Your FI is a good man.  It really means alot when they go out of their way to meet your emotional needs:)

I agree that your FI is a good man! 

I’ve been there with the granny situation….and it’s hard.  I always felt like granny came first, from vacations cut short to missed graduations.  I’m sad to say there was a low-point leading up to our wedding when I literally broke down.  In that moment I told my mom that her choosing to be with granny instead of being at the wedding (which was a possibility) would be a cut in our relationship I wasn’t sure would ever heal. I regret that moment a bit now, so I don’t have any great wisdom for you except I kinda know how it feels (screaming/yelling/crying fits and all) and you aren’t alone.  

And it sounds like you have a rockin FI!

You’ve got a good guy! How sweet.

Sorry your grandmother is being a jerk. Who doesn’t come to their grandchild’s wedding just because they don’t want to? What?

Your man is SOOOO sweet and thoughtful.  I just "aahhhh’d" out loud! 🙂  

As for your mom and granny – they have years of patterned behavior.  LET IT GO.  Yes, I know you want granny to be there for your wedding, but for whatever reason, she doesn’t want to be there.  Do you really want her to be there, knowing she doesn’t want to be?  She sounds like the type who would make the day more stressful for your mom.

I’m sorry you have a granny who isn’t more caring or compassionate – but try to be there for you  mom (by not giving her hard time about the garage sale and trying to pick up the slack for her while she’s tending to her mom).

to be honest i would be helping to pack up granny and send her off to her son in Arkansas now!

sorry she isnt as supportive as you hoped but she seems a bit of a drama queen so let her carry on the way she is and continue with your wonderful plans with the people that love and support you

flowers for your "happy negative 8 month anniversary"… hes a keeper!

I’d be buying Granny an airplane ticket.  Wouldn’t spot one for the son though.

And your FI rocks! What a sweetie to bring you flowers on the almost anniversary!!!
