OMG.... how about you talk to ME!!!!!!

I am still SO livid about this......


Our wedding is in downtown and we blocked off 2 of the top hotels at ridiculously low prices for prime season, one is our venue and the other is closer but less expensive. I'm talking like $109 a night cdn when all the hotels in that area will be around $170+.


I get a FB message from my brother saying he, my mom, grandparents, and aunts have all booked at a hotel 20-30 mins outside of the downtown area because its cheaper. I said thats fine... BUT you are needed Thursday night for bach, Friday night for rehearsal dinner and Saturday night for wedding.... are you really going to drive in, pay parking, party till 1am and then drive back?? All to save a few $$?? It doesn't make sense... even financially the savings aren't that much and in the end the hassel is insane! The cost of gas, parking and hassel... I don't know how much of a savings this is!


I just contacted my mom to ask her what they intend to do with my elderly grandparents after the ceremony!! Everyone else has a hotel room they can go back to and relax.... but since they all decided (WITHOUT EVEN TALKING TO ME) that they would stay so far away they now have a 2 hour gap in downtown with my grandparents.... I understand they are all adults... but at least talk to me about this first!


My mom also said that she will stay the night before the wedding with me at one of the downtown hotels.... but this makes NO sense... I'll have to change rooms, she will have to move hotels etc... I want to tell her I'll stay with my dad.... he is arriving the Wednesday and staying that week... but she will FLIP I know it.... but it makes sense if I room with him because I need to be downtown.


I also looked up this hotel they are all booked at and its HORRIBLE..... the reviews are really bad! I'm SO afraid they will tell more people to stay there from my mom's side! In the message I sent my mom, I said please DO NOT refer people here... it will reflect badly on my wedding, especially because her side of the family GOSSIP like crazy. I have listed the 2 downtown hotels on my invites which havn't even gone out yet.... but I can just see them boasting about what a 'good deal' they got etc.. and stirring up drama!!!


I can't do anything about this.... but I feel like I was completely overlooked, not even consulted and I'm the host who knows what the events are that day, the area, the costs etc... our website is also very detailed about all of these things. 


I just needed to vent about the ridiculous drama thrown on me about this!!!!

((HUGS)) Girlly. I hope you can convince your mom & brother to stay at the hotels that are book, maybe try one more time to stress the importance of them being at the hotel with you.

Thank you ladies.... I just wish they would have at least talked to me..... I feel like they just all went behind my back, consulted and booked.... which I really don't care but my mom, brother and grandparents are a huge part of this wedding... there is going to be so much uneccessary driving!


Did I also mention that I haven't seen my mom is TWO years.... we live very far away so one would think when your only daughter is getting married you would want to spend as much time as possible with her... but no... they are all showing up the Friday and leaving the Sunday.... and to boot staying so far away... it really makes me sad.


I'm very blessed to have FIs family though... his mom has been awesome... throwing me a shower, receiving boxes, helping me plan... they are all also staying downtown with the rest of us... while my family is pulling stunts like this.... and then saying I'm freaking out.... well I wonder WHY

I forgot to update!!! 


My brother, my mom and grandparents are now staying at the recommended hotel for both Friday and Saturday night! My other family is sticking to that random cheapy hotel. To each his own... but I made it known that I would not be held responsible for anything to do with that hotel or their drive into the city! If they are late due to traffic or in the inability to locate parking.. the wedding will go on without them! 


I've just gotten to the point where I'm SO fed-up with stuff like this.. I couldn't have made it any easier and people like to bring the drama to themselves.


*siiiiigggghhhhhhhh*
