I’m just a little irritated with Fi’s family… UGH!!!
So, FI’s sister proposed to her girlfriend in October and they’re planning their commitment ceremony for the end of March. It’s a destination wedding, so there will be a lot of the family that can’t make it. We really couldn’t be happier for them because they’ve been together for like 10 years!
Well Fiance proposed to me on my birthday (December 9th), but I found out that he had this planned since September, so both of our engagements falling so close were totally random. Before we were even officially engaged, we had an idea that we wanted to get married around September (and our date is officially set for Sept. 8th) Well, right before Christmas, FI’s cousin proposed to his long-time girlfriend. We all had an idea that this was happening, however he’s in law school and she just started grad school so they’re planning a long engagement. No big deal, Happy, Happy, Happy…
Well FI’s other cousin (the engaged one’s younger brother) proposed to his girlfriend of 6 months last week (As their Nanny was in open heart surgery) and apparently made a comment about getting married in the fall!!!! WTF!!!! THIS YEAR IS ALREADY TAKEN FOR WEDDINGs!!! GET YOUR OWN YEAR, DAMN IT!!! I’m so irritated and confused as to why they would even consider this, aside from the fact that they barely know each other (and the fact that he wants to get in her pants, but she’s a devout Catholic who won’t have sex before she’s married, and I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with that at all, but comments were made by him about this situation that were a little inappropriate…) Fiance has a ton of family from New York/ New Jersey and it’s like they have absolutely no consideration for the fact that there are already two wedding in the family this year!!! We don’t need/want two in one damn season!
Am I wrong to be upset about this? I mean, I know that nothing is planned for them yet, but to know that they would consider something like that makes me sick to my stomach. I honestly feel that if they were to officially plan something close to our wedding, I would lose my shit. I may actually be forced to be mean to a member of FI’s family, and I get along with everyone in his family! I’ve been putting a lot of time into this wedding already with searching online, going to bridal shows, planning guests lists and save-the-dates. I just feel like them having a wedding close to our will force family to choose between one or the other, and that’s not fair. IT’S OUR SEASON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m sorry this is so long, I just needed to vent…
For anyone who actually reads this, please let me know how you would handle a situation like this? I would hate for this to turn into a slap-down of the brides, but I’m not afraid to fight for my wedding date either.
