So Ive posted before regarding my FFIL paying for the rehearsal dinner and now Im just getting aggrivated. Hes letting his wife handle it all and shes really starting to mess with me. Im all for someone else planning it if theyre paying for it...but this woman is messing around with who is invited.
I told her biological grandparents only (and shes getting a little pissy about her parents not being there...mind you Ive never met them) and significant others of a year or longer. She started asking me...so who are the SO? Who cares?! You dont know them! But I told her who so I dont start stuff. Theyre all husbands or wives minus a groomsmans g/f of 3 years...mother of my flower girl and my sisters b/f (who should be a FI in a few months). She got pissy about the non married couples but insists her daughter brings her b/f (fine with me theyve been together a yr) and her other daughter gets a date (no b/f) Are you kidding me?!
Then lets top it all off with her saying she wants it at a certain place but isnt willing to pay for 35 people with their prices....BUT wont tell me what she is willing to spend and when I told her I'd look around she stops responding to my phone calls/emails. AND THEN tells FI a few days later she wants to give us money for the wedding as well. Soooooooooo she cant pay for the people I want at the rehearsal dinner but shes willing to give us more $$ and complain that her parents and certain OOT guests arent invited??? Adding all of them tags another 20ish people on!
Am I wrong in being a bit aggrivated? Ive pretty much decided Im going to give her the # of people and a list of resturants and their prices and she can chose...but Im not budging on the guest list.
So I guess I also want to know...am I wrong in inviting SOs? It only an added 5 people.
