- Wedding: March 2011
(Sorry, kinda long…)
First of all, I hate having people go out of their way for me, which is part of the reason wedding stuff has been a bit stressful. For example, one of my BM’s is throwing me a bridal shower. My friend invited my future in-laws, which was totally fine with me as they are really awesome people. However, they are very very Mormon, so they are pretty conservative. Although I am not religious myself, I grew up in the culture so I am used to it.
At the shower, I told my friend that I didn’t really want any naughty games, alcohol or penis-related goodies. lol. I just knew that my future family would not find this appropriate. However, my friend just responded, “okay, but I can’t promise anything.” Hmmm….
Invites to the party go out, and one of the future sisters is only 13, so she wasn’t invited. I did not make the guest list, nor did I have any say in the matter. My friend wouldn’t even let me make suggestions because she wants it all to be a surprise. So my FMIL was really upset that her 13-year-old daughter was not invited and asked me if she could come. I didn’t want them to feel bad, so I said yes. However, now my friend isn’t very happy that I said yes. I feel torn because I am trying to please two sets of people here. What should I do? Should I univite the sister, or should I just tell my friend to deal with it??
