- Wedding: June 2012
LKJOAWIEJFRLKG I hate wedding planning with my family. Each corner I turn is another stupid problem! First it was my mom forcing me to do paper invites, crazy thing is I’M PAYING FOR THEM! The stupid family has to have the “formal paper invite” otherwise they get “offended.” Then it’s my whole family is 100 people alone, I personally, would like friends to be there. I am cutting out a bunch of my friends because well…I don’t get to have them at my wedding. Oh and on top of that I want cousins that are 10 and under to be in a babysitter, problem with that is my youngest brother is 10 and so whta will happen is some little cousin will be like why does he get to stay and I don’t? And then aunts will come and be like oh can he stay he really wants to stay with your brother. And then I’ll be 100 dollars out bc of the babysitter not doing ANYTHING, not to mention any food or toys I get for them to play with. Then we have the problem that my wedding is basically just a reception without dancing during the day…for my family, because they are Arabs this serves as a problem. I honestly did not want to have a dance party the day of the wedding bc 1. I am working up until the day before the ceremony at the mosque and 2. we are leaving the day after for a drive to CT to move into our apartment! So I decided we would have the huge dance party at my henna party the night before (just women) and then it’s oh do we have to bring you gifts for the henna, wedding, and bridal shower? So I cancelled the bridal shower even though I told them they don’t need to bring me gifts. I understand money is tight, my FI and I are living on an extreme budget. Oh and it gets better, my mom freaked out that I told her my FI and I would be going to get pictures, while they were at the venue waiting for us and greeting people till everyone showed up! She was like no all your cousins had their parents with them the whole time…no because none of them had pictures done early in the dya, none of them were doing an intercultural wedding, none of them got a professional photographer and are paying money for it, and none of them had a lunchtime wedding.
sorry… feeling anxious today..i need a break
