Tequilla is a good substitute for wine 🙂 You need it right now!

I got an email from FMIL on Monday (19 days before the wedding) that said “Subject, another wedding guest

Mr and Mrs. so and so will be in town and have requested to be invited”

WTH!!!!?? I sent the invitations out the first week of August, and the RSVP date was September 2nd…

I made FI deal with it, because I made a deal with myself that 21 days before the wedding I was done stressing and FI could handle anything that comes up.

Why do families get so freakin crazy when people get married?

Weddings tend to bring out the craziness in families. I just spent three hours today trying to explain to a MOB why she can wear this dress to her daughter’s wedding:

When her daughter will be wearing this dress:

She thought as long as she bought her dress in light gold she was fine. She planned to wear a wedding dress and thought she was fineFrown

I am sorry your FMIL is driving you crazy. All mothers seem to go crazy when their kids get married. Let FI handle her. I always tell mine “Your mother, your problem.”

@ENarcy:  Clearly these are people she was inviting to show off to!  And now she doesn’t want them to think they are special because they can sit with her.  What a cow.  I hope you keep the seating plan and she sits with her god damn +2s.

Oh, that’s so frustrating! We’ve gone back and forth on several family friends and who should be invited. We took some people off the list, but then two days ago my parents thought of somebody new that we should invite.But where do you put family friends who don’t necessarily know each other? I feel your pain.

At least you could tell your FMIL that your parents were in the same situation. Hopefully they will be so excited or distracted on your wedding day that they don’t freak out about it. Maybe they won’t spend much time at their table?
