- Wedding: October 2013
My mom’s older sister is very much an attention seaker. She never really left Highschool behind. If all eyes aren’t on her or if a conversation has nothing to do with her, she will go out of her way to turn it to her.
Her career at the moment is being the part-time florest at our local Shaws. Because of this, she has decided that she is going to be my florest. This does not mean that she is going to do it for free, but she will be the one to make the bouquets and all other floral needs that we might have.
We are having a fall wedding and I LOVE Dahlias which is what I want to be my primary flower. Apparently my Grandmother’s sister used to trick my Grandmother into going over to her house to help her plant Dahlias every year so my Grandmother hated Dahlias. Because of this fact, my Aunt keeps making comments like “Your grandmother would roll over in her grave if she knew you were using them” or using her little finger gun to blow her brains out every time I mention this flower.
Because of this I have been debating on even using her as our florist and going to Stop & Shop instead… (Burn I know), but I know my mom would be upset because this would upset my Aunt.
Earlier this week my Aunt calls my mom and tells her that her husband is getting laid off. They are closing the program that he is working in so he is out of a job (he is turning 64 this year soon after my wedding). So now the only worker in the house will be my Aunt who works part time at Shaws. This s*cks and it’s too bad for them, I hope it all works out.
Yesterday she calls my mom and starts b*tching at her and said her husband isn’t a loser. My mom’s responce is confusion as we had never said he was. Her responce was that “Well your husband said that people who get laid off are losers!” My father is not like that, he hasn’t had a real conversation with my Aunt in several years because he hates all the DRAMA she starts. My mom defended my dad and this got her even more pissed off.
I know not everthing is about my wedding and I try never to make it seem like that but now my mom and Aunt are not talking. I want to get my flowers squared away as I have now 4 Months left to my wedding and I don’t know what to do. Should I wait it out and see if my Aunt will grow up? Or should I just go with Stop & Shop?
