- Wedding: October 2011
Ok, so who agrees with me that this is really shitty??
My Future Mother-In-Law and her sister are both being so rude to us. They are pissed that we decided we’re going to Las Vegas to get married with no guests. However, we’re having a reception at home when we get back to celebrate for everyone! They have known about this for a few months actually since we announced our engagement and they just decided to blow up about it all today to us! It’s not their wedding so it isn’t their decision.
Also, my FI’s older sister booked a trip to Hawaii and she’ll be away the day we’re having our reception so now she’s upset, but she already knew when we were aiming to have our reception so it’s her fault! Still, they’re trying to make us feel guilty about it.
They also told us they think we shouldn’t allow Men to come to our wedding shower cuz it’s weird! WTF? We want everyone to be included and they aren’t even throwing the shower so they have no say in it whatsoever. My 2 sisters and my best friend are throwing the shower and they never said anything bad about including everyone!
To top it all off, my Future Mother-In-Law is inviting some of her friends to our reception that we’ve never even met before! That doesn’t seem right at all. She should have at least asked us first!
I really don’t want to let this all get to me and ruin a time that’s supposed to be filled with happiness, but it’s hard not to since they are paying for the reception (and I guess they feel they get to control everything cuz of it!)
We didn’t even want a reception that much, but they offered to throw us one so we feel that we’re compromising a bit by even having a reception. We are pretty non-traditional people and my Future Mother-In-Law feels we should have a traditional wedding I guess, but we would not be happy with a traditional wedding. We want our wedding ceremony to be less of a production and more about us. We love the idea of an intimate romantic wedding.
