Friendly people make me uncomfortable/Choral music gives me a headache

I've never liked the part of church where you greet everyone. Jordan's church is really really friendly and everyone there knows who Jordan is cause he works there and therefore everyone knows who I am and everyone wants to talk to me. I am the kind of person who gets to church right before it starts and leaves right afterward so that she misses all the beforehand and afterhand mingling. I am just not comfortable around a bunch of friendly people that I don't know. I am terrible at small talk, partially because I don't watch the news, and partially because I'm uncomfortable. The only bonus is that a lot of the small talk people have been making with me lately begins with "How're the wedding plans coming" and that is something I can (sorta) answer. Though my answer is usually: Fine, my new mother-in-law is taking care of most of it.

Today was Choir Sunday in church, which means that most of the service is musical. It started with a fun handbells piece, and I've always liked handbells, so that was fine. Then later, near the end, was something like a 12 movement Vivaldi's Gloria or something, and it was soooooooooooooo long. The first three movements were fine, especially the third which had a duet of two women who sounded like Disney birds singing in Cinderella or Alice in Wonderland, and I mean that in a good way. But shortly after that I started to feel a headache coming on again. This is why I never went to Wind Symphony or Kapelle concerts, even though I'm sure it hurt my friends' feeling sometimes. Most of the kind of music that is played/sung at those kind of events is too loud and all the high notes pierce through my head, and I end up getting a headache. It's like, if one of the songs was played by itself to me I would like it, but all 7 of them at once and I end up hating chorul concerts.

In other news, I am trying really hard to be thankful for my father being at my wedding and ignoring all my relatives who don't care enough to put a few hundred bucks on their credit cards to see me get married. As you can see, I'm succeeding wonderfully.
