- Wedding: May 2011
Those are the exact words I told FI last night. He helped me get all of our invites together so I could drop them at the post office today over lunch. He is taking the ones for the guys he works with to work with him and hand those out. He is so cute. He is super excited to get married but we had a discussion last night and I pointed out just where we are at money wise for the wedding and I thought he was having a heart attack. He then made me tally up who my list consisted of and then he did his. He then realized that most of the list was his. I told him that I didn’t care about who has more or what not, but what mattered is that he had invited who he wanted there. I did point out though that we are done with the list. He gave me this sad eyes look and said ok. I said to him in a loving joking way, “babe, the guest list is closed, don’t even think about asking.” He laughs at me and says, “ok, but maybe we should take so and so off and add this person” Really? OMG! WTH! I told him that the invites are all addressed and stamped and sealed. I asked him about the person he wanted to invite and it was some guy he used to play frisbee golf with YEARS ago and ran into at the gym one day. I said, “honey, I know you want to invite everyone, but we just simply can’t afford it. We both want people there who know us and are there to celebrate with us and not just for the free alcohol and food.” He agreed and dropped the subject.
Love the man to death, but dang, no MORE people! I told him that if one more person who is not invited asks to be invited, I will scream!
