Well last night I finally met DH aunt, I have to say I thought it went very well. She is very nice, we both could tell that she felt a little foolish for being distant about our wedding. She made it a point to mention many times how they really didn’t realize the stress and money cost that goes into a wedding. I think the fact that their daugther is getting married now makes them really see what they did to us at our wedding was shady. She was really surprised that we got her daughter a gift as well, and I know from the bottom of my heart that if it wasn’t for my MIL they never would have cold shouldered us to begin with. My DH said it’s not an excuse for them to shun us but he is glad he got the oppurtunity to show his side to at least 1 person in his family. He feels that there was no way she could have walked away from our dinner with ANYTHING remotely negative to say. So overall it was a good night and glad we went, by the end of the night things were comfortable and she even said we are welcome to visit her anytime out west. I thought that was nice.
