Lately, I have been wondering if the wedding I am planning is really not the wedding for me.. Why you ask? I will tell you.. This dream is slowly drifting to a nightmare.. It started with FI sister wanting to do the food for the reception. At first I was excited and everything. My thought was this will save us money. As time and conversations went by I got mixed emotions about her being able to handle the number of guests we invited. First, it was the meat I chose. What meat I chose? Chicken. Then it was the stoves at the reception were going to take to long to cook the chicken and therefore, the chicken would not be ready to serve. So after all of this I decided to go with the reception hall package which includes table, chairs, linens, silverware, glassware, and food. I thought everything was good. Boy was I wrong. I got a call - FI sister.. She was wondering why I didn't call her to be in the wedding? Maybe I'm wrong but I thought your bridal party was suppose to be people you know and love not neccessaryily the FI sister. Anyway, my thought. So she goes and states that she is hurt because I didn't ask her and that she thought we were cool... One minute I'm doing the reception, the next I'm not.. Yada, yada.. To keep things kosher between myself, the FI and the sister.. I explained to her that I thought it would be better and efficient to let the reception hall handle everything for one price and you could be a guest and just come and enjoy the day. Of course, this was not good enough. She wants to be apart not because its all special but everybody else is in the wedding. Who is everybody else?? I tell.. FI 2 brothers, mother and father. Moving on, she agrees to be in the wedding. Now on to the dress. I have chosen a dress that compliments my dress.. To me.. She wants to add straps to her dress. My exact words were ok but make sure they are detactable so when we take pics you take them off. Mind you were are taking pics through out the ceremony.. But anyway.. The problem? I tell you.. This is just one example of people thinking its there wedding and not mind. At this point I do not want a full blown wedding. I just want to go and stand in front of the preacher say my vows and have the reception and forget about the rest.
