well…now you will have a reason to go “visit” your mom more often.  Which I’m sure she will love.  🙂

I just replied to your other post about this.  My RSVPs are going to my parents’ house too.  But they live 2 hours away, so I’m just going to have to deal with phone updates.  We did use the king and queen stamps on the RSVP envelopes, and I put queen ones for my side and king ones for his side, so my mom knows who’s who.  Kinda.  We also mailed one to the White House so she’ll be getting something from the President too!  (Well, hopefully….and it’ll just be from the PR people who work at the White House, but STILL!)  Haha.

How far away do you live from your mother? This sounds like it’s going to become a daily trip 🙂

Since FI and I have already had a housewarming party (a few years ago) and an engagement party together, I put both our names and addresses on all engagement/wedding correspondence. Neither one of our families have contributed anything or offered any help even, so we are truly hosting everything ourselves. I also feel like the engagement and wedding are our events to announce, not theirs (particularly so with an elopement!).

This has been a huge point of contention in my family. My mom has been all about etiquette but I worry about how she will keep it all organized.  Maybe you should make her an Excel file to keep track of everything (entree choices, who is coming, etc)?
