My Parents Are Not Coming
Well, my mother told me about a week ago that they are not coming to the vow renewal.
She said that the hotels are just too expensive in Palm Springs. But here is the thing, my parents make BANK!!!! They can easily afford it. They just don't want to pay. Plus I have a cousin that works for the Hilton and she can get a huge discount. My mother said she doesn't want to abuse her discount. WTF??? This is for your daughter's wedding. My cousin would not mind at all.
Here is the thing, DH and I eloped the first time around. They were never happy about that. Now that we are doing a vow renewal, they believe it is just a waste of time and money and not worth coming to.
I had my heart set on my father walking me down the aisle.
I guess whether it is a wedding or a vow renewal, it brings out the worst in family.
When she told me, i kept my composure. I just said "ok". After we left, I broke down in the car. I was devistated.
I am still hurt, but I figure there is nothing I can do to change their minds about this. And I refuse to beg and plead.
