    She had the nerve...

    I couldn't help but LOL, drawing the parallel between your MIL and my dad. At the AHR, my dad and mom went up to the podium for what was SUPPOSED to be a 'Welcome to the family' speech for DH, but proceeded to take the liberty of thanking everyone individually who was involved in the wedding. Our turn was next, and I had nothing to say that dad hadn't already covered! lmao! Make sure she doesn't hi-jack your thank you speech!
  3. Hey Luli! I definitely suggest seeking out brides who are getting married at/around the same time as you and sharing a photographer! I managed to link up with another girl and, together, could afford to bring someone along! Managed to add one more bride to the mix later on as well! This was huge cost savings, plus the photog got three destination weddings to add to her portfolio! As I recall, the resort photographer was horribly overpriced and the photos would be unedited.

  6. Hey ladies! Just a heads up from a GRP bride... the Thai restaraunt IS beautiful and very romantic, but its not all that condusive to having a lot of people together. The best way to explain it is that is is sectioned off into platforms that hold maybe 4 tables. The sections are divided by a waist high wooden fence. Lol, that's not a great description, but hopefully you get my meaning. Unfortunately, I have no pictures, but if you are considering this an option, I would definitely request some photos from the wedding coordinator. Ask for pics of previous events held there, just to see what the set up is like. I just can't imagine how they would do it without splitting up your group...
  7. Sounds to me like your aunt is just using your cousins situation as an excuse. Likely, she has other reasons for not going, but doesn't want to disappoint you by making you feel like she can't make it a priority. So she has found an 'out' that doesn't place the responsibility directly on herself. People are often motivated by their emotions or lack thereof. And act in strange ways that can easily be misinterpreted or only seen for face value by those who fall victim to their actions. Recognize that you have no control over how others act/feel, but you do have control over how you accept/react to their actions/feelings. Sometimes you just have to step aside and choose not to be a part of someone's drama. I think this advice can be applied to your aunt as well as to the member who tore a strip off you earlier in the thread. As a human being you are entitled to feel. Your feelings are always valid, regardless of rationality. I think what you were looking for here was an outside perspective, not a chastizing. Focus on yourself, within this process, and not on how others are judging/dealing with it. You will have an amazing time, regardless. All that matters is that you and your groom get to the alter and say your vows. Everything else is just a story for the kids. Good luck and HAPPY planning!
