I just need to vent and have somebody tell me to chill out!
So, my Future Mother-In-Law is….a bitch…Not the best person. She’s a selfish person and promises to do everything, but then backs out on everything. She said she would be taking care of the rehearsal dinner, so she’s been looking around for a place the last few months. She found one place that she “LOVED” (even though she’s never been there for an event) and when we went to try the food Fiance and I hated it. Fiance talked to her and she said that I need to look for another place and gave me her budget. I sent her a list of places that I know are great and are even under budget. One of them is a restraunt, but it’s about 30 minutes from the church. Luckily they are building a new place that’s much closer, so Future Mother-In-Law said she’d check out the new location. They don’t open until the 15th and she said her and her mother are going to have lunch there to try the food and talk to them about having the rehearsal dinner there. I thought that was great and was glad that she was actually coming through on something.
Then she says that as long as we all like the food and decide to have the dinner there, she will not book them until mid to late June….because she wants the staff at the new location to “get adjusted.” wtf?! She went on to say that she’s really concerned that somebody else will book the party room before us and we’ll be out of luck. I really don’t understand her reasoning! Somebody help me understand this! If you’re worried that the room will be booked soon…THEN BOOK IT ASAP!
Around here there aren’t too many options for a rehearsal dinner. We’ll be having about 50 people and it’s hard to find a good place that’s not over in St. Louis (we’re in IL). My parents are worried too that she’ll back out on paying for the rehearsal dinner, so they agreed that if she doesn’t book by mid June, they will take over and plan and pay for the rehearsal dinner. (Bless their hearts, they want everything to be perfect).
I guess I just needed to get that off my chest and feel free to tell me to relax! If it wasn’t for her constantly doing things like this it wouldn’t be a big deal. But if it doesn’t benefit HER, she won’t do it.
