- Wedding: January 2011
We had our engagement party this weekend and it was so incredibly beautiful, I can’t even begin to tell you. There was plenty of food, drinks, happy people and FI and I had a truly wonderful day (huuuge props to my FMIL for putting together such a great day!!)
My mom’s family didn’t end up coming – which is what I expected and they only sort of RSVPed, which was an unexpected surprise. My grand-mom apparently wrote my FMIL a letter RSVP-ing no for everyone. I didn’t ask to see the letter, because at this point, I don’t even care, but apparently she worded it in such a way as to indicate that they did not want to be invited for the main even either.
To tell you the truth, they weren’t missed. At least by me. My mom was disappointed (as was I at first) but once the party started we all were so focused on the day and who was there that we didn’t even think about those who weren’t.
Thanks for your kind and helpful words, just wanted to give you an update and let you know of the happy-ish ending.
