- Wedding: July 2012
My Future In-Laws have been pretty terrific since the first day they met my daughter and I. I won’t bore you with the amazing details of how awesome the entire family has been, right down to the two aunts, granny, cousins…it’s unreal.
My own parents, well, they suck. Dad, stepmommy.. and MOTHER..all toxic in their own ways. However, my parents will probably (no one has booked, it is 84 days away) come to my Destination Wedding so I wonder…if I have someone (possibly FI’s cousin that I am closest to) read something during the ceremony or reception from me to my inlaws, is this rude? I thought about writing something but I just cry the whole time I draft..ugh..maybe a lighthearted poem?
I’m also sending Future Mother-In-Law and the two aunts cards to their homes while we are all in Florida for “Wedding Week 2012” with my own sentiments. I just feel that they need a special shout out during the wedding especially for accepting that I have a daughter, and we live together, and Fiance financially totally supports us. (My family has plentyyyy to say about all of the above. Also that we moved 400 miles away for his new awesome CAREER. Not just a job.)
Am I being a snarky B by wanting to do this? My intentions are good, but as I said, my family is totally toxic and EVERYTHING is always taken the wrong way. If I say the sky is blue, they accuse me of being an alcoholic. If they call and daughter is in the bathroom, they assume she has either run away or I am holding her hostage (seriously, they’re wackos–moving 400 miles away was NICE!!)
That being overly explained…anyone have any ideas for a reading/poem and the appropriate time to do so?? Something about acceptance, and thanks?
