Now they are saying they aren't even coming to the wedding, which I think is horrible they wouldn't be there for him...but at the same time I'm getting ready to say SO BE IT!!! We are also thinking of doing the legal part here to save some money and not have to worry about any issues with paperwork and all that jazz. I'm not EVEN going to mention that part to them!! That will just be ONE more thing they will cause drama about!

    Oh lord have mercy lol. We dealt with our share of issues. At our wedding my MIL talked so much trash about me to our guests, eventually at our AHR her own family came to my mother and I and told her the same thing my guests were saying. She literally "mourned" our wedding lol. She wore all black, I got my hair done first but couldn't stick around to monitor while the girls got ready...she copied my hairstyle, she would not dance AT ALL, she barely took photos with us. But I don't really care. She has issues because my husband is her only son and she doesn't want to accept that I'm his wife. When I smashed cake in his face during our cake cutting she ran to grab a napkin and was saying "oh my poor son, I can't believe she did that come here let me clean your face" and one of my guests said "that's not your job anymore, that's his wife's job" LOL She mentions that comment till this day. And she calls me "princess" and no its not a compliment. LOL

        LOL Thanks. Honestly we only see her from time to time so I'm ok. He has to deal with my mom more frequently and while I love her to bits because I get her and she's my mother- I know he can't tolerate my mom too much either so I'd say we are even hahaha.

         

        Honestly- so many "little" things went wrong- our cake wasn't made the way it was supposed to be, our return flights were cancelled bc of a hurricane (that never came btw), all these things piled up that I had to resign myself to just enjoying the moment. Leading up to the wedding there was so much drama that when the day finally came- I said "I'm going to soak this in and enjoy it" and I didn't let a damn thing bother me. We were in our little bubble. And that's how it should be. Mother in laws can be monster in laws. I know she will be my best friend as soon as I give her her highly desired grandchild. Although...I plan on switching careers and going back to school full time so baby is on the back burner. Of course- something else for her to be pissed at me about lololol

          I'll look that up! Thanks for the great tip! . [quote name="m8chow" url="/t/87468/help-newbies-get-150-posts/120#post_1954732"]You're more than halfway there.  If you do a search on "games", there are word games you can play with other brides and it'll speed the process up. ]

          maybe try searching "family" and see what else comes up
