LOL! I thought that when I started this wedding planning as well. However, I’ve come to realize that alot of the traditions are actually not that intrusive. Although, I’m still not doing a garter toss.

Lol, I wish that was the case. I have athe most passive agressive mother and Mother-In-Law in history and all I seem to get from them are “I’ve already had my wedding so don’t worry about me, I’ll get along.”  and “whatever you want is fine dear”. It would be nice to hear a few family traditions.

@Katnisseverdeen:  Are you inside my mind? Fiance and I went through this this weekend on a reunion with her mom’s family: “you must do this”, “it’s not right if you don’t do that”, “how can you not be doing that?”

UGH. I was mad and upsetted and not gonna lie, I felt like crying more than once.

Lol I knew I’d have this issue because there are a lot of “traditions” I refuse to take part in.  So I nixed the arguments by stating imediately after we announed our engagement to the family that our wedding would be less traditional and if it was a problem, we would elope like I origianlly wanted. I haven’t heard a peep out of them since. However random strangers think they can tell me what I have to have at my wedding and those people I’d like to smack.
