So in two weeks my family will be meeting some of my fiance's family for the first time at a ladies lunch and tea, along with staying with some of my family members overnight. Along with church the next day and a brunch! I am so nervous! If you have read my other post of future mother-in-law has a very difficult personality and didn't want the wedding to happen this year to suit her own needs as she is very selfish. My parents are not together and there are also conflicts that have arisen within my own family when it comes to my wedding that have brought up things in the past between my mother and my fathers family who are hosting and planned the event. My mother has a history of being impulsive and creating a storm basically while, my fathers family always are pleasant and tolerate her kindly. Everyone can not get along for one reason or another.
My paternal grandmother organized this luncheon with all the ladies my mother, my sister, grandmother (fathers mother), aunt, two cousins (bridesmaids), my future mother-in-law and my future sister-in-law (her mothers mini-me aka difficult-thinks the same). How do I not have so much anxiety over this event? It is the start of events that lead up to one of the most important big days of my fiance and my life! How can I calm this anxiety and stop a conflict to arise either with my future mother-in-law or my mother? Help!
