- Wedding: August 2013
Just needed to vent here.
My Fiance and I are paying the mojority of our wedding ourselves. Our families are helping with details such as the cake, photography etc.
We wanted to keep our wedding very intimate and small (no more than 100 people. However, my Future Father-In-Law had 10 siblings. I asked my Fiance if he is inviting ALL his aunts and uncles, and he decided not to, seeing as he doesn’t get along well with all of them. He chose a handful that he is very close to, and that’s it.
However, EVERY time we go to FI’s parent’s place, they bring up the guest list. Basically, my Future Father-In-Law wants us to invite ALL his siblings, because he feels “it will be a good way for Mom to see all her kids in one place, since that doesn’t happen very often”. UH, HELLO?! Our wedding is NOT a family reunion, and I HATE that he wants to treat it as such!
Also, every time we see FI’s family, they say things along the lines of ,”so and so was asking if they are going to be invited, what do we tell them?”. I finally lost it and told them that when they are asked questions about invitations, to tell people to WAIT for their invite, and then they will know that they are invited!
Basically, I am getting frustrated, because this is OUR weeding and we want to invite ONLY the people WE WANT to invite. I am sick of hearing about it, and I am sick of answering questions and feeling like I need to justify myself on it. The worst part is, the wedding is over a year away, and the invitations won’t be sent for a VERY long time!
Anyways, thanks for reading. Needed to get that out 🙂
