- Wedding: July 2013
I love my mother. She means the world to me. But when it comes to my wedding, I think she has a hard time getting her mind around the fact that it’s not going to be a typical wedding.
My FH and I wanted a traditional ceremony- the dress, the suits, the vows, the church. SHe is really glad we are doing this.
The problem comes with our reception. We did not want a hall, or an event centered around dancing. We just wanted a big family reunion, backyard bbq feel. We just wanted it casual and fun. We are very lucky that his mother knows someone with a pretty nice backyard and they have offered it to us to use. So of course we said yes.
My mother is less than thrilled. She keeps insisting that I look at VFW halls and such. Cause you know my sister had a lovely reception in a VFW hall. Today she told me that no one will show besides family if it rains and we have it in a backyard. Umm really? She knows I am looking at tent rentals and even seeing if the church we decide on has a space for social gatherings that we might be able to use in case of rain.
She just keeps insisting that I have this regular reception (nothing wrong with those that want that) but it’s not what we want. We are paying for this all on our own. I just can’t seem to make her understand that this is what we want.
Just a little rant. I love my mother and I think once the day gets here, she’ll be perfectly fine. I know she just wants the best for her baby. I just wish she understood…..
