- Wedding: December 2010
Well girls, I wanted to take some time off of the Bee (because I got addicted), but I cannot leave you hanging on this topic, you’ve all been very helpful and supportive and I appreciate each of you.
You remember the grieving mother who invited herself to our wedding, tried to set my groom up with her daughter, assumes that said daughter is invited also and continues to post about her disappointment with our upcoming wedding? Well, heres what I decided to do:
1. I’m too upset to ignore this
2. I don’t want her to book 3 flights (one for daughter) before I send the invitations out.
3. I cannot be so rude as to “tell her off”, for whatever reason, this woman means something to Fiance and Future Mother-In-Law.
4. I need to maintain a level of dignity while still standing ground.
Therefore, I just sent off the following email:
Hello Mrs. Crazy,
I know that we have not yet had the pleasure of meeting, but (FMIL) came to visit this weekend and mentioned that you had asked her some details of the wedding in order to begin making travel arrangements. I know that she is glad you and your husband will be able to make the trip out for our wedding. Originally, we were planning a small, private ceremony and reception including just our immediate families. But obviously, our guest list has grown and we are happy to invite both you and your husband to our wedding. We’re so excited to be getting married after many happy years of dating…we are so blessed to have eachother and are truly best friends! Although a large wedding was not our original intention, we’re thrilled that our guest list has grown to include friends of our parents. In the next few weeks, we will be sending you the link to our wedding website, which includes all the travel/accommodation information you and your husband will need to make your arrangements.
We discussed that if anyone has questions regarding the wedding it would be best to contact me directly since (FI) has been unable to participate much in the planning process, he’s just so busy with his MD, research, and more! I will be happy to help you with any information you may need between now and August!
It will be a pleasure to see you and Mr. Crazy.
Virginia and (FI)
