I was seethingly pissed too but I kept myself calm because of where I was. They then proceeded to say I'm only having a DW because my mom manipulated me. I so wanted to say "No it's so I don't have to invite you a$$holes."
I have seen them like twice since I was 14. Give me a break. Don't act like you have been involved in every important day in my life and this is the only one you will miss.
Whew! Finally got to rage on that one. You are not alone girls. Keep your chins up and let the haters hate on.
omg rach, that is SO ridiculous. why is it that aunts and uncles with no involvement in our lives feel like our weddings are all about them?!
my latest hitch is that my FSIL informed me today that she was inviting 5 friends because she doesnt have a boyfriend. WTF. you CANT invite people to SOMEONE ELSE'S wedding! she said she was going to pay my FMIL per person (so obviously she doesnt realize that its over $200/head) to make up for it, and i wanted to scream at her, but i decided yes im ticked off because who the f does she think she is inviting people to my wedding when i didnt allow my parents to invite and friends, so im sure as
not allowing HER! but that i am going to pass this one on to my FI to deal with, because i know he will not stand for it. our guest list is already waaaaaaaaay out of hand due to his parents inviting 100+ people from mexico alone. as soon as they were paying for the reception, 50+ people were added to their guest list they gave us. i dont think so!!!
