I need to vent…
So, the mister and I are currently residing in San Francisco and are planning to have our destination wedding in Maui this summer. We’ve been engaged for ~2 years now. And since the beginning of our engagement when people asked us where we’re getting married, I informed them of our decision to do a destination wedding. So, as we get closer to our wedding and invitations have been sent out, all I ‘ve been hearing from people are "why are you getting married in Maui? why can’t you have a wedding around here so that everyone can go? it’s so expensive to go there!" and on an on with their damn whining! And of course, because I delivered my invitations to the people that live near me (which was mostly all the invitations), they were whining right to my face and questioning my decision. And a few people said: "are you going to pay for us to go to the wedding?" WHAT? UGH!!!!
I’m so frustrated. Why do these people feel the need to put their 2 cents into my planning? Do they think I should give up my dream wedding so that they can come? I don’t care if they go or not. I only care if my immediate family and the mister’s family can go (and they can!).
And another thing: if they know they can’t go for sure, why can’t they just simply return the damn RSVP cards already? Why hoard it? UGH!!!
And of course, they also ask: "are you going to have a reception here too?" So I should plan another reception just for your convenience? Heck no! I’m done planning! The last thing I want to do is to plan some more to have to hear more bitching from people i could care less about. UGH!!!
Okay..thanks for listening to me vent, Ladies! Of course, my mister said: "who cares what people say? Just ignore them! They talk because they have a mouth." But I can’t help it but to be frustrated. Normally I would just say "well, you’re invited but you don’t have to go" but because they are family, i feel I need to be more politically correct with how I handle this situation by chosing my words carefully.
