- Wedding: June 2012
My family is very inactive in the wedding planning. I have no problem with that, I like it that way actually. Very hands off, if I go to my dad (really the only family) he says whatever makes you happy. Same with Fiance… until he gets around his family.
Due to the nature of our venue, we have to have our pictures at 10am. And our ceremony at 3:30pm. We’re getting married at a baseball field, with a game starting at 6:30, they’re letting general public in at 4:30. We were doing pictures from 1-2:30ish just whenever we finish. But because batting practice will be happening from 1-3 we can’t be anywhere near the field because of the risk of foul balls and the fact we could sue them if we got hit because our tickets wouldn’t be scanned in ergo us giving up the right to sue.
So we (FI, hair dresser, baseball staff, photog) discussed; agreed 10am would be okay for pictures, we’d then change out of our dresses/clothes to more casual, go our seperate ways, get brunch, meet back up at 2 to get the cupcakes set up.
Well we went home for mothers day (both moms have passed away, i got some candles for FI’s gma and aunts) and she started bitching she had to be there at 10 for pictures and didn’t have anything to do between 11-1, really 2 hours, go get some lunch. I just whatevered her.
Then we went to dinner with FI’s dad, and he asked what was going on with the wedding since he was really shitty when we got engaged, and said “well how much am I going to have to fork over for this?” (he hasn’t paid a penny; I haven’t asked and won’t). I was already in a bad mood, we went shopping for FI’s brothers clothes (because a 20 year old won’t get his own?) whatever. And Fiance paid for it, which is whatever, but now Fiance has to go back up there to pick up his pants because the CC used to pay for it has to be shown.
So now we’re at dinner (sorry I’m just really upset right now) and FI’s dad is asking about what to wear (it’s really casual, button up/polo shirt, dress pants) so we tell him that. Even though it says on our website, also, he won’t RSVP, he says he’ll just pick up whatever cupcake he wants when he gets there. And he asked what time he has to be there, Fiance said pictures are at 10, and his dad says, what time is the wedding? Fiance looked at me, and I proudly said 3:30 because IDGAF. And his dad said, and I quote, “What am I suppose to do between 11-3, you better have somewhere for me to take a nap”. I told him that I had a hotel room he was more than welcome to use since all of my stuff would be at the baseball field. And he said why do you all have a hotel room? YOu live in Richmond. I said because, he’s not suppose to see me, and I need somewhere to put the dress and get ready. And it turned into Fiance and his dad ganging up on me.
So now it’s me versus his whole family. And I’m completely alone in my corner.
