- Wedding: May 2011
So to give you a little background I have known my Future Mother-In-Law for over 5 years. My Fiance used to live with her while he was in college (when we first started dating) and she has always been difficult to get along with. She is one of those people who always has to be right and always think she should get her way. She thinks her opinion is the only one that matters.
She has offered to pay for some parts of the wedding which is nice but at the same time she thinks whatever she pays for she should pick out. So she has picked the flowers and the rehearsal dinner location and food. Her choices are not what I would pick but I just cannot win because in her mind she is paying and she gets what she wants. When I have tried to give me opinion on these she got very upset and so I just ended up going with what she wanted.
So then yesterday she was asking about the reception for the wedding and I told her my sister was going to do a power point slide show. She immediately went off about how a slide show would be tacky, boring and a horrible idea. Never was I asking for her opinion, I only told her about it because she asked me what we would be doing. So in the heat of the moment I told her “this isn’t your wedding and we are going to do it anyway” After that she stopped talking and seemed angry. We dropped her off at her home and then my Fiance went on about how I shouldn’t have said to her and that now she was upset at me. So to try and smooth things over I called her to apologize, don’t know if she is mad or not but I feel super frustrated about how she acts towards me.
I do not mean to be disrespectful to her. At the same time there is no way I can express what I want for the wedding without her taking it as me being disrespectful.
