Yep.  I, too, am related to a-holes.  But it looks like you only have 3 days of a-holery left.  Keep your chin up, and I hope your wedding goes great. 🙂

 Yep! I know it’s hard, but just try not to let them bring you down.

What has really helped me is thinking “I’m starting my OWN, NEW family and I won’t have to deal with THESE people as much anymore!”

Just yesterday, my mom yelled at me on the phone and hung up, screened any future calls and then sent an email saying she was calling 1/3 of our guest list and telling them not to come.  Yeah, she’s an asshole.

It seems I’m only related to a-holes through marriage, which is okay because I dont really have to claim them-

my cousin’s wife? B*tch.

my fbil’s wife? B*tch.

my fmil? B*tch.

yup, that’s about it.

I’ve been really lucky family wise (we’re really small, that may help), but I am constantly finding myself surrounded by other assholes.  My new mantra is “The wolves will turn on themselves.”  Seriously, given enough time, they’re batting 1000.

Without getting into details… let’s just say the only reason my oldest brother is coming to my wedding is because it would hurt my parents and I don’t need the drama/guilt from them during planning or for the rest of my life. He’s not really a part of my life now and there’s really no need for him to be part of my future. He’s not a nice person. It’s just a fact.

Oh! Me! We had so many horrible things happen to us during planning because some of our family members/friends just got really weird and mean. It was awful!

I had alwasy thought that a majority of people were related to at least one a-hole.  Maybe not in their immediate family, but somewhere sprinkled in their extended family.  I’ve been so lucky that my family has been amazing throughout this process.  Its my friends that suck.  There are 3 friends that I can’t wait to never speak to again!  Weddings definitely do bring out the good, bad and the ugly.. its unfortunate that they bad and the ugly seem to be magnified when we’re dealing with so much!

I know exactly what you are talking about!  Some of his family pitched a fit because their invitation came later than the others, all amiled at the same time, and he refused to come for this non-vite.  My family with attitude abut how many people they are bringing…what is 1 or 6 I ask you.  You don’t think you need to come up with a better answer than that?  And you freak out when I ask for clarification.  I don’t know what it is about weddings that makes people act so ridiculous!
