M and I went to a wedding on Saturday and actually M was the best man of the groom. The bride and groom had the whole wedding planned down to the minute and actually had the bridesmaids and groomsmen organize the wedding.
M had invested lots of time and effort into this wedding and I kept getting angrier and angrier. I just didn't understand how someone could order their bridesmaids and groomsmen to organize the whole wedding. Furthermore, bride and groom spread out their wedding over three weekends - meaning they had stag and stagette one weekend, had their civil wedding the Saturday after and their church wedding the next Saturday.
I have a workaholic fiance and my weekends with him are what keeps me going through the week, not having a real weekend with him for three weekends during the summer really pissed me off, to be honest.
I ended up not attending the wedding itself - just the reception. I am very tired all the time right now and really have to conserve my energy, and knowing that I would have to stay up late, I rested in the afternoon and met up with M at the reception at dinner time.
I actually found something to eat, chatted with M and actually enjoyed myself - that is, until the live music started. The musician (who was way past his prime) started off with all the classic love songs, moved over to some really bad German folk type. The music was really loud as well, we were seated at the table that was the furthest away from the musician and it was still almost impossible to carry on a normal conversation with your seat neighbour. I am quite musical myself and have a good ear for music and I really hurt - so many wrong tunes.... and when he took out his saxophone and I really started to suffer.
But I have to be grateful as well because I now know what not to do at my wedding!
