I apologize in advance. This is more of a rant than needing advice, but any advice is welcome!
My fiancée and I live across the US from where my parents and sister (MOH) live, and we're doing the wedding near them because we love the location. About 2 months ago, we saw a flutes/serving set that we loved and went with our double hearts theme that was really pretty, and in our style (not too plain, but not covered in gaudy fake diamonds either).
We picked up the set yesterday after getting the engraving done, so I called my family to give them an update for this week on what we've done for the wedding. I got chewed out by my sister, because apparently SHE had bought us a set (but in a design we didn't want) and was going to give it to us as her wedding gift.
While I appreciate the gesture, I feel she shouldn't have kept it as a "secret" gift. I feel she should have told me that she had bought it for us. So now she's pissy at me for buying it, and my mother agrees with her. We shouldn't be "buying things for ourselves for the wedding".
I am so frustrated right now. I've never done anything in a wedding except a reading when I was little, and attended maybe 3 total in my entire life. It's not like I KNOW anything about doing weddings (My sister watches all the TLC shows, so apparently she knows everything).
Thanks for letting me rant a bit!
