my fiancés mother said that she wanted to throw an engagement party for us. She talked about this to my mom. My mom was kind of upset to hear that she wanted to throw a 4 people birthday bash and add our engagement party on top of that. One person’s birthday the bash would be celebrating was her own birthday. My mom asked her not to do it and now the FMIL isn’t throwing one at all. She said she would. I’m not here to cry about it but I am a bit sad she wanted to combine it with 4 other peoples birthdays in the family and then backed out completely when my mom said that wouldnt be appreciated. I kind of wish she hadn’t done that or didn’t even volunteer in the first place. Would anyone else be kind of like “Why on earth would anyone think this was a good idea?” Like how does someone not put themselves in the couples shoes and realize it wouldn’t be as special, especially if none of their birthdays were being celebrated? A 4 person birthday bash and an engagement party sounds like all kinds of craziness..
