- Wedding: July 2011
SO & I are in the “pre-engaged” stage I guess you could say (ring’s picked out so I’m in anxiously-awaiting-driving-me-crazy mode). We’ve been talking about the actual wedding for a few months now and b/c it will be on a super budget (SO went back to college to finish and I’m finishing up grad school and we’ll be paying for it ourselves) and last night I was so excited because he agreed to elope with me on a beach <–my ultimate dream wedding.
Well, he asked his boys how they’d feel about this and two immediately said they’d be pissed and they thought they’d actually be IN our wedding…whaaaat???
He doesn’t exactly run with a “settled down” group of guy friends; they’re all doing the stereotypical early to mid twenties out at the bars, always out for a good time type of thing. Which is fine and they’re all fun guys, it’s just neither of us anticipated the boys of the group being upset if we eloped!
Anyone else run into surprises like this?
