On the morning before the wedding, I’ve booked a salon for the “girls” and they will be able to get whatever they want done, bride’s family’s treat. We’ll have mimosas and kolaches with our pedicures. I thought it would be a nice way to start the weekend- and most of the girls are looking forward to it. So I sent out the invitation over a month ago and the only ones waffling are the mother of the groom and his sister. They will be in town- that much they have told me. Can you guys see any problem?

Maybe they don’t want to make you pay for them or they want to spend the morning with your FI?

I don’t see what the problem is. The mother of the groom probably wants to spend time with her son in the morning. Don’t make an issue about it.

Nope, come to find out about it- she planned to come but is passive-aggresive and didn’t want to contact me to tell me. Found out through her daughter. I was an MOG this past summer and I understand her and the feelings of letting go of a son, but I am not fighting over the “kids” now or in the future. She has been very cold- and I won’t be doing her any more favors unless there is a change of tone. I’d really like a copacetic relationship with her, but she comes from a rural mindse4t and thinks that we are uppity cityfolks. It’s too bad for her though, because I know the value of friendship- and I really don’t think she has women friends. Maybe it’s something we can work on through the years.

Mind if I steal your idea for a manicure party?? 😉 That sounds awesome!

Perhaps they are intending to spend time with a lot of family they do not normally see? Wedding can bring together a bunch of people who do not see each other often.
