Any Friday the 13th brides out here? I'm definitely one and I love my date! I love my dress, I love my girls. I'm just not loving the stress my FMIL (future Monster In Law) and FH's family altogether is causing. They KNOW we're on an extremely tight budget and want us to invite people even FH has not met and they don't want to contribute at al. I never expected them to contribute in any way but I expect them to respect the fact we can't afford to cater to their wishes. FMIL has been extremely cruel to me in the past and now that is spreading to my bridesmaids. FH's eldest sister is 14 and in the wedding party so FMIL wanted to go to pick out bridesmaid dresses with us. She told my girls they were fat, built like boys, unattractive, etc. I was floating around the store pulling flower girl dresses or there would have absolutely been a confrontation had I heard what she said. She also likes to make everything about her. She took my consultants (I had two because one was training) away from me while I was picking out bridesmaids dresses and made them pull her dresses for her to wear. She picked out 3 and 4 HUNDRED dollar dresses for herself but complained the $169 dress we settled on for the girls was too expensive.
On another note, I am SO excited for the big day! I just bought my dress last weekend, my venue is booked, and I'm working on photography, catering, and flowers at the moment. I think I'm set on the photographer but I need to get my guest list down a little more before I have a decent quote for catering.
I'm getting married at Castle McCulloch in NC. What about y'all?
