- Wedding: October 2013
So for those of you who might have read previous threads, there was some initial tension between FI’s brother’s new Fiance and I; they got engaged after only knowing each other a few months, moved their wedding to the month before ours, and there was generally drama overall.
But for the past month or so I’ve really been trying to be the bigger person and be nice, even if she wasn’t. I kept sending her links for wedding stuff, sample sale info, etc. I figured if we were going to be family, there’s no point in holding onto grudges.
So imagine my surprise when over dinner last night she asks me to be a bridesmaid! I am actually really happy about it, as Fiance is the best man and I was the only family member not included initially. So, I reciprocated and asked if she would do a reading for ours (we’re only having a Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man, no regular bridal party). She said yes and seemed pleased. Since then, we’ve exchanged several nice emails with ideas.
It just makes me really happy. I hate arguing and drama, and it seems our relationship is finally turning in the right direction. I hope this keeps up; just want us all to get along.
