- Wedding: June 2011
So, I’m happy to say that Future Mother-In-Law and Future Father-In-Law will be paying for the rehearsal dinner. YAY! I didn’t think they would offer to pay anything, but they did! So Future Mother-In-Law asked the other day for the names of those that will be at the dinner with their addresses. I emailed her everything she needed. I don’t know about you, but I was thinking the rehearsal dinner was for those in the wedding, plus grandparents. Well, I got an email back from Future Mother-In-Law saying that there will be more because she wants to invite her sisters (she has 5 of them) and their husbands because they are family, as well as her cousins and aunt that are coming from out of state. She has more than doubled the people that I was thinking for the dinner. I don’t care if she has them, but then she needs to stop complaining about how much dinner will cost them! She keeps asking Fiance and I what we wanted to have (she got a list from the restaurant to narrow it down to have everyone choose from), we gave her suggestions, but then she would say she wanted something else. The things she wanted were more expensive, then she would say well this is what I want, but I don’t know if I’ll offer it to everyone because of the price! Seriously?! Oh and she chose the restaurant, we said we would have been fine with just a BBQ! I emailed her and told her that if she wanted to have her family for the dinner then that was fine and up to her, but I didn’t want them at the actual rehearsal of the ceremony. Was that wrong? I don’t want an extra 30 people at the rehearsal, why would they want to come to the wedding if they know exactly how it’s going to be anyway?
I’m appreciative that they are paying, but I hate that she keeps adding people to come to the dinner and then coming back to Fiance and I complaining about the price and how much it is going to cost her. Thanks for letting me vent, had to get it out or I probably would have yelled at her!
