- Wedding: July 2013
There was drama with her deciding on when to do this, and she invited her wedding party and my parents…..(there is a post below-“Erg, my sister is so inconsiderate” that explains this)
So i sucked it up and went today….even after 5 day and time changes in two days….
I get there and am informed that the caterer brought the wrong side dish…I get my “really?” look on my face and said “well that’s weird, it’s not the best way to keep customers happy”…her MOH says it “It could be worse” to which I reply “Well it’s a point of customer service, and as a job coach I guess I’m just pickier than some people”….
So then one of the groomsmen shows up with his fiance and the MOH takes her out into the hallway and was whispering to her….they finally come into the living/dining room…
My sis’s fiance finally comes in with MOH’s husband and even though I know him and have hung out with him in a social way he seemingly deliberately ignores me and walks into the living room part of the room (I was at the dining room part with my parents)
So then my sister starts dishing out the food….we start with the caesar salad, which was quite good….then she plated up the hot meal….roast beef (well done), roasted potatoes, chicken cordon bleu, and cooked vegetables….she tried to organize the plate to look nice, and I suggest a more ‘stacking” look (I worked in food service and at a fine dining restaurant before)…her MOH runs over saying “I was a sous chef in catering companies so I will show you”….erm, whatever (I don’t think she was ever an actual sous chef as there are many qualifications you need for this position…I know this because i worked in the food industry for many years)…..I kept my mouth shut
of course, during all this, the MOH, her husband, groomsman, and his fiancee were whispering basically right behind our backs…and I could hear “her”, “she”, “family”, “mother”….so I kind of got the clue that they were whispering about us, literally behind our backs!!!!!
We started tasting the food…my dad said the beef tasted funny….so I tasted it, and it indeed tasted funny….like it was an aftertaste but still while you were eating it….the potatoes were super salty and soggy, the vegetables were obviously frozen (to which everyone but me and my parents swore they were “fresh”…um, green and yellow beans are not in season and difficult to get right now)….MOH’s husband was quite rude about the meat tasting funny…he said it was the gravy and it was peppercorns that we were tasting , he said it in such a condescending way….it was not peppercorns…I love peppercorns and often cook with many different types….
My dad then suggested that since their wedding is a celtic theme that they should have a more “celtic” menu…like colcannon, haggis, bangers and mash, etc…..the peanut gallery in the living room starting laughing and saying ‘oh yeah, an irish caterer, I’ve never heard of that..” MOH said “Oh well we can start one….I’ll be the chef”….
I was ready to start crying….these people were being so RUDE, INCONSIDERATE, and MEAN….
I just DON’T know why she bothered inviting me and my parents if we were going to be treated so shabbily….and I have no idea why these people are rude to us at all…..
I’m very glad that my FI could not make it….he would’ve said something…..I kept my mouth shut, didn’t comment on the food (besides agreeing with my dad about the weird tasting meat)….I just told my sister to order what she wants and whtaever people don’t like they don’t have to eat (I won’t be eating at her wedding i guess…and YES it was that gross…the soggy chicken was nasty…the potatoes were WAY too salty….and the gross vegetables that are NOT fresh–I hate false advertising…
I really don’t know how I’m going to deal with these rude ignorant people for the next 18 months until her wedding….and they want to start planning the stag and doe….
If my wedding party EVER treated my family that way they would get it both barrels…but my wedding party will not do that….they are adults….
Oh, best part is the MOH is 37 (my fiances age) and her husband is over 40…..so mature
