- Wedding: October 2012
So my FI and I were going to go to the justice of the peace and get married but my parents insisited on giving us a wedding. I am the only girl and the baby so my mom said this is her only chance to do this. I am very appreciative of her doing this for us but we just was going over our seating chart and the guest list is at about 240. I did NOT want her spendig so much money on the wedding. I have a HUGE family so I knew it was gonna be over 100 ppl but over 200 NO i didnt think this many ppl. And as we were doing the list she said “oh I forgot to invite _____ She I ask them to come”? Mom the wedding is OCTOBER 8!! less than 2 weeks away NO you shouldnt ask anyone if they want to come. For our venue with the number of guests we have she will be spending at least 10,000. I feel so bad. I dont feel I need all of this to have a happy marriage. I appreciate it but im starting to feel like we should have just eloped or stuck with our plan to go to the JOP.
Am I the only one whos wedding got out of hand?
