It's really not a big deal but I need to rant about it anyway. We're in the midst of working on our invitation wording. Our entire engagement/ wedding has been very long and rather stressful and his family has been nothing but a burden the entire time- for both of us. He's in a different country, I'm in the US. My parents are paying for the wedding, my parents offered to help his family fly out, my parents sent his family Christmas gifts, my parents have bent over backwards to try and make his family feel included and a part of everything.
In the meantime, his mom has sent me emails asking me why we even have to get married since she doesn't believe in it, his mother and grandmother have both hollered around about how the only reason we're having a wedding in America is to keep his family locked out and to "spite them". They "can't afford" to come out here but have gone on multiple trips around Europe fully aware that my Fiance is getting married in a different country. And let's not even get into the hassle we've had over trying to get addresses for his family- I still don't have them. Evidently no one does.
And so here we are, it's time to write up the wedding invites since we are FINALLY getting married hopefully because we're going to make it through the last phase of immigration without any problems (knock on wood), and in order to avoid problems -.- we're having to add his mother's name so that his family doesn't feel further slighted.
I am annoyed.
I'll do it, and I won't fuss about it because it's a small thing to take off his plate of worries; especially since his mother loves to just swoop down like a screeching harpy and hound him. But I am definitely annoyed. We've not had one pleasant thing said by his family, not gotten a card, not a congratulations, nothing. From the get-go we've been complained at and b***ched at for how we've handled things. But to make myself feel better I'm putting her name where it deserves to go (if it deserves to go anywhere). MY parents are holding the wedding. She is mentioned under his name in the great
son of *insert Single MISS fmil*
And that's IT.
Thank you for letting me rant ladies
