My lovely and amazingly sweet future sister-in-laws are throwing me my bridal shower in July. I just sent them the guest list and realized how awkward it may end up being. Half the crowd will be strong catholics or christians and the other half are loud, you could conisder them goth, and they don’t really think before they say things. It should be a blast watching these gals interact. My best friend and I are just going to sit back and watch the show!
Anyone else going to have an odd bunch for their wedding events?

@Birdee106: Mine was pretty much exactly that same mix. My Maid/Matron of Honor hosted at her parents’ house. Both her and her family are super Catholic. Half the people invited were my fellow performers from the renaissance festival. Very interesting mix, to say the least, but it went really well!

Mine will be awkward because of divorced families- fun times

My FI’s family are very strict (IDK if that is the word) Christians. They do not drink at all, and look at you kind of funny if you do. My family and friends on the other hand, well lets just say that at the wedding it is a good thing that most of them will be sleeping over. Yes, I do think it will be quite interesting!

@BrookieCookie9: Same here! Ugh, not looking forward to it. My FI’s mother and step mother do not get along. I get along better with his stepmother, so, of course, my Future Mother-In-Law hates that. My Future Mother-In-Law is a “whoa is me” kind of person where she has to always have a pity party. Ridiculous. She complains constantly and its annoying. My friends and my family get very frustrated with her “in a circle” conversation where it all goes back to her.
To top it off, my Maid/Matron of Honor has pretty much been a total waste (one day Ill do a post, I just havent calmed myself down enough yet to write it all out without getting frustrated). My Future Sister-In-Law has basically taken over (actually did…got the venue, planned meetings with BMs, found a caterer, ordered invitations, etc) and my Maid/Matron of Honor is pissed. So, that will be interesting.
One thing I love about this site, I always find other Bees who are pretty much going through the same crap we are. Thank you Bees for making me realize i’m not crazy! LOL
