== Wedding dress shopping with my fave/closest cousin ==
Me: Whoa! these dresses are SO EXPENSIVE!
Cuz: Yeah. You shouldn’t spend that much on a dress. It’s only for a few hours and you will never wear it again. And when you do get divorced and want to marry again, I doubt you’d want to wear the same dress.
Me: *wide-eyed wonder*
Yep, ladies, she was very serious! And it was REALLY awkward coming from her since we culturally have an extremely low divorce rate to begin with.
== My brother’s friend’s dad. This friend’s family is invited to the wedding as the mom is good friends with my mom ==
Friend: It’s going to be a fun fusion wedding!
Her dad: A fusion what?
Friend: The bride and groom are from different cultures and religions. They are blending a lot of those into the wedding. Sounds like a lot of fun!
Her dad: This marriage won’t last. These never do. Oh well. We have to attend though cuz we are invited. Even though I don’t support this union.
== Formal clothing store owner ==
The owner realizes this is a fusion wedding so turns to my mother who also went with us and says: “Oh well! I guess you have to let kids pick whoever they want these days. There is nothing you can do to stop them.”
My mom: *uncomfortable smile*
Me: *eyebrow raise* “Let’s go elsewhere! I am not impressed with what I see here”. (Half referring to the clothing, half to the owners.)
== My very jealous aunt (my mom’s SIL) ==
Aunt to me: So I guess your wedding is probably not going to have any of the fun ceremonies we have to have. Just the same old ‘white people’ church and reception day, right?
Me: Yeah, we are having the ‘WHITE PEOPLE’ wedding. I think that will be a LOT of fun. But we will still add a few of our cultural ceremonies like: (and I listed ALL of them.)
Aunt: *long pause*…………… hm
Can we say offensive and racist and jealous!? Jeez! This aunt is a total b*tch! Anytime we have met after that, she has NEVER asked anything about my Fiance or our wedding. Her daughters think of her as a b*tch too! Go figure! She needs a whole new thread dedicated to her stupidness. One day I will make one. Everytime I start to write anything related to her, my blood rises.
