    Whoa, sounds like a petty reason not the like your FI. No one who knows about my wedding has any plans of stopping it, or at least haven’t made any sort of rejection known. That’s terrible that your family is treating someone who obviously will be the next part of the family as a whole so awfully. You have a more forgiving soul than I do I think…if my parents treated my FI like that at all, I would have threatened uninviting quick. I mean, that’s the man you plan on spending your life with…show some respect!

    Asichka:  The way they’re acting is really immature. It’s one thing to refrain from attending on their own, but to convince others not to go is messed up. Misery loves company I guess.

    Just keep doing what you’re doing, go right ahead with planning and arrange so that you will have people to take the place of the no-shows at the parents’ table. Good for you for refusing to be bullied!

    Asichka:  I had a LOT of people try to sabotage my wedding, but thankfully not my family!

    It started with the pastor we were doing premarital counselling with, because he thinks everyone should be engaged for at least two years, and we were only engaged for five months. Then a week before the wedding my maid of honour and her “boyfriend” started. Two days before our wedding my father in law started getting calls from another pastor and from my maid of honour and this guy, saying awful lies about DH and I and our relationship. They actually almost got our wedding cancelled. 

     

    But in the end, everything worked out. We had a beautiful wedding, and everyone who came was happy for us. I know that the same thing will happen for you. Don’t worry about who isn’t going to be there, think about everyone who will be there to be happy for you. It will probably take a while, but your parents will eventually realize that you truly are happy and that they were wrong.

    Why do you want a relationship with people who talk about your FH this way?  What does your FH think about that?  I say just cut your losses here.  Sorry you have so drama & negativity during this special time & I do truly hope everything works out for you!

    I have no experience with this, but I just wanted to say GOOD ON YOU for taking charge of your own life. AND for being generous enough to make space for your parents in your life even if they are acting ridiculous.

    Oh god that sounds messy. I have a little drama but nothing too bad. My mother in law wants control over every decision and when I dont give it to her she breaks down but other then that it has been smooth sailing

    Asichka:  Yikes. That definitely isn’t fun. Ours was a whole different problem since it was SO CLOSE to the wedding. Seriously, this girl who had been my best friend called my FIL and told him DH had slept with his best friend. Which is a total lie, and she knew that. Who does that??? I really really hope that you and your FI are able to get everything sorted out without any more prblems like that!

    Asichka:  Dang! I wish you all the happiness in the world. Sometimes, you just have to go your own way. 🙂

     

    I didn’t exactly have anyone try to ruin my wedding, but my brothers gf faked an engagement a few weeks before it!

    That was pretty weird, because I wouldn’t have been offended or anything if it was real! When I congratulated my brother, he just said, “Uhhhh. Nooo, I’m not engaged.” His gf is a pretty strange girl. They weren’t able to make it because our wedding was in Mexico, and I think maybe she was mad about that? She and I are not even close. So weird.
