- Wedding: January 2013
Okay a little back story, will keep this as short as possible. My FI and I recently announced our engagement after months of keeping it under cover so we didnt steal anyones thunder. We had more than three weddings in just a couple of months plus a divorce from a close family member as well as friends who got married too. All that said, my cousin married for the third time over a month ago and all she talks about is her wedding. How long does she get after she is married to keep going on and on and on about her flowers, her shoes, her florist, her friends, her wedding.
Seriously? FI and I are military so we are away from our families, the only real communication with have with them is over FB and short weekend phone calls to our parents. So FB is where we communicate to our friends and family.
Everytime FI and mention something about our wedding she bombards our FB and everyone else in the family’s FB with pictures from her wedding. I know I know I should delete her, once I did and got smack from the family because I supposedly hurt her feelings. I claimed it was an accident and re added her. I can hide her feed but she post it on our status’s. I can remove the stuff from our walls, but not from our status. We cant even talk about anything that might even be remotely related to our wedding.
Also this is her third wedding in less than 10 years. She has only been with her current husband for 9 months total. They met in March, married in late October. Also before she met him in March she was madly in love with three guys prior to him in less than 6 months.
In our family she is the diva. I dont say that lightly. She has been told all her life by her mother she is a princess and anyone and everyone was expected to wait on her all her life. She was a model, a beauty queen, cheerleader, and everything else you can think of. Her mother taught her that because she was beautiful that people will take care of her.
Also she didnt invite family to her wedding, with the exception of several people who she wanted to act as servers and people to do things for her.
For instance, she invited one of our sweetest cousins in the world to do her guest book. She got an invitation but it was only for her and not for her and her husband. My cousin called her and said why is it for just me, My cousin had the audacity to tell her that since she was in charge of the guest book she would be so busy that she wouldnt be able to sit with her husband anyway so there was no point in inviting him.
She invited my mother so that my mother could make sure the caterers were on time at the venue. My mother got an invite to the reception but not to the wedding. My cousin told my mother that since she was going to have to be at the venue anyway there was really no point in driving back to the church for the wedding. My mother turned her down flat and refused to go. Now my cousins mom is mad at my mom because she said my mother was being ungrateful, since she was invited to the reception she should have been graceful and helped with the caterers.
UGH!!!Sorry just ranting….I just want to enjoy chatting with friends and family about our upcoming wedding without her hijacking it.
