*sigh* What is wrong with some people? And these people being my family. So we were orginally getting married in my hometown in VA, which is straight country in the middle of nowhere. There's a banquet hall and some churches, no unique venues. So my FI and I were thinking that a banquet hall and a church is just not us, we want something unique and different. Thank God I had not sent out STD, but we have decided to change our venue to a great venue in Durham, NC, which is a hour away in my FI's hometown. And here comes the bitching (excuse my language) from my family. Nobody's driving there, why are y'all getting married there and my favorite it's tradition to get married in the bride's hometown. Well if that was the case my choices would be the backyard, a field, or the banquet hall. So all weekend I've heard the constant complaining and nagging from my family about the distance. You wanna talk distance I live 800 miles away in IL, yall better be glad I didn't say come here for my wedding. I mean really, it is about me sometimes. I'm not choosing venues on convenience to others. Oh and did I mention I got some slack about our date because it's the weekend before Thanksgiving, I mean really who's getting married here? At this moment I feel like eloping if I have to deal with this for the next 6 months. My dad told me plain and simple if they aren't putting up any money then they can just shut up. Then one of my BM tells me well I don't know if I can make that drive, it's a hour away!!! I just can't with these people, I have too much going on. I just had to get that off my chest because it has been bugging me for days now.
