    I’m not really worried about my family, but rather about HIS.  There’s sort of an ongoing feud between sides, and I really hope our wedding doesn’t become their open battleground.  We’re pretty much outside the drama though, so hopefully everyone will keep it under control out of respect for us.

    I’m not worried about my side. I’m worried about his. His dad hasn’t seen his mom since he walked in on her with her current husband. Step dad gets a little emotional. Bio dad will probably make fun of step dad for crying in public. Fiance will then say something about Irish blood and a chair might get thrown. Uggh.

    @forforever: lol I love them all though. They have been so welcoming and I can’t wait to take a trip to Ireland after our wedding to see more of his family that can’t make it in. But seriously, I might just have to hire security just to keep his mom and dad away from each other.

    I am and I’m not.  I’m obligated to invite my mother, even though I’d rather she not be there, but I know she won’t make a scene.  Is it weird that I wish she would?  I think I would honestly prefer the humiliation of some whackanut monster-in-law speech in the middle of my wedding over the plastic “look at what a happy family we are” crap that I know I’ll be getting instead.  I hate the idea of having that phoniness on my wedding day.  🙁

    Also, at least one of my brothers will get drunk and embarrass me, but that’s kind of the idea behind the Friday-night-party vibe I want to get going, so I’m cool with that.  It’ll be a hilarious memory one day.

    I have an aunt who ALWAYS takes an entourage to weddings, parties, etc. I’m afraid she’s RSVP for two and bring about ten with her.

    My 51-year-old sister started a whipped cream fight with my 27-year-old son at our reception in the private dining room of Legal Sea Foods, knocking over a friend who was doing our video along the way.  Sigh!

    YESSSSSSS…… FI’s mom hates me because I have a child, my mom won’t say much to her because shes a stay at home mom and feels like they have nothing in common (not my views at all), FI’s mom will think if she stayed home that maybe I would not have gotten preggers, my mom will think ‘maybe if you supported yourself you wouldn’t be making those comments’ and so on and so forth… lets just say, neither ladies show traits that they back down from confrontation. Horror.. and then the whole families will get involved.. and… well… romeo and juliet style… and we all know how that ends!

    My parents are divorced, and my dad’s remarried. SO’s parents are divorced and his mom’s remarried. I’m getting anxiety about where to seat everyone and crossing my fingers that they will all behave. Not to mention, we both have several cousins in their late teens/early 20’s and I’m worried about the open bar. UGH. I’m pretty much worried about everything.
