- Wedding: September 2012
I’m getting married on the 1st of Sep and it scares me that I’m not extremely excited like I should be nor do I feel like a bride. Don’t get me wrong, I love my Fiancé to bits but for the last couple of months planning the wedding has just been stressful. My mom has been extremely supportive and she has been going out of her way to help me “get things done”. However, my mother in law who frankly isn’t contributing a cent towards the wedding has been getting my temper up to the wrong level. I feel like my ideas are constantly being changed and that we have been accommodating my fiancé’s mom a lot more than my own. She wanted the church which we gave to her, she wanted the bridal table which we gave to her, she wants to make a speech which we gave to her and she wanted to be involved in the planning which we did.
Im at a point where I honestly wish this wedding was over and done with because I thought planning this whole thing would have been a lot more fun. My kitchen tea, bachelorette and wedding is coming up but I don’t even feel like I want to participate because I know I’m going to feel like it’s someone else’s “party” and not mine. I don’t want to say anything to my fiancé right now because I know it will create a big fight, you know how men react to these things… he will say something like ‘you woman will fight / moan over anything’ + it’s his mother I’m moaning about. Any advice?
