Anyone else dealing with angry family?

Jenesis, I hope I did not offend anyone about my FMIL being irish. I am actually Korean/Chinese American and my parents are not taking part in my wedding at all. Heck, they have refused to accept Mark(FI) therefore I have not spoken to them in months! My rents do not accept the cultural difference between FI and I. Oh well.

Don't worry. I'm not sensitive like that.

Dee, sounds like you have even more problems than I do! Isn't it so crazy? I'm sorry about your parents...it's sad for you, but it is also their loss. I hope all the parents involved realize eventually what they are doing and come to their senses. They think they know best, but really all they are doing is pushing you farther away, which is the probably the opposite of what they are trying to do. If you are ever in NYC let me know and we can meet up! It totally helps to vent...esp. to people that not only understand, but seem to be going through the same thing! YAY for this thread : )

I haven't been back here in a while b/c I've been crazy busy with a trial. Anyways, Dee, it turns out that it's really just my one sister whose causing problems. I too have adopted the dgas motto and am moving on. I really believe that this day is for us (the ones getting married) and anyone that wants to try to drag any of us down b/c of their own issues isn't worth getting upset about. I haven't spoken to my sister in a while, but when I do it's going to be really simple - Don't Come. Simple as that. I've been involved in enough weddings to know that you cannot possibly please everyone so I figure I'm doing my wedding the way I want. I agree too, if they're not footing the bill who are they to tell us how to do things? Dee, I'm sorry you have such a nasty FMIL! For the record, my FMIL is just as difficult, however due to a big spat between her and my FI a couple years ago it's no longer an issue. I don't think I'll ever understand why folk such as your FMIL insist on butting in and pushing their child and future daughter in law away. I think you just have to see it for what it is - her loss!

We were totally planning on doing a room block, but then Dreams PV was running a promotion where the rooms were a lot cheaper than the room block rate ($106/person/night vs. $129). So we told everyone to book a.s.a.p. and most people did! Now we don't need enough rooms to let us get a block, so we never got one. I think I have a couple straglers that never booked - but they're on their own! All of our family is at Dreams, and most everyone else is as well.
