For some reason, everybody thinks Fiance and I are getting married in October 2012? When we originally started discussing marriage, I DID want October 2012. Fiance insisted he wanted July. He told me it was either marry in July or wait until 2013, lol! But, we never really told anyone I was considering October. The only person who ever heard me say it was FCIL. Since then, I have told her, and everyone else numerous times that Fiance and I have decided to get married next July. Yet, everyone keeps mentioning October. My own mother posted to FB that I am getting married October 20, 2012. I was like, “Umm, mom, where have you been? We’re getting married in July!”
The family hairdresser said she told FMIL’s sister that we’re getting married in October. Last time I got my hair done, I mentioned the wedding being in July and the hairdresser was like, “Oh, I thought it was October?” We had that whole conversation about it, and she still told someone I’m getting married in October.
Why does everyone assume I’m getting married in October. Like I said, I never told anyone I was *considering* October, except FCIL. Since then, we have officially announced our July date to everyone. It’s not like we changed our date or something. Weirrd. It’s driving me crazy, but it’s also a good thing because people I don’t want showing up will not know when the wedding is so they won’t be able to crash it, lol!

That sounds frustrating. That’s presumptuos for them to think that was THE month I guess. I was in a similar situation because I initially was a June 2012 bride but had to switch it to July that same year due to venue change. People still ask ‘you’re not getting married in June?’ So yea, I hear you.

Oh boy, it sounds like FCIL is at it again. Do you think she has something to do with that? Do you think she is spreading false information? The only reason I ask is because from your previous posts, she just seems so envious that you are getting married and she is trying to sabatoge it somehow.

wtf. HAHA. Why can’t ANYONE understand you are NOT getting married in October?
Sounds like my mother when I tell her something and then years later she still thinks it is what I want, despite me telling her otherwise millions of times after that. People don’t pay attention to jack. Well, the good out of it is maybe you will get some early gifts.

I learned my lesson. I told people what month/year we were thinking about and then they all kept bringing it up. I had to tell them that we weren’t getting married that time and have since kept the date we’re thinking about between us.

@Waves2: She probably could have something to do with FI’s family thinking that we’re getting married in October. Not too sure about my mom, though. I think my mom just knows that I love the month of October and I always did want to get married then. Plus, she’s like so out of the loop on my wedding plans. She has zero interest in wedding stuff, so she’s just basically gonna show up where I ask her to, lol! You’re right about FCIL, though, it seems she’s dead set on sabotaging my day. However, I won’t be letting her.
@Coffee cup: Heck yeah! There are several people that I wouldn’t want within a 50-mile radius of my wedding, plus those who choose to invite themselves. If they don’t know when the wedding actually is, they can’t come!
@soyjoy222: Lol, I hate when people haven’t seen or talked to me in a really long time, and still think I want the same things/am interested in the same things I did when they last saw me. My mom is normally up to date on my current interests and happenings, but my dad is like how you described your mom. He never sees me or talks to me, so he is never up to date on anything.

Oh girl I feel your pain!! I mentioned in the very early stages of planning that I thought 11/11/11 would be a cool anniversary. Then, Future Mother-In-Law went and told the whole family/friends that we had set a date. People still ask me about it. Ughhh
