- Wedding: March 2012
Maybe I shouldn’t be, but geesh!!!
Our wedding is coming up really soon… March 25 to be exact. My FI’s nephew lives in Tennessee and we are in Florida where the wedding is. We were told that nephew and his wife will not be attending due to finances, and the fact that they have a baby due in August. OK, fine no problem… we understand.
Yesterday I get a phone call from said nephew, they may be able to come after all… as his mom suggested that they can have a baby shower while they are down.
Back Story… Nephew and wife got married last June when they found out she was pregnant and grandma on mom’s side of family said if they get married before baby is born she will pay for deposit for an apartment and utilities for them. So they did get married quickly. They had a JOP wedding and then planned on coming down in the summer for a late reception/shower. Unfortunately 2 months later she lost the baby and all plans stopped, except they did get the place to live thanks to grandma.
Now, they are thinking to come in on the 20th for our wedding on the 25th and leave on the 26th and sometime in that short amount of time have a baby shower (who has a shower in March for a baby due in August), and our rehearsal, bachelor/bachelorette parties and wedding.
This seems so gift grabby on their part. I have already heard complains from the mom because no one sent them wedding gifts. Of course we were all told they were coming down for a reception and had planned on doing the gifts then. I bought them dishes while we were up visiting, which was the plan the whole time.
Does anyone else see this as gift grabby???
