- Wedding: September 2012
I just have to vent about this little situation. My FI’s family is the most self-centered group of people I have ever met!
Last night while I was at FI’s house, I was talking to his mom (who drives me CRAZY!!). We were talking about the engagement party that is this August and she asked if I would be really upset if FI’s cousin (one of my BMs, who is super sweet) did not come to the party. I was under the assumption that she was going to be out of town or something, so I said “oh…that’s fine, if she can’t make it I understand.” Then Future Mother-In-Law says to me, “ok, she won’t be able to come because thats the night of our church picnic. Grandma jut signed up to work a booth and we think its more important for grandma to be at the party than *FI’s Cousin*.” WTF!?! Its not like the grandma is old and dying and won’t be around for the wedding. They just think FI’s cousin isn’t important enough to be at the engagement party!! Do they not have friends that could take over the shift for grandma!? Why couldn’t the grandma tell the picnic coordinator that she couldn’t work this year!?!
I sent FI’s cousin a facebook message saying that I was sorry she couldn’t come to the party and that I hoped she could come for at least part of the party and I have a feeling by me sending her a message like that (I wasn’t mean or rude) Future Mother-In-Law will accuse me of being a bridezilla (which is a whole other story!).
I just don’t understand why they told FI’s cousin, and my bridemaid, that she couldn’t go to the party because they think its more important that grandma be there! People blow my mind!
