When I told my mother we were engaged, she was delighted. She also informed me that my wedding would not be for us, but for all the people who have supported us. We were very blessed that both our families have been saving up for a wedding and would be paying for it.
That said, I am an introvert. I enjoy the company of others for a short time, and am able to manage just fine at work. I love coming home to our quiet little apartment and going for a run. This helps me recharge and be social again.
His parents have been with us for a week and I am in almost in tears from lack of alone time. I don't know how I am going to handle a wedding that will be 80 +.
My goal is to behave graciously (to each and every guest) without losing my sanity. If anybody has any tips for me, it would be greatly appreciated.
