- Wedding: December 2009
So, our wedding is pretty expensive, the FH and I are paying for most of it ourselves. We are having the reception at a hotel for our out of town guests, as well as for ourselves, since the wedding is out of town for us too. So the issue is that for a few months we have been planning on paying for parents, wedding party hotel rooms for two days. Reheasal the day before the wedding and the night of the wedding. We are also getting the same suite we have comped to us the night of the wedding for me the day before the wedding for a bunch of reasons. a) having hair stylists come to do hair for entire wedding party (6 BM’s + me) and the two mothers also make up general getting ready for the wedding stuff b) have 80+ centerpieces to be put together the day before, etc
And today the FH asks me WHY I need this suite and WHY nobody can stay with me. Now my FH is a very smart man, also very analyitcal, but sometimes he drives me nuts because he has this annoying habit of not listening to what I say. We had discussed this plan for the last month, and today he’s asking why I need it, and why nobody can share. So I kindly explained to him that nobody will want to stay with me because they will have to move their things to a different room the day of the wedding. And the most likely person to stay would be a Bridesmaid or Best Man. When would she have time to move her things? After the ceremony and pictures, but before the reception? That’s absurd!
I understand he is trying to save money by doing this, but I am finding it extremely irritating that I have told him this plan countless times before and he hasn’t said boo to it, but now he’s complaining about the extra $135 it will cost to have the suite instead of a regular room on top of a $30,000 wedding. Someone please explain this to me!
Sorry for the rant, I’m just sooo mad right now!
