    Hi ladies!

    Don't you wish everyone could be as excited about your wedding as you are? I know I am super excited about my wedding, and that some other people are as well, but man, those few that whine and complain really set the whole thing off, don't they?? lol...

    Just wanted to post this for all those who need to commiserate about those lousy people in thier lives who just can't seem to be happy for you.

    So here's a shout-out to all of us!!

    I am super excited for ALL of YOUR weddings!!!!! Hooray & congrats everyone!!! We're finally getting married
    21 people + Bride & Groom booked!!

        Thanks!! I totally understand what you mean. This site is a godsend, because everyone is so excited for you!!

        Doing the planning also made me realize how little I have paid attention to other peoples weddings. I have gone to one since I started, and I paid attention to EVERYTHING. So- I've come to terms with the fact that not everyone will notice or appreciate everything I put into mine, unfortunately! But from now on... I will get excited with every bride!!! Congrats to us!

          LadyTrunck, couldn't agree more this site is truly a Godsend! It's much better to come on here with issues where everyone is so excited about everyone's wedding and supportive instead of listening to those who whine elsewhere.

            I am there with ya. No one seems to care besides FI and myself! It's really making me sad! All I want is for someone to listen! I have so many ideas that I just need to talk out. Thank goodness for this board!

              I completely agree..this is the only place I feel ok to share every aspect of my planning because everyone is genuinely happy for everyone and I LOVE LOVE LOVE this site and am obsessed and addicted to it..BUT at the same time makes me so sad that we have to find a forum and speak to people we dont know to share our excitment because people that are sometimes the closest to us arent as happy as people dont even know us are? just makes you think...........

                I'm so glad we have this site! When I see great ideas on here and start telling people about them, they just aren't as excited. I could talk about DW all day long!!!!!

                  I don't know what I would do without this site!! I mean even my own mother and FMIL aren't really that excited about the DW - and those are the 2 people that you would expect to be ALL OVER the planning, right? I've accepted the fact that neither of them are 100% thrilled with us having a DW because it's not traditional and because most of our family is going to miss out on this special day, but you'd think they'd at least show a little excitement - geez. I have a feeling that as the big day gets closer and they actually start thinking about the vacation and how much fun we'll all have, they'll eventually get more excited, but for right now it kinda sucks.

                  And for all of you other brides who don't have anyone to share in your excitement - I am EXCITED for all of you!!!! All of our DW weddings are going to be WAY more fun than a traditional wedding whether we have people that share our excitement or not!!!

                    When we announced our revised plans to include our children and our parents pauls mum and dad said we are not sure because of the cat.!!!! WTF this cat is a real witches cat that hides under a pile of blankets never goes out and would attack you for walking past it.I didnt say anything that evening not even to Paul who didnt say anything.The next morning i call my mum who says do they do a direct flight from here (ireland)i dont think they do?your dad wont fly anywhere unless they fly from Shannon airport.WTF.Unfortunatly my mum got the wroth of my tongue when i told her pauls mum and dads comments and then hers so the best thing i could do was to just take Pauls two girls that were thrilled at being bridesmaids.Or she leave him and come by herself.The conversation dried up and she said ill ask him.His response was if she wants us there i guesss we better go.I lovvvvvvee my dad.As for Pauls parents a good male frend of mine bought up the wedding to Eddie saying how cool it was. He mentioned he was concerned about the cat and my friend told him put it in the cattery you wouldnt want to miss your only sons wedding would you !!!.In fact my male friend has even said hell come to wedding fairs with me.Hes married aswell,hes got my back.He was the guy that introduced us when we were both newly on our own.Im sure his wedding speech will be interesting.Its so cool to get my daily wedding fix with such a friendly group of brides to be xx thanks to all of you and especially Tammy and all the mods,go girls xxx

                      I could talk about my wedding all day, and I can't believe everyone else doesn't want to, too! I was waiting while my car got inspected this morning, and I was reading "In Style Weddings", and I really wanted the lady sitting across from me to ask if I'm getting married. My wedding is 8 months away and I'm afraid I'm going to drive my friends crazy with all the wedding talk! Thank goodness for this site!
