I'm here for some " don't give a shit what anyone thinks and says pep talk". Lol

 

I'm really kinda down tonight.

 

We just came back from my FI sisters house where some of his family were gathered . For shits and giggles I informally handed his sister and dad the STD I just got done.

 

And so it begins...this is what I got

 

Odd look from his sister and 17 yr old niece . " Halloween ? Your wedding is gonna be on Halloween ? Really? " arched eye brows!

 

From niece " great guess I can't come ill just have started college"

 

From sister and niece - it's a Friday?

 

From his father- why can't you just do it in Miami ? If its the money ill give you money.

 

Are you inviting so and so and so and so and sound so?

 

" you know we are. Tight family why would you do it in YOUR country?

 

From his father - well at least we can book your uncles time share and we can all stay there and just go to your wedding.

 

 

I was getting so pissed and its only the first STD

 

Ohhhh and I said to his sister. Please it's not like anyone actually considers Halloween a pagan holiday. To which she raised her hand as in to say " I do"

 

 

Now add to that

 

None of my so called best friends have even called me to ask about the wedding since I told them I was engaged over a month ago.

My fathers " how much is this shindig gonna cost comment"

My moms " your not wearing white re you?" Comment

 

And the fact that I'd rather elope As it is , I feel totally deflated.

 

This is supposed to be a happy time in my life and instead I just wanna cry. Mainly because I always see in the movies and on tv all these people with tons of support.

 

Let me clarify that everyone Is happy for us and want us to get married. I just feel super lonely in the process.

I wasn't around last night and I see you got plenty of pep talks and I agree with all of the other girls.  I am sorry you had to endure all that crap, because that's what it is. This is YOUR wedding (well and your FI).  Whatever happend to "if you have nothing nice to say don't say anything at all".  Halloween isn't a real Holiday anyway, it's not like Christmas.  Also, a Friday works well for DW because if you do it Saturday and people are hungover they're probably hopping on a plane Sunday hungover. Regardless it's a vacation where they get to see someone they love get married, what could be bad about that?!?!?!

 

Moral of the story, no matter what you do you won't please everyone so just make sure you guys are pleasing yourselves!

Okay, this is coming from a mother of the bride...I am getting the same response from a lot of people about my daughters DW and I just tell people that I think it's a great idea and that this is a great way to weed out the folks that would only be there because they feel obligated or are out for a free meal and drinks! You should see the looks on their faces! It totally shuts them up! I go on to say that we don't want anyone to feel obligated to go and that we only want the people there that truley want to be there. My daughter wants to be surrounded by those she loves and love her....not a bunch of people who didn't have anything better to do that night! Sorry if I sound bitchy, but I'm all for telling the truth...if they don't like it, oh well.

You guys are all awesome. :0) I'm up! Heading to Michaels to figure out how I can liven up my STD envelopes. Plus I need to add magnetic tape to the back of the cards so ppl can tick them to fridge. Gotta keep it moving! May I suggest everyone that doesn't have a picture attached to their names perhaps put one up if they're comfortable soon. It's nice to have a face to the new friends/ therapists/ wedding advisors. 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.
