Confessions

Recommended Posts

Can I just say that I love this thread! You girls are so wonderful with your insight, reassurance, and overall companionship!

 

 

 

Whether its the wedding or just my own neurotic tendencies getting worse, I've had the catastrophic thoughts too. We're leaving for Cancun is 3 weeks and our legal ceremony is next Thursday, and FI decided that he wanted to go on some male bonding week long hunting trip that required them to drive from California to Missouri and back again, returning home just two days before our legal. WTF!

So i confess that i sometimes get these horrible thoughts that something bad is going to happen to prevent FI and I from getting married - with less than 2 months to go these thoughts happen more frequently - then i have to remind myself that millions of ppl get married every year and nothing bad happens. I also just found out that FI has the same thoughts...

Confession - I'm freaking out. We leave in less than 2 weeks and I dont have everything done. I'm usually calm and collected, but my head is spinning and I cant concentrate on anything because there are too many lists in my head. Ahhhh.

 

And I skipped my 200 calorie soup and went to Chick-fil-A for lunch. Im supposed to be in bikini shape!

Ash i just saw your bd pics i really dont think a chik fil a sandwich once is gonna kill ya. your a little hotty dont worry about it. And freaking out is pretty common. Can you get rid of somethings on your list. either delegate them or just cut them out completely if they arent that important to you.

He ended up going and obviously nothing happened - but i feel like im going crazy!
I had this really bad, really bad! I think I felt like my love life was kind of grueling before and wouldnt it just be my luck that something will screw up my one chance at being happy, etc. And then on top of it I felt like a raging bitch for thinking about it that way, ie nobody better die and ruin my wedding!!! haha, that is an exaggeration, but not too far off!!!blush2.gifS&M.gif

OMG! FI and I have the same thoughts about stuff. For example if I am driving home in bad weather or something he has thoughts that he will lose me, that something will happen and gets upset. I have been doing this in the last week because my son is getting his tonsils out this week and although both my kids have been under before, I can't help thinking something is wrong this time and I should be listening to myself. I feel so silly about it.

My LONG list of confessions:

 

1. I am not happy with my FI proposal but I could never tell him. He said all the right things but it didn't take place anywhere really special, it didn't feel like he planned this great romantic thing that I had hoped for. embarrest.gif

 

2. My FI's daughter is 13 and I tried so hard to make things work with her but she just isn't affectionate/friendly etc. I know its not just me, she is like that with everyone but I get so frusterated! To make it worse she is in the moody, mouthy teen stage where everything is about her and it causes a lot of stress in our house. Sometimes I wish she lived with her mom because it would be easier on our relationship but I could never tell my FI that.

 

3. I am probably one of the very few girls on here that likes my FMIL! That itself is a confession! lol. But as hard as I try with my FBIL, he just will not warm up to me and its been 2 1/2 years. My FI moved to another state to be with me and I don't know if he is resentful of that or not. He is never mean, just doesn't really talk to me.

 

4. My brother and it wife are supposed to come to my DW but after several years of marriage and NOT wanting children they drop the bomb on me that NOW they are going to start trying to have kids and so if she gets pregnant they can't come. I'm not trying to be selfish but WTF? You never wanted kids before and now you are going to use that as an excuse? It also bothers me that my SIL isn't very warm to me, but we do get along, just wish we were better friends.

 

5. My Ex-husband is Satan. There are many days that I would like to back over him with my car, repeatedly. We always agreed to get along for the kids and we did really well at that until he met his current FI. She seems to think that we are not supposed to get along and likes to be a thorn in my ass. She is constently trying pick apart my parenting and acts like she is a better mother than me even though she has no children. I just want to yell at her "go have your own babies and leave mine alone!" voodoo.gif

i like my FMIL too! :)

 

since i'm kinda robbing the cradle (fiance is 9 years younger than me), his mom is literally not old enough to be my mother! i have older sisters and she is very close to their age (a little younger!), so she really feels more like a sister to me. don't get me wrong, she has her quirks as they all do, but really she is wonderful, very warm and has always made me feel part of the family.

I have two confessions for today

 

1.) There is a small part of me that will be so glad when this wedding is over! I feel like every extra penny that we have goes straight to something for the wedding and I am tired of it! We bought a house last September and now that the weather is getting nicer I want to spend some money re-doing the landscaping and stuff but I can't even think about that until this dang wedding is over!!!!!!!!

 

2.) I am so over the wedding diet! Mostly because I have been so busy at work that I really can't focus on working out as much as I would like to because I am always so dang tired at night and the last thing i want to do is go workout. I mean, the weight I am at right now is not any heavier (or lighter) than I usually am. FI likes me the way that I am...I just have it stuck in my head though that I need to lose 10 more lbs. for all the swimsuit wearing that is coming up....but right now I am just over it! BLAH!

 

 

wow...suprisingly I feel much better now wink.gif

    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
    • It's really tough when you put your heart and soul into planning your destination wedding and people aren't supportive for whatever reason. I think maybe letting people know how much it will cost for 2 weeks may be an issue -- a lot of people can't take that much time off and I"m guessing because it's such an extended period of time, the price may seem high to her. A good way of presenting a destination wedding celebration is to give rates based on 4 days, 3 nights -- which is typically what resorts will require for a group booking. This way, people will view it more of an extended weekend celebration and the time off as well as the costs becomes much more feasible to people. More likely, you'll have guests who will opt to stay longer and at that point you just let them know how much the extra cost will be. I suggest you talk to your best friend straight up about this and let her know how important it is for her to be there and find out what is holding her back. Communication is key!!
