As far as the apartment goes, I know how you feel. My Fiance works late, so when we need stuff for the house or do to projects, we only get the weekends. I had people want to come and see the house when we first moved, even though we had a ton to do. I eventually just told them that we were not ready to have anyone over yet, and I will call them as soon as it is presentable. I am very picky about my house…so I worked my ass off to make sure that it was ready pretty fast! Just tell them you’d rather meet somewhere else since you are not fully settled yet. They might think you are crazy, but it is YOUR PLACE. ๐Ÿ™‚

You might need to put your foot down about the rehersal dinner. Tell her you visited the place and looked at the menu, and it is not somewhere that everyone is going to enjoy. I think the key there is to tell her that the prices are higher than the Olive Garden, and you would really like to cut some corners and save a little.

That’s really frustrating, I’m sorry!! Just focus on your fiancé and try to not get too stressed out about everything with his family being perfect. If that’s how they want to present themselves to your family, then there isn’t much you can do. Just tell your parents beforehand. 


Furniture isn’t what makes a home. Craigslist has a ton of stuff for free and whatnot.


Everything will work itself out in time…it just is going to be a little rough for awhile. It seems like it will really work itself out though. Try to focus on the positives, though ๐Ÿ™‚

@Ka393: Breathe deep…

I can understand your frustration and yes I am sure it can be hard to more, plan a wedding and deal with a Mother-In-Law that seems to have her moments of being unreasonable. Focus on the fact that you are going to marry the man you love and hope that it will help you get through the craziness
