- Wedding: May 2014
This is my first post. I am marrying a groomzilla and it’s stressing me out. We are getting married in 3 months and finally sent the STDs after waiting for 2 months for my FMIL to send me addresses. Nonetheless, my FI wants to invite more people. throughout this process I have been the one gathering all of the information regarding the wedding, while he’s directing me on venues, decor, officiants and etc. To be honest if I didn’t speak up, we would be getting married at a community center, so that he can invite everyone he knows. Getting to the point, today ask tells me that wants to invite more ppl (although the STDs have already gone out). SO, I asked are we allowing these ppl to +1 and he says yeah! Now we agreed to a guest list of 130 which fits our budget, agreed that we weren’t going to allow +1’s to guest who aren’t married or leaving together, I have already bought my linen to accommodate the total and now I’m trying to work on our formal invites. One of the ppl he’s inviting is a peer who throws him under the bus to the supervisor, I askEd why are you inviting him, he said because I sit beside him everyday. Let the record show we don’t have a lot of money and we’re 3 months out. We currently have 160 on our guest list where I only have 43 of that total. His parents are paying 20% of the wedding and we’re paying the remaining 80% where I agreed to pay half. He feels like if we went with a cheaper venue that was $500 and got his cousin to cater then he would be able to invite more ppl. But why should I compromise on being in a better venue and feel like a princess on my day. I’m stressed beyond belief and I personally don’t even want to show up, bcuz I hate doing things last minute. I haven’t even bought my dress yet, because I would like to pay my half of the wedding off by March which will give me 2 months to find something. How would you all handle a groomzilla?
