Oh, awesome – it’s not a big deal tome so I didn’t want to make a post to complain, but sometimes it’s nice to complain (especially with 10 days to go!!!)
My FSIL keeps trying to change plans to accomodate herself better. First, it was the bachelorette. She didn’t LIKE the hotel that another bridesmaid booked, so she wanted to book a different hotel for herself in a different neighborhood. She didn’t do that, but now she’s complaining about where we should go eat and generally trying to make everyone spend way more money than they need to.
Also, FSIL is the one who made arrangements for it to be in NYC – the one request I had was for it to NOT be in the city, but she did what she wanted to anyway, and now I’m stuck (so crowd-phobic, it’s bad enough the bachelorette is a big-ish group – I would have invited fewer people if I knew it was in the city!!!)
She also invited, then broke up with and uninvited, now got back together SORT OF and is trying to invite again, her boyfriend who she still isn’t sure if she’ll break up with.
WHATEVER, HE CAN COME; just stop trying to change our plans!!!
[ETA] Did I mentiong she’s not 16? She’s in her 30’s…. [/ETA]
FMIL promised to give us her tax return from last year toward our honeymoon, but I found out last week that she actually spent it on a vacation rental and some credit card bills. I didn’t know all this time – I thought she was saving it. ALL GREAT things to spend your money on, and I totally think it’s her money and she can do whatever she wants, but PLEASE don’t tell me you’ll give me something and then take it away!
I have some serious issues with people who do that.
Another bridesmaid, for some reason, keeps insiting on wearing white to my wedding. First it was her dress – I told everyone they could buy or re-use a little black dress. She had one, but it had a white sash. I said the dress was OK if she didn’t wear the sash, and she put up SUCH a stink about it that I had to say “no” to it. The other thing I told everyone was to wear silver shoes… guess what color she is wearing? White. Clunky, white mary janes – the kind you’d wear in middle school. I sort of just said “fuck it” and she can wear them… but I don’t know why she needed to make a big stink about wearing white.
It’s mostly these two bridesmaids that are giving me drama (FSIL and White Shoes), FMIL is fine (just a little confusing with money). I actually care less about this than it sounds – I am freaking TIRED and just want to be married already!
Last grievence: my right eye won’t stop twitching.
It started three days ago, probably from stress, and is REALLY annyoing.
