I just got married this Friday. It was so much fun! Everything went perfectly. Well, my mom brought my old baby doll which was a little weird. Started out with a picture of the doll on my dress. No big deal. Then she gets brought to the reception. Yesterday I found out that it became a big joke with my mom’s family to use the doll to ruin photos. There are some great photos of our exit which were ruined by her holding the doll above my head. My mother is very…delicate and would break down crying and hide in her room for the whole weekend if I complained to her. The whole weekend I just bit my tongue and tried not to yell at anyone. Just felt like complaining a bit here. I’m not overreacting, right? I paid thousands of dollars for this amazing party, but now I’m kinda dreading seeing the photos with a creepy old doll being held over my head. ARGH.

Wow, I would be upset toO. This sounds….weird. Why on earth would your family think that is funny to do in professional pictures?

I could understand them doing this in three photos….Max because that is funny, but if I looked at picture, after picture, after mother-lovin’ picture and saw that dang doll during important times that I would have liked to hang up in my home or put in my wedding photo album, but couldn’t because so many pictures had that stupid doll in it I’d confront my mother to let her know how upset I was.
I’d show her all the pictures with the doll, and be like “Don’t you think this was a bit obsessive? This is a photo I wanted to hang in my living room for the natural beauty of the image, and because this moment captured was special to me, but now because of this prank I won’t be doing that.” and I would keep repeating that over, and over again to my mom so she could understand it.
I am sorry she is so sensitive but I don’t feel like she should be able to escape out of what she did, she should own up to it and apologize. But that would be me and my mother….*sigh* I am sorry this happened, that sucks big time, and hopefully you’ll be able to move on from this and just smile and enjoy newly wed bliss.

How many photos does the doll appear in? If it’s only some, perhaps your photographer could edit the doll out of them, or at least out of the ones you like other than the doll.
What is with families lately? Pranks suddenly seem to be springing up all over the Bee that are anything but funny

@katehh08: I’m really surprised the photographer didn’t notice this and make them stop. Or ask you “hey, do you really want this doll in all your shots?”

Why would she do that? I don’t understand. Does she have some kind of…issues?
