- Wedding: August 2014
My FMIL has been driving me nuts from the moment we got engaged! When we first called her to tell her we got engaged (we were on vacation in Las Vegas) her response was “really why?”. Its not like we did this too soon we had been dating for 6 years and living together for almost 3. We brushed it off and continued to have a good vacation. When we got back it was Easter Sunday so we were at his parents for dinner and she was sobbing in the kitchen over the fact that FI never told her he was going to get engaged. We tried to reassure her that FI decided while we were visitng friends earlier that week to propose while we were in Vegas.
Fast forward a bit and all she does is make snotty comments about how big my ring is and how she hopes FI could afford it. When we asked her for a guest list she sent him a list with over 200 people on it! FI didnt even recognize 50 people on the list and shes not contributing so we cut the guest list down, which she now hates me for. We had already decided where we wanted to get married and where we wanted the reception early on in our engagement, but all she does now is email us about different sites (none of which can hold as many people as our guest list is, which is around 250) and email FI about the bridal shower, which my matron of honor has already started planning.
When FI sat her down and asked her to stop emialing him as we were taking a small break from planning she flipped out and has now been silent about the wedding and refuses to talk about it even though we have started planning again now. The only reason we took a break from planning is becasue FI lost his job right after we got engaged and in June got a new job in his field in a different city 130 miles away, so we had to find a place, start to sell our house in the current town and i had to quit my job to relocate, so our lives took a complete 180.
now everytime someone brings up the word wedding she goes oh im not supposed to talk about that and glares at us. It is all just so frustrating!
