With the holidays just passing, I received the most brazen confrontation about our wedding party and I'm kind of pissed about it.
I had a moment alone with my aunt (my dad's sister) and she asked my why her granddaughter (my second cousin) wasn't in my wedding party. Then she proceeded to confront me and tell me that her granddaughter will probably be very disappointed that she's not in our wedding....but she's not going to say anything about it to anyone. I just kind of sat there and realized there were 2 ways I could handle it. The way we all want to handle crap like this and tell people to butt out or take the higher road and smooth out any differences of opinion. Even though I was seething about this, I took the higher road and explained that it was a matter of money that we choose to have a smaller bridal party.
I should really consider the source. This is the same woman that said that if I were to invite her sister (my other aunt) she wouldn't attend the wedding nor would any of my other family members. So in essence she is telling me who I can and can not invite.
The more I think about it the madder I get!!! I mean, really...how rude!!
Does anyone elses family feel it's their place to plan your wedding for you too?
