- Wedding: October 2013
So I am planning my wedding and I know it will come with its fair share of stresses, especially since my mom is so very particular and what not and she is paying. This being said I do have the right to vent and get her crazy off my chest every so often right? So I was venting this morning to my maid of honor and I was just really saying my mom, another thing that is causing me stress right now, doesn’t like the invitations I have picked (let me just say she has not seen them, I just told her the feel of the invitations). I am having a 20’s theme wedding, I am going to have a Gatsby style ceremony and reception with a speakeasy themed cocktail hour. I pick invitations that go with the era, they have a kind of vaudeville feel with very awesome colors and script with out being to over the top I feel. My mom says that dosn’t match the rest of the wedding but The Great Gatsby was opulent and over the top with crazy parties and my mom thinks it is pearls and elegance. Any way got off on a tangent, so I am a little irritated and I will have to sit down and just tell her me and my FI love them and those are the ones I am going to print (I am paying for the invitations myself). My maid of honor just kind of looks at me and says well you knew this would happen when she said she would pay for it. It is slowing going to become her wedding….. Really no I am sorry you just need to stand up for yourself or words of encouragement. I just feel kind of deflated now. I love my maid of honor to death and she is my best friend but sometimes I just want to not see her for a while. I guess in her words I knew what I was getting into when I picked her, she is not one of those people who lets you down easy, she says exactlly what she is thinking with out feeling bad. I guess I will have to call another bridesmaid to get that nice it will be ok reaction lol. Sorry to just vent I just need to get it out so I could get this dark cloud off my head.
