- Wedding: March 2010
I’ve had a really rough period with my parents ever since I moved out without telling them over two years ago. I’m pretty sure it wasn’t the best way to go about things, but at the time I felt I had no other option. That was the roughest period in my life and I have felt like finally, over the course of the last 6 months or so my family and I are being mended and coming back together. Things aren’t perfect, they still have resentment towards my FI for taking me in when I had no other place to go.
Anyways, tonight I went over to my parents house when I found out there were baking cookies. While there I was showing my mom the cloak and gloves I’m considering wearing when we take photos outside on my wedding day. My dad looked over my shoulder and apparently my brother saw and was like, “What’s the face for?!?” Then my dad said, “YOU WANT TO WEAR THAT AT YOUR WEDDING?!? I thought you were having a 50s theme” (which I was considering in the first part of our engagement) I then told him that we aren’t having a 50s theme at all but a medieval theme, which I’ve said over and over since I made up my mind. I’ts not going to be a HUGE medieval theme but there will be subtle hints like in the cake, the men are wearing real swords during the ceremony, I’ll be wearing a cloak, etc.
My wedding dress looks nothing medieval. It’s not going to be a childs birthday part, it will be a classic wedding with touches of our personality. And HE’S NOT PAYING. We are scrapping together all of our money to pay for the wedding. We aren’t rich, either. I’m going to school next semester. We have other things to pay for. They never offered to give us a dime, and even if they did we probably wouldn’t take it simply because of all the problems we’ve had in the past with them.
I feel really stupid for being offended at other things that happened tonight, like seeing my brothers girlfriend at the house. AGAIN. I used to be best friends with her, and she’s standing up in my wedding, but now that I’ve seen how much my parents LOVE her and have caused so many problems with me and my FI it’s hard for me to accept their favoritism. I just feel so damn childish tonight.
