- Wedding: April 2014
My FMIL has been an issue from the moment we announced are enagement and a while back she was going on about how we must have a church wedding not a DW things calmed down and have been ok for months but at dinner the other day me and FI told his parents that we are planning to do the legal bit here and have the ceremony in Mexico which I was expecting her to turn her nose up at but to my surprise she said “Thats great because . . . We could see if the priest could fly out with us” Now Im sorry but neither FI or I Want religion in the ceremony the plan was for a friend of ours who knows us both extremely well to conduct the service because we want to make the ceremony as personal as possible and for us this adds the finishing touch. FI had a talk with her after dinner but then later said that I am “Disrespectful” and “make her feel uninvolved” I am sorry but a) don’t know what the disrespectful thing is about because I have always tried to be very understanding about her wish list and what she wants b) she is very involved and not just in the planning she is even doing a reading in the service though (she is not happy with that though because we banned any religious references). I don’t know how to get her to stop because whenever I see her the first thing she wants to talk about is the wedding!!!
