I just had my wedding a couple of weeks ago and it was great, I’m happy to be married to my partner. As a gift to my husband, my now Mother-In-Law agreed to pay the reception portion of the bill. Which I didn’t want because I knew that it’d be something she’d hold over my head (See previous posts). Fast forward to last week, my husband and I go to her birthday dinner and she pulls up the bill in the waiting area of the restaurant where we’re supposed to be eating, which I thought was inappropriate timing. She then proceeds to insult my family by implying my family ran up the bill by ordering additional entrees to go (which they didnt’) along with other ridiculous comments. I told her I’d talk with the Venue Host.
I reach out to the venue host and she states that she’s out of the office for vacation via email. Three days laters I reach back out and she says she doesn’t have access to the bill she has to get it from her “controller”. Which I find incredulous because she was the one who originally composed a bill for me. The biggest problems with the bill are that the bill is lacking detail and itemization i.e Meals came out to $1600, but there wasn’t a break down of what. Gratuity was tacked on 3 times but it’s not explaining what for, etc. Another big problem is that we were charged for 53 guests meals when we only had 43 guests which I told her about before hand. My questions to you Bees are should I also request she remove charges for additional wedding chairs and reception chair coverings? Seeing that I told her that we were only going to have 43 guests, she charged us for 60-70 guests.
