- Wedding: October 2011
I know a lot of you probably won’t care, but I feel the need to vent. 🙁
I’m really stressed out and upset because of wedding planning and personal issues going on. I have a cavity in the back of my mouth and my tooth is killing me! No money to fix the problem though 🙁 And on another hand, my mom is stressing me to the max!
Here’s the deal…I’m only 21 and my fiance is 26. We are living with my mom until we move out in Sept. or Nov. due to his job location and the money we need to save up for our own place. But I went to the eye doctor recently to get my prescription renewed and what have you, which is something my mom normally would take care of. Since I’m getting married however, I’m taking on responsibility for my own bills, etc. So I was going to order my contacts from 1-800contacts but didn’t have the “bc” or base curve to put into the info for my contacts because it wasn’t on my prescription sheet. I asked my mom what I should do, if I should call the eye doctor and ask or what, and she just bit my head off and didn’t help at all. Yes, I feel dumb not knowing what to do, but really, I don’t want to order through the eye doctor because it will cost more to order through them.
Then, I have another issue with her, she’s being really pushy and insisting that I invite all of these people from the church where we are having the wedding, and I don’t want to do that. We already have 160 people family anf friends alone, I don’t want 300 people at our wedding. And I asked her to get addresses of family and a few co-workers for me, and she comes back with the list of co-workers but doesn’t hand them over to me so I can have them. She also forgot one womans address, all because her address is in the phone book. I ask my mom to look up her address in the phone book for me, and she says, “well I don’t know which one it is”, and I say, “then why didn’t you get it today when you got everyone elses?” and she yelled at me. Its just frustrating because we want to send out save the date cards here within the next 2 weeks, and she just isn’t helping at all. She thinks because we have 8 months left till the wedding that we have enough time to get everything done, but there is so much to do, and so much involved in planning a wedding!
It would help some if I had help from friends or family but I don’t. My fiance is helping out financially but he doesn’t care about the details because he’s a guy. So basically, I’m doing it all on my own and I just feel like crying. I wish I had more support and help when it comes to certain things, it would make my wedding planning experience a whole lot more enjoyable. I know this is supposed to be “fun” but its far from being fun for me. =( Sorry to be such a debby downer, but its all I can do not to cry, just so stressed and frustrated. Hope I dont sound too harsh. =/
