@KatieBklyn:  I’m tired of EVERYONE asking “OMG. Are you SO excited?” Well, of course I am. I’m not really a gushy bride so I’m tired of everyone else being so gushy lol.

@IUrebekah3RT:  I’m with you there! I’m 10 days out so for some crazy reason everyone expects me to be excited or nervous. Jeez!

I am so with you girls!  My typical answer is now “because it’s what I want”.  I’m dreading the day after the wedding when everyone starts asking “Are you pregnant yet?”!

 

Congratulations on your so near wedding!

@KatieBklyn:  Yes, yes, OMG yes.  My new rule:  If you’re not doing it, you don’t get an opinion.  Not doing the escort cards?  No opinion for you.  Not organizing the timeline for the day of?  No opinion.

Yes, I do. My older sister who is also my maid of honor (and has not planned a wedding before) can be really negative about, well, everything. She seems to want to disagree with/question every decision we’ve made. I am getting really frustrated because we’ve spent so much time and money planning and it makes me feel like she (or whoever else is questioning us) doesn’t think we’ve really thought through what we decided on. We’ve been planning for 18 months now. Do not question me!!

One benefit of being an older bride is knowing it is IMPOSSIBLE to please everybody, so one might as well please oneself. Few, if any of my/our decisions have been questioned. If they ask why I simply smile and say “because that’s what we want”.

It’s almost Friday.  Sit back, relax and have a glass of wine (or in my case, a pink girly drink with a squiggly straw and umbrella).  You’ll never make everyone happy.  Never, ever, ever.  They’re not getting married.  You are.  Just smile and say “Because that’s what we decided”.  If they give an opinion, just smile and say “Oh, that’s interesting.  We’ll have to keep that in mind” and move right along. 

Don’t feel guilty about the invitations.  No one except the super crazy rich have unlimited invitations.  You can’t invite everyone.  And you really shouldn’t feel bad about the ones who sent you a gift.  You invited them because you genuinely wanted them to be there.  And obviously, they’re happy for you!
