- Wedding: September 2011
so a little back story. when we first got engaged my Future Mother-In-Law said she would pay for the rehersal dinner as long as we didnt go too crazy. my fiance wanted to go to a bbq place in town so we price shopped and found somewhere for about $10 a head. we called her and told her it would be a tiny bit over 200. suddenly she wasnt paying for the rehersal dinner…so we decided to just wait and see what we could figure out on our own. when we started looking at getting a house we decided it would be really cool to have a house warming/rehersal dinner so people could see the new house, we could bbq in the back yard and save a ton of money doing it ourselves. well we waited and waited for our house and now that we know we are getting it we decided to do it at the house for sure but do it at a friends house as a plan b.
now we are waiting on our closing date which we have been told willl be about 2 weeks before our wedding so we changed back to having it at the house. i started typing up all the info and directions and making our shopping list for the dinner. Future Sister-In-Law called and asked what we were planning on doin for dinner and we told her. she said she would call her mom (SMIL) and let her know so she could tell their family that was going to attend. Future Mother-In-Law called and said she dosent want us to do it at the new house because it wont be unpacked and set up. yes everything will still be in boxes what do you want me to do lady???
so she offered to pay for it (again…) and said she would do pizza. so i call our venue to see if we could do pizza there and they said no outside food. ok fine. so i bring up having it at a park about 3 miles from the venue. she brings up how are we going to get “everyone” there. well there are only 20 people invited. with the 4 cars we have access to with in town family thats a total of 23 seats…its not rocket science…but she dosent want it at a park (you know where the kids can play at the playground and the guys can fish and we dont have to pay for anything we dont want to bring in the cooler….)so we are having it at a pizza place where the pizza is 10 bucks each instead of 5 and we have to pay for beer and soda…
i still want to have it at the house but whatever ill let her have this one little thing. im not going to eat pizza i break out like a 14 year old girl from just a few bites.
ugh i think im done…thanks for reading lol
