The day is over. Nothing bad happened, but neither did anything good.
Do you know Excel?
I would use it to outline cells in roughly the patterns of the table layout at your venue. You can put table numbers inside the cells, and outline ranges of cells for things like the lighting, music equipment, bar, dance floor, photo booth if there will be one, doors, etc. Plus, you can add rows and columns and adjust their sizes to allow for as much or as little space around the tables and other things in the layout as possible.
You can use the comment feature as you see fit too.
I think under the circumstances I would tell your FI, "If you really don't care who comes, then I'd appreciate it if you'd understand that my parents and I don't want either of them to come and agree to not invite them." I'd also consider offering your FI a concession if he agrees to not invite them.
No, you don't owe someone an invitation just because they gave you an expensive gift.
All you owe them is a graciously worded thank-you note, which you are already planning to send them.Report11
@charlotte989875, I'm very sorry. That stinks in both senses of the word.
Today is still young and hopefully something good will happen.
