- Wedding: August 2013
Can I join this new company? Failing that, can you guys do my wedding?
I hate weddings too! I hate the people that get upset about someone else wearing a dress with “too much white” on it to a wedding, people needing their bridesmaids to match the napkins, and why is the first step in wedding planning have a colour scheme?? How is that even important?? How can people actually care about this crap and spend all their free time focusing on it?? And how the hell can everyone else in my life care more about my wedding than I do?!
After many tearful nights with my fiance trying to balance my ideal wedding (courthouse, dinner, bed) with his family’s and my friends’ ideal wedding (big church ceremony with all the trimmings), fiance and I have just decided to have an engagement party in my parents’ backyard and get married there.
If your family wants this why not let your mom handle all the decisions? I would just let her know that you will be happ to show up and trust her to organize a nice wedding and if she wants to do so, change the contact info to her. Sounds like she may even have fun making such decisions.
I can’t decide whether my favourite bit is “double-homocide red” or “porno cupcake”
I’ve just told my parents I’m pretty easy going, the only thing I will not negotiate on is my customised robot cake topper. I’m having those robots, dangit!
Amen! lol I am right there with you. I am happy that everything has been done since july but i still STILL get asked what else is there to do? REALLY!??! These are the same freaking people that KNOW everything IS DONE!! it very annoying to the point where I just simply say “Im over it already!” lol :))
I really think the comment you made to the guy about the suicide red is freaking awesome! lol He should get the effin hit already! Some people are just down right stupid. 😀
Heh. My theme is “open bar”.
Ummm totally getting there!! I’ve had a 17 month engagment (6.5 to go!) and at the beginning- let’s be honest, like a year out from getting engaged until 3 months ago- I was super pumped! Constantly reading blogs, looking at gowns, buying magazines, EVERYTHING. And now? I don’t give a damn. I want to marry my best friend. Wedding planning is akin to marathon training- you train for 4 months + for 1 day. And, this may be rude, but I’ve gotten to the point where I see all the “dress regret” threads and I’m like, “Just pick a damn dress!! It won’t be the end of the world” (in my head, of course).
This is my favorite thread on WB ever.
I hired a planner cause, if FI’s g-damn family wasn’t so g-damn big, I wanted to elope. Still do, but came this far, 2weeks left so meh.
So I hired a planner. And. I still get numerus emails from her in a day. “should the guestbook table have a linen???”
1. I don’t know and…
2. Honestly I don’t care! It’s just a table linen. I hired you to decide.
She still hasn’t told me what a “styling template” is… But apparently it was due yesterday, along with a bunch of other stuff I thought I hired her to do…
Can I just have my rings and be married already?
So I’m just conditioned to answer with, “whatever you think will work best”
Totally agree with this! I gave my aunt a really vague list of everything we needed, stating doesn’t matter if it doesn’t match. Said we needed table cloths. She was insistant they all had to match. Why? I don’t care. I just to have a good meal, have a bit too much to drink and dance my arse off. I don’t think that’s asking to much!
Hi ‘I just want to be married, so leave me alone Bees’, I am a MOB (that is Mother of Bride for those who don’t know, Ha Ha) and I want to thank you all for this amazing thread. You have all made me finally understand my 29 year old daughter.
She was and is the rebel in the family and I constantly say to my husband, ‘I would have never imagined in my whole life that XXX would want to a) get married and b) to have a real wedding’.
Now I understand, she is doing it for me, and I love her for it.
But, she has told all the vendors that I am her ‘wedding coordinator’, so guess what… I am doing it all, making all the decisions etc.
All she said is that she likes red like red roses (that I knew) and her Fiance likes blue – whatever blue.
I am doing the rest. So thanks again, because now I know she is doing this for me, even though I am doing all the work and happy to do it
I needed the laugh I just got from this thread. Thank you!
