- Wedding: August 2012
Ugh I am so tired of this wedding planning already and we have 7 months to go!! I like to please everyone, but I am finding this does not go hand in hand with wedding planning!! This is my first vent, and hopefully only, on this site.
I asked my Maid/Matron of Honor a question regarding our limo we are planning to rent to get from the ceremony to the reception. She then asked if she could pay for her boyfriend to ride with us because he won’t know anyone. Although, I wish we could accomodate everyone’s SO, we just can’t afford to fork out $500-$700 to transport the wedding party plus SOs. I had to tell her we are on a strict budget and were only going to have the wedding party and asked if he could go with one of the other bridesmaids husbands. I am hoping she is ok with this. I don’t like having to do this, but the fact of the matter is we just can’t afford it and if we let him in then we’d have to let everyone else in.
I fear another awkward situation is going to come up when it comes to the Grooms Dinner. My Fiance only wants to include the wedding party and family. He does not want to include SOs. I feel the opposite on this because one of my bridesmaids and her boyfriend are traveling to our wedding. So that would mean he’d be on is own for dinner. Unfortunatly, I’m not the one paying for it so I have to keep it between my Fiance and his parents. Thankfully, I convinced him that if my brother gets engaged before our wedding, he needs to invite his Fiance.
Another thing, my mom!!! I love her, but she has been very opinionated with this whole wedding. Last night she said I was being a bridezilla just because I was telling her about something I saw that i wanted to add to the centerpieces. She said that I am changing everything and she just wants it to look elegant. Ugh!!! She has also had opinions about my shoes and I am sure more is to come. I just wish she wouldn’t object every idea I have.
I’m also feeling stressed out because one of my bridesmaids bought a ticket to come visit me, but a few weeks before she was supposed to come she bailed on me to go on a different trip with another friend. I’m a little upset by her cancelation because I could have went to NYC with my Fiance, but didn’t want to have something happen and not be able to pick her up at the airport. She said she wants me to hang out with them, but that requires driving an hour and a half. I think she is mad that I am not hanging out with them, but traveling in SoCal is always a mess and I don’t have a job right now so its not like I can spend all this money. I offered for them to meet for lunch near me, but that wasn’t possible. I feel like I have to go hang out with them just so that it isn’t awkaward when she is in our wedding. Why am I worried about her being mad at me when she was the one that bailed on me?
