    @sweetdee522:  I wouldn’t change a thing for this broad…I get that your FI is her favorite and she is, in no uncertain terms a soul eating harpie…if it were me, I would still have everything I wanted and add a little side action betting pool regarding grandma’s behavior over the weekend, winner takes all.

    # of times she sits in some other dude’s lap

    # of time she makes someone cry

    # of drinks consumed….

    you get the idea.  Anyway, if your watching her because you have money riding on it, it won’t be upsetting, and if you involve your family, that pool could get pretty big!  High stakes betting is always an answer when dealing with an emotionally unstable mess of a person at your wedding…got anyone good with numbers?  Your going to need a bookie for all that action.

    Don’t change your wedding for her! Just warn everyone about how she can be and try to ignore her as much as possible.

    @sweetdee522:  We did the same thing when my grandfather got remarried, she was awful, and I think my cousin won over $500….we had a count for number of times her maid of honor tried to show someone her boob job…mind you, these women were both 67!

    TO Nona99: Oh my gosh… spurting out tea on my computer here…

    This is by far one of the best “switch up” the bad news for good… make lemonade out of lemons post that I’ve EVER read here on WBee for a Bride beside herself with anguish…

    NONA I too could (( HUG )) you

    Your idea might not etiquettely or politically correct, but it is truly brilliant

    If someone is going to be a train-wreck anyhow… ya might as well sell tickets !!

    TO sweetdee522 and if you can’t bring yourself to do something so “vulgar” yourself (lets face it here… this is pretty RUDE behaviour and a sh!t-storm waiting to happen if Gramma should get wind)

    There is always the prospect of Eloping as you say… nothing wrong with an Elopement to a nice Destination Wedding and a Romantic Honeymoon

    Lol, you could even Elope to a wonderful Beach House in Destin Florida, I think I know of one that might be available your weekend…

    😉 *wink*

    You might even let it slip to a few SELECT Friends & Family where you are… they could always “drop by”

    Just saying… 😉 **double wink**

    Plan your desination wedding. If she really doesn’t travel, that means she won’t be there to ruin everybody else’s good time.

    @sweetdee522:  I see trouble on the horizon.  If this woman has your FI under control, imagine what will happen when she decides she needs great-grandchildren, like, yesterday?  Your FI needs a reality check to understand how manipulative she is.

    Have you thought about just sitting down with FI and telling him your fears? How long have you two been together that you have never met this woman?  The only reason I’m asking is this…my FI made an agreement that if we havent seen them in the year prior to our engagement, they werent coming. We did not do it to be mean or rude at all.  We had no choice.  My FI has a HUGE family and we had to cut a family of over 600 to less than 200 that had to also include my small family and both of our friends.  It seems to have worked out, but then again, my wedding isnt for another week.  Best of luck to you, I hope you two can come up with a mutual agreement. 

     

    Another option, vallum…just make sure to pop them in her drinks before…maybe she’ll be happy crazy grandma.  TOTALLY JOKING!
