Hi fellow October brides! Is anyone else as frustrated with the wedding planning process as I am? My FH's father has offered to graciously host our rehearsal dinner! Now my FH's mom (ex of the father) wants to invite her friends that we did not want to invite as we are just doing wedding family and wedding party. She thinks we need to include out of town guests, I do not. We are having the rehearsal two days before the wedding to cut down on the amount of out of town guests. In addition to that we are going to invite any out of town guests to join us for dancing at 8 as a band starts at that time. So then she says well I will just tell them to have dinner at the same place in another part of the restaurant, yeah cause that won't be weird!
Then my mom wants to add a bunch of people to our guest list as we did not have as many Yes's as we thought we would. I explained to her that this was called "B listing" and we would not be doing that. So yesterday she posts on FB my wedding website link!! "OMG mom, what are you thinking?!", was my response. And she deleted it. So then I create a private message to include wedding guests with our link which I didn't ever want through FB but damage is done now. A bunch of people left the conversation and now I feel like an idiot for even throwing it out there. Stressing out here!!
The good news is that had a beautiful bridal shower two weeks ago and my sister/MOH is throwing me a bachelorette party in San Diego this weekend, so I have that to look forward to!
