- Wedding: May 2013
First, I did not want a wedding. My FI and Grandmother who has since passed away wanted it, so we’re doing it because I love them so much and it means more to them then myself.
With less then 80 days to go, I’m just polishing off my wedding list. I’ve only reserved 125 places and have no intention of adding as I don’t want to spend money I don’t have.
Surely, anyone who has ever met me knows these things about me and understand that I’d be much happier at the NY court house, like Lucille Ball (My original dream wedding idea).
So it’s AMAZING how offended people, who I haven’t spoken to in over a year are acting. They are blatantly rude and shocked that they aren’t invited. Second cousins that I haven’t seen in five years and past friends who haven’t attempted any kind of communication in years… Really?
Is anyone else going through this? I mean, I’m already BEYOND stressed out and now I have to deal with ‘oh you know who you should invite?’ I’m very sorry, but at this point, I feel like I’m drowning in flowers and travel arrangements and dress alterations and everything else, I cannot deal with these people. I would love to invite the entire world, but I can’t.
If I’m never invited to another wedding in my life, it will be too soon. I’m sure I don’t mean that, but honestly, I will never complain about NOT being invited to a wedding. My sister had a city hall wedding and as close as we are I didn’t go. Why? Because it was her choice and I respect it! Why can’t people just smile and understand?
And if I don’t vent here, I’m afraid I might snap out loud and I would be mortified if I let myself do that, so please, if you’re being poked and prodded about ‘you should do this’ or ‘you should do that’ tell me about it.
I’ve only heard of these peoples comments and remarks through people. I haven’t talked to any of the ‘offended parties’ at all.
