Sooooo FI's cousin is getting married in late June... aaaand we just got the invitation. I actually was excited, I thought it would be a thank you card for the gift that we sent them a little while back, and I was excited to see that they had definitely got it.
RSVP by May 1. Fine, I already had to request time off from work anyway. Bonus: We weren't B listed?
There is a 3 hour gap. My FI's response: "AWESOME I'M SO EXCITED TO DO SOME BIKING IN THE AREA!" (Lurkers: If "taking a bike tour of the area" can be listed under "things to do between the ceremony and reception", you might have a gap.)
I was told that it was going to be "super fancy". It starts at 4:30 and the invites aren't making ME think it's super fancy. They have dainty flowers, and somewhat plain paper. I'm thinking cocktail dress for me and tan suit for FI- but I feel we'll get side-eyed for it. Maybe I'm just being oversensitive about that. Plus, it was just to "hikebikebemerry and hikebikebemerry's FI"; no Mr./Ms... this IMHO also makes the event seem less formal. However, it's held at a fairly fancy pants place.
Request on the wedding website that no ladies wear white, as it is reserved for the bride.
The misspelled my last name on the invitation. (Whatev. Shit happens, but seriously... FI and I are both on FB, it wouldn't hurt to check.)
On top of all of this, this part of FI's family can be really obnoxious to my FMIL, who is AWESOME.
This is one of those weddings where I wish that there was a box for "resentfully attend". Or is that my PMS talking?
