Has anyone else dealt with a controlling contributor who wants only certain people in attendance? ( no gay/ lesbians/ "lazy people" )
"Lazy" is my nice way for me to say what this person thinks of other stereotypes ( I'll be blunt, Latinos, African Americans, and country folk.)
This person knows they have NO control over who guests bring as their plus one, but In the back of their mind I know they want to. ( I think their thought is DUMB !!!!)
I have invited family and with the space left my FI friends and a few of my friends; some of witch fit the gay/ lesbian, "lazy people" criteria.
I know my gay/ lesbian guests well enough that they are polite enough to not have their tungs down each other's throats. I invited my friends that fit the criteria anyway. My opinion is I am an adult, you are an adult, so are my friends; there are things in life that you are not going to like tough cookies. You can not choose MY friends or their guest.
Enough of this persons family and friends will be in attendance that they can choose to mingle with them instead of my friends if they wish.
To Chibiyu good luck my only advice is to see if it is PDA or comments your FI family dislikes about their fellow family member.
If it's behavior I would see if someone could discretely speak to that person and ask them to not be so blatant at the wedding. If it is this family member's comments have someone tell them it bothers ............, we would greatly appreciate if you toned those statements down for our wedding.
