- Wedding: June 2013
at least not anymore. I was secretly hoping all along that FH’s family would foot the bill at one of my favorite places, it would be an evening where I could treat my out of town friends ( we have no bridal party) to a good meal and a night where I didn’t have to worry about embarrassing things happening.
Unfortunately, it looks like that will not happen. FH’s family has been ‘iffy’ about planning the entire event from the start and as we are 23 days out I’m wondering if we should just let them know it’s off. We cannot get into our venue until 5 pm on the day before and have at least a few hours to set up that evening. That is reason #1.
Reason number two is that I honestly think sitting down with them at ALL that week is a bad idea, the way they’ve treated FH and myself is horrible and all of a sudden they are iffy about hosting a dinner for possibly 10 people at a nice restaurant when they paid for 30+ people at FBIL’s wedding earlier this year.
I don’t want to appear like I’m turning down ‘a lovely dinner with family’ but am not sure quite what to do at this point. Should we just say we’re too busy setting up the day before and would rather have a quiet dinner out together or at home?
I honestly thought they’d step up and do this for their son but it’s been nothing but vague answers and pulling teeth to honestly find out if they are actually hosting a dinner for us or not. I’m so sick of this drama and am very tempted to just say ‘no’ and excuse ourselves in the name of decorations and take out chinese or something. Not to mention the fact my entire family does not want to sit down with his because of the drama.
