I hate hypocrites!!

Recommended Posts

People can be so unbelieveable . . .

 

When we first announced our wedding plans for Jamaica, future step mother in law had a cow. Constant criticism about how selfish it was, and how dare we expect people to use their vacation time for our wedding, and how dare we make people pay to go, etc. She even told me that fiancee's dad isn't sure he has enough vacation time for the wedding (which is an absolute lie - the man never takes vacation and probably has months and months accumulated in his vacation bank).

 

So . . . . I find out this week that my fiancee's brother's best friend is getting married and they are having a "destination wedding" in Key West. I use the quotes because the bride and groom already live in Florida. And fiancee's step mother and his dad are invited to the wedding. Don't you know they think it is the BEST thing and immediate made plans to book their room and flights to go to this wedding set for Valentines Day (so even less time to prep than our wedding scheduled for July 17th). For this weekend wedding it will cost them MORE than it will cost to go to Jamaica for a week for our wedding.

 

And to top it off, the people who are getting married in Key West make over $500,000.00 a year. My fiancee and I found out about this because we were informed to go look at their wedding website (meaning it was more fancy than ours). I can just see and hear it now . . . all the comparisons that will be made between their wedding in Key West and our wedding in Jamaica. And mind you, we are renting out five fully staffed beachfront private villas for our wedding, so it isn't like we are doing anything cheap.

 

You know, this destination wedding stuff really brings out the true colors in some people!

You know what?? Screw them! I know it hurts some what but you don't need negative people around you. If they want to constantly bring you down maybe it is better that they don't come! I just want to beat people like that. That makes me so mad I seriously could poke their eyes out pokestick.gif

Im sorry. People suck!! But im sorry that it has to be your future family.

 

I really think that we should write a destination wedding book. Chapter 3 will go something like this: PEOPLE SUCK

1. Family will make you mad

2. Brides maids will drop out last minute.

3. Grooms men......well they suck too.

4. Freinds will avoid you

the list goes on and on.

6: People will bring or ask to bring strangers
7: One of your BM's will get pregnant

Keep your eyes on the prize! Who cares what they think, they already had their wedding or will do theirs whoever they please. And you are doing just that! Once you start getting people booked, you'll see, all the negative comments will just bounce off!

 

I wish you strength and a shot of tequila!

HA HA I guess so! Luckily we just found out a week before the wedding so she hadn't gained much weight and the dress still fit. She was a bit upset she couldn't take advantage of the AI bar lol.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
