- Wedding: May 2011
My aunt has been very generous all my life. She lives in Canada, and flies me up there twice a year to stay at her cottage, takes me shopping, spoils me big time. As a wedding present she is paying for the honeymoon suite at an award winning B&B in downtown Savannah, and keeps telling me that once she is in town she wants to take me for a spa day and all this other stuff. I keep telling her it’s not necessary, and just the fact she is traveling down here is enough.
Anyway, on to the little bit of drama..about a month ago my FI and I were wanting to ask a family member to be the officiant at our wedding. We planned on asking my aunt to do it. My mom and her were talking on skype and brought it up, and I don’t know if she was being sarcastic, but my aunt said something about having their brother do it. While I never specifically asked her, to me that was her saying she didn’t want to, so the next day I called my uncle.
Last week I find out that that she is upset about something, and pretty sure it has to do with us asking my uncle to perform our ceremony. When my mom talked to her she said she was fine and had an opinion about it but “it didn’t matter” and she was perfectly fine with everything. Because she seems to be a little upset I want to make this better by finding a way to include her. This is where I need your help!
I’m having a simple ceremony in a garden, and I do not have a wedding party. I wanted to include my two closest friends that would have been BMs so they are doing a reading. I don’t really want to have another reading. Can anyone think of any other way I could include my aunt or show her how thankful I am for everything she’s done for me?
