Hello everyone,My future hubby and I decided to throw an informal engagement BBQ this summer for everyone to attend, so everyone can meet, that sort of thing. We picked a date in July, not realizing it was a friends husbands birthday. We planned and paid for everything for that date. And in the 2 weeks since we've sent out the invites and told everyone to be expecting them, I have heard, "that's my birthday" and "that's my husband's birthday that you picked for the party." Mind you, this is not an all day affair, but a casual BBQ. Can anyone recommend some advice on how to deal with this? I am sick of getting snarky comments.
I quit i cannot explain it obviously. I have tried multiple times. Apparently no one understands and it and only makes sense in my head. I give the f*** up. No more explanation. Because you still have it twisted so i am done.
Thanks for the responses! Sometimes I wonder if I am too judgmental sometimes, but you guys agreed with my gut feeling.Unfortunately it's a couple my SO is close with so it's one of those things you just look the other way. I didn't spend a ton on the gift since, you know, 100 people were invited. Story is mom to be hates attention that's why they are doing it this way. I call BS but *shrug*.
