.

What happened? ¬†Well, I called two weeks before the wedding to confirm all appointments, (bride, Kathleen, and Matron-of-Honor, Maggie, went to ‘The Strand’ in Glastonbury and had wonderful results). ¬†Guess what? ¬†Our three appointments had been moved from 10:00 AM, to 2:00 PM. ¬†The wedding was at 4:30. ¬†Not nearly enough time to have our hair done, dress, and get to the hotel for pre-wedding photos. ¬†Was this the first time I checked on the appointments? ¬†No. ¬†I also called 4 weeks prior to the event. ¬†At that time, our appointments were STILL at 10:00 AM. ¬†I just couldn’t understand how this could happen!!! ¬†I made my panic known, and was accommodated, kind of‚Ķ they double booked Julia and me. ¬†It all worked out, but I as not happy.

When we arrived at the salon, I do believe I discovered the reason our appointment was moved. ¬†There was another wedding party there. ¬†They had a party of 6-8, and I guess their big group trumped our smaller one. ¬†I was not happy and discussed the situation with one of the owners. ¬†She of course, denied it, stating they had booked “‚ĶA LONG time ago”. ¬†Not before I had, I’m sure‚Ķ All I know for certain, is my end of the situation‚Ķwhen I booked it, and the two confirmation calls I made. ¬†Let’s just say, I probably will be booking my next cut with “The Strand.” ¬†The take away for you, dear readers, keep checking-in with your vendors. ¬†And maybe tip better‚Ķcould THAT be the reason I was bumped? ¬†Am I not the best tipper?? ¬†ūüôā

I hate to say it, but I have hit my word count for today, but I PROMISE next time to tell you about my final “Mother of the Bride” blooper…
