- Wedding: March 2013
Ok, this is not my first sister vent. And with her deciding to get married only 3 months after my date, Im sure it will not me my last. (Thank god she didn’t decide on a date before me…) So a few months back, before either one of us was officially engaged, she was looking through my pinterest boards and asked what colors I was thinking of for my future-wedding. I told her navy and light green, with some grey accents. She said, ‘Oh, I was thinking grey and yellow. Im glad we have 2 different styles so they wont look too similar.’ I agreed and that was that. I have TONS of saved inspiration (that she has seen recently, and every time she logs into pinterest) and I dont think she has any that are color specific. Today we were at the bridal boutique looking for her dress (I just bought mine, hooray!) and she was having trouble deciding if she wanted to keep looking, or try the same one back on again, so they suggested we look at bm dresses for a minute. We get upstairs and my mom asks my sister what colors she’s thinking about and she says ‘green, kind of a light green.’ I literally stopped and just stared at her. My moms acting like its no big deal since the weddings will be different. But then, my sister asks me what my colors are (navy and light green) and then says ‘no its not, I asked you that a while ago and you said yellow!’ WTH I dont have a single yellow anything on any inspiration board, everything is navy and green. I had to walk away I was so mad! and now my mom thinks Im in the wrong because I was “starting to get huffy” over something so small…. Why is she trying to take my colors? Im seriously debating using yellow now so that we dont have the same colors, but that kind of bums me out, even though I love those colors together too.
Ok, so my mini-vent is a little long winded. Can someone talk me down? Or am I doomed to have punchy-feelings through next march?
