Sounds like she could have benefited from reading it!  Glad you acted responsible about it though!

the SAME thing happened to me and Future Mother-In-Law… when getting to the nitty gritty about who pays for what, Fiance typed out an email that said “traditionally the grooms family pays for…..”

well she didnt agree with what was on the list, so she proceeded to find every website on the internet where she was right and email it to me.

It’s actually become a fun game to me, because everytime I’m at a store with books, i go to the wedding section, find an etiquette or planning book, turn to that page that says who “traditionally” pays for what, laugh to myself, close it, and move on… because the two of us were always right.

Those books are so silly, my mom and Mother-In-Law were passing one back and forth as a joke during our wedding planning.  The best part was when my mom read a part about the bride’s parents paying for everyone’s hotel rooms- she called me in absolute panic!

I would be so tempted to type up a list of everything it says she shoudl be doing to help you and then say how happy you are that she’s going to XYZ! “That book was so helpful, thanks for explaining it all!” hehe

Oh gosh – I love etiquette books for that reason. People in general believe in bad etiquette!

I love the phrase, “But you are suppose to…<fill in the blank>” because it’s usually not right!
