Oh my goodness. Well, goes to prove the fact that just b/c you're gay doesn't mean you know how to throw a party or have good taste.<sigh> Apparently the whole "it's MY day" wedding thing is not limited to bridezillas. The nephew and his domestic partner are getting legally married next April before the state automatically converts it to a marriage next June. That's cool. Gonna have a wedding. That's cool too.
"Quite frankly the day is about only Justin and me...no one else." All I did was tell them that instead of having a potluck reception (no, for real, that's the plan) that I and my niece (the one in Cali) would arrange for, and pay for catering, so it wasn't so tacky. The problem with catering, apparently, is the "need to accommodate everyone's individual tastes/dietary needs." Strange, I've had stuff catered/been to catered events, lots of times. Never really encountered the short order cook thing he's talking about. There is normally one or maybe two choices and maybe a veg/gluten free offering. Period. But, what do I know. They consider Mc Donald's fine dining so they obviously know better than I.
I even suggested an h'orderves and martini party...lots of choices, everyone gets accommodated, Nicole and I would do all the work and pay for everything...no stress on *their spacial day.* Still not acceptable.
Soooo I guess it's potluck, Schlitz in a can, and a cake from the supermarket. I'll tell you one thing for free, I am not buying the $300.00 dress ("mother of the groom") I was going to buy to walk him down the aisle (for real I'm doing that)...I'm going to Goodwill.
I take it that otherwise they're good people or you would not have wanted to put yourself out like that nor would you walk him down the aisle. So...at least their good people.
