HAHA! You sound like me last March! This was when I mysteriously started having phone issues, and “I’m so sorry, it doesn’t appear to be ringing… I’m only getting some of my phone messages…” Eventually, they all stopped calling me with their unsolicited advice when I didn’t call them back for months.

I felt just like that at the time!! It does pass ๐Ÿ™‚ Hang in there and just try to nod and smile and then do whatever you want. People LOVE telling you their opinions about wedding planning!

Ignore them… People add in their two cents all the time- you don’t have to listen or pay attention… unless they have a gun to your head.

lol I totally understand, we are a year out and I’m already dealing with this. The other day I argued with my father because he wants the event held at an ethnic church with a priest…..even though no one is religious and he doesn’t even go to the church but just because. After explaining that I don’t want that he retorts “what, a priest doesn’t know how to marry couples?” Ugh I didn’t even say that…whatever. smile and nod smile and nod……

Haha. I’m just grossed out by the excessive commercialism and the institutionalized selfishness that goes along with the whole wedding thing. I swear, one more person tries to sell me shit or tells me I can justify doing something ludicrously inconsiderate or downright rude because it’s “My Day” I’m gonna punch ’em. The whole thing is just leaving me with a bad taste in my mouth lately. :/

When people asked me questions about the wedding and I tohught they were going to be overbearing I would tell them I wanted whatever it was to be a surprise…flowers, cake design..all of it!

My friends and family were very hands off but occasionally would suggest something and half the time I would get super annoyed and stressed so I can’t imagine how you are feeling! I would probably just be like, “thanks, but I’m getting really overwhelmed with suggestions and opinions. We will make sure guests are comfortable and enjoy themselves, but otherwise we really just really want to focus on what we already have envisioned and what is important for us”, or something like that ๐Ÿ™‚

Perhaps one of the few perks of being an older encore bride – I may get raised eyebrows but everyone knows better than to tell me what to do with my wedding – especially when I inform them that I am paying for it (FH is paying for the honeymoon) and that I will do damn well as I please!
