We decided to go with assigned tables and it looked like we had finally perfected it as best we could, until Future Sister-In-Law was looking over it the other morning…
To clarify a bit, Fiance and I are having a sweetheart table and therefore decided to have my Maid/Matron of Honor and FI’s Best Woman (FSIL) sit with their SO’s, our MC and his wife (which is FI’s cousin) and another couple, which ended up being the MC’s brother. We figured it would be easiest to have them all close to the front, as they’ll all be speaking.
FCIL (MC)’s wife has a vendetta against FSIL’s SO. I won’t get into that, but she DOES NOT like his family. Future Sister-In-Law asked if the arrangement could be changed because she wasn’t sure if FCIL’s wife would make a stink about it, make it awkward, whatever. So, this woman can’t act like an adult and sit at the same table as this guy? She doesn’t have to sit beside him or talk to him. She doesn’t even have to look at him for all I care! Oh, but wait, Future Sister-In-Law doesn’t even know if she’ll be with her SO by the wedding, because they’re having problems.
Sigh… I know this is very small in the grand scheme of things, but I just wanted to vent a bit. Fiance and I tried to change the arrangement, but it looks like it won’t work any other way. Guests will just have to suck it up for that hour and a bit while they eat dinner and sit through the VERY short program.
SOO, anyone else go through little dilemmas like this? What would you have done?
