I actually read the whole thing, I am sorry you are so disappointed, and I understand to a certain extent that when you are spending $55000 that you are entitled to have some expectations of what will happen that you also must be realistic, people get pregnant, that happens, you cant get mad at them for that! I also definitely dont agree with putting yourself $15000 in debt, personally I would have taken the $40000 you said you paid in cash and made that my overall budget. Also when it comes to gifts, when people pay the expense of traveling to Hawaii and the expenses when they are there, I think them being there should be considered a gift! At the end of the day what means more, your friends and family seeing you get married or a set of new pots and pans??At the end of the day just remember that you are married to your best friend and that is all that matters
It's kinda normal to be a lil upset about mishaps or things that didn't go as planned. But you have managed to pick apart your whole wedding, from prewedding event through the reception. You come across as an entitled spoiled brat. For someone who went in debt for their wedding, I guess maybe you were more into the details of glitz, glam and all that money could buy that you totally missed out on what the day SHOULD have been about. Ever heard of "counting your blessings"?! You should give that a whirl. A bride I know almost lost her husband in a horrible car accident mere weeks after they were married. A co-worker of mine attended a funeral day for a man who died way too young and left behind a young wife and 3 young children. Life is short. It's way too damn short to be complaining about superficial things like what you did in this 4000 word post. Get over yourself.
