- Wedding: June 2013
Okay let me start this off with a few things. I have a flu bug and feel miserable and it’s probably making me more emotional than I would be normally. This is my first real bridal breakdown. I want to stomp my feet on the floor and yell at somebody but I don’t know who.
So our date first became a problem when I told my aunt when it was and she said her kids are still in school. I was bummed but there is family drama there due to an ailing grandparent and siblings who don’t agree on his care so perhaps that’s an excuse. Also it could be her way of ducking out becaus of travel expense which is fine. I thought about changing the date but my parents and FI and were like this is your wedding and this is your date you can’t go around changing it for everyone. So I let that go.
This morning my FBIL’s gf asked if we set the date. I cocked my eyebrow up because I was fairly certain we had told FBIL the date and that all immediate family members knew. So I told her the date and she was like oh nooooooo I can’t come I have a huge bike trip starting the next day across the country. I’m just so bummed she can be there. I yelled at FI for not communicating with his bro but he said he told him and that things happen and not everyone will be able to make it. Ugh I don’t know if I just feel like a jerk for not making sure she knew the date because I’m sick or I truly am a jerk. We were planning on sending out STDs in November just to give folks a little extra time to plan even though etiquette says 4 months for STDs. Ugh I just feel so grumpy and upset. Sorry y’all just needed to vent before I get anymore pissy with the FI.
