- Wedding: May 2016
I am newly engaged and am having a rough time emotionally, any advice would be amazing.
I love my fiancé so very very much. We had talked about possibly having a tiny city hall wedding or eloping, just the two of us, or an itybity ceremony with immediate family and close friends. I’ve never been the type of girl to “pinterest” things about weddings or plan mine, but I have dreamed about marrying the man of my dreams since I was a little girl.
After our engagement, I made a little board on Pinterest and began to add things with invites, little bouquets, great destinations for eloping (just kind of mind mapping). I made the board private, but shared it with him so that he could see it and post as well. Tonight I was showing him pins and he appeared very uninterested. When I asked if things were okay, he accused me of forgetting the whole life after the wedding, and that I needed to remember that it’s not about a wedding. He then said that it was overbearing.
This really hurt my feelings. I have never been one to be a “bridezilla” or obsess over an event, I was simply so excited about our engagement and about marrying the man I love. I feel pretty embarassed about it now and it hurt that he was so irritated by it. I thought he would love seeing a few ideas, especially ideas about the day we marry one another.
Any advice? Am I being overly sensitive? Or does this seem like a bigger issue?
