After this weekend I’m all ‘weddinged’-out. My family and FIs family got together to start planning our wedding. We met with the wedding planner on Saturday and did some other wedding stuff.
My mother is wedding crazy. I’m the first to get married, and I understand she is super excited, but she just takes things a bit to far.
She has bought all the guest favours with boxes to put it in before even asking us what we thought about it. I haven’t even decided if I wanted favours. She has decorated the gift boxes in butterflies and ribbons which is completely out of our theme (we are having a super simple, small farm wedding)
Yesterday I showed everyone the invitations I designed, and she didn’t even say anything about the design, all she could focus on was the fact that my name was first on the invite, not FI’s (which I understand is the traditional way to do this) All she could talk about for the next hour was that she thinks FI’s name should be first. She is also spending alot of time covering books for some reason. Each time I ask what she is going to do with it, she says “decoration”. She is spending alot of money on crap, but she shuts down everytime I try to talk to her.
Today my dad calls me and says that my mother is aparantly furious that we aren’t inviting one of her friends to the wedding. From the beginning we wanted a very small wedding (max 60 people), it will basicaly only be close family and a few of our dearest friends.
My sister is getting married 2 months after me, and my mother was very angry when my sister told her that she won’t be inviting my FI’s parents to the wedding (which I totally understand), but doesn’t even bat an eyelid that her FI’s parents aren’t invited to my wedding. Friday my mother even told my sister that maybe she and my FI’s brother can hook up this weekend….
*Sigh*…. My mother is crazy.
So any other mom-zillas out there?
