So the wedding planning has been great thus far! Until we had to start making plans for the rehersal dinner which is my future in laws! Well they are divorced and have not spoke for 20 years! They have told me one thing about showers and such which my family has planned to attend and now the future in laws change there mind and decide that they want something else on another date! Sorry had to rant! They are driving me insane! They have completely decided to go a different more expensive route on the rehersal dinner now are complaining how much it will cost! When our first plan would have been much cheaper! They also dont see to want to send us on a honeymoon! Really saddens me cause I can see if hurts my FI! Especially when he see’s my parents throwing this huge wedding! AGGRAVATING!

Ugh, Father-In-Law drama sucks /: Sorry to hear that! Planning a wedding is frustrating and stressful enough without more unnecessary drama to add to it! Talk it out with FI–ultimately, its your guys’ wedding, not anyone else. Put your foot down and let them know when enough is enough! I wouldn’t let my Future In-Laws push me around; once they do that, they’ll never respect me /:

Aw, I’m sorry for the aggravation! Wedding events are really hard to plan…especially the rehearsal dinner since you aren’t really the one in charge. I had a hard time feeling like it was ok to suggest things, because I didn’t want to seem pushy.
Also, if it makes you feel better, I think many couples pay for their own honeymoon nowadays. I know that it is “traditional” that the groom’s family pays for the honeymoon…but I feel like that tradition died quite some time ago…I WISH someone was paying for ours!

Thanks! It sucks with them being divorced and still wanting to be equal parts! Eventually someone is going to get there feelings hurt! Apparently they will give $1000 each so I am now on the hunt for bargains!
