Ok, I love my family. My family knows SO and I have been looking at rings as does his family (which is part of the reason they are coming to meet my family from half way across the world in a month). So mom recently asked me: "So what happens after he buys the ring but before he asks you? I mean do we just wait around then before we can talk about wedding stuff?" To which I replied, "Yes, that is exactly what it means." She didn't like that answer. Le, sigh.
My sister already told me that her husband needs to be in the wedding party too because she needs him to walk her down the aisle as my matron of honor. Le, sigh again. I just replied to that "no planning and no promises". What I wanted to say (and guess I might have to) is that, first of all, I am NOT telling SO who needs to be in his wedding party (that is his choice). Second of all, it is a friggen 10 second walk people! I'm actually really enjoying using the "no planning" line because I know my family (again, I love them...repeat, repeat, repeat) will go crazy once I'm engaged.
Anyone else have families more BSC about wedding planning than you? For those of you engaged/married, what did you do to mitigate it when you actually get engaged? For those of you not engaged, what advice might you have to mitigate the drama?
