we all know what can be the most frustrating thing about weddings…other people’s opinions! In the middle of trying to craft a celelbration that is meaningful to us and our fiances, we are bombarded by other peoples ideas of what we should or have to do just because that is what they *think* a wedding should be.
So I think we should all take a second and vent.
Keep it brief and list like. no paragraphs of back story or justification, cause that wil just get you wound up. This is a letting-go post! You dont need to give your reasons to anyone!
So, I am marrying the love of my life, and we are doing it our way. Thus, I say Who Cares if they dont like:
-that I am wearing flats to my wedding, and that I am cutting off the train to my dress
-that I am not going to have personalized napkins or out of town guest bags or bathroom baskets or any of that.
-that I am not inviting small children.
-that I cannot give plus ones unless they are for specific significant others we know.
-that I am takng my future husband’s last name AND remaining an independent feminist while doing so
-that I am getting married young at 22
-that our ceremony will not be religious
Our wedding is right for us, and the people who love us will be cool with it too. If not, F*ck ’em!
WHEW. doesnt that feel good?
Now you try.

Wow, I was just venting to my fiance about this over skype right now. I know exactly how you feel, people are seriously annoying.
Each person has an opinion about our wedding and what we want to do during our day. I’m getting so tired of it, they think there is only 1 tradition for everything. What are traditional weddings anyway? No 2 weddings are the same because there are no same 2 couples. Me and my fiance met in the weirdest way and we’ve had the oddest relationship, why can’t we celebrated in the oddest ways.
By The Way I’m wearing flats as well:) I hurt my ankle a few months ago and was bed ridden for 2 wwhole months! But I’m better now but I don’t want to take any chances of hurting my ankle again before our honeymoon.

Okay, I hate it when people think I should invite every single family member, because “you have to”. There are people in my family who don’t “approve” of my fiance because he is Hispanic and because he doesn’t have a lot of money like my sister’s husband. I am keeping my wedding small, and I REFUSE to bend and invite people who are going to sit there, listen to the vows, and pretend like they care, just so they can get free food and I can get an extra gift.

Love the pic!
Vent: Selfish FSIL can suck it if she doesn’t like the dress I picked out. If she can’t suck it up for one day for her own brother’s wedding then she can stay home. I swear if she wears a shawl like she said she was going to, I will rip it off of her and literally kick her ass down the aisle. 10 months of complaining and problems is about ENOUGH.
