- Wedding: April 2014
I think this post requires some backstory. I have Tourette Syndrome and all of the OCD-like symptoms that come with it. I’m a perfectionist, very prone to anxiety and frustration and it’s hard for me to do something without thinking of what everyone else will say. So planning a wedding is doing me exactly zero favors.
My Maid/Matron of Honor is my sister, who is the exact opposite of me. Right now she’s my only bridesmaid, but I want to ask two more people. She doesn’t like one of them because of some EPIC DRAMA last summer. They’re willing to get along now, but they don’t particularly like each other. Sister reacted badly to the news. Le sigh. But this comes just a few weeks after she breaks up with FH’s best man. The other two groomsmen don’t like her because of said EPIC DRAMA. And of course all 3 of them (GMs + FH) are taking the best man’s side (even though the breakup was his fault). Doesn’t help that one of the groomsmen will probably be high as a kite the whole time, and will be the one hiring strippers to FH’s bachelor party even though I said no strippers.
Oh, and sister is Maid/Matron of Honor for her best friend…whose honeymoon is in Orlando. She was originally going to just say in a cottage on the beach, but then her mom traded in a timeshare so she could have the honeymoon in Orlando instead. I mean, the Outer Banks is a perfectly good place to stay for a honeymoon, but not if you’re local (because you’ve seen and done it all). And my wedding is in April– there’s even less to do and it’s not as warm.
So then I saw the honeymoon thread in the 20-something brides board and now I feel like my wedding is going to suck and the honeymoon will be boring. like wtf, how do other under-25 brides manage to afford trips to Jamaica?
Eloping is looking better and better by the second.
