Yikes, 10 hours? :/ I can’t stand ANYONE for that long usually.

Is there something you guys can go DO? Or is it just going to be the awkward sitting in your house vibe?

Good luck!

don’t stress over it. all the extra time with them is good for your relationship with your IL’s. Won’t your Fiance be there the whole time? I’m sure it will be fine. Just make conversation about the wedding and your plans for the future with ur soon to be hubby. I don’t think your Future Mother-In-Law will leave all the conversation topics up to you either way.  Just relax and enjoy time with your new family. 

As far as the dinner itself, think of it this way–you’ll have plenty of yummy leftovers πŸ™‚

@Bears-bub: WOW 10 Hours.. my limit is like 5h a day or something. :/ It’s just too much. Well, if they are comfortable enough at your place like my IL’s are, maybe you’ll be able to sneak away from time to time and catch a breather. πŸ˜€

10 hours? Why?

I would run to the grocery if you forgot something. Then the post office… Since they changed their plans you don’t HAVE to be there.

Honestly though I would be out of the house until later in the day, you can start the pot roast and leave it in the oven alone right?

I would go out for lunch then plan an activity of some sort- a walk, a trip to the museum, art gallery etc.

Have they seen the wedding venue?

@Bears-bub:  I like julies1949 idea of taking them to the wedding venue.  As long as they aren’t likely to criticise (unless constructively), it can give you a topic of conversation for the rest of the day.

Then you can shut yourself away in the kitchen to prepare dinner.  That’s what I do.

A glass of wine also helps… πŸ˜‰

Hope it all goes well (and quickly!).

BAhahahahhaa “Ceilingcat help me”

Good luck today!  I would be groaning, too.  Mine are coming over on Sunday, but (as far as I know) it’s just for dinner.
