FI and I are getting married on 10/14/16 and his aunt and uncle just told us this week that they are wanting to have a party for us. Great! We're looking at the calendar right now for a free Saturday. This is insane...
7/30 - too soon. That's this weekend.
8/6 - We're going to a concert
8/13 - Friend's birthday party
8/20 - Out of town
8/27 - Free
9/3 - My parents are throwing us basically the exact same party for both families and the wedding party and their families. I don't want to have the same party 2 weeks in a row, especially since my parents have been planning theirs for 2 months and if their party is 2nd, I'm worried that'll be the one that people skip or are irritated by since they're back to back shindigs.
9/10 - Pre-marriage classes all weekend
9/17 - Free but FI said no because it's a huge rivalry football game and no one will want to come. (I agree with him....huge football state)
9/24 - MOH (parents are the ones wanting to have the party) is a bridesmaid in another wedding
10/1 - Free
10/8 - Bachelorette Party
10/15 - We got married yesterday.
WHERE HAS THE LAST YEAR GONE SINCE THE ENGAGEMENT??????? Is it rude to expect the same people to do back to back parties? We're not asking for gifts or doing a registry so that's ok. It's more of a time commitment. Is 10/1 too close to the actual wedding? Is it ok to say no to someone offering to have a party for us??
