How is everyone dealing with in laws??
my fiancé and I feel like we just can’t win with his family. bling story short- they are not paying for anything, which is ok, because they daren’t really in a position To. My parents are paying majority and my fiancé and I about 1/3. My parents are graciously paying for the 40 guests my in laws wanted invited.
there have been several events leading up to this….his mom threatening not to come to the wedding after I took her to floral appointment and she heard our floral budget (which is actually pretty cheap for the # of centerpieces we need) , she is pissed his sisters aren’t in the wedding. Etc. my bridesmaids are wearing long chiffon dresses, his sisters were mad when they couldnt wear satin ballgowns to be greeters….basically everything has been met with a Complaint from them.
our latest issue, which fi and I are both upset about, is that they don’t want to pay for the tuxes we pickid out for the future father in law and future brother in lAw. They think they are too expensive. we looked at 4 stores before we chose these tuxes and there is even a coupon I went to a bridal show specifically to get, which lowered the price. I verified with my brother who was in 3 weddings last year and this is a standard tux price.
am I being unreasonable to think they should be getting these tuxes? The bridal party as well as my family will be wearing them, so if they something else they will stand out. It aalso hurta because we have been engaged for over a year and the wedding is still 5 months away and it’s hard to know they couldn’t save up the price of 2 tux rentals in this time while my parents pay for everything…especially when Future Mother-In-Law spent 2x the amount of a tux rental on her dress and they recently bought new furniture for theor house.
why does it have to be so complicated!!!
