- Wedding: February 2013
So we did a city hall wedding but MIL wanted to throw us a big reception. Fine. 3 days to go. And she hasn’t done anything except hand my mom a check for half the cost. My mom is furious. MIL came up with all the ideas of what she wanted, what DIY projects we should do, what the room should look like, how the tables should be arranged, etc… But has she helped put together one centerpiece? Nope. Made one favor? Nope. Called to track down non-responders on time? Nope. Consulted with the caterer? Nope. Taken at ride to Michael’s or the dollar store to pick up supplies? Nope. Any questions she has for vendors she makes me call them for her. I wouldn’t mind doing 1/3 of the work, but making my mom do 1/2 and me do the other 1/2 is just plain rude. We all work 9-5 jobs and don’t have unlimited free time to dedicate to this party. Now that it’s crunch time she won’t return my phone calls. AAAARRRGGH!! Sorry, just needed to vent.
