BIL newly engaged and getting married FIRST!

Recommended Posts

FI just got back from visiting the family. He said his brother barely mentioned the wedding, probably because he knew his brother was a little ticked stealing his thunder. ( I didn't know FI was upset, he just told me.) Makes me feel a little better knowing that I am not crazy..lol.


My FI is the one who has to manage this situation. The kids are teens, so they are excited. They have to come. If FI pays for them, then HE is paying. I refuse.

No, you're not crazy. His brother should have known better then to pull crap like this. It isn't fair to you or your FI, who have spent time planning out this wedding in detail, to go through this. I hate to say it, but I am not sure what type of wedding he plans on having with only having what like 5 months to plan it....with little to no money....since your FI is paying for HIS kids to go to your wedding. I can just see it being one of those that we are talking about in the thread, things you swore you would never let happen at your wedding. Like blue jeans and pigs in a blanket. I am sorry. I am still pissed your FI is still going to pay for his brothers kids to come. Haven't you heard the saying, "what's his is mine, and what's mine is mine!" HaHa. Good Luck!

    • 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?
