One of my close friends is getting married this year. I’m really happy for her.
So, on the weekend, the future bride, my friend and I went up to Barrie to visit our friends. We were gathered in the living room of my friend’s cousin’s place and we started to talk about the wedding. There was five of us, and one of our Barrie friends was giving the gears to my friend about her wedding. My friend has very specific ideas of how she wants her wedding. And, so she should, its her wedding, she can run around buck naked, karaoke her heart out all night or whatever she wants, its her day and she’ll have it the way she wants, you know? I don’t have any right to tell her how her wedding should be and neither does anyone else to be honest.
Well, the future bride was getting annoyed by our friends insistence that she do things a certain way for her wedding. The tone was “you have to!!!!”. Then my friends cousin got into it, telling the future bride that she should have a tiara of some sort as her head piece. It was getting rather dicey and I remained quiet for most of it, but when I saw how annoyed my friend was becoming, I came to her defense, as did my other friend, and we both told the two crazy women to take it down a notch.
And, this is why if I ever get married I’m eloping, having it at city hall or having it at an exotic location where it’ll be a super small wedding party. I mean, its annoying enough when you’re told what to do in general, but to be told how to conduct your wedding? Beyond annoying. I saw what my own brother went through to get married, no thanks. The less drama, the better.
My poor friend, if she isn’t a bridezilla now, she’ll turn into one just to shut these people up.
