- Wedding: May 2010
My Future Mother-In-Law has been a little crazy lately, so I want to hear some other stories!
Since day 1, she has been asking me to have the wedding in FI’s hometown. Fiance and I both really want to have it in Milwaukee, since we live here and love it, and I grew up here. Plus, traditionally the wedding takes place in the bride’s hometown. She asked me SEVERAL times if I would reconsider and have it elsewhere (she lives 2 hours north.) Okay, I’ve BEEN to the kind of wedding she wants – banquet hall, family-style fried chicken, pitchers of beer on the tables, country music, people smoke during the reception, etc. Not that those aren’t fun, because they totally are, they’re just not what we want.
So her new thing is calling me and complaining about how much the hotel block we picked costs. Okay, it’s $109/night. That is a GREAT deal for a really nice hotel downtown. I called several other places and they were from $119-$219. So I picked the best deal. She called me yesterday to ask how much parking is and if everyone has to stay at that hotel. NO. SHEESH! I just booked the block AS A COURTESY. Should I have gotten a block at the Super 8 by the airport?
She also added 15 guests after we had finalized the guest list. I had never even heard of the people, and Fiance could barely remember who they were! He took one couple off the list because he had no idea who they were.
Don’t even get me started on how much she’s freaking out about what to wear……
