Things You Wish You Could Say, But You Dont & Wont

ok let me be the first to say that i am not one to bite my tongue when it comes to certain things...

a few things about my wedding & reception are of concern, but not anything that i'm going to spaz out about

the earlier topic of my uncle drinkin too much - well, i'm just going to have a talk with him personally and hope that will take care of it...

but are there any things-issues you'd love to say to anyone reagarding your day???


here are a few of mine:

1. dear uncle roland - please cut your hair - the mullett went out in the 90s

2. dear auntie baby (yes that's what we all call her) please dont put too much perfume on - everyone knows you love "poison" but really - we all dont want to smell you a mile away

3. dear cousin - please dont spark up minutes before the cermony in your car in the parking lot - yes we can all tell you just smoked out and i dont think your parents are gonna be happy about it... hey - whatevs - i'm not the d.e.a. but dont do it right before church!! and the aloitds dont work either!! save that sh!t for home away from me please!

4. dear bm - for the tenth time - please stop asking me if you should get another boob job - i dont care!!!!

5. dear "other" cousin - i know you're only 15 and you're a guy - but really - swimming laps in the morning does not count as your shower/bath!!

1. Dear Mom, please act like your normal self around your in-laws (my grandparents) You and Dad have been married for over 30 years, they actually like you!

2. Dear FIL, for goodness sake, SMILE when someone takes your picture!

3. Dear DH's friend Mark, please don't hit on my BMs. None of them are going home with you, so give up.

1. Dear Mom: please stop asking me how much this cost or that cost. It's not like you're paying for the wedding and our tastes are simply not the same.

2. Dear Uncle: Yes, its open bar, but please take it easy on the liquor and don't drink so much that you smother me with compliments and tell stories that no one can understand cause you're slurring your words.

3. Dear ALL FAMILY and Latino Friends: PLEASE show up on time. Please? Just this once, actually get there on time. I can't do the say-its-one-hour-before-so-you-show-up-early because the invites will only be printed once and not everyone is on Latino-time.

Dear Mom: please stop worrying so much about impressing people. You're ruining your relationship with me.

Dear Sister: please stop comparing my wedding to yours. Your first wedding was everything you wanted it to be. You seem to only remember wedding #2 which wasn't as extravagant.

Dear Mom, Please stop driving me insane. Listen to the conversation we have with the vendor and stop asking the same questions OVER and OVER again! You were there...why don't you know the answer? Also, please smile for real in the pictures. Where does that ridiculous fake smile come from anyway? Dear BM, This is not your wedding. You had yours and we heard about for three friggin years straight! Listen to my ideas once in a while and STOP cutting me off when I'm talking. How can you hear about our wedding when you never shut up! Dear Dad, Please don't have a heart attack when you hear what things cost. Dear FI, If you are "running a little late" for one more appointment, I'm going to kill you! I don't need more stress. Dear FI's grandpa, please wear dark colored socks not white with your suit! God that feels good to say!!! :)

Thanks beatie. I always thought my wedding would bring us closer together but instead has pushed us apart. It's been over 3 weeks since we've spoken. :(

HA - thanks beatie. I have enough going on with the FMIL.

This leads me to one more thing I wish I could say:

Dear FMIL: please stop talking to your dog at the same time you're talking to me! i can't tell who you're talking to!

To some of the male family members in FI family:

It is not cool to have long hair if you are going to look like you have bird making a nest on the top of your head!!
No!!! I don't think your braids will look cool with a tuxedo!!!

FMIL: Stop spending your money and then coming to us to bail you out!!!

FMIL husband: Stop complaining and get a real job!! Working stock at the supermarket making $200 a week is not enough to support a family!!

FI Father: How dare you be so mean to your only son? You don't call him, you don't let him know that you moved in with your daughter and disconnected your phone, You don't even know your new grandsons name!! Your only son is getting married and you will not even make an effort to be there for him!! Nothing new! You've never been there for him anyway.

FSILS: Stop being such bi****!!!!!! Who cares what you think. We love each other and are getting married anyway!! Take that!!

Wow!! I didn't know I had so much pent up anger!! That felt really good!!

dear uncle's wife: please dont be tacky and wear ALL your jewelry at the same time... yes we know he's rich - hello he's in our fam - yes we know you have a new benz every year; yes we know life is so hard as a middle-aged womam in florida... sh!t stop talking about yourself for once and just enjoy the silence!

dear daddy: stop talking! you drive me and everyone around you crazy and no one can ever tell you anything because you get pissed! the vendors dont like you and one already canceled on us because of they way you spoke to him.

dear mom: stop saying no! and stop saying this is going to be your way because you're paying. you're not the only one paying.

dear FI: please do something to help me! anything!!!

dear FIL: stop being so effing cheap!!! you have one son and he has one wedding!

Dear grandpa: thank you for my wedding dress. i will wear it proudly and remember you on my wedding day. i wish you could be with me in person, but being with me in memory is good enough. i love you.

Ooooh, good post!!

Dear FI's friend Ray: Please keep your pants on! I know you like to air out your cheeks but I've seen your butt more times than I've seen my own. Save the mooning for another time.

Dear Dad, Tom (FI's Dad) and Tanta (my Aunt): Please keep the drinking to a minimum. If you only have 3 drinks all night it's not going to kill you...you might actually remember something the following morning!

Dear Richard (FI's sister's husband): Please wear something other than your usual get-up (flip-flops, flannel shorts and a wife beater) and keep your mouth shut, nobody likes you!!

Dear Tom (FI's Dad): Please don't act like you did at your daughters wedding!! (He was so drunk he was crouching down behind the bushes and would pop up with his hands in the form of a gun and shoot at people as if he was back in war. He also changed from his slacks and dress shirt into a fishing T-shirt, shorts and white tennis shoes.)

Dear Mom and Aunt Judy: Get along dangit. Put that sh!t behind you and act like adults for a freaking day. You live 3,000 miles apart. Kiss and makeup, you'll never see each other again anyway.

Dear Mai (FI's GM's girlfriend): Please dress suitably and try to enjoy yourself. (She wore jeans and a clubbin top to FI's sisters wedding, she didn't talk to anyone and just sat there with her arms folded.)

Dear Taeao (good friend): Please don't feel like you HAVE to come to the wedding. Don't get me wrong, I would LOVE for you to be there for goodness woman, your baby is due 7 days beforehand. Don't stress...we'll go for lunch after the honeymoon!
