Haha, these are pretty funny to read.  Although I am sure they are less funny at the time.  My Future Mother-In-Law has insisted we invite the Out of Town family to the rehearsal dinner…the problem is that is ~80% of the wedding, it is like a whole reception! A little much for me, but I am going to have lunch with the BM’s earlier so we have a quiet moment together before the madness begins.

She was baptized as a Methodist I think. My mom told us about religion when us kids were growing up but she always left it up to us to believe what we wanted to believe in. She bought this one book about all different kinds of religions my last year of high school and I think something must of clicked in her when she read about Judiasm (sp) because shortly after that book came into the house, then came the menorah and things.

She told me that my sister let her put something Jewish in her wedding a few years back. My Fiance thinks she’s crazy because we’re not Jewish and it just wouldn’t really make sense. But my mom is unstoppable and I think she’ll find some way to sneak something into the ceremony and reception–like I’ll find dradles in the favor boxes or something at the last minute. No joke!

@ hcritton – Hahahahaha!  I know it’s probably not so funny to you, but to me it’s the funniest thing I’ve read all day.  Good luck, and stay strong; I’ll be rooting for you.  🙂

This isn’t as odd or bad as other stories I’ve heard but, my Future Mother-In-Law requested that her son did not wear “a skirt” to the wedding……..btw, they will be wearing kilts. I’m from Scotland (born and raised) and my Fiance is of Scottish decent and it was his idea to wear a kilt, he’s stoked about the whole thing however, his Mother thinks this is awful. She kept calling it a skirt over and over and over, even after my Fiance told her that this is condisered offensive to Scottish people. I just put on a fake grin and laughed it off but, I really was a little offended, more by the fact that it seemed like she was going out of her way to repeatedly call a kilt a “skirt”.
