- Wedding: June 2010
So you may not think that this belongs under the reception board but it does relate, I swear.
So I have a decent size wedding party, 7 on my side, and 1 junior. All of my girls are close friends that I have been friends with for at least 5 years some for 15 years. However, one I have only known a year and a half, i work with her and we have a great time at work and we took a girls trip. She has been kinda crappy since I got engaged i chalked it up to misery loves company and since she is single she was just jealous.
I put her in her place and now she is coming around and by that i mean she doesnt sigh when she hears wedding talk. p.s. she is 23 (no offense to anyone)
Well we have a tight budget, like most people these days and I have been back and fourth about a few things, round tables versus long, linens and chair covers or not, etc. Well i am doing round even though it cost us 150 more for round (not sure why) and now i am contemplating linens or not plastic but a material in between.
Ok sorry for the back story here is the problem. My “friends” response to these things are……..
me- I wanted to stay away from a hall atmosphere and go with a banquet center- well ultimatey i went with the hall since its less expensive
her- you only get married once, im going to have mine at a golf course blah blah
me- im not sure about round tables
her- you have to you dont want it to look like a graduation party
me im dont know if i want to blow the money on linens
her- you only get married once you dont want cheap plasitc,
me- i have decided against linens
her-oh man, its going to be a sight, i cant wait
her- did i hear you say paper napkins?
me- yeah her- oh my gosh and she makes this look like im suddenly trashy because im not going to blow a ton of money on the things that arent going to make it personal to me
i told her that she doesnt have to be in my wedding, she said she is going to be in it cause she cant wait to see what this looks like and every wedding she has bene to had linens and cloth napkins. I told her that i was not having her in my wedding to mock me she said she was just joking with me.
am i over reacting?
