Can I just say that I am over wedding planning already? Our wedding is still over a year away and I am over it. I was talking with my FW and was sharing with her something I had read that I didn't know about etiquette things and she just looks at me and goes "Well don't expect anyone to throw you a bridal shower" like first of all I would never expect that and second that was kind of hurtful as she knows I do not have any family or close friends near by for that kind of thing, so I just shrugged it off. Well then today I got told that our venue is dropping us for some dumb reason (boils down to they didn't realize we are same sex because my name is Bo and they assumes I was a man), so now our only venue options are about an hour away from where we live. Both my FW and my FMIL said "Oh well no one is going to come to a wedding then if it is that far away" and then they both proceeded to suggest out of state venues that were literally the same distance.
At this point I am just sick of planning this wedding. Her whole family just wants us to do it in her grandmas yard and order pizza hut and find a dress at Walmart and that isn't what I want at all. It is just really discouraging. Sorry for ranting I just needed to vent because no one else seems to understand.
