@mzsimmons: UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE …My destination wedding consultant called me to inform me that my grandmother wants to upgrade her room reservation so that she can get a free ceremony !!!!! She also was trying to have her ceremony BEFORE MINE …. this is turning into such a circus. I can not believe her. Im so upset I can hardly see straight.
For all of you who wanted me to just work it out and talk to her, you have never met my grandmother. She is so selfish
THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE

Oh WOW. Just read through the whole thread – I can’t believe your grandma is really going to try and do this!! AND to call YOUR WEDDING CONSULTANT to get a free ceremony for herself! Honestly, get some of your relatives to talk to her and say its not appropriate to do this otherwise tell her she’s un-invited. I don’t think it’s fair for her to piggyback on your wedding day at all.

@mzsimmons: omg granny is out of control!!!!!!!!!!! somebody needs to be out in their place! Not cool. Her a** would be uninvited.. its not about anybody else but you & your fiance. She needs to stop trippin & stop trying to steal your thunder.

@mzsimmons: Wow! That is unbelievable! Maybe you should trick her and change your wedding date.

@bells: me too, lol.
Wow, I feel so bad for you. I have some people like this in my family, but it’s amazing that, in your family, it’s your grandma.
The bottom line is that you will be the radiant, happy, non-crazy bride… find comfort in that. Other than that, just remember that funny, borderline creepy stuff has to happen to SOMEBODY… you pulled the short straw from God on this one 😉

@mzsimmons: I just read this last post of yours and I am even more amazed than I was on page one… hang in there, girlie. Pretty soon this will all be over and you can look back and, hopefully, laugh.
But, I also have to say that it is BS she wants her ceremony first. Under NO CIRCUMSTANCE should that be allowed. PERIOD. I agree with trying to switch yours to the day before, if possible.

If there ever was a WTF moment, this is it.
I would def. be peed off. After all the planning you have done, someone swoops in and tries to tag along for a free ride. NOT COOL.

@mzsimmons: SOOOOOO… the wedding coordinator called me in total disbelief.She said she’s never had anything like this before… which Im sure she hasnt. She told me that she would make sure my grandmothers ceremony is after mine, on monday morning. Hopefully, just about everybody will be gone

Well….if no one gets through to you’re gma before your wedding….
The upside is…you won’t be date twinsies… and it’s a two days after yours….and like you said most everyone will be gone…
Still royally sucks…and I hope she changes her mind!

WOW! This sounds like something my FI’s Grandmother would do!!
At least it will be after yours and not during your reception!! I went to a wedding where the uncle of the Groom hijacked the officiant during the reception to marry him and his gf IN THE PARKING LOT!! Everyone was speechless! The Uncle and his new wife then proceeded to pretend like the reception was their reception as well!! So ridiculous! The Bride and Groom were furious!

@mzsimmons: From someone who also has a grandmother who can be…well, a selfish b*tch, I’m so sorry! Little old ladies can be vicious :(.

wow maybe she forgot what is it like to be a bride for the first time (only times for many girls)? and she wants to do it differently for hers since this is the forth time and had done it many different ways! but oh my this is inappropriate.
Pls voice out and do something about it, don’t suck it out ’cause you’ll feel bad and might feel bitter afterward, and you don’t want that ’cause you won’t be able to do it again!

So, this weekend I seen my grandmoother!!! I was cordial and and acted as if everything was OK. She called me on the phone, while I was on hold with another call, and did some talking about this and that, so I hurried her off the phone to get back to the important call that I was holding for.
The next thing I know… I have an email in my inbox from (guess who????) GRANDMA inapropriately titled, WHATS UP???? ……WTF. I open the email and she begins to state that I was cold to het and that if I was made that she was getting married in Jamaica “that was my problem”. (thats right, she said that) She also said that she did not have time for childish games and that she already paid for her trip and she doesnt have to do any activities with my group because she has already been there. She also stated that her wedding would be on Monday and she has asked some friends to come down and be a witness for her (like I care).
First of all… the nerve of her! Second Im pretty sure I said I was on hold. Third I really feel like she is having a guilty complpex…
I havent responded to her email yet, because I think its childish that she emailed me instead of calling me! When I do decide tto rspond I will be calling her and letting her know that I could care less that she is gettting married, that she did piggy back on my wedding, and last wtf ever… Im so over it.
This situation is so draing…as if i dont have other things to deal with! Arent you glad you dont have a hijacking granny!
(sorry if I have errors, I was typing off the top of my head in a rage)
