  • Wedding: September 2011

I’ve had a lot of similar negative comments due to it being my second wedding (first for Fiance…and he’s 11 years younger than me).

From a close coworker, who I thought was a friend:  “You’re not doing engagement pictures are you?”  Yes, we are.  “Oh…well you’re not putting the engagement announcement in the paper, are you?”  Yes, we are.

Weeks later, “You’re having bridesmaids?  I just figured since it was your second wedding, you wouldn’t need all of that.”  Really, why…what is “all of that”?!

Or even my sister who’s first initial reaction was, “You’re not wearing white, are you?  I mean, since your daughter will be standing up with you (she’s my MOH), people will obviously know you shouldn’t be in white.”  Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight, because so many first-time brides have never had sex…or God forbid, have children.  Regardless, no, I’m not wearing white but not because of any of those reasons!

My mother just told me my wedding invites aren’t ‘wedding-y’ enough although she couldn’t elaborate on exactly what she thought ‘wedding-y’ was supposed to look like!

My dad suggested that my FH and I go to a “chicken wholesaler” to check prices.  He also suggested that we do a champagne fountain, but fill it with seltzer and food coloring to save money.  It was very hard not to laugh!

@unixfairy:My wedding budget is 35k for 40-50 guests. My cousin insist that I should increase it because everyone is expecting to be “wowed” at our wedding. My response, if you don’t like what I plan, keep your ass at home! Simple.

She also suggested that I should rethink having a destination wedding because everyone can not afford to spend so much money to fly to a wedding. My response, if you can’t afford it, stay home! Simple.

FFIl said it’s not appropriate for my mom (who raised me as a single mom) to walk me down the aisle b/c she is not a male.  I seriously almost knee-ed him in the nuts.  I wish he would get in the way of that; I will straight up resort to violence in the middle of walking down the aisle.

WhenI told the president of my company about my engagement he said “Well he didn’t come and ask me for your hand in marriage.”

I asked my Future Mother-In-Law for a preliminary guest list so we could start thinking about venues.  She accused me of keeping her out of the loop and being a stand-offish b***h because I didn’t tell her we were planning the wedding.

I wanted all my bridesmaids to have the same shoes, but seeing that the dress is more expensive, I decided to tell them my requirments on the shoes and have them find their own, so if that find something cheaper they can get it.

Future Mother-In-Law – “Well, I think you should have them all in the same shoes.” My response – you won’t see them anyways becuase the dresses are floor length. Future Mother-In-Law – “But what if they have different heel sizes? The girls won’t be the same hight.” My response – The girls are already different sizes in heght, so the shoes wouldn’t make them all the same height.

“Did hell freeze over?” – my brother on finding out that he had about an hour to get himself and his two kids to the Falls for our last minute JoP wedding.  Granted, it was only fair as we’d been engaged for 10 years and had 3 kids before the big day!  

I was not offended then nor am offended now.  I still laugh about it!

  • Wedding: February 2011

Last year Fiance and I picked up a friend at the house of another friend I went to high school with but am not that close to, we’ll call her Jane. Jane’s mother was out front in the garden when we arrived, so out of politeness, we got out of the car and went over to say hello. When I introduced Fiance and said we’d set a date, the first words out of her mouth were a stern, “It’s about time!”

Why I find this funny: Jane got married several years back while she was in first year med school when neither she nor her fiance had any source of income, so they had to live in her parents’ basement for a year until they could afford to rent their own place. When asked why they didn’t wait until they were more financially stable, Jane replied that their relationship was pretty much that of a married couple except without the sex (both quite religious) so they might as well get married sooner rather than later so they could enjoy that too.

Me? I ditched Fiance right after we got engaged to go to the UK and get a Masters degree before we got married. We did the long distance thing for a year, and yeah, it was hard, but I’m home now and a have a graduate degree and a job, and Fiance and I will go into marriage with financial stability and housing arrangements that don’t come packaged with Mom and Dad a ceiling away.

Was that worth a 3 year engagement? You bet your sweet bippy. So cram it, Jane’s mom!

@unixfairy:

Future Mother-In-Law “You can wear his sister’s wedding dress for your wedding”  Me “Erm no, the dress is kinda the biggest part of the whole thing”  What I felt like saying is “How creepy is that wearing my FH’s sisters wedding dress”  She is now trying to push the veil and mathcing earring and necklace set on me.  Creepy, creepy, creepy.  ARGHH.
