So what if I'm having a DW and an AHR???!!
Posted 26 May 2010 - 02:36 AM
But already, I'm so tired of people asking me "so what's going on - you're having a DW AND a reception in town? Isn't that a little extreme? So why are we bothering with Mexico then? Can I just come to your reception in-town? Why are you guys planning so many things to show off? If you're thinking to legally get married in town, why go all they way to Mexico to pretend to get married?".
YES I AM HAVING BOTH. The large Chinese banquet our parents want with friends and family galore. And the intimate DW we wanted from the start.
Yes in terms of money, it's going to be a bit more, but our parents have offerred to pay for the AHR as a gift to us .... and its what they've alway pictured.
WHY ARE WE "BOTHERING....BOOOOTHERRRING?!?!?!?" how is someone supposed to answer this question? *sputter* *gobbsmacked*
ERRRGHH.......sibblings leaked out that we're thinking to legally get married before we head to Mexico to save us some hassle, but now it looking like people just think we want to do the DW to "show off".
PRETEND TO GET MARRIED?!?!?!
we're so offended with this whole "show off" thing - we're down to earth, normal people. from our closest friends and some family. its not like we're rich or anything, and they know that. but a DW was something we talked about long before he proposed.
we've been together for over 9 years, 10 by the end of this year. you'd think these people would be happy for us.
i'm feelin' sad, frustrated, annoyed and deflated.
thanks for the vent ladies....tomorrow is another day.

Your day is going to be special, enjoy the planning and try not to worry about them. I know that is way easier said than done but we are all here to listen if you need to vent some more.
Sending many good wishes your way!

i was so down and hurt by the turn of events - this is a great outlet to vent as everyone is going through or has gone through the ups & downs of (destination) wedding planning.
We will stop sharing any info regard the whole "legal" aspect of getting married with family & friends.
we told our family not to say anything from the start - but THAT didn't happen....we're going to talk to our family today, we haven't decided 100% on all the legal details, but it should be our decision to make.
....i'm sure there will be more bumps along the way....here's hoping that's the worst of it.....
i must bounce back!
thanks again - all the best to all you ladies

BTW... I learned to start keeping some of my planning to myself... from flowers to dresses everyone seems to have their own opinion!!
Good luck and enjoy planning your perfect day!!
