My mom brought up the topic of opening wedding gifts today. She started out saying that at weddings usually someone opens the gifts and then displays them and I just had this "oh god" moment... Thankfully she went on to say that it's not tasteful or what not and then said she had this great idea to have a gift opening party.
This is one of the things that I didn't think I'd have to worry about becuase I thought my mom is pretty tasteful when it comes to things. Anyway, I agreed to do it because I'll have to admit I've been pretty blunt with some of my rejections to her and I felt that she needs to have a great experience with this too. I kind of had an oh dear thought I realized that I have been kind of a bridezilla to her.
I guess bridezilla might be too harsh but not as accepting and welcoming to her ideas as I should be. I'm kind of controlling when it comes to things like this so, I'm learning that I just need to let go... Really in the grand scheme of things it really doesn't matter.
Anyway, I guess I'm not looking for advice on how to get out of it or anything but apparently I posted to vent and have a come to Jesus moment. Has anyone else had a gift opening party? Was it akward? I guess opening gifts at the shower wasn't as bad as I thought it would be...
