@ eloping: I would have said something to her, otherwise she doesn’t know she did anything wrong- she won’t change if she doesn’t know she was rude. You obviously have the patience of a saint. 🙂


I need you in my life, I don’t have people who get excited about this stuff. 😛

  • Wedding: July 2011

My FBIL’s wedding was planned (and funded) entirely by my Future Mother-In-Law. The bride claimed to be “clueless” and didn’t want to help at all but was quick to complain when she learned she didn’t like something. Since the bride would not participate, I was asked to step in and help out with everything from making centerpieces, stuffing envelopes, printing labels, going from store to store to pick up supplies, sitting in with Future Mother-In-Law to talk to the DJ about their music selections and for the rehearsal, I had to stand in as one of the GROOMSMEN and then later relay all the details to the actual groomsmen and on the day of, I went around and placed every single place card at every single seat, set up the centerpieces, set up the gift table and went back and forth in 5 inch high heels on rocky concrete to get supplies from the car.

To make matters worse, my Fiance was in the wedding party so I was stuck at the “single” table that wasn’t even near anyone I knew at an adjacent table. I had to sit and watch the two bridesmaids on either side of my Fiance chat him up all through dinner while I sat next to the DJ’s speaker and the cake. When they went to cut the cake, I was asked to move from my table. The bride/groom had all these stupid little events that required the bridal parties participation the whole time so I never once got to be with my Fiance.

Also, the photographer was in my face the whole night making me pose for pictures and then a week later when we were given the cd of pictures from the bride/groom to take our pick of wedding photos, NONE of the pictures that the photographer took of me were there! The bride/groom deleted them. I spent all my time helping them have a good wedding and we don’t even like each other, yet I don’t even have a picture of myself to remember the occasion that I didn’t even recieve a thank you for!

Instead of being generous and helping them, I could have been working on my own wedding planning and that is the thanks I get….

  • Wedding: June 2010

Here’s some events from my FI’s cousin’s wedding (he’s the groom).

Invitations came out, date was on a Friday (ok not too bad, Sats are normally better for most folk though, but hey they wanted to save money)

The wedding was in a different county (ie destination wedding) so everyone had to travel and stay over in a hotel for two nights to accommodate this (ok fair enough, that’s where they wanted it)

Oh and guests had to pay for the coach which took us from the ceremony to the reception (reception being held in another county from the ceremony, so that’s three counties so far people)

The ceremony was held in a castle, which as beautiful as it was, had winding keep stairs that led to the ceremony room, in which guests had to ferry the groom’s elderly Grandmother (a wheelchair user) up and down (i.e. no disabled access)

When the photographs were being taken with all the guests, the Bride was asked to move slightly so she was more central to the picture, to which she demanded that her guests move around her.

Her Mother and Father in law were quite unwell on the day and didn’t know if they would make the reception.  She demanded they attend saying “I’m not having two empty seats at my head table”.

The bride left her train down all day and insisted on walking through the dance floor at every given opportunity, so towards the end of the evening (once everyone had had a few drinks) her train was obviously being stood on, which resulted in her screaming (and I mean screaming) at a few of her guests that they should watch where they’re going.

At very end of the evening she demanded that all her guests stand in a circle while she and her new husband went round everyone to say goodbye (even although she was getting on the same coach as us all and staying in the same hotel), and when anyone moved slightly from the circle they were told to “GET BACK”.
