Last night FI and I had my friend and her husband over for dinner. Now I don't really like her husband and only tolerate him because of my friend. During dinner, we were talking about our wedding and her husband made a comment about how it is stupid to spend so much and he knows many people who did a big wedding and our now divorced. I was so upset that I just told him he needs to stop talking about the issue now. I'm very traditional and we are having a larger (130 guests) "whole nine yards" wedding. My parents are mostly funding the wedding and I just thought it was none of his business to bring money up (he is pretty blunt). My friend and he got married after knowing each other less than 1 year and when she was 6 months pregnant in a very small, home wedding. Completely nothing like what we're planning-church wedding, hotel ballroom reception.
My FI says its not a big deal that he can say what he wants, but we're going to do what we're planning and its his opinion. But I was so upset because the wedding is so important to me and I don't want anyone's commentary!
Whew I needed to vent!
