- Wedding: March 2011
This is my place to come to vent since I feel like I can’t really say anything. I just want to freaking SCREAM! I have been in a horrible mood the last few days or weeks due to listening to them about wedding stuff and I swear I just want to say “Would you be happier if we didn’t get married.”
We are getting married in New Orleans because I am from there. His family lives in Michigan. They bitch or make negative comments at least once a week about how much it is costing them to travel to our wedding. They have told me over and over that our wedding is at an incovenient time and on and on. I finally broke and told them that it is costing my parents just as much to go to the wedding because they are flying in from AZ and FL.
I have to hear them over and over about how money is tight and how hard money is and that they wish they could help us with the wedding but they don’t have the money. I know for a fact that they gave his brother $5000 for their wedding plus paid for the rehersal dinner. I am fine with them not covering much but it would be nice if they said here is $20 to help with something or oh you are working on a DIY project can I help? I wish I could tell them that my parents make WAY less then them and that I am on unemployement and so was my FH up until a few weeks ago yet some how we are making the wedding happen. Both of my parents have given us about $1000 and the rest of the wedding is being paid for by us. I know that I don’t know their full financial situation but I know that they OWN both cars with no payments and do not have any credit card debit. Hell I don’t even care if they give me any money to help with the wedding but I do wish I didn’t have to keep hearing how money is tight for them. Oh but they can go buy whatever they want.
Oh and then this is the one that irks me over and over. My FH has two brothers. One is married and both of them work full time jobs with husband having a second side job. His little brother pays $200 a month in rent and makes good money. For some reason his parents are paying for both brothers to have their own room when in for the wedding. She bought both of their attire for being groomsmen and is paying for both of them to get to the wedding. Normally I would say aww what a nice thing for a parent to do. However, I feel like asking them why don’t you pay for FH attire for the wedding ($80) or help him out with a room since he wont be staying with me until the wedding night? We are also doing a steam boat tour up the Mississippi River and Yep his parents bought tickets for the brothers, wife, 2 Aunts and 2 Uncles….but not us. Maybe I shouldn’t care but I feel like saying stop bitching about money!!! If it was so tight then why are you paying for EVERYONE else when they HAVE a job and neither of us do. We are making sure not to put this wedding on credit at all but it really has been hard to work this out since both of us got laid off about a month after we started planning.
Ok I think that is it. I just am sick of hearing his parents bitch about money when I am worried about keeping up on my bills and keeping food on my table little lone have extra money to buy a new bike or go visit family across the country. F OFF!!!!!
