- Wedding: July 2010
My husband and I got married July 16th 2010. He is currently deployed in Afghanistan and he was home on R&R for 2 weeks. My parents rushed us to get married, we wanted to wait a year to save money and have a pretty nice wedding, the wedding WE wanted. Well my parents pushed and pushed so we wound up deicding to just go to the courthouse. Being 4 months pregnant the, “ok” dress I bought didn’t fit very comfortably but i was going to wear it anyway. My mother decides that I cannot wear this dress and she gives me this horrid white dress of hers that was about 2 sizes to big. They invite my sister and her bf – two people i cant stand whatsoever. They all start snapping away as i cry and my husband just sat there trying to not flip out. We get to the courthouse I am miserable, he is miserable and my god awful mother has a smile ear to ear..does she not see how her oldest daughter looks? Its her wedding day! I was a mess. The ceremony lasted all of 3 minutes and then they happy bunch suggests we go take “professional” wedding pictures in the park…really? like I want to remember this? This day was about me and him and neither of us wanted ANY of this. My parents have more then enough money to pay for a professional to come take pics or even a small party that they promised 2 months prior but then 2 weeks before he came home told me, its too short of notice. After the ugly parade of pictures through the park we went to a pricey resturant my mother chose. Of course my sister and her bf were also invited. My husband does not eat seafood, every appetizer we wanted was shot down and they ordered 4 apps that all included seafood. The 4 of them down drinks and food like it was their job. I didnt enjoy my dinner and I couldnt drink so I wasnt enjoying myself to the extent of the “guests”. My husband wasnt thrilled with the place and didnt like how everyone was acting like they had done such a “nice” thing for us. ITS NOT WHAT WE HAD WANTED IN THE FIRST PLACE. After it was all said and done, the bill came, I glanced and saw it was almost $400. My dinner was 27.00 and my husbands was 32.00. He had 2 beers. YOU TELL ME WHO HAD A GOOD TIME? Anyway the night ends and we go home to our house. Did we recieve a card? no. Did we recieve money? no. Did we get a hug or kiss? NO. Then my mother had the audacity to say to me 3 days later, you know your wedding dinner cost your father and I over 400 dollars. WHAAAAAAAT!? I’m sorry from what I recall my husband and I didnt cost u more than 70 dollars. I am more than willing to pay that back to you! needless to say I had a horrible day and I am no longer speaking to them. I just went to two wedding where one couple rcieved a HOUSE from their parents ( who also helped pay for their beautiful wedding) and the other recieved a honeymoon to Hawaii! ( Oh wait their parents helped them too. They both had GORGEOUS dresses and I witnessed one of the mothers cry when she saw how beautiful her daughter was in her dress. Am i ungrateful? no am i a bitch for complaining? i dont think so and am i jealous? sure, that other girls actaully have mothers and parents to give a damn. I hope my parents got a good look at their grandson in his ultrasound photo. He does not need to know these ppl. Who knows, they may charge him for attending his own christening!
