- Wedding: October 2010
Okay, so up until no we have had no problems whatsoever! But here’s the story: I was at their house on yesterday and she walked right up to me and confronted me (not both of us) on how she thinks that we’re being inconsiderate of others by having our wedding on a Friday evening. She says that people will be getting off work and not have time to get to the venue on time, etc. I stood there in shock and didn’t say anything. I opted for silence rather than completely going off. If you feel cornered..first response is to defend yourself. Of course I am thinking, “we’re paying for the wedding..so unless you wanna pay shut up!”
Fiance and I left and I broke down. I wa stotally confused and taken aback. I had no idea how to react. At first he didn’t understand why I didn’t say anything, but when I explained he got it. He just told me that next time just say how I feel and stand up for what I feel and she’d probably back off.
Fiance and I had a long talk and decided to change the day to Saturday, but not after I made him prove that it wasn’t because of his mom. My mom had brought it up weeks ago, but I basically told her it was our day and that’s what we wanted. So, if he had wanted to change it solely on her views then I would have added him to “the list”.
We compromised and I said that as long as I still get my evening wedding, the day of the week does not matter. So, I guess everyone can be happy. He said that she can’t get the early wedding that she wanted though. I was like good.
Please help me. I don’t want things to be awkward, but I don’t really know how I will feel when I see her again. I didn’t even want to go back in the house after we came back from dinner, because I didn’t want to see her.
