- Wedding: September 2011
Things so far have been going on track but recently I’ve noticed things occuring. I’m not a super religious person. Point – blank – period. So to have Jesus, God, Almighty smeared everywhere throughout my wedding in word and in music is not me at all. The problem is I come from a religious family (mom is the church-goer and dad hangs out at home – maybe that’s where I get it from?) My FH family is sort of the same way but I never really saw them go to church a whole lot. The issue is that it feels like those around me are trying to push more religion on me than ever before. Example: I shouldn’t have alcohol at the wedding because of the impression it will give my mom’s churchmember friends – sidenote: we are NOT having alcohol because we’re broke and I don’t feel like playing bartender 🙂 Example: Summarizing quote from my mom “I’m not going to dance because I don’t want anyone up in the church on Sunday talking about me” Example: You need to play gospel music Example: You need to have something relating to God in your programs and it goes on and on and on
My mom knows that I’ve never been a “church” person. I guess from bad experiences when I was a kid. Over time she has cooled off with trying to push me in there and understands ppl have to come on their OWN terms so that’s ok. My Future Mother-In-Law is another story. She has yet to understand that you can’t push ppl and it irritates me because she doesn’t even practice what she preaches. It’s always God this God that but her and my Future Father-In-Law do NOT follow any of it.
UGH! It’s not like I’m a friggin atheist! My fiance and I are the same way. I hate when ppl try to make me conform and whether or not I go to church or play gospel or whatever is our business! I am my own person! End vent!
