I just wanted to give you a lot comfort and warm wishes.

 

1. Your menu is very close to ours, and EVERYONE is excited for it. We are having pulled pork, pulled chicken, green beans, BBQ beans cole slaw and mac and cheese. If they want more options go to a restuarant. You are giving them enough.

 

2. My FI (the only pop drinker in my house) said “Why would we have pop, why can’t we just have punch,” I think this is a great idea, but we are also having sweet tea and lemonade, and unsweet tea. If your sister wants to bring coke, let her bring some for herself, but she will look tacky as hell. If she wants a turkey, let her do the same, but you’re not paying for it.

 

3. I am coming down to Blackbird, by the Bealtes. Almost no one comes down to Here comes the bride anymore. And a lot of the people who post on here that come down the aisle to something traditional, often say “I know it’s cliche, but it’s pretty” I think more people respect a new choice, and as long as there is a pause, people will know. Let the flower girl or last bridesmaid get all the way up there. Take a pause and start whatever song you want.

 

4. Again almost everyone customizes their vows in someway. We are doing more traditional repeat-after-me vows, but, only because FI thinks he would crack up laughing otherwise. But we didn’t keep the honor and obey. Weddings are for you to express how you feel and what you want your partner to know before you begin your marriage it is NOT a binding contract in that if anything is left out it doesnt mean you shouldn’t do it or youre any less married.

 

5. Good luck, but don’t budge. I am paying for my wedding, so I am doing what I want, and I just wanted you to know that the things she is upset about are perfectly normal and acceptable, and almost if not totally expected nowadays.

And the way I handle it when/if anyone comments. I say oh that’s a nice idea, but we’re probably going to stick with what we had planned. Or That might be cool, we’ll see, but we are really excited to do something new and unique to us.

 

It’s your wedding not hers. or any of the other weddings she said she changed things at. When my brother said, “You should have a few kegs, and wine, and just buy all the alcohol yourself.” I said, “That would be cool, it’s just not in the budget, but if you’d like to help out, that’d be great.” and he did. He is now in charge of alcohol for the event and is happy to contribute.
