- Wedding: October 2017 - Baton Rouge, LA
uugggggghhhhhhhhh. who the hell knew planning a wedding would cause so much effing DRAMA?!?! im so sick of it.
Background- FI and I have been together for 10 years. Lived together for almost 3. We’re putting up plenty of money towards the wedding, along with my dad & stepmom, mom and FI’s parents.
That being said- i designed the invitations, and they say “Together with their Families… yaddayada” They have been printed, and i embossed stamps on every last 150 one of them. Spent 7 hours on those suckers (plus the insert and rsvp). SO they are DONE. D.O.N.E.
last weekend, apparently my dad got curious about the invitations, and asked my stepmom ab them. she told them what they say, and apparently hes all pissed off his name isnt on them. Apparently he’s never heard of this before. Not only is this SUPER common and correct for our situation, theres no room left on the invitation to list out everyones names either. Never in a million years did i think i needed my dad to review my invitations before i ordered them. never.
my mom called me sunday to warn me he was upset. didnt hear anything from him, and felt like ok, maybe my stepmom discussed it with him and hes over it. til i get a text saying he wants to meet up after work today to talk. obvioulsy i know why. he doesnt know i know, but i know.
im just so fed up over people making things WAY MORE DIFFICULT than they have to be. last i checked, this wedding was ab FI and I. I’m doing my best to make everyone feel special. im just tired of so much negativity surrounding our wedding. its sickening. literally. i hyperventialted at the gym last week having a panic attack.
anyone else relate? I have reasons to tell him why the invitation is the way it is- 1, everyone is paying in on this, including us and FILs. 2, theres not enough room. 3, they’re already done. 4, hes not even covering half of the expenses.
please help me keep my heart from exploding from stress.
