It’s not fun anymore! There was one week of fun and excitement but very quickly it’s hit a stressful level.
Paul’s parents still want the 17 tables. So once we add tables for my parents’ and our friends, the total amount of guests would mean we would need to hold the wedding in a hotel which is really the last thing we want.
That sucks and we really don’t want a wedding where we don’t know 3 quarters of the guests.
Why must a Asian wedding be about having face and showing off?
Amelia once said that when planning a wedding, your in-laws will become your out-laws. That’s truly coming to pass in my case though I’m trying my best not to let it happen. I’m trying to ensure that everyone is happy but that’s proving to be extremely difficult especially since no party wants to compromise.
I can understand why Fruitcake and others have decided to just sign the official papers but not have any wedding at all. How nice if we could just sign the papers and either go get married in
My solution so far is to have a few weddings. Paul’s parent can host one. My dad will host one. And my mum and I will host one. Yes, that’s a total of 3 weddings. Its madness, I know, but I don’t want anyone to be unhappy, lose face or feel like they are losing out. It’s a wedding! It’s a celebration and everyone should be happy!
Thank goodness tomorrow is a holiday. Our day is choc-a-block. We have meetings with a photographer, a wedding planner, another wedding planner, a bridal shop and the Carcosa Seri Negara.
Not to mention Saatchi is going to Krabi on Thursday so I’ve even more planning and coordination to do to add to my stress levels.
Sigh. Pray for my sanity.
