- Wedding: September 2011
You’re the only people I can turn to!
We got engaged in November. I’d been dreaming of being engaged so already had a rough guest list ready for Mr. Mellow and his mother. Three days after he popped the question, I gave Future Mother-In-Law her list and asked her to look it over and fill in current addresses. I still haven’t gotten it back.
I wouldn’t really mind, because I know I’m a little crazy, but today, I feel like I need it. It’s like a smoker who quit and is craving some nicotine. I can’t stop tapping my feet. Or clicking my pen. I’m driving everybody (especially myself) crazy!
Basically, I wanted our wedding to be about 150 people at most. Right now, we’re at 155 WITHOUT FMIL’s list. My parents’ list is 61 people, I have 48, and Mr. Mellow has 46. I’ve been the only one to cut my list, and now I feel so much regret. I know for sure that one couple who was cut just sent out an invitation to their 50-person wedding, and Mr. Mellow and I have been included. Insert guilt here. Assuming that FMIL’s list is 40 people, we’re still up to 195. Way. Too. Many!
Somebody please talk me off the ledge. Because right now, I’m questioning why Mr. Mellow has four people that I’ve never met on his list, why my mother has two (fourth) cousins on hers, and why in the world Future Mother-In-Law can’t bother to take time out of her completely unscheduled and boring day to open her address book. Smack me upside the head, tell me it will work out, and to quit being crazy. 🙂
