Confessions

Recommended Posts

Confession #1 - I cannot seem to get serious about weight lose and toning up.  I do not have a super big amount to lose (9 lbs) but I have seriously untoned jelly arms and I am wearing a stapless dress.  My wedding is 2 1/2 months away, why can't I get serious about this.  If I don't do something soon, I will hate my wedding pictures and how I look in them and have only myself to blame.

 

Confession #2 - I hate that people are not sending in their RSVP cards.  They are pre-addressed and stamped.  How can you be that lazy.  I mean people that I know have booked their tickets yet they can't send back the damn RSVP card.  I read enough on this site to expect this but it still makes me mad.  A lot of effort went into the invites, send back the damn card.

 

Confession #3 - I am not happy with the shower that is being planned for me.  My FMIL suggested that they just do a joint shower for both sides of the family rather than 2 separate showers which seemed like a good idea to me.  However, my FMIL is supposed to be organizing it with my MOH but she doesn't listen to any of my MOH's suggestions and my MOH knows me best and is suggesting things I would totally love.  I am going to end up with a totally lame shower but want can I say.  If I say anything, I will sound ungrateful.  I tried subtly to say on the weekend how my MOH had told me that she wanted to do x at the shower and how great I thought that sounded and my FMIL's response was no, we're not doing that. Urghh, she hasn't even asked me once what I want.

 

Sorry that is a lot of confessions.

Cindy I am with you for your first and second confession. I needed to lose 23 pounds for the wedding and I waited till 2 months ago to start working out and it has been a slow start. I am only down 8 lbs, and I haven’t started strength training to tone up my arms (strapless dress too). And I know have 2 and 1/2 months left to lose 15lbs. I really wish I got my butt in gear sooner but certain foods are so tempting!

 

And my RSVP date was 6/30/10 and I only got ½ the self addressed stamped cards back.

 

 

 

Confession: I was supposed to either do yard work or work out last night. I did neither and went out drinking. I now have a hangover and it is making work miserable. And I feel guilty for drinking and eating to much last night and blowing my diet for the week.

I wish that every single day, so I guess we both share that.

 

My confession would be that I resent the time my FI spends with other people when he comes to town.  

 

The second is I worry about EVERYTHING but I don't tell anyone!

Confession-

I think I may have picked the 2 lamest bridesmaids on the planet.

1 is FSIL who didn't even want to come to my wedding shower let alone help plan it (thank god for my Aunt because she had to plan it all). The only reason she will be at the wedding is because FFIL is paying for her to go.

2. my bff since we were kids. I went to her DW last year, paid for the trip, the dress everything, also planned her bachelorette and shower and she didn't even get the bridesmaids a thank you gift, but they got the groomsmen something. She just couldn't be bothered to put in the effort. I sent out the invites but no deposit yet, and I have a suspicion that she won't make it to my wedding (even though it's less expensive than what we paid to go to hers).

 

Also just found out that FFIL is paying for his girlfriends daughter's entire wedding and hasn't offered to help at all with ours.

 

Sorry to rant on like this, just seriously stressing me out!

Trust me, I feel the same.  My FI makes a TON more then me, so he's paying pretty much for the entire thing.   The only thing I'm really buying is the wedding package at the resort, and what I'm going to wear and some OOT stuff, but if it wasn't for him there would BE no wedding!!!

Sometimes I resent being the "go to person" for my entire family....it's emotionally draining sometimes...it was not a job I asked for but was giving to me!

I also wish our families could help more with the wedding - FMIL keeps asking what she could do to help; cut a d*mn check!

In accordance, I sometrimes resent our friends who's parents throw them lavish weddings.

 

I'm also a constant worrier/bottler.

 

I almost revoked the BM status of all of my BMs more than once during this engagement.

 

My FSIL is a self-absorbed, immature PITA who expects everyone and everything to work for her....and FI's family does.

 

Great therapy!!!!

I wish FI didn't have to work such long hours...he works part time and is in school full time. I know it's helping with us financially, but I am starting to miss spending time with him :(

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
