Started having this conversation with Mother-In-Law when we got engaged.. 3 years later we still have it.

Mil- “I’m good at taking directions! Anything you need- let me know!!”

Me- “Well, if you could [insert instruction here].”

Her- “I can do that.. but I think this would be better…”

sister:What do you mean you’re not having a wedding cake?

Me: We are having a dessert table instead.

Sister:That goes against family tradition, I’ll buy the cake myself and bring it!


Same sister, different conversation….

sisiter: what do you mean you’re not inviting (blank)?

Me: If I invite her then I have to invite the rest of their family and that’s 12 people.

sister: well, I already told them that they are invited so you better send an invitation.

Me: first you have to give me the money for 12 peoples meals.

sister: nevermind then.

All from my FI’s grandma, who apparently has only ever attended ultra-traditional church weddings and wedding-hall receptions:

– “Did I hear something about *orange* dresses?” (My Maid/Matron of Honor wore orange. She looked gorgeous.)

– “And everything is going to be *on the beach*?” (Yep, everything. Even dinner. And dancing.)

– “What do you mean you’re *not having cake*???!!!!” (Nope, we’re serving Key lime pies.)

Well, I did end up getting a small “grandma’s cake” (instead of a groom’s cake). And then the dog took a big bite out of it before dessert was served!  Hahahaha!!!!

Madre- “Hon, you need to let Future In-Laws know what you want and don’t want. Don’t let anyone tell you two what you should do for your wedding,  it’s your wedding.” Then in the same breath, “By the way, you’re not doing a parents’ dance right? I’d feel awkward being single and all.”

Oooh, Ma.

My mother on music for the wedding… ” Well just make sure they play ‘Superfreak’…it is not a wedding without ‘Superfreak'” Really mom? I didn’t know that was a necessity at the wedding.  She kept saying it and then we met with the DJ who told us that Superfreak is not always a good choice….It is such a joke between us know that naturally we HAVE to play it.

My personal favorite: “Don’t worry about it. It’ll all work out”.

Apparently problems fix themselves.

my dad (dad, yes, my father has an opinion on the colors):   you know red and blue dont go together, right?


inlaws (just about all of them):  what do you mean you arent having a buffet?  what are people supposed to eat? (it was a formal, sit down 6 course meal.  apparently in mexican culture, that translates into “starving our guests”)


his grandmother:  Im surprised your father (a pastor) is willing to marry you outdoors.  he must know thats not sanctioned by the church.

me: we’re not catholic

her: what do you mean youre not catholic…

me:  eye roll


aunt in aw:  you arent having vanilla or chocolate cake? people wont like it if is not chocolate or vanilla.  (carrot cake, his fave, and almond pound cake with cumquat and passion fruit filling) 


a friends girlfriend:  why are your shoes red on the bottom?  that doesnt match your wedding.  (firstof all, it does.  second of all, they’re louboutins)
