- Wedding: August 2011
My Future Mother-In-Law has been very helpful with the wedding. We don’t always have the same vision but we are usually close enough. I think it makes her very happy to help and be very involved and it is nice to have help. Since she is so into the planning and there are a lot of things I really don’t care about I have just let her run with some of her ideas. Not exactly what I would have picked but I don’t care enough and its one less think that I have to do. Well I think I let her run with too many of her ideas that she is now doing stuff and telling me later. Generally i don’t care but she has started decorating my cake table. The cake is my thing, it makes me happy, I love it, it keeps me sane just thinking about it….this sounds like I’m five but the cake table is mine.
I’m doing a lot of little cakes and 3 types of pies so I will have about 10 cakes or pies on my cake table and I have a very particular vision for the table. She ran out to thrift stores and decided she could collect glassware and make the cake stands. Its a very sweet thought and I appreciate the effort but she brought all different styles and colors and its just not at all what I had in mind. now she emails me wanting to use all this cut crystal glass and vases to add to it and again its just not my thought.
How do I polielty tell her that I really appreciate the help and I’m happy to have you do what ever you want for the centerpieces, the flowers, the guestbook, the photo planning, the rehearsal dinner, the slideshow but please leave my cake table alone?
