Aside from kissing and hugging and all that other emotional relationship crap that guys just decide is okay at any point in time (I’ll admit I’d love to have one of those cute couple moments that make it to cameras any day), weddings are another one of those things that just seem really awkward to me.
If you have divorced parents and a dysfunctional family like I do, the wedding invitations and reception and whatever else requiring them to get together would overall be way too stressful for me to deal with. Then there would be my groom’s side of the family as well, and since I lack even a boyfriend at the moment, I can’t even make an appropriate example on this topic as far as how the two families would interact with each other and whether they could coexist in the same places together. My mom didn’t go to my birthday party last year because my dad and some of his side of the family was there, but her excuse was that she wasn’t feeling well. I didn’t lie for her, but I didn’t “rat” her out, either. No one asked but Mimi and Bebe and Shane. Carrie and Patrick got to come over, though, and Patrick enjoyed playing with two of my cousins (Charan’s grandchildren). Carrie was jealous of Ruby, my youngest sister. xD
Who wants to make out in front of fifty or more people? Or anyone, really, even if it is a celebration/ceremony/thing? Yeah, not me. I’m the type of person who analyzes pretty much everything, too, so I’m just curious… You do get to rehearse that part, right? And the wedding garter… I don’t want our families watching him feel me up, OMG. That’s embarrassing. -.-
And then you’ve got this huge dress that is most likely going to be in the way of whatever it is that you end up doing after you get married at the alter… Isn’t there a party thing afterward? And if so, then why do the people always drive away in movies to go wherever for the honeymoon in a vehicle that says something along the lines of “JUST MARRIED”? Because the party/thing IS where the groom removes the wedding garter, correct?
I don’t know all that much about weddings. I don’t even know how you’re actually supposed to act. I’m not exactly a people person, people annoy me and drive me insane, and parties? Yeah, they definitely aren’t my thing.
And I’m guessing someone is just expected to clean stuff up for you after the wedding?
I think this little rant just made me sound really prudish.
