I cannot share anything with my Future Mother-In-Law that I dont want everyone to know about.  I’ve sent her pix in confidence that have been fwded to the entire fam, everything gets shared.  I know she doesnt do it to be spiteful but I still feel like I cant share wedding ideas, etc but I want some things to be surprise.


In this case tho be happy that she is making those awkward convos for you… I am having guest list drama that I dont want to deal with.

My mom is the same way. Even if you give her a non-committal answer she will just hear what she wants to, and tell people what she wanted to hear. LOL.

I really feel like I will have to keep much of the planning a secret to keep drama at a minimum.

While we were planning, my Mother-In-Law posted a copy of our wedding invitation to the church bulletin board to invite everyone.  I feel your pain.

Same thing with my Future Father-In-Law ….. he tells people that we’re not inviting them, then once we finalize the guest list he tells them that they are now invited and then tells us how happy they were to be invited now (we haven’t sent out invites), then he goes and books a block of hotel rooms for Out of Town guests and tells them where to stay ….. but there’s only 3 couples from Out of Town, the “blocks” can only be for a minimum of 10 rooms, and the 3 couples all have very different hotel needs (1 has to have pet-free hotel due to extreme allergies, 1 will only stay in high-class hotels, and 1 is on a very strict income and needs somewhere cheap).  It’s really annoyinng!!

Haha my dad sent a picture of me in my dress to his entire side of the family. I don’t think he realized that I might not want them to see it, but I know he was excited. 🙂 At least it means they care! lol
