- Wedding: October 2012
So, I have a sister and brother, both older. I have always been the one who has travelled, lived away from home and experienced new things, they both live within about 3 minutes of my parents and seem to live in each others pockets constantly.
I am planning my wedding reception (we are getting married abroad – stupidly thought this would cut out the family politics!) and my lovely siblings have kicked off again. Now to the point that I am being told I will have to choose between them who I invite to the reception!
My fiance doesnt have a large family, and all of his relatives seem quite sane, so it worries me that I will be embarrassed if I invite both of them (even under strict instructions not to speak or argue with each other) and they kick off.
I honestly feel like cancelling the reception. To me being married is the important bit. We have talked about taking our parents away to London and having a meal somewhere extraordinary like The Savoy and then paying for them to stay for the weekend and go and see some shows etc etc. This will probably be a lot less stressful!
Does anyone else out there have a really disfunctional family?!
