Just need to vent for a second.....So..FI calls me today and tells me that he just talked to his mom....she said that she been talking to her sisters and neices and nepher (so FI's aunts and cousins) and they, at this point, don't think they will be able to come to the wedding.
FI has been telling me from Day Freaking 1 that his family are all travelers and they would for sure be there at this can't miss event....wheras I was constantly saying...nope...they're not coming so I would rather not invite all these people and keep it super small and leave it at that.
So...part if the reason I did a group agreement was for all this family that FI was so freaking sure would be coming....now I'm getting nervous that we'll have to pay the penatlies for all the rooms we don't fill (luckily we didn't do a huge group agreement..only 16 rooms...but still)
Also...his mom was saying that they don't even know if they can afford to go....and she would rather just give us whatever $$$ they have and use it towards the wedding.....
is it wrong that I'm totally ok with that?
I feel bad for FI...but seriously...you've now known about the wedding since last July (7 months ago) and you had to know that one day your son would be getting married (not even talking to me...just in general) so...how have you not been saving AT ALL for this????
I know I have my mom and my 2 friends coming and I'm good (I've been saying that since the beginning...as long as my mom and my friend Dawn are there...I'm happy)
I just think FI had unrealistic expectations from the very beginning....and we've heard nothing from his Dad either (they're divorced). You would think his parents would be there....but...whatever.....
Now..I'm really done venting
