- Wedding: October 2010
So, i have no idea where to begin. But my FI family have been nothing but trouble since before we got engaged. Originally his father was to be his best man, this is a man who was not around at all when he was a kid. But they were trying to build a relationship so whatever. Then he disappears again with no word and no apology when he reappears. So obviously he is no longer the best man. My FI insisted on standing alone and i stupidly suggested that he ask his sisters to be his “Best Women” OMG what a mistake and fiasco this has been. One swore she ordered her dress (she lives out of state)and never did too late for her to come out, the other one feels that she’s doing him a favor and throws it up in his face on a regular basis as to how it’s an inconvenience. Also insisted that he pay for half her dress and argued with the dress shop that it is ridiculous to pay for alterations that they should sell her a dress that fit and if it didn’t they should fix it. WTF REALLY?????? Well yesterday 3 days out from the wedding she stops by my house to pick up the dress, she couldn’t go to the dress shop herself, and because i had the audacity to be running errands and not home waiting with baited breath for her proceeded to pitch a fit. Hanging up on people and yelling etc. Somehow she thought she was more important that she really is, because FI told her he’d pay what little she spent on the dress back and not to bother to come to the wedding.
Now i feel really bad for him because the rest of his knuckle dragging relatives can’t make it to the wedding for various reasons, no kids, why get married, why spend money on a wedding, etc etc etc. Now with this sister not in attendance there will be no one there for him and we’re out well over $800 for their plates that we have already paid for. I guess i’m just venting and looking for advice on how to relax and enjoy the day.
