- Wedding: January 2012
Has anyone else felt like this? I’m to the point where I just want to get the wedding over with. Most of my excitement has been ruined by FI’s family.
His control freak mother has pitched fits and screwed with the guest list and even caused us to completely change our plans. Even then, she has still made things difficult.
His brother has thrown a tantrum about how much renting his tux from men’s warehouse will cost him, so Fiance was sweet enough to let him wear a suit instead, though his brother didn’t deserve it with his behavior lately.
His sister-in-law (which is also unfortunately my totally unreliable MOH) has failed to do ANYTHING she has said she would do at any point. In fact, because of her laziness I didn’t even end up having a bachelorette party. (She was planning it with the Future Mother-In-Law and another Future Sister-In-Law, but never even BOTHERED to include my two other BM’s in the planning) She hasn’t listened, and the one time we got into an arguement (over something different) she proceeded to go off on me telling me she’s “doing so much” for my wedding. She has literally, done, NOTHING. At all. I wish I had never asked her to be my Maid/Matron of Honor. It was a waste of time.
On top of that I’m giving them money each month for dogfood, (long story short – they were too busy spending money on video games than getting THEIR dogs fixed, so along came puppies. Our dogs are there temporarily because we because proud puppy owners unexpectedly, we are looking for a place to move since our apartment doesn’t allow pets) and I also pay for any and all shots, vet visits, and heartworm meds. It doesn’t bother me, they’re my babies, and I adore them. However, Maid/Matron of Honor and Future Brother-In-Law have continued to be irresponsible and their dog has had MORE puppies, so after that happened, Future Brother-In-Law threw his tantrum over $146 for a tux rental and later had Maid/Matron of Honor demand over DOUBLE what I already pay them each month, blaming it on our pups. (funny, considering I paid a LOT more to be in their wedding than they are to be in mine – not to mention she had me in a full length satin gown with a shawl outside in 110 degree weather.)
I put my foot down and told them if they would start being responsible and get their dog FIXED they wouldn’t be in this situation, and that I’ll gladly pay whatever is needed for my dogs, but NOT for the whole ****ing housefull.
I’m sorry guys, I know this is kind of a disjointed rant, and it sadly doesn’t even cover half of the stunts his family members have pulled, but I’m so tired of his family and their constant BS. They only care about themselves. I feel angry and bitter and resentful, and flat out unhappy. I don’t want to feel this way.
Has anyone else gotten to their breaking point? How did you handle it?
