- Wedding: September 2013
I always thought when people got engaged and started planning their wedding it was suppose to be the happiest time of their lives. Whenever my friends were engaged and planning their weddings, especially if they asked me to be in their wedding, I always went out of my way to make sure they felt special. This is a really big life event, you should feel special! So, naturally, I always thought when it was my turn I would be happy and having the best experience planning what is going to be a huge event in my life.
From day one of planning this wedding it has been marked with unhappy events. First, I hired a friend of twleve years as my wedding planner. My fiance couldn’t stand him and felt he was taking advantage of my friendship (I agree with my fiance), so I had to fire him. Needless to say the friendship is no longer what it once was.
My soon to be sister in law told me and my fiance we couldn’t get married on the date we wanted because it was her birthday weekend.
My sister who is the Maid/Matron of Honor flipped out on me the day I picked out my wedding dress because she said I embarassed her and was being a bridezilla. I asked everyone else who was there if I was being rude because if I was I wanted to apoligize. They said I was being perfectly fine.
My mom had a mini stroke at a wedding shop the first time we went looking at bridesmaid dresses.
My father had a health scare resulting in another trip to the hospital the second time I was suppose to go with my bridesmaids to order their dresses. This was one month after my mom’s mini stroke.
My fiance wants his parents names put on the invitations, even though they are not paying for the wedding. His mom wants to have her full name listed on the invitation because she doesn’t like her husband so she doesn’t want it to read Mr.and Mrs. and their last name. So, my parents are upset their names are on the invites because they aren’t contributing fianancially to the wedding and it’s not traditionally how its done.
My sister, the Maid/Matron of Honor is complaining all of the time about financial stuff she’s having to worry about along with what she was planning for the bridal shower and bachelorette party. Now she’s having car problems and the trip will most likely be cancelled. Add insult to injury, I would have to help her reimburse the people who have already committed to going so they don’t lose out on a trip that isn’t going to happen.I don’t want to burden anyone financially just because I’m getting married. I even told her she doesn’t need to throw a bridal shower. I understand she can’t afford to do it, and it’s okay.
So, my question is…when does the fun start?
