Grrr...the beginning of MIL drama

Recommended Posts

Wow. Thank you all so much for your words of support and understanding. FMIL has quieted down for a moment so FI is planning on leaving it alone. OH NO! Its not over....This will resurface. And I will do my best to take as much of your great advice as I can, including having FI handle it and standing my ground. As someone else mentioned, if it was easy just to invite my mother and my FIL's, I would. But its not that easy, my mother wouldn't be able to make it (nor do I want her to), I don't want one set of parents and not the other, and we really don't want to celebrate the equivalent of getting our "driver's licenses." BTW, thanx Becks, that was such a great analogy. I'm definitely stealing it.

 

Sorry for posting in an inaccurate forum. Thank you for moving it.

 

Again, thanks for everything. I'm hoping this is settled very soon so we can get back to being excited for what's to come and focus our energies on the positive.

Yeah, it will resurface because your FMIL sounds very manipulating. Calling you trashy?? So the only way you can be not-trashy is to do what she wants you to do? I hate that kind of stuff and it pushes me to do the exact opposite. You better stand your ground now or your entire life with MIL will be like that.

We invited Dh's 2 sets of parents and my parents. We had a lunch afterwards and that was the end of it.

 

Everyone was happy and it wasn't a spectacle. I didn't invite any siblings (that would have been another 15 people).

Two weeks before our wedding, I "kidnapped" my fiance after work, drove to the airport and hopped on a plane to Vegas. When we got there, I had a limo waiting to drive us to the Clerk's office (which is open until midnight there) and in 15 minutes, we had our license. Then a quick ride over to the Graceland Wedding Chapel and we were married with Elvis! It was hysterical. We didn't exchange rings, said some generic vows, and had the legal part behind us. It was a really fun evening, but definitely not our REAL wedding. That was in Cabo last Saturday. wink.gif Moral....Don't include anyone else. Just the two of you for that part. That way it won't feel like you had 2 weddings.

If that Monday is important to you for the date I would precaution to arrive at least two days prior just in case you run into some airline difficulties - they are really cutting flights back plus overbooking, mother nature or mechanical issues have a way of making people not arrive till the next day. How bad would that stink if you arrived at the resort after your scheduled time?

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
