- Wedding: September 2015
We’re getting married September 6 (12 weeks!!!), set the date and booked the venue LAST September, a year in advance. FMIL booked a trip to Europe this past March with 2 FSILs who are also bridesmaids- they leave at the end of this month and aren’t returning until AUGUST 10. This has left me only 2 available weekends to host my bridal shower (because having it when they’re gone would make me look awful). Also, Future Mother-In-Law dragged her feet in ordering the girls’ bridesmaids dresses, so they’re not going to arrive until after they leave, which means they won’t be able to get sent to alterations until 3 weeks before the day.
ALSO- fiance’s cousin on mom’s side just got married in May. His wife told me that half the people on that side of the family didn’t even RSVP, so she gave her Mother-In-Law (my fiance’s aunt- who’s also going on the trip) the job of tracking down her family who didn’t respond to get the rsvp’s. Now with all them being gone right when invitations will be going out and not returning until after the RSVP deadline I will have no idea how to track down the people on their side who don’t respond (all of them are in LA, we’re in SF). It’s such a mess
