- Wedding: May 2010
Ok, let me preface this by saying that I really do love my FMIL. As far as in laws go, I am very lucky. However, this past week with her has caused me to have my only 2 bridal breakdowns.
Friday – I’m back home in TN for my bachelorette party. I get an email from FMIL saying that 2 people who had originally said they weren’t coming (without sending in the RSVP card, BTW!), can now come. REALLY?! 20 minutes later, I get another email asking which table we could fit them into. How about the table at their own house! Luckilly, I was with my mom who kept me (somewhat) calm from killing my FMIL. I sent back that if she could figure out where to put them, it was fine. Crisis averted.
Monday – I get a text from FMIL saying that she was too chicken to call me, but her Aunt had just called confirming that her daughter in law and grandchildren were coming to the wedding. EXCUSE ME?! They weren’t even invited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So, basically, we had to accomodate 3 extra people who were never even on the guest list. I lost my s#!t. I called my mom crying and yelling. She tried to calm me down, but it was pointless. I calmed down enough to call FMIL and tell her there was no way we could accomodate them. We were almost at capacity. Sorry, they’re not invited, they cant come (but in a much nicer way). She sounded all upset and was like “well, what are we supposed to do?” SERIOUSLY?! What are you supposed to do? You’re not supposed to freaking call me TWELVE days away from my wedding with this stupid crap!!! That’s what you’re supposed to do.
After another frantic phone call with my mom, I chilled a bit and made room for the uninvited guests.
My wonderful FI called his mom and said that under no circumstances is she to come to me with this type of thing again. If someone asks if they can come that have not RSVP’d (or were even invited), tell them NO. Or, talk to my mom about it.
What on earth could have compelled her to call me about this sort of nonsense.
