  • Re: Awkward family situation

    Jen, that's a distinct possibility.
    I was engaged for two months before he even asked me about the wedding (and I told him the night my FI asked). It wasn't until I told him that the wedding would be at my mother's house that he offered to help pay for a "better" venue (my mom and stepdad had already graciously paid for my dress, and enough to cover the photographer and caterer). He insisted the wedding be held somewhere that wasn't 'trashy' and that if he gave me the money for a different venue, that I would need to invite more of his family. 
    After telling him, no, the wedding will be at mom's, he said that he knew some people, i.e. his girlfriend, would be in a bad mood due to the close quarters with my mom, which would then put others in a bad mood. 
    Needless to say, I told politely but firmly told him that anyone who knew they would act poorly was not welcome at my wedding and they can quietly GTFO.
