I got married last May, and had a wonderful, great day. We had an intimate wedding, so about 50 guests.
Planning was a bit difficult as my parents are very traditional, while I am not as much.
We got the wedding video friends made for us as a present this past weekend. I was listening to the video last night, and in one of the files, during the first dance, I can hear my mom.
Our wedding had no MC, it was more casual, but we did have a first dance planned, as well as a mother-son, and father-daughter song right after. I didn't have any plans for the first dance, besides opening the dance floor, dancing with DH. Well on the video, about 2 minutes into the song, my father in law decides to join us on the dance floor and also invites my parents to come dance with us. I thought it was a great way to end the song - both sets of parents and us on the dance floor. Well I can hear my mom saying to my father in law, "no we can't go it's their song, it's their dance etc". Then she gets up with my dad starts dancing (reluctantly), but I can hear her complaining to my dad while they are dancing about how father in law broke our dance etc and how annoying that was. SHe was saying it was "our" moment...I don't agree with any of that and honestly was so happy to have someone else there with us for the rest of the song - it made for great pictures.
I'm so dissapointed that my mom just couldn't see how happy and go with the flow I was on my day, and I could hear her complaining....on my wedding day. =(
Sorry for the vent, I'm just a bit dissapointed.
