i'm so excited at her potentially coming now!!!! oh i hope it works out! because we're literally at the point where we're just going to ask my bro to take some pics.
oh and ps. i need to vent!
why do my FI's parents have to be so old school?!??!
we had dinner with them last night and let's just say, the talk about our AHR left me totally down and frustrated.
my parents has offered to host our AHR bbq at their place which would be great! although not big, they have a gorgeous back yard and their house has an open floor plan allowing for lots of space. FI and I talked about it yesterday aft and by cutting our invite list a bit, he was totally on board.
so we mention it to FI's parents last night at dinner.... oh the look of dissapointment! what really got to me was when his mom says "well what about all of our friends?!" being polish, i understand they're old school and such but it just bothers me so much how they aren't happy about what we (as in FI and I want). we asked to do the AHR in their yard (which is much bigger) but they said no followed by "what are we supposed to do if it rains?" ... they want us to have it at the local polish hall, but i 100% don't want to do it at a hall. The whole reason we're going away is because we dont' want the traditional wedding with the dances and the speeches etc... if we have the AHR at a hall, guests will expect that. all in all, the conversation got no where, and much like any time we try to talk wedding stuff with them, i go home feeling so down and defeated like i'm such a dissapointment..... in all honesty, i'd be perfectly happy just going to jamaica, getting married and that's it! but no... FI's parents gave so and so's kids gifts and we deserve some too... they want all of these people coming to my reception and i've never even met them! grrrr.....
