I am sorry I am not alone in my family dilemma. I do agree that friends are easier to deal with then family, I guess they are our friends for a reason.
Well here is my update, after much stress, and alot of fighting between Everton and I, Everton's whole family (except his brother) worked it out and paid the rest of their trips.
I don't know how it happened but I think Everton told them that if they didn't find him marrying the person he loves most and the mother of his child important, then they can stop expecting him for any of the family things that they find important. He dealt with and I don't want to know all he details. I do know that some words were had with my ta and with some of his family, and my ta phoned to complain to me, and Everton took the phone and told her to stop bugging me with the nitty gritty details, that his family was not my responsibility. My Ta has loved telling me every conversation she has with my guests who are not happy, she also loves to tell me about admin costs that she is eating for us?? Didn't know I was suppose to be responsible for any of these fee's?? I was fed up with them all and E finally told them back off and leave me alone, and follow through on what they had committed to do.
Anyway everyone is booked, we are 44 people now confirmed and paid in full. Thank god this part is done and over with, it really is the most difficult part of planning a dw. I am going to concentrate on the rest of the details and work on forgetting this blib ever happened.
We will all go on vacation, have a beautiful wedding and maybe Everton's family will finally see how much Everton and I love each other, what a great family we have, and what a beautiful sweet boy they have missed out on knowing.
Good luck to all of you who also will go through similar experiences, I have no good advice for you on how to handle it, I wish I did. It is easy to say don't let it bother you, or hurt you, but we all know that this really is easier said than done! Unfortunately the people who are able to hurt us most are the people we love most, or in my case the people who we want to love us.
Thanks for all the words of encouragment, this would have been so much worse without all you girls supporting me and helping me deal, you girls are truly great. Give yourselves a hug and as Glenda would say, Kelly hearts you
