a little background....my FSIL informed us the other day that she is having some trouble in her marraige, and my FI and I think that she's throwing herself into the wedding to distract herself. She also has an over the top type of personality.
here's the problem...I have been feeling, and even more so the last week or so, that it is no longer my wedding. I have no control. No say so. She and her mother keep buying and making stuff, then sending me pictures. Today was for the pews. I flipped out on my FI (poor guy). Jake and I discussed the type of wedding we wanted...simple elegance. SIMPLE being the key word.
first we were simply going to borrow some pew bow from a friend of hers...but she couldn't find them
next we were simply going to make some blue bows and put a white rose bud in the center.
THEN they decided we needed tulle everywhere
THEN THEY decided to make kissing balls for every other pew.
What happened to the simple??? AND I only have a few cala lilies for alter flowers...adding all the kissing balls is going to introduce a whole new flower into the design that isn't seen ANYWHERE else. And don't get me started on her idea for the unity candles (which I told her flat out I would rather not do...her idea for the holder) but she bought the crap to make it regardless. UGHHHHH
