let's start a MIL from hell thread
Posted 27 October 2009 - 03:07 PM
My MIL is now unhappy with the seating chart for the ahr this weekend. She sent us a email full of demands, and claiming they will "just shove the tables together if that is easier". Um, wtf?? She is not paying for any of it and this is a plated affair at a fancy restaurant. I will not have these people be shoving tables and chairs around like a herd of cattle. We work hard on the centerpieces, chart and seating cards. I am tempted to tell this woman if she does not like it, there is an Applebees on the way home.

Sorry I really hate people that have no sense of social acceptable behavior, "It's not your day, mother -in-law keep your mouth shut. What makes people think they can control everything.

I can't believe she has pictures up of FI & his ex and had the NERVE to say that to you about how "wonderful" she is!! I would have said, is she was so "wonderful" why is she out of the picture?
I would have by now, told her off, in front of people.... especially with the remark about your mom not needing to come wedding dress shopping with you! I'm totally shocked!
Then next, I'd move my wedding FURTHER away... out of the country and let her whine until her hearts content
BTW - My wedding colors are black, ivory & green and I think you made a FABULOUS choice

We live in NY and she lives in Atlanta.. when my fiance flew in to see her (his mother) she HAND DELIVERED THE LOVE LETTER and told him to "read it in a quiet place" WTF!!!! This woman really ruffles my feathers!!! Who does that?!?!?

I was also just informed that she wants me to stay elsewhere the night before we leave for Mexico because she wants a "mother/son night" with FI! What? We are leaving for two weeks and you want to kick me out of my house the night before we fly out for OUR wedding?! And to boot? FI's father will be there with his adorable girlfriend so FMIL bought the most LOUD, awful, revealing dress for our wedding "to make him realize what he had". She left him! Uggg, so glad you started this thread! She is staying at the same resort until the day we leave too! We won't get a honeymoon bc she "needed a vacation" which happened to be the exact dates we are going to be there AND we had to pay for her! I swear she is doing all of this bc she is mad we are getting married! Sorry, just wanted to vent with you : )
I know the situation is not ideal, and that sucks. I just thought Iâ€™d give you some ideas so that it might be a bit more tolerable for you. After all, you DONâ€™T have to spend all of your time down there with her, it is your wedding. And if for some reason she expects you to be at her beck and call while youâ€™re at the resort, just explain to her that you and FI want some time to enjoy being newlyweds and spending time alone together. That and you can also point out that she wanted a vacation, and perhaps sheâ€™d like to go out and try some different things. The worst thing that can happen is she gets upset with you, and then goes on with her â€œvacationâ€. I hope this helps!
