Oh no!  That’s quite the predicament.  I still feel that you can avoid inviting them though.  You’ll just have to have your Mother go back and tell them you’re having a small, very intimate wedding.  There’s nothing wrong with a bride changing her vision, even though that’s not what you’re doing, it sounds better than, “she doesn’t want you guys coming and cleaning them out” Hahaha.  I’d also, obviously, give my Mother explicit instructions to stop saying ANYTHING about your wedding to anyone.  Jeez, lol.

I’d be pissed too! From my perspective though, your family stealing your centerpieces is so funny! To see someone actually do that cracks me up!!! but it really sucks in your case!!! I don’t know what to do now, i don’t think you can still not send them an invite. Or maybe you can, just send them a note saying that you are getting married, but with only immediate family!

I totally agree with the suggestion of “The bride had a change of mind about what she wanted to do.” And it’s definitely believable! We went from “beach wedding near Virginia in mid-2011” to “beach wedding in Florida in late 2011” to “wedding at a mansion in Pittsburgh in 2010”.

Bellenga…I know you are angry but the mental picture i got of your cousins making off with the centerpieces tickled me horribly =) I sowwy.

Seriously though…it’s your mom…what are you gonna do. Moms are notorious for doing exactly the opposite of what we want them to. Let the cousins and aunts come but let them know (only half jokingly) that the centerpieces are off limits this time.

Oh my goodness.  I would scream!  Hopefully you have a family that will understand whatever type of wedding that you are going to have, whether it’s destination or just small and intimate. Had you been planning to invite everyone?  I think I would only let my mom get away with something like that if she was paying for everything and therefore could guarantee all those that she called would be invited. 

I recommend getting very heavy centerpieces that would be a chore to take off the tables.  Now how does one dress up a canon ball?
