This is a rant post/needing advice....
I have asked my BFF several times for her opinions about this or that. Her response to me is, 'Whatever you like'. I value her opinion that's why I asked her for help in the first place. I am not close to very many people, plus I don't want ten thousand different opinions. With my mom her opinion is given weather or not you want it.
On Sat I asked my BFF what her price range was & she told me that it was up to me & my FI. I asked her why style dress she liked, short sleeve, spaghetti strap, strapless, short, long, and all I got was it was up to the bride (me). I totally understand that I get final say so, but I wanted to know what her preferences were when shopping for dresses. I don't want something that is going to look hedious on her! I am not a fashion person what so ever! I'm a jeans & baggy T-shirt kinda girl. I had asked her opinion cuz she is wheelechair bound & don't want the possibility of a dress getting all caught up in her chair.
I just don't know what to do about her. My FI has told me that he will talk to her, but I don't want him to do that. I am stressing about little details here & there. I know that I shouldn't since I still have 13 months to go, but that's just my nature.... I stress over one detail & once I know that part I move on to the next.
My other rant happens to be with my mother.....
I have told her time & again that this wedding is going to be a simple affair, on the business casual side. My mom insists on my dad wearing either a suit or a sports coat. Mom is going to wear a dress. I have told her that she will be fine in either a pant suit or some slacks & a nice blouse. Heck my FI isn't wearing a suit or a sports coat. He is going to be in black jeans, a white dress shirt, boots, belt, & cowboy hat (the western look) which is what I want... When we went dress shopping last week & was asked what type of wedding it was going to be mom popped off before I had a chase to say ANYTHING she said Semi Formal. Oh this made me so MAD! It's like she didn't care what we had already decided, she has made up her mind how she wanted it from the second that we said we were getting married. She paid for the last one in full & this time she is only contributing a small monetary amount, which is totally helpful. I just feel like she is trying to run the show as she always does. This irritates me & when I get upset I end up looking like the bad guy. I just don't know what to do.... I think that my mom likes to make it look like she is better than everyone else, idk..
Oh mom also told me that she thinks since it's a wedding that FI needs to be in either a suit or a coat & I should wear white so that I look like a bride. This is mine & his second wedding.
Thanks for letting me rant..
Any ideas, help, suggestions, are more than welcome!
