I am so sorry.

I think you should write a book and make a movie.

I hope all goes well.

Wow, does not sound fun. Just remember the goal for the weekend is to keep the drama away from the bride. We’d much rather see a post from you saying, “here is all the crazy hijinx that we kept from the bride” than a post from her saying, “I can’t believe my day was ruined…”

Take lots of deep breaths and Smile…

Hang in there!

At least to point #2 – that will only be during the ceremony.  During the reception she’ll have you at her side (assuming you’re not seated separately).  I’ve been in this situation myself, and in my experience, being alone during the ceremony doesn’t matter at all – it’s not like you’re there to mingle.  It’s only at the reception that it’s important to have people to talk to, and she will!

Yikes!! That’s a loaded day for you. Please remember to SMILE through it all. A smile, when looked upon by someone else, has a way of calming them down. (Even if it’s just a little. So trust me, you will need it!)

I am really sorry to hear about the bride’s father’s behaviour. That is very lowly of him. I can’t believe some people rather have someone’s blood on their hands to save their so-called ‘dignity’ than to let their children simply be happy with their S.O.s!

Im so sorry. Sometimes life is funny though and surprises you. I always say “Expect the worst, hope for the best.” Even if you and NotFroofy dont have the best time ever, the most important thing is that your son and his new wife do. You might be taking the brunt of the drama that day/night but hopefully it will not affect the joy that your son feels on his wedding day. I hope everything goes okay. Please give us an update after Sunday…and good luck!!

Oh man. I’m sorry you have to deal with all this on what should be such a happy day.

I hope your son ends up with a wonderful day regardless of all the drama.

Yeesh, that’s a lot to deal with! Load up on valium, xanax or the like, lol! Good luck! Be sure and come back to tell us how it all went! Hopefully things will go smooth!

I bet we could, but let’s not. Here’s hoping for a stress free day for all!

Holy crap! That’s a lot of bs, but I had some similar issues and everything really went fine except for one little thing, which my entire family kept from me and boy did I appreciate it.

This sounds awful, but it will be a wonderful day for your son and daughter-in-law. Anything you can protect them from, any of this drama you can hide from them is a blessing and a gift.

I am so sorry you have to deal with this! 

As for “a family that puts the fun in dysfunctional,”  I love this phrase and I’m sorry you have the chance to use it.

 

For #1: Mentally prepare for the big hug with a big plastered on smile. It’s amazing what even a pretend smile can do.

For #2: Sitting alone during the ceremony is no big deal at all, for my brother in law’s wedding the rest of the family was in the wedding and I was sitting up front all by myself until the processional. No big. Don’t worry about her so much (but it’s sweet that you do).

For #3: I have no advice for you. That is just wrong.

For #4: I could not stop laughing when I read that post the first time. Hopefully her cluelessness can add some comic relief for you that day (something that not everyone will notice, but something that will make you smile).

For #5: Get a new haircut and/or get it “done” for the wedding.

For #6: Well, it is what it is.

 

I hope it goes the best possible way, and I hope you can enjoy yourself at least a little bit.
