- Wedding: August 2009
@ Miss-Norris – my Aunt wore a white pant suit to her son’s wedding. I felt so bad for my cousin’s bride. So when I got engaged, I told her if she is coming to the wedding she better not wear any shade of white. Her reply "I would never." Ha! Yeah, right.
This was the latest comment from my Future Mother-In-Law when I told her that we need a wedding coordinator. They are a luxury to have, since we are getting married in their backyard I think it is a necessity.
Me: The wedding coordinator will do everything and take care of managing all the vendors so that you don’t have to worry about where the flowers go and which linens go on which tables.
Future Mother-In-Law: Well X (FFIL) said he will be home on the morning of the wedding and FI’s Aunt will be there and so wil Fiance. So we should have plenty of help. And besides, it will give Fiance something to take his mind off of being so nervous.
Me: I do not think folding napkins and making sure we have enough ice will help calm FI’s nerves. And besides, it is his wedding day, he should be nervous, it is natural. Making him work on his wedding day is not going to help that at all.
Then there is this one. Future Mother-In-Law keeps asking me if I am wearing my mother’s earrings every time I see her. She has asked me about them 4 times now. My mother passed away in a horribly tragic accident which Future Mother-In-Law did not care to hear the details and when I told her, her response was one of a 3 yr. old "oh look, there are the dogs." I’m not kidding, that is what she said after I told her the story of how my mom had been hit by a truck standing on the side of the road. So when she keeps asking me about the diamond earrings I wear to honor her (she left them to me) it only annoys me that she seems so obviously jealous, as these earring are much larger than the ones she wears.
