Just need to vent a bit... We attended a NYE party and saw some friends for the first time since getting engaged in Sept. So I knew there'd be questions and a little wedding talk but by the end of the night, I was really annoyed with one person. He is my FI's friend but I know him since we've spent a fair amount of time double dating.
He was at me all evening with questions and then would challenge any answer he got...
Examples include bossing me about the registry, saying the month we've chosen will be too hot (historically never above 70s), the location is too far, whether we should choose a band of DJ & how the wrong choice will ruin the night. The food, the bridal party, the hotel, I could go on & on. He tried to ask about my dress but I said I wouldn't discuss my dress in front of my FI. I knew I'd have trouble keeping my composure if he tried to diss my dress.
It's one thing to chat a bit, share some thoughts, etc, but he was being so agressive. My FI kept changning the subject but Mr. Mouth kept brining it back up, as he thought of other questions. I don't know if he thought he was being funny or only considering his own opinions and comfort (I suspect a combo of all 3) but it got old real fast.
Thank God I don't have a meddling MIL or anyone else to act like this. I might see this person once or twice between now and the wedding and I will not be discussing any details again. But I see the other posts from some girls who seem to deal with this nonsense throughout the whole planning process. My hat is off to them b/c I don't think I could deal!
