- Wedding: August 2011
As you can tell from my other posts, my wedding has been nothing but drama and tears. Actually after looking over my posts, I was almost embarassed to post ANOTHER drama filled post, but I’m pretty much ready to give up and have no one to talk to close to me, so Weddingbee board advice is all I have to go on.
In additional to my bridesmaid/maid of honor drama, my parents have decided to tell me today that they are not coming to my wedding, and if they do they will cause a scene. My fiance and I are paying for the entire wedding, so my parents go and invite 12 of their biker friends without telling me. Fine. I let that go. My mom throws a fit over my invitations and calls everyone in my family yelling about me. Now, I told my parensts months ago that I was planning on inviting my aunt (mom’s sister) that has been on the outs with my mom for some time. If it was over something harsh, I would never do it, but basically it’s them too arguing over who gets more attention from their parents (extremely mature of them), so I’m over with the drama and ready to extend an olive branch to my aunt, because she’s never done anything to me and we always had a good relationship.
My parents now claim they never remembered me saying this, told me that they know she received an invitation, and if she comes they are either going to A) come and make a scene and refuse to walk me down the aisle or B) not come and never talk to me again. Oh yeah, and they told me I’m a horrific daughter, souless, and a complete disappointment of a person in their eyes. Then, they called my fiance and told him the same and even went as far to call me a b**** to him.
My fiance has this well manner, conservative, good natured family and I am MORTIFIED at the thought of them seeing the antics of my parents of all people at what is supposed to be a very happy day.
I’m debating on whether I should just eat the money I spent so far (about $7,000 in deposits) and call everyone who received invites and tell them we had to call it off. I was so excited about everything just a few days ago after the last round of drama, and now all I can do is cry everytime I think about it.
So, if anyone has advice on what to do, I could really use it at this time.
