OK, DH is being a dumb ass. His niece is getting married in Pasedena, CA. We are the only close family she has left. They are wealthy. Niece has politely sent an STD that tells us that there are four hotels within walking distance of her ceremony and reception, and has blocked off rooms at a special rate for us.
I reserved a room for two nights at the Hilton. This will cover rehearsal dinner and wedding day. Other family will also be there. Sounds good, right?
DH wants to stay at the Burbank-Glendale Travel Lodge! It is cheap (oh, yeah, right). He says we only have to come to the ceremony and reception, and then we can leave. He doesn't want to stay at the Hilton, or any of the other hotels his niece arranged for us. I cannot drive in LA, and I have seen DH panick at the traffic. We would need to rent a car or take a taxi.
I have told him that he is welcome to stay at the Burbank Travel Lodge, but that I will be staying at the Hilton. Am I wrong? Is DH being ridiculous? He never has understood wedding protocol since we got married in such a hurry. He's still whining about the cost of daughter's wedding in Maryland, and that was more than six years ago. He just wants cheap. I am disgusted.
Help! Can you think of anything to persuade an engineer that cost isn't the point when you are celebrating a wedding? FFS, we have the money!
