When a guy proposes to a girl and she says "yes"... that's actually the easiest part.
Because when it comes to wedding planning, it doesn't just involve only the bride and the groom and what they want. But it also makes up of each side's parents wishes. And in my opinion, to every couple, there is usually one side that will provide the headaches- in my case, I thought it was mine.
Don't even start with the wedding planning, talking about the registration to counselling and to church wedding etc. As I've blogged previously HERE, Mr. C is a Catholic and I, a Protestant. See, if it was left to him and I to SOLELY decide, I just have to war with him to get my way.
BUT if my parents and his come into the picture, I have my work cut out for me and I foresee a multitude of headaches awaiting to assail my poor mental mind.
My father said to make a small wedding reception- just a table or two and be done with it. My mothers says not to marry in a Catholic Church and my father says he won't walk me down the aisle because his heart won't be able to take the stress. Plus, he doesn't want to give me away.
To me, meeting half point will be marrying in an Anglican Church or simply have a garden wedding. Case solved. But nope, I think my future-in-laws now want the wedding to be held in a Catholic church by their priest which isn't exactly something I don't feel ecstatic about.
If Mr. C was a super devout and faithful Catholic, I won't argue about following who to which church. Where he is now, it'll be the blind leading the blind.
So, boys and girls, when your time comes, when your Romeo/ Prince Charming pops the question, be happy. Take a deep breathe and remember what is in store for you- your parents and the in-laws!
