eeek.  Sounds like you’re better off without him there with that type of attitude.

It sounds like his expectations of your wedding are different than the reality.  Perhaps (should he attempt to talk to you again) you or your Fiance could explain to him again that this will be a small wedding, and you don’t have money or space to invite extra people, and you don’t have the money for an open bar.

If he chooses not to attend, whatever.  Better than having him show up with his date anyway and then complaining about the bar all night.

I just wanted to pipe up and say that your fiance probably cannot inherit his debt… Unless he has cosigned for anything and agreed to be responsible, he should be off the hook.

One less thing to worry about 🙂

Let it go -don’t let it ruin your day.  So he doesn’t come -his loss.  My friend TOLD me that her new b.f. was coming, then invited him and bought plane tickets -before the invites went out!  We had a policy -not living together, no +1.  Just following Emily Post’s rules.  Luckily he bailed, and we didn’t have to foot a stranger’s meal.  Not that it’s about this, but it’s not like she would have given a bigger gift if he had come.

honestly stop communicating with these people. they obviously like the drama.

i have an aunt that is pulling this with her kid – at our no kids wedding. i told her once, my mom called me and cussed me out for telling her no. i told my mom from the beginning no kids and she pretended to be on my side and lied to me.

we dont want kids.

so personally if they want to make the day all about them – good riddance, stay at home dont ruin my day.

focus on your wedding and hit delete if there are any more messages. tell Future Mother-In-Law to do the same.

I haven’t been following this saga so I might be mistaken… but what I take away from this is that it sounds like you have a really supportive Future Mother-In-Law. She sounds as though she is championing your decisions and doing her best to make the day great for you guys. Everyone else might be sucking but I’d take an awesome Future Mother-In-Law and a few crappy tangential relatives over an awesome uncle and crappy Future Mother-In-Law any day. 🙂

 

Good luck… hopefully all these people just don’t come!
