- Wedding: June 2010
Maybe this is just an Asian mom kind of thing, but my mom is TOTALLY INVADING my house (and my hotel room!) the week of my wedding. The wedding is on a Saturday. She and two friends from Singapore will be arriving Wednesday. My dad, brother, and brother’s girlfriend are arriving on Thursday. Three more of my mom’s friends are arriving Friday. She wants AS MANY AS POSSIBLE to stay at my 2 bedroom house (with me, the FI, and our four pets still in it) that weekend and she wants to rent as few hotel rooms as possible for all these people – which means that she wants to stuff a whole bunch of people into MY hotel room with me the night before the wedding.
I tried to tell her that it is going to be a really stressful time with lots of last minute things to take care of, and that I would prefer not to have too many people at the house. She gave me this guilt trip about how all these people are traveling to my wedding for me and that if it was in Boston (my hometown) instead of DC, this wouldn’t have been a problem. She has no concept of personal space and does not understand why I might want to have some alone time right before the wedding. I know myself and I will be stressed the days leading up to the wedding, and I will inevitably be short-tempered and unpleasant, which is not at all the impression I want to give to my mother’s friends.
There is totally no getting around it though, it’s just the most AGGRAVATING situation!!! Anyone else have crazy, overbearing family who refuses to take no for an answer??
