There seems to be more and more postings about issues with in-laws and ppl complaining about the wedding, the more into wedding season we get.
I have never had a problem with my in laws till this weekend when we got complaints about our wedding be small and more upscale. We have patched it up but the frequency of the inlaw posts has me thinking this is very common in the weeks leading up to the big day.

I haven’t noticed a particular influx of those types of posts -but I do think the wedding stress affects people in different waves. My family had issues early on in the process and are only now turning a corner. I haven’t had an issues with my FIL’s but one can only wonder if that bubble is going to burst any time soon!
Glad to hear you were able to work it out with yours!

Interesting theory. I have noticed that whenever weddings come up in conversation, everybody seems to think they have THE obvious right answer. (“No kids?! Awful!” “Kids?! Awful!”) Now that it’s wedding season, your inlaws might be comparing to other weddings, making them seem more . . . difficult.
It’s a roller coaster with my parents and inlaws. One second I am silently mouthing WTF into the phone, the next I am wondering what I was so upset about. They complain about menu choices, they make 540 chocolate covered pretzels as a huge favor. I can’t keep track of whether I love them or hate them! (Not entirely true, even when I “hate” them, I know I still love them)
I don’t think the problem is “wedding season” . . . it’s just “weddings”!

i guess i can sorta see that – my FMIL has been recently coming to me with all these ideas that she’s gotten from people at work who have recently attended weddings. i love her to bits, but i usually just ignore the ideas because they’re not what we want.

I feel the opposite 🙂 The number of IL posts seem to have gone done lately. That’s my opinion though 😉
And yes, it’s just “weddings”!

Maybe as you have the issues begin to notice other ppl with the same situations.
