I’m at work for 2 more hours and have nobody to go crying to right now. I’m just so frustrated with dealing with people’s crappy attitudes and uncalled for statements or opinions. The whole time I’ve been planning this thing, which has only been 4 of the longest freakin months of my life, I have had to put up with my ideas and plans and visions being questioned, criticized or just simply frowned upon.
I feel the weight of the world on my shoulders with nobody to help keep it up. I just want to be married to the man I love and go on with our happy lives.
Okay, that’s all for now, I have to get back to work. (I need a drink.)

For situations like this I like to use the standby, “well thank you for your opinion, I’ll take that into consideration” just to get people to shut up.

I am sending hugs your way! It is amazing to me how there are some topics when people feel totally free to provide unsolicited advice: weddings, pregnancy, parenting. And those are some of the most emotionally wrought experiences a person can go through. Jeez.
I recommend you read the blog “A Practical Wedding”. She gives some great advice on how to do your wedding your way, and how to deal with the outside world.

Man, I feel like brides post about this same idea so often! Doesn’t it just drive you crazy? Why in the world is it so common, and why do so many people apparently feel like it’s totally okay to just share all the things they don’t like about your wedding with you? That sucks, jezzybell!

Jezzybell, keep your chin up and think happy thoughts. Even if the happy thoughts that you’re thinking are how much you’d like to punch that other person in the face while they’re standing there raining on your parade! LOL!
We all deal with it, so just bring it here and we’ll keep you cheered up about your awesome plans!

Sorry! It is irritating when people tell you what to do… I just respond with a noncommittal smile. Can you stop talking to people about the details? No one can criticize you if they don’t know what you’re doing. 🙂
