It's everyone elses damn day

If I have to hear the phrase "It's your day" anymore I am gonna scream.

Here's just an example of where all you can find it.
  1. It's your day -The planning hell
  2. It's your day-with annoying music
  3. It's your day-it even gets its own bloody boquet
  4. It's your day-so you got to look hot
  5. It's your day-Even the damn cake is just yours
If there is one thing I have learned as I get deeper into wedding planning it's that it isn't your day (or your finacee's). It's just as much the parents/grandparents/siblings/friends/pets/doctors day. Everyone has something that they always wanted and if you want to keep the peace just humor them, then you damn well better have it.

It's a good idea to just ask people what their expectations are. Everyone has different traditions from "The Dollar Dance" (which considering where my fiancees family comes from I might have to look into) to a Unity candle. Not to mention all the things the Mothers always thought you just had to have. Personally I raw the line at a giant ice fountain.

I am almost tempted to get one of those stupid "Bride" baseball caps and put underneath it in marker "please bring your questions to anyone else."

Ah, you're giving in and admitting this isn't just about you and more... dangerous tactic.

I am still hanging on to my sign saying, "this is our thing, so fuck off!" slowly sinking, but not letting go...
