- Wedding: September 2018
Alright, here’s the thing (sorry, I’m kinda short tempered today…PMS and huuuge frustrations with future family). I live in Massachusetts. My Fiance is originally from Milwaukee, and we’re moving there in June so he can be with his family. He moved out here for me, so I’m moving out there for him. I’m cool with that.
I’m planning the wedding in Milwaukee. From Massachusetts. I have been there once, and we were not engaged yet so I wasn’t thinking, “Oh, I should go check out venues! Or caterers!” Or anything like that. We went so he could see his family, so I could meet them, and generally have a good time.
After we got engaged, his mom and his aunt (about whom I’ve bitched on here before) both called me up and were so excited, and volunteered to do things for me, because I, obviously, can’t. Then the aunt told me that his brother’s baby-momma wants to help too. I was like, Bet! Awesome! The more help I can get, the better!
I’ve asked the baby-momma and the aunt to do one thing. Look at two different venues for me and take pictures. I’ve asked Future Mother-In-Law to do two things, look at one venue and get the address of his family so I can send out invitations. No one has done anything; it’s been over a week since I asked and I haven’t heard a thing. Not even a, “Hey, I’m sorry, I was busy when I said I’d do it, but I’m going to do it soon, I promise.” I just get silence.
Do I have a right to be pissed? I mean, it’s not like I asked them to go choose all of my decorations, choose my dress, or anything like that. I’m not even asking them to go to a bridal show with me when we move there! Just take a few freaking pictures! Ughhhhhhhh
I feel like Bridezilla, but as everyone knows, venues book up fast. I’m seriously about to book a venue that I’ve only seen outside pictures of because it’s cheap (450 for NINE hours) and the woman I talked to about info on the place got married there and she said it was beautiful.
Am I out of bounds with feeling hurt and angry? Or maybe it’s just my PMS? Dunno.
Sorry this was so long, but even if one person responds, I’ll know I’m not crazy! Thanks for letting me get it off my chest!
p.s. I’ve talked to Fiance about this, and he is pissed too… because they volunteered..they offered to help, and won’t
