REALY?!? Isn't ANYTHING good enough for you!?

So FMIL is a wonderful woman, she's just a CONTROL FREAK!  We want and have encouraged everyone to participate in the wedding process as much as possible, so this is partially our fault.  But it feels like EVERY decision we/I make, it's the wrong decision in her eyes.


The BM dresses were no good, she didn't like them long.  Too bad, I like long dresses, and most of my girls wanted their knees to be covered.


She didn't like that we were just serving pie for dessert.  Okay, fine.  You make cakes.


NOW, she thinks we need to register for more "accent" pieces and more things that we'll want later in life.  Well, TOO BAD!  We registered for the things that we NEED.  This wedding isn't about GIFTS, it's a celebration of LOVE.  If someone wants to buy us something unique, we welcome it with open arms, but I'm not going to put crap on my registry that I don't want or have any use for at this moment.  If I find a need something in 20 years, then I'll buy it in 20 years.  You can give me all the freaking advice you want to, but guess what?  I'm not YOU!  I'm ME.  Very utilitarian, very practical.  I hate clutter, and I don't want to ask for a bunch of crap that I'm going to have any use for.  PERIOD.

Good point.. Select what you need.. Please don't  clutter the house with unneeded items that'll just accumulate dust..
