    Posted: 3/19/2006 at 8:01am

This topic is just the place for my FI's aunt. She has made comments all through out our dating years, now she REALLY has an opinion on me. The funny thing she doesn't even know me. She told my FSIL that she doesn't like me but whatever make my FI happy. Well she doesn't like my FSIL either (aunt has told me) and FSIL knows it, so of course she tells me. I told my FMIL and she said her sister doesn't even know me why would she say something like that. She's crazy.

When we were home and talking about wedding details she went off telling me how wrong I was  for not having Mexican food at the reception (I'm Hispanic). I told her we're having chicken cause it's a neutral food. I was wrong for doing that. This crazy lady acts like shes paying for the wedding.

Besides wedding stuff, she keeps saying "I'll have to split my time between Vegas (BIL lives there) & SD to watch your kids too." AHH no crazy lady you don't like me, who knows what you'll say to my kids (she talks bad about my FSIL to their kids). FI knows how I feel about her so she will never watch our kids. But she by no means wants us to have kids soon. Reality check it's our damn lives. We will have them when WE want. She's the crazy aunt that we have to put up with, I want to tell her to Shut it.

AAHHH, this has made me feel better. Thanks ladies

Calohigirl-None of them!?! People can be so wierd!

Maybe they didn't want to seem fixated on the ring rather than getting to know you.
As I've seen here on the boards, weddings seem to bring out the strange in some people. Some rise to the occasion and show their best, others not.

I ended up asking my SIL (brother's wife) to be my MOH rather than any of my friends becasue whe was so enthusiastic and supportive when we announced our engagement. We haven't always gotten along but have worked hard over the last year to become friends again. Now that she is my MOH it really gives us something to bond over... and my duddy friends (who I haven't really heard from) just aren't getting the chance to rain on our parade. We're happy and we'll just see them at the wedding!

man o man! what friends huh. this is just a random thing but my FI's fam threw an engagement party for us. i thought it was really strange the no one the ENTIRE night asked to see my ring? thought it a bit odd, esp because it was all of his family's friends etc and I had never met any of them.

My family has been ok but it's my friends that have been a problem...
When informed of our engagment, my best friend since the age of twelve said "oh, well are you having a wedding?" (obvious disapproval dripping from her mouth) and then when I asked her to go gown shopping "You should just rent a dress, I mean they are so expensive, all for a dress you wear once and then put in a box somewhere to save for this supposed daughter you're gonna have..."
I thought about asking her if she would be happy if I just went to Salvation Army! And then another friend's response..."oh, really,(pause) I would never get married again!"
The first is divorced (her choice) and the second is unhappily married but c'mon- I've waited until I found the right guy... and we've been together 7 1/2 years- so it's not like I don't know him well...jeez!
Just be happy for us
I'm just avoiding them until the day of the wedding

when we got engaged my dad's response was "why aren't you getting married sooner" and my mothers response was "can't you get married in 3 years?"... i mean seriously.....3 years? I think my FI would have died if we had waited 3 years...this 15 months has been tough enough.

This has been a great post. I have had some of my own things. The best has been from my mother. I am moving (in just over a month) to MT to be with my FI. When I first told my mother all she could say is it cold and she will not be visiting in the winter.

Needless to say, this was not the last comment. Almost every time we talked it was another comment about me moving. She kept telling me that when she lived in the snow she hated it and I would hate it as well. It was just not going to be fun and I would be miserable.

Finally, I told my mom that if she didn't have anything nice to say about my move then don't say anything at all. She has now stopped making comments that were stressing me out.

When my FI approached my parents asking permission, my dad's response was: "You sure you want to do THAT?!?!?! You know what you are getting into."

Thanks dad. I thought you were on my side.

My FI has a couple of tattoos and he was talking with his sister about how he wanted to get another one.  He said as a joke, "my next one will have alwaysabrdmaid's name on it." Her response? "Tattoos last a lot longer than marriages!" Sheesh - that was mean! And, besides, he was joking!

Just for the record, I cannot take credit for this book.  I've borrowed the comments from another woman on a different wedding-based discussion board in Chicago!
