On Saturday night, A and I attended my friends engagement party. It was a great night with yummy food and some old school tunes.
I wore this dress from Princess Polly,
skinny dark brown belt and brown Novo wedges.
A and I didn't know anyone except the couple and her parents, so when we weren't making small talk with other guests, I amused myself with the decorations. The names of the couple celebrating are Chris and Christine, so they had these large C's on the table.
But are they only C's? What else could they be useful for???
A nipple ring?
A bag holder?
Unfortunately, the bliss of celebrating with the engagement of this couple did not last all weekend, as we had a family "discussion" on Sunday about my last post.
I read all of the advice you girls gave me and I tried to take it on board, even when I felt like whatever I said wasn't good enough. I remained calm and collected and I can quite happily say I did not say anything I am embarrassed of or will regret later. I merely stated how I felt and why I felt that way.
Unfortunately, I can't say the same for everyone, as one person even remarked "if the venue is so important to you, maybe you should reconsider why you're even getting married". - HARSH!! I sat there gobsmacked, while A did all he could to defend our relationship and me.
I hate this situation, I wish this never happened. I hate that he has to stick up for me to them and I hate that it feels like "us and them". I hate it all and I just wish they could be like my blog readers and just get it. Just get why a bride dreams of a venue. They haven't committed any money yet, so in my mind, if situations were reversed, I wouldn't even hesitate to go elsewhere.
Argghhh it is not even about the venue anymore unfortunately :(
It has become a matter of whose needs/wants are more important and of course I am the callus, cold hearted one, because theirs involves a baby! :(
This holiday can't come soon enough!!!
