Am I being too sensitive?!
So I was talking to H2B about our wedding savings which are going well, we are keeping to our budget and saving appropriately and mentioned that I was looking forward to getting my earrings, necklace and bracelet to wear on our wedding day. He was shocked that I had to get new ones. Please let me just put something straight, I don't own any expensive show jewellery or anything that would be considered "bridal". I wear just small diamante studs from debenhams day to day, I have a beautiful links of london bracelet from him for Christmas last year and my engagement ring. I just wanted to go and treat myself to a new set spending no more than £150 and that's including my side tiara. He said I was adding things on unessesserily so I piped up that actually it is a little tradition for him to buy me a beautiful piece of jewellery from himself for me to wear on the wedding day to which he replied that I was demanding and that's ridiculous that we have to buy eachother something. Again, he knows I'm not an "expensive" person, I am not materialistic but I thought it would be lovely to receive something beautiful and special from him, my dream would be so receive something heart felt like a letter. I have started to put together a few ideas for a gift box for him, I recently booked a boudoir shoot which is costing me over £300, I was going to fill in one of those Groom Journals, get him a pair of groom socks and all the cheesy stuff but now I feel like a bit of a fool for sitting here working out what from my wages I can put into a secret savings account to pay off the total for the photoshoot etc. I wouldn't mind but we both work, everything in the relationship is 50/50 and we split everything although I am very lucky in the sense that he will treat me to the odd meal etc and I do the same for him every so often (not so much since saving for this wedding!). I was hurt that he called me demanding and I burst into tears, emotions are running high I lost my Grandad who was like a Dad to me last Monday and I thought to myself that my Gramps was the kind of man that WOULD of bought me somethign special for my wedding day from himself and my Nan to me and now I won't be getting anything, we went to bed without speaking last night and I just hate the silent treatment.
