- Wedding: October 2014 - Greenbrier Country Club
I had my first bridezilla moment today. Which oddly enough, as soon as it happened I was kinda excited. Having a bridezilla moment means I am actually marrying Mr. _____. It kinda made things less surreal. 🙂
Some background:My mom has been almost more excited about my wedding then I have. Sometimes to the point where it’s frustrating, but I know I am blessed to have her support.
Well, she offered to throw us an engagement party and we agreed to have a small guest list (just bridal party and immediate family); however my mom starting adding some of her friends onto the list. I told her I was ok with this since those people will be invited to my wedding and told my mom that I was going to invite some of my closer friends who will not be in the bridal party. She was ok with that.
So my mom ended up ordering 40 invites (20 for FI’s side and 20 for ours). That’s a whole lot of people!
We ended up having 2 extra invites, so i told my mom that I had a few people I could invite, but if she wanted to invite someone else, “let me know and we’ll figure it out.”
She was working on the invites while I was at work.
When I got home from work I noticed she had addressed the extra invites to two of her friends without discussing it with me.
I got so mad! Lol… I’m going to blame it on stress from work and lack of sleep because I am so embarrassed at how angry I got over this.
I’m glad my mom wasn’t home because I throw a HUGE hissy fit.
I was cool with my mom inviting one of the ladies, but I was not ok with inviting the other. I have only met her a few times and I feel super uncomfortable around her. Plus, she is not invited to my wedding.
I wanted to yell at my mom, but somehow i calmed down. I ended up texting her saying something along the lines of, “Thanks for everything your doing, I can tell you have been working hard on getting the invites done. I noticed you invited someone who i am not inviting to the wedding though. Call me!”
She ended up coming home a few mins later and after we talked, I just decided to invite the “uncomfortable” lady to my wedding.
I realized it wasn’t a big deal at all.
So proud of myself for talking with my mom calmly, but disappointed and scared for the future with my outburst of anger :/
Has anyone else blown up over something you thought was a big issue and then realized how silly the issue was in reality?
Please share 🙂
