Guys, there's shit people tell you about wedding planning and there are just the "wtf?" moments. I've decided to comprise a list of some funny, some not so funny, but all very real things that have happened thus far while wedding planning:
You will swear up and down that you will always remind yourself, "your wedding day is not the most important day to most other people, just to you and your future spouse," and still catch yourself thinking, "are you kidding me, it's my wedding, why can't they come to XYZ event."
Your dad will see your fiancé doing the Cupid Shuffle at another wedding and inform you, with 100% sincerity, he wants that to be your father-daughter dance.
Your cousin, whom you've barely spoken to in the last 7 years because he's at that awkward "I'm too cool" age, will ask his grandpa, to ask your dad, to ask YOU if he can bring his girlfriend (whom you've met twice, but whose name you don't know, because he never properly introduced her to ANYONE at Christmas. twice.) to your wedding reception. But don't worry, you'll also come to learn he's cool with her "just sitting at the table. Not eating." OH, so you mean just drinking the booze M and I are paying for? Cool. <<pause>> NOT.
Your dad will inform you, on several occasions, he's "working on a playlist" for the wedding. This will include songs like, "Over the Rainbow" by Nat King Cole, and other assorted rat-pack songs. You accept the CD he burned for you (to presumably pass on to the DJ?.....), anyway. O_O.
You may or may not attempt to mail a rehearsal dinner invite with no invite actually inside the envelope, mail an invite with no address written on it, and mail an invite with no stamp. You will then question your sanity.
You'll get an RSVP card back with an additional child on there your fiancé forgot to tell you that his cousin had. Woops.
All those cousins and aunts and uncles that your mother and father-in-law convinced you "will never come"...? they're ALL COMING. Not that I'm upset about their presence, but it's doing a doozy on our #s. Oy.
You'll put approximately a $1.50 too much postage on an invite to Canada and your friend will laugh at you. At least it got there!
I'm sure there are more things I'm forgetting but these were some of the highlights. Never a dull day in wedding planning!
