I feel the need to chime in here.
We are getting married next week in Cancun Mexico.
Selfish? Not wanting to stress out and pull your hair out planning a wedding? Selfish to not want to be married in the cold? Selfish to want to be totally catered to without having any pressure for wedding planning put on the family?
I AM SELFISH!!!
or WE are SELFISH!!!
It is OUR wedding, which celebrates the union of US. Yes he will become a part of the family but he technically isn't marrying them.
We figured that it would be wonderful if my parents could come, but we decided to do it regardless of whether or not it was just him and I on that beach with two borrowed witnesses. (oh and I am footing my MOH ticket fyi) and no we aren't rich.
What would be selfish in a bad way imo though is not giving friends and family enough advance notice to start putting some savings aside for the trip. We warned people a year in advance and sent out the invites in 8 months before the reserved date.
We are also holding a casual reception at our home for his family who didn't want to/couldn't go with cheese , crackers, and a bottle or two of bubbly for a toast.
If my friend was getting married in someplace like Maldives (I would love to go but cannot afford to) I would wish her the best and most happiness she could have as well as the most romantic and stress free wedding ever!!!
Selfish my a**!!!
I am blessed and fortunate that my family will be attending with my MOH who is a dear friend who I am excited as hell to have! Oh and a co-worker/friend is also coming.
I agree. It's one thing when people tell you they can't come for any number of reasons, and I'm totally cool with that. It's another when they put it on you and call you selfish. I would be happy for my friend, yeah, maybe a little sad that I couldn't go, but at the end of the day it's my friend who needs to be happy, not me haha.
Only a couple of friends tried to pin it on us and it hurt at the time, now I don't really care what they think. They can stay here and be bitter while I have the time of my life over in Mexico hahah! One of these people is still trying to talk other friends out of booking! Even though he already did once and cost them $400 when they didn't book with our group. He said he's not coming, so I don't even know why he's still trying to convince people not to come. That's what makes me angry.
