- Wedding: April 2011
Some of you have read before where my FMIL announced at a party to all her friends that her and her guy would get married before us and we need to keep May and June open because they need our daughter for their flowergirl. While I don’t care if they do I don’t like the way they are saying it. They are being snotty about it, like they’re better than us.
We’ve been together for 7 years and engaged for 4 of those years; it’s hard to get married and do all of life’s other things when my FI is always out of state for work and we want to have a wedding with our families.
FMIL lost her husband 5 years ago today, and IMO the family has never dealt with it fully. She has been with this new guy, who we like, for a year or two and they’ve been engaged for maybe 6 months. This past week they announced their date, June 17, 2011. What they didn’t know was that I’ve already sent in deposits to several vendors for April 2, 2011.
So tonight we took our girl trick or treating and they were our first stop. They had some friends over and asked if we had seen they had set the date and then asked if we had. We said yes and told them when, to which her FI replies “Well I’m gonna lose some money now!” She said she needed to write it down, but never did and probably won’t. Then they started trashing our reception site because it is on a Catholic college campus and they didn’t know if alcohol is allowed there (Which it is). Then they started asking if we want to have a double wedding on their date with them at the VFW. Umm… that’s a no.
I think we handled it very well and just replied that we had already sent in deposits. Then my FI excused us so we could leave. The comments keep replaying in my head though and I’m just irritated that they can’t be happy for us. VENT OVER.
