Wedding Updates pt. 1
Alright...So J and I were planning to have a small wedding in Atlanta with just immediate family next month. Turns out we can't do that. The reasons you ask? Well let me spin you a yarn.
Me: I was initially going to invite my parents, my grandmother (on my mom's side), my uncle (who is more like my dad then my actual dad), and my cousin (who is going to my be maid of honor). Well, my mama reminded me that I'd hurt my great grandmother's (again on her side) feelings if I didn't invite her to it. I'd also be hurting my other grandmother's (on my dad's side) feelings if she wasn't invited.
I wasn't inviting Grandma M (Dad's mom) because I'm closer to Grandma G than she is. My family is a bit dysfunctional in the fact that my Uncle and Grandma are considered part of my immediate family as they have always been there. Grandma M was more of a summer time grandma. That and she was always a bit...stricter than Grandma G.
Oh did I mention the fact that Grandma G coerced me into moving the small wedding in MS? Yeah, she's only willing to drive to Jackson. 0_0
J: His parents/siblings have a lot of stuff going on in June. His mother has to work the weekend of the ninth. His sister's birthday is that following weekend. His brother can't come to a wedding during the weekend of the 25th because he was going to Jackson for the 4th. We can't have it the first weekend in July because that's my mama's birthday weekend.
So far it looks like we'll either just go to the JoP or have it in July...which isn't looking good either.
This was supposed to be stress free I tell you!
