We will gladly have family who can't make it over for dinner, but we arent throwing another freakin reception. my one aunt who is throwing my shower (she told me she was, not asked if i wanted her to) is not coming to our wedding because she claims they cant afford to, yet they are finishing their basement to turn it into a luxurious $40K SECOND family room, when both of their kids are grown and not living at home. she repeatedly annoys me with emails about my shower which is at the end of june -- HELLO it is JANUARY! and my 80 year old grandmother is racist so the fact that im marrying a mexican is not going over well with her, and apparently she told all my cousins that anyone who voted for barack obama for president was getting cut out of her will. WTF. keep your money grams, i dont need that OR your old school backwards negativity.
i just have to let it roll off my back, but it's hard. i never knew how horrible people in my family were until i got engaged!
This is exactly how I feel. We were contemplating on having an AHR for the people that couldn't come, but the truth of the matter is everyone that REALLY matters had booked and is coming to the wedding, so we decided not to have the AHR. I do have a few co-workers that are close to me ,like my big brothers, so I may have a BBQ for 4th of July & invite them over and show them pics & stuff. But that's as far as it goes.
I can't believe your grandma made that comment about who to vote for. The last I checked, your vote was a private matter. You can just say you voted for anyone she pleases. It's not like she's going to find out ...LOL
