So I’m not sure if i’m looking for advice or to just vent a bit. My Fiance family is very nice, but I’m starting to feel a little…annoyed? I guess. We went over for dinner the other night and all his aunts were there (they all live close, and get together on a weekly basis). So they start talking about all the requests they’re going to make with the Dj. They’re making lists of songs! that kind of bothered me a bit…we’re making our own play/do not play list. but I kind of brushed it off… thinking they can request a few songs. Then, they’re talking about each song they’re going to dance to individually with my Fiance. There are 3 aunts, his mother and his grandmother. He is doing a mother/son dance…but all three of his aunts and his grandmother want their own special song with him. Not to just request, then dance to with all the guests…but like, alone on the dance floor, with him while everyone is watching. I thought they were kidding, but they were dead serious! Two of his aunts even said they want to be introduced with the wedding party! Again, i’m laughing…they’re not. Now, his family is not helping pay for any of the actual wedding. His parents are paying for the rehearsal dinner, but my parents , Fiance and I are paying for everything else. I almost left there feeling like his family is acting like this is their party and they can call the shots! They weren’t asking any of these things. they were TELLING us what’s going to happen that day. Some of the songs they want to request are ridiculous! His aunt wants to dance with him to “I will always love you”?
I’m not sure if they really expect me (and all our guests) to sit by for 20-30 minutes (or more!) while he takes his turn dancing with each of them! I’m a quiet person, so at the time I was kind of sitting there, staring in shock as they’re talking. He assures me that this will not happen, but the problem is, they really expect it to!! I think he needs to set them straight NOW so they’re not being told on the wedding day that their requests are not going to happen!
Ok got that off my chest. Anyone out there have any off the wall demands from their family, or Fiance family?
