- Wedding: October 2018
Hey bees, in a bit of a tricky situation here would love some advice/perspective. If I’m being bratty/bridezilla-esque please put me in my place!
So we will be having some out of town family at our wedding (close family, just had moved away from my home state). About 15 guests or so. Our wedding is on a Saturday, right before lunch, and is about a 30-40 minute drive (at a park) from our house. It is very largely a DIY wedding so we are setting up ourselves (and with the help of immediate family).
Anyways, we decided the easiest thing to do would be to rent a cabin at the park for the weekend, have everything there and ready the night before, and spend the night and get ready in the cabin the next morning, and be there nice and early to start set up. So we were planning on heading up Friday evening to get all of our ducks in a row.
Come to find out, all of our out of town guests are coming in on that Friday, and they all want to hang out. It was an oversight on my part, I probably should have worked that into the schedule I just wasn’t thinking. So, I suggested everyone come out to the park we’d order food and hang out at the cabin. That way nobody gets lost on the way in the morning. But, no, everyone wants to come see our house. Understandable, and doable as long as they come earlier in the day so we can get to the park in the evening.
Well, many of the flights aren’t coming in until the evening and they wouldn’t even be showing up to our house until like 6-7pm at night. Others are coming in the afternoon and would like to hang out through the night. I told my mother that I just didn’t think we could swing it. She told me that I was being pretty selfish, that people are coming all this way and they want to see me/where I live etc, and I can’t even host them. I really don’t have a problem hosting them I just wish it wasn’t late in the evening the night before our wedding…
I don’t know bees. I’m not sure what to do. Do I just suck it up and eat the cabin rental fees, and just bring everything out to the park in the morning? I understand my mother’s point, I really do, and I’d really love to show everyone around/my apartment etc, the issue is literally just the logistics and scheduling of it all!
What would you do bees!?
