- Wedding: May 2016
Hi ladies I’m a long time lurker and I just needed some advice. My wedding is May 14, 2016 Which is 18 months away. I have only have one cousin and she lives up north and I live in the south so I rarely get to see her. When i got engaged I asked her to be a junior bridesmaid and she said yes.
Heres where the problem is, my aunt S is freaking out about my cousin k missing school. K will be almost 15 at the time of the ceremony and i know how important school is and I know the world does not revolve around my wedding. I have even offered many suggestions to help the situation for example:
i said to my aunt S that I would be totally fine if K missed the rehersal on Friday, they could fly out after work and school on Friday evening, yes they would get in late but K doesn’t need to be up till 2 as the ceremony is not till 4 and I won’t need her help setting up or anything along those lines, then they could leave late morning on Sunday as I am not having a brunch on Sunday. my aunt S shot this down saying I was being inconsiderate and I should move my date to the end of June when K is out of school and how I’m a bridezilla and a bunch of other mean things.
i would change the date but we already have my dream venue, this place books 2 year in advance and I wasn’t going to be able to have it there but there just happened to be a cancelation and we were first on the list to get a call and so May 14, 2016 was the day we got , I was so thrilled I told my bridal party to Included cousin K and then The above mentioned problem started
My maid of honor and one of my bridesmaids will be in college and they said if they have exams they will take them early. I don’t expect them to miss class at all. All my girls are smart and if necessary we could do a mock run through the day off while getting ready not hard at all. I know college is different than high school but I know that at some schools if you talk to the teachers about it being gone they will try to work with you.
Im just wordering am I bring unrealistic or bridzilla-ish. I really want my cousin to be there and I feel like I have tried to come up with solutions so she won’t miss school. I just have no clue what to do if any of you ladies could offer me some advice it would greatly help
