I am a regular poster on this site but writing under a disguised screen name as some family members and friends frequent the Bee!
I need an opinion! I absolutley positively hate my future mother in law! We have had several pretty bad fights and my soon to be groom knows all to well how I feel about her and understands my feelings but still tries to be a peace keeper.
My bridal shower is approching fast and my maid of honor has asked me for a guest list. The venue the maids have selected has a maximum capacity of 40 people for a shower and my close friends and family hit that mark exactly (ive already had to make cuts). My Future Mother-In-Law is not on the guest list nor is any of his family (I’m not close with anyone on his side).
My fiance thinks I need to invite his mom and grandma just as a peace keeping measure, but I explained that it would be very uncomfortable for them as well as my guests as it is no secret she and I don’t get along and I don’t think anyone from my family would be overly friendly or talkative to her.
I always thought that bridal showers were more for the bride and were about the brides closest friends and family getting together to celebrate her. Am I completely off base? I don’t think it’s fair that I would have to exclude my close family and girlfriends just to add his family to the list when I barely know them.
My future groom says its up to me but I want to make sure I’m not being a bridezilla here! What would you do?
