- Wedding: July 2011
So we were at a wedding last night for FI’s cousin. (We were going to have the EXACT same name after I get married in July, but not anymore! *tears* ) She had the most beautiful, fun and rustic wedding. Everything was perfect!
Pie Bar, Delicious Dinner, Tear-jerking ceremony. Absolutely wonderful!
Except for the same old from Future Father-In-Law and FSMIL. Mr. J and I had been wondering for a couple weeks if his step-siblings had been invited and we could see them not being invited, since they’re not that close with his cousin, etc. And to invite them means another 9 people on the guestlist! (+9 for open bar +9 for food +1 table, the room was already at capacity!)
When we got to the ceremony, they hardly acknowledged our presence. Like, COME ON. It’s your SON and his fiance. How do you NOT talk to them? Or even say HI? (they didn’t say ONE word to me!)
Mr. J asked Future Father-In-Law when we got there if they were coming (not if they were invited. Tried to be somewhat polite) and Future Father-In-Law said no. Then FSMIL leaned over and said “they weren’t INVITED”
So wow. Ok, she’s a little bitter. (It’s her kids! I would semi-understand.)
We got to the reception (and WOW it was gorgeous!) and about 10 minutes in, I couldn’t spot Future Father-In-Law and FSMIL (after they sat at a different table and then moved to another one). We assumed they went out for a smoke, but 30 min later when everyone was eating, they were still gone. Yep. They LEFT. They didn’t talk to ANYONE and sat there with a frown/mean face all evening. I seriously can’t believe it. But if you knew FSMIL, you would totally understand.
So when Unc. C came by (FOB) to say hi, he mentioned how they were SUPER happy Mr. J and I could make it and how they were happy we didn’t get involved with the whole invite confusion (with Future Father-In-Law and FSMIL). Apparently, they invited Future Father-In-Law and FSMIL, but not her kids. Due to the space capacity of the room (it was pretty crowded with the # that was there!) and they picked the people who meant the most to them to be there. TOTALLY understandable!
He went on to say that when FSMIL sent the RSVP back, she put ELEVEN (11) names on it! OMGHHKP!
