- Wedding: May 2012
I’ve read a few posts about wedding jealousy and am totally in that boat myself. Do I need advice, not really… just a place to let it all out because there’s got to be a whole helluva lot of us feeling this way.
So our wedding is literlly sandwiched between 2 extrodinaryily massively, gorgeous, insanely expensive weddings.
Wedding 1: November 2011 300 guests, fancy ritzy downtown ballroom complete with a bar made completely out of sculptured ice. Yes, ICE. Effiel towwe vases, with 3ft flower arragnements on top.
Wedding 2: June 2012 200 guests, fancy, exclusive, members only club ballroom downtown. Vera Wang dress (x2) and Monique Loullier (sp?) YES THREE VERA/ ML dresses!!! A world renowned photographer at 15K and I can’t imagine what else.
Now I get it, people can all afford different things, and obviously they got a lot more to blow than I do but it KILLS me when these brides say…(and I know they’re just excited brides to be like myself and mean nothing negative by it)
“oh, so who did you hire for M/U?” me: so and so… “oh, never heard of her” me: yeah, I know she’s cheap and you don’t do cheap.
“oh, so who did you hire for photographer” me: so and so… “oh, never heard of them” me: yeah, I know I searched craigslist and you don’t do craigslist
“oh, so did you look into that such and such” me: yeah I did, and then shat myself. “oh…” me: yeah, because I’m poor and can’t afford a 10K decorator…
It makes it all that much worse when I have to verbally spit out that my vendors are on the cheap end of everything they can afford which admittedity is a bummer.
but my day is coming on right up! eeeeek
