“do want you want, its your wedding”

You: “THANKS, I will.”

I do not understand letting your wedding become a runaway train you want to jump off of. I got pressure too, and I eloped because it was becoming a miserable circus instead of a celebration of our marriage.

Then I would “do what you want” and have the wedding on the west coast.  It seems like your family is going to be nothing but pains in the -you know what!  I have a feeling that if you continue planning your wedding where your family is, you’re going to continue being in tears and being unhappy.

This is your wedding, NOT theirs. Don’t let them ruin your big day. They don’t like your date, your venue, your dress? Well, that’s too bad, for their wedding they can make their own decisions. But this is your day, your choices.

“I don’t like that on you blahblahblah”
You: “Well I DO.”

“You should do this like that, invite this person, blahblahblah”
You: “If you don’t mind, this is my wedding, and I’d like to make the decisions…thanks.”

If you really can’t change the venue, please just remember to stay positive. Let them do their whining, but remember that this is your day, and ultimately, you need to make the decisions that will make you happy, not your family.

Sometimes I think weddings tend to bring the worst out in people. Just write it off as temporary insanity and do your own thing. I also think moms sometimes tend to try to live vicariously through their son or daughter’s wedding, for whatever reason. They think it somehow reflects on them as a parent.

I do believe weddings can bring out the craziness in some people, but not all. If I were you, I’d really just plan my own thing and not ask for opinions about anything from anyone. That way nobody gets much of a say as it’s already been done! Once you begin sharing or asking what other people think, you’re bound to get some responses that will upset you.

Why have people booked rooms so far in advance? I didn’t even think hotels would take reservations before a year ahead unless its a resort or a convention being planned where rooms go quickly.

What a shame that the people you expect to be the most excited and supportive will sometimes be the most negative. 🙁
