- Wedding: May 2012
I feel like FI’s family is just trying to make this wedding fall apart. I tried so hard to plan everything well, made sure there was plenty of time for pictures before the ceremony, so then our guests aren’t waiting two hours with nothing to do, as our ceremony and reception are in the same place, and there’s no alcohol allowed.
So we decided to do pictures beforehand starting at 1 to 3, then ceremony at 4, the groomsmen are doubling as ushers which is why we have to stop pics at 3. But now, FI’s other brother (he has 4), has to work on SATURDAY until 2 at a site 30 minutes away and will still need time to shower and change. He’s the manager, he made the schedule, but apparently he can’t get it off because two of his other employees need the day off, but hello you are a groomsmen in your freaking brothers wedding, no one caused a stir at your wedding two years ago so please just show up on time for mine and be in pics so I don’t wanna strangle your whole family before teh wedding begins. He said he’s going to try and close up early if it’s slow, but hello it’s a saturday, it’s never slow, but I don’t get why there’s nothing you can do to get there by 2, or why you would think that’s ok, even if the ceremony is at 4.
So now, I have to decide whether to change my entire schedule or let my groomsmen possibly miss pictures, and this is one of the groomsmen wearing the tuxes, so I was hoping he would help even out pictures since he wasn’t wearing a military uniform. Ugh. I’m just trying not to stress but it’s so hard when I feel like people are doing these things on purpose just to make me mad.
