- Wedding: September 2010
Well… my brother just called me. It’s been a few months since his wife had posted on Facebook that it was “up in the air” as to whether they were going to come to the wedding.
He wanted to know if I was among the “many people” stateside who were afraid they’d come to the wedding and cause drama. He said that my dad had mentioned that a few months back and it really hurt him to think that people thought they would do that, and he needed to know if I was one of those people who thought that.
I told him that I don’t want drama at the wedding regardless of the source, whether it be my side of the family, FI’s side of the family or any of our friends. I told him that I knew there were conversations/issues that existed between he, his wife and my parents, and that I don’t want there to be tension at the wedding because of that. I said that FI and I have dealt with enough wedding-related drama already that we hope that everyone can put aside their differences and issues for one day and be there for us, and that it was important to me to have my family there.
I let him know that it is also important to me to get the picture of me and my three brothers all together, that I have the one from his wedding, from my other brother’s wedding, and it means a lot to me to have one from my wedding.
I said that I knew when last I talked to him, he had said my nephew and his wife were still up in the air, but that he’d be there, and that I understand given how she feels about everything if she doesn’t come, and that we won’t take it personally, but that it’s their call.
He said that was what he needed to hear, and that he obviously loves me very much and likes FI a lot and wants to be there for us, since we were there to support them at their wedding. He didn’t confirm or deny whether it would just be him, or if his wife and son would be at the wedding too, so I’ll be keeping an eye on the mailbox for their RSVP…
