- Wedding: September 2013
Today my mom casually tells me that my stepdad booked a country club by their house to hold our rehearsal dinner. We had already planned a casual BBQ in their backyard, because we have a large number of family members attending and we are paying for it ourselves and are trying to keep costs down. I understand if they decide they don’t want to host the dinner at their home, but don’t you think they would consult us first. I never even considered the country club! It will be expensive as it has to be catered. Plus it is where my mom and my stepdad got married. They have a miserable marriage and honestly I just don’t want any of memories mingling with theirs. We are going to opt for a really awesome mexican restaurant instead.
Also, I found out the other day that my mom went behind my my back and uninvited one of my guests! It was her ex boyfriend that I am still close with. I asked her ahead of time if she was okay with me inviting him and she said it was fine! Well then she called him and told him her husband would be angry if he saw him at the wedding and that he shouldn’t come. I found this all out from my brother, she was never planning on telling me!
My parents are generously paying for half of our wedding, but they seem to think it entitles them to make decisions without even consulting us!
