I never thought the person who was going to be the most VEXING in getting this wedding together would be my father. He wants a big party, I do not. He has already called several times with venue suggestions. He really has no clue how much it’s going to cost to feed all the people in his head that he wants to invite. We had another conversation today and he indicated that he knew he was being selfish and he knew it was OUR wedding but weddings “are for everybody” and sometimes they “take on a life of their own.” WTF??
I have prepared a spreadsheet of all the venues I’ve either looked at in person or gotten quotes from and we are supposed to talk about it this weekend. I really need to get a venue booked so I can firm up a date. September is a popular wedding month in Texas because it’s not nearly as hot as July and August.
I am MOST grateful to have my daddy with me on this journey and I am happy he is so excited about me getting married. And he really cares for Myron a great deal as well. I love that. And I get that I am his only baby girl. But from a man who is NOT emo at all, this is totally unexpected.
There wasn’t really a point to this post. I just needed to vent. Hit the comments if you have suggestions on how to rein in a daddy-zilla. LOL!!!
