hello ๐Ÿ™‚ do you think they got excited with your wedding and then got carried away?its very strange its almost like they need the limelight rather than putting their energy and enthusiasm into helping with your day. If your Fiance doesnt get it you may just need to be a bit sneaky and get your invites out first….as a guest if I had to make the choice I would choose the wedding over a renewing of vows (and 31st anniversary whats that about???) just continue to plan your day unless you are close enough to express your feelings directly to your Future Mother-In-Law xx

@twiny2005:  You are NOT being selfish, I would be so upset if I were you. Perhaps your fiance Mom has issues about ‘losing’ him and the spotlight being on you even though the spotlight should be on you. I agree with princesslea get your invites out asap but perhaps sit down and talk with your inlaws. Also try again to explain how you feel to your fiance – he must feel really torn in this situation.

Are they planning a big to do over the renewal? Honestly, get your invites out first. People will be more excieted over a wedding rather than a renewal. and they will end up looking silly with a date that is so close.

@twiny2005:  What I think this is might be that they might have caught up in your weddingbliss/ fever and decided to renew their vows? See it on the bright side, sure they are getting a renewal but you guys are getting married. Don’t be jealous/selfish, be happy for them, and just focus on being a happy bride on your day since you can’t change any day except your own ! ๐Ÿ™‚

When given the choice of attending a 31st ann. vow renewal, or a wedding, the wedding’s going to win (almost) every time. You can e-mail save the dates this week (they don’t have to be complicated), following up with a printed one. 

Like other bees, I think they got wedding fever, and don’t realize how this could affect you and your FI’s day.

I completely agree with PP that they probably did get so caught up in the wedding excitement that they planned the renewal without thinking of how it might affect your big day. You still have time to send save the dates so I would do it, like yesterday, and then make sure you get your invites out early too. I am sure most people would pick the wedding if they had to choose.
