DISCLAIMER: I am PMSing and that means, super sensitive & emotional me is out.
A. So today grandma flew in from NY and she wanted to get down to wedding business. Honestly, I was in so much pain, I wanted to just lay in bed, eat all day, & have a non-bride day. Because I could barely move, my mom & aunt accompanied her to the decorator, the caterer, & reception site (she wanted to see for herself what exactly is going on with them since she's paying for a bulk of it). When she returned, she tried to get me to change my mind about having a photobooth. That got me to sit up cuz that is 1 thing I am SO excited about. She thinks it will insult the photographer & cause him to lose business (or have less photos) for the day. After some back & forth, she threw her hands up and let me get my way but she's still skeptical. And it really upset me bcuz my mom was all excited about it until my grandma says something, now she's on grandma's side and making it seem like I'm doing something so horrible by having the photobooth.
B. Then I have my aunt criticizing my natural hair (I'm transitioning so my natural hair is out & in a cute 'do but she doesn't like it). I did my best to ignore her cuz my hormones were on edge so if I would've opened my mouth, I would've either said somethin "not so nice" or just bust out crying.
C. Then another aunt calls up, making suggestions for the favors. Had to tell her "thanks but no thanks", especially since we ordered what we wanted already & we don't have extra time/money to change anything.
D. Earlier, I made the announcement to my wedding party that they were fired (I used nicer words btw). They were all just procrastinating with ordering their dresses & tuxes so to avoid unwanted stress, I just demoted them all to guests & kept the only 2 ppl that were considerate enough to be on point so now we have 1 attendant each and we're just fine with that (less money I have to spend on gifts lbvs). I don't wanna lose friends over this so I'm just gonna try to let it go & get over it.
E. Mom tells me that reception site requires guests to wear color bands to be allowed in the door & the site is not providng ppl to pass them out. That really set me off bcuz I don't remember that being discussed or even mentioned in the contract (I have a wedding book so I keep track of everything). I already sent out the invitations so can't provide them in there & we don't have RSVPs (long story) so no way to compile a guest list for a do a "name at the door" type thing. Plus, I still haven't decided what to do about ushers (I feel awkward having someone "working" while everyone else is enjoying themselves. Maybe I'm just being too "doormatish" about the issue, idk lol)
F. Then Mom harasses me about the "here comes the bride" sign & having it done. I hate having to remind her that, I am the bride, so I haven't forgotten about it & it will be done in time. And now she thinks we need a program for the reception. I'm not sure we do, I don't think it's common or necessary but I could be wrong.
G. And after showing mom the sketch the baker gave us of the cake, she makes snide comments. She basically didn't like it & questions whether it will be enough to feed everybody. It's a big 5 tier cake. I think that's enough to feed everybody. Plus, we're having a groom's cake. How much more cake does she want us to have??
Today was just not a good day for people to be all up in my face asking & demanding stuff. I was ready to set it off. Now that everybody has gone, I'm left with a huge headache. FI already heard my vent session so I decided to share it with ya'll. If you made it thru all that, you are truly thanked for reading my random, emotional, bridal mess lol smh. (P.S. sultryzulu don't be too harsh if u comment, but I kno u gonna crack me up wit whateva u say lol)
