I'm sure we've all been there but since you've gotten engaged what are some of the most cringe-worthy moments you've experienced? Here are a few of mine!
-A few weeks ago, I met my step-uncle's fiancée for the first time. My grandmother made a HUGE deal about me showing her my ring because "it's so beautiful!" I love the opportunity to show off my ring but I felt super uncomfortable because this girl is basically a stranger and my grandmother (her FMIL!) didn't mention her showing off her ring at all!
- My aunt asked what my wedding colors were because she wants to match the bridal party. She's also mentioned approximately 859,764 times that I was her MOH when I was 12 (because she was mad at my mom and was being spiteful, let's be honest,) so she should have a role in my wedding. Love ya, but no thanks!
-My dad's side of the family keeps asking which pastor is going to marry us. Things always get real awkward when we say "Oh, J's best friend's mom is our officiant!" We're not a religious couple and said from the beginning that we do not want a religious ceremony. We don't feel that a religious ceremony would be a true reflection of who we are, and we want our wedding day to be about US. That being said, we don't discuss religion with my family and the woman who is officiating is basically a second mom to FH.
