- Wedding: July 2013
It went way better than I thought…but then, our wedding party is amazing..my Maid/Matron of Honor is truly awesome…
my mother “helped” to host this (my Maid/Matron of Honor took over to make sure my mother did not make it about her–she is very much an attention sseeker)…
It was relaxed, co-ed, food, drinks, gifts….and even while opening gifts everyone was still chatting so there were not many eyes on us…lol..which was perfect since we both HATE being the center of attention….
we got MANY generous gifts and are so grateful…I finished my thank you cards tonight and they will go in the mail tmw….
downfall was that I had to tell my mother to leave me alone…..she was on top of me most of the time i was there….it irritated me when I was trying to chill and have some alone time….My anxiety makes it really difficult to be in these situations…i generally suck ti up and be very gracious but when i was trying to take some “me” time my mother was on me trying to make me talk to my aunts…I need time to myself during this type of thing, and she knows this…..I told her to leave me alone…i feel bad, but not bad enough to actually apoligize because she knows I need that time alone…..it’s not new….
over all though it was great….my Maid/Matron of Honor is amazing, and I cannot wait for the wedding day
