- Wedding: September 2014
Hi there everyone,
FH and I had been thinking about a wedding and now we are more tilted towards a planned elopment. It should be taking a lot of the stress away from me, but I am still finding things to stress out about.
1. My mom. I love my mom. She is a very good mom. Sure, she is a little overwhelming and overbearing at times. She would REALLY love to be there to see us get married. But then its like 10 other people… I just hate that I am taking that event away from her, but its my special day. She says its ok, but I can tell she is hurt a little by it. Have you heard of special things people do for immediate family after an elopment? I thought about making a short film, to document all of it. Or maybe a specific “for mom” photo album…. IDK.
2. The reception. I don’t want a wedding. I want everyone to get together and eat normal food and meet us for the first time as husband and wife. I want them to wear whatever they want and pop in and out as they please. I would also be interested in having visitors to our home. Or scheduled dinner dates, more of a one on one thing. But I just KNOW my family is going to make a huge to-do about it. It will be 50+ people right off the top. Do pizza parlors in chicago have banquet rooms. LOL.
Help me. What are some ideas, bees!
