Cousin getting married the same day as us!
Hello everyone, I'm not on here much so no one knows me, but I appreciate the chance to vent.
So, after lots of changing out minds about everything from the date of our wedding to the location, we finally settled on a date and booked a ceremony site. After all was said and done, we find out my cousin booked his wedding the same day.
I was upset for a few days, mostly because I hated putting my family through having to pick which wedding to go to and skip another. I knew I'd lose at least 1 set of grandparents because of it, but eventually I got over it, after many tears.
So I sent a Save-the-Date out (our wedding is in October) and the only person who said anything about it was my own sister! She basically accused me of stealing their day. She said they had that date reserved for over year, even though no one else in the family knew about it or they would have told me. We had been saying for over a month we were going to pick that date, and it just happens to already be our dating anniversary, which is why we picked it. She then said "it just makes it hard for the rest of us" like she has to choose between her own sister and a cousin that lives in another state....
Anyway, some time goes by without anyone talking about it, then the other day my mom came over to visit us and our 1-year old son. She was pressing and pressing and pressing us to elope! We said we already had the venue booked and sent out S-T-D's and she said she would pay us back for whatever we lose. We said WE DON'T WANT TO ELOPE, we want a beach wedding, which is what we booked, plus, I think it's more important for our son to see his parents get married! Why isn't anyone pushing them to elope? And shouldn't my mom be excited about her daughter's wedding? (I am the only sibling to be married!)
So that's my vent. I just feel like my wedding is no longer something to be exciting about, or look forward to. Like it's going to be this big issue until it's over, and the family is all torn up and throwing fits about it now. We already are planning to skip out on Easter because we just don't feel like being around anyone right now and hearing about what a mess it is. Thanks for reading.
