Wedding volunteer needed:

Ok, i woke up the other morning and realised that i needed someone to stand by wedding gifts who will tape card *to* gift if card comes with, or to write otherwise identifying info upon gift like who it's from. I'm so worried that if not, that info will disappear during transportation from Roanoke, back up to our place in MD. I need it for the thankyou notes. Any volunteers from friends amongst the invitees? Laura, you can't do it. you'll be busy enough keeping me from biting heads off from sheer nerves.

Also: I just realised that i'm getting married on Mother's Day Weekend. [smack forehead] Not just that, but apparently VA Tech is *graduating*. a full bloody week before everybody else! I moved my wedding ahead precisely because of this! [wail!]. So, Hotels might be a problem. We are looking into this. Until then, here is a list of hotels with phone numbers and other info.

Incidentally, I'm quite flattered that you've gone to all this trouble to get married the day before my birthday. I turn 45 on Sunday, and I'm a mother and I was born on Mother's Day. And my youngest turns 18 on Monday and he was born on Mother's Day. Consider it a good omen and carry on. *hug*

Take a deep breath... :)
I'll try my best to keep you calm and relaxed. I'm not quite sure HOW - perhaps a giant vat of chamomile tea on an IV... ;) You just let me know what you need, and I'll try my darnest to make it happen provided it a) isn't illegal and b) doesn't bankrupt me. *grin*

As for the Courtyard Marriott, the rate on the website is around $160/night. However, if you call the front desk (not the Marriott 800 number, but the local hotel) you get a far lower rate. I'll be paying around $89/night. In my mind, paying a little extra for a business class hotel is a good idea, especially if you want to avoid screaming children. :) Oh, and Mariott hotels are generally three star, so there's moderately nice amenities and very, very nice beds.
