- Wedding: July 2015
So in a nutshell, both my Future Father-In-Law, Future Mother-In-Law & Future Sister-In-Law are completely ignoring the wedding….to the point of even ignoring the subject when the wedding has been brought up. I feel a little hurt by this….I don’t think they have asked us or talked to us about the wedding in about 4 months, even though we are more or less in full planning mode. Nothing. Nada. Ziltch.
To put this into perspective, Fiance and I live on the other side of the world to both sets of parents so we skype once a week at the weekend at the very least. Whenever either Fiance or I bring up the wedding (which isn’t that often) they seem to change the subject. I don’t think it’s a case that they are aganist the wedding at all, as I get on really, really well with them both. However, I do think it maybe because they are think that we are going to ask them to help financially with the wedding. We don’t need any financial help at all and they aware of this. My parents are chipping in for everything so at the moment costs are being split 50/50.
My parents have been a God send to us, travelling to wedding Fayres, checking out venues for us etc. I have tried to include my FFILs but to no such luck. I even said that we would send over the guest list to them to see if there was anyones else they wanted us to invite. But Future Mother-In-Law just said “Why would we want to see it. It’s your wedding”. I know some of you are going to say, that them being involved is going to be a good thing – no clashing of opinions etc.
I’m just a puzzled that they don’t ask us once in awhile how things are ticking along.
