Wedding Politics

I’ve heard people complain about their weddings, the “adults” in my life that is. But I didn’t really understand until now. I’m going through planning a wedding and it’s mind boggling how much extra nonsense other family members manage to put into the wedding planning.

There have been a number of times throughout the process that my brain has thought, “Why didn’t I elope like I always wanted to?” I have to remind myself that eloping may be easier, but I want my family around me to celebrate. I wanted my friends to be there as well, but that option was taken out from under me. I should start at the beginning of the drama. But I don’t have the energy. This might be something I reflect back on for y’all in a few months instead.
