I'm getting married 3 weeks from tomorrow. The stress is starting to get to me, and after talking to my Mom this morning, I'm ready to throw something.
1) I requested Mom send me a photograph of myself when I was 3 dressed as a pumpkin for Halloween, to go with the photos I'm putting out of FI and I growing up (he was a pumpkin when he was 5, thought they'd be cute together). She found the photo, but tells me my Dad is trying to play sticky fingers with it, as he wants to create some sort of damn collage now.
2) Dad apparently wants this collage (that hasn't been put together) at my wedding. Said collage has no photos of FI. Umm, no. Previously, Dad set out a photo of my brother at brother's RD. There were no photos of the bride, and brother absolutely hates that picture- brother managed to get around it by saying that with everything going on, he didn't want anything to happen to the fragile frame (photo is over 30 yrs old), and lets put it away for safety.
3) Dad intends to make name tags- for my side of the family/the people he knows who are attending. I'm sorry, are we 6 and unable to walk up and say "Hi, I'm so and so, I'm friend/relative/whatever to bride/groom"? Plus, just for my side/his side- super rude. I'm already doing escort cards with table numbers. Snarky me wants to say to him "everyone will know who you are- you're escorting the bride up the aisle, AND I look just like you!"
4) Mom wants details on day of vehicle logistics. When I'm walking into work. She also wants to come to the salon the morning of and see how to unpin my hair so the curls will stay up, oh, and wash, dry, and style her hair AT THE SALON. Where she doesn't have an appointment. WTF. I told her I didn't know if that would be feasible.
It's not even 9 am on Friday, and I already need a drink....
