WEDDING DRAMA

Ok to all you ladies out there that have had your big day, or hell even the ladies dealing with the planning.....I am having to deal with "Brothers GIRLFRIEND" drama AGAIN....heres the long & the short of it....They have been 2gether 10 years, have a 9 yr. old daughter, are living (rent free) with my parents ( they let them move in when she had the baby so they could get on their feet, after the unexpected arrival of the baby & they have yet to move out) My brother will never marry her regardless of how long they stay together.My niece (their daughter) is my "Honorary MOH" ( not having bridal party, My son is the "Honorary Best Man"). FI, and I have bought my nieces dress, shoes, flowers, jewelery...they have not purchased anything...which I was fine with, because she is the daughter of my only brother and I am "auntie" to only her,but MY BROTHERS GIRLFRIEND, is just testing my patience....I don't even want her there at the wedding, but I was politically correct and invited her ....I am trying my hardest to look past it all, not 100% successful to be honest...LOL.


So I became curious to hear from you ladies, who caused the most drama for you?

Sometimes its so hard to be the bigger person. You can love your niece and not care for her mother, put try to keep the peace, i think its always best to be the better person, and kill her with kindness. It works. 


I really havent had tooooo much drama, just the usual FMIL dosnt want to let go of her baby boy crap. Lol!

there's always gonna be someone who IS drama--- it's not necessarily that they cause drama intentionally b/c it's your wedding - altho that happens too - but i just think there are certain people who just live in so much drama that it's "normal" to them???


look past it - your brother and your neice are who are important to you


hang in there

You are doing the right thing by inviting her. If you don't, there will just be more drama surrounding the wedding. 


The person who is giving me the most trouble- the best man's wife. We are having a DW and she complains about EVERY penny she has to spend on being there. When FI and I spend HUNDREDS on her wedding between the tux rentals, bridal shower gifts and bachelorette/ bachelor parties... I think her getting a vacation to mexico for our wedding is actually cheaper than what we spent on them for their wedding... people kill me.

Happy,  I am the MOB planning my only daughter's wedding.  I haven't spoken to my sister in 7 years...oh, and she lives 2 miles from me.  My husband recently saw her in the grocery store and she didn't even say, "hello."  How does my daughter, my family expect for me to invite the b*tch to a $200 a head wedding?  Do you think I want to?  H*ll freakin' NO!  But I'm going to have to....I'll let her decline the invite and then she'll be the idiot, not me.


I have a friend of 40 years...long story short...I haven't spoken to her in 2 years.  My daughter has asked me about inviting her to the wedding...she's my daughter's Godmother.  Do I want to?  Uh...no!  But I probably will..............I'll put her at the table with my sister.................they can sit and talk about me all evening long...............and if my mother doesn't "knock off" the drama she's causing, I'll seat her at that table too!  They'll have a grand freakin' time together!!!!!  LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

ditto on what d1rty said. My family is completely drama free and we haven't really had ANY drama with our wedding - except my FMIL, who is just trying to be the center of attention or something. We are just trying to ignore it. There is always gonna be something ya know - best to just focus on the good stuff and not let the drama queens impact your special time.

I had a bridesmaid that I didn't even know if she was going to show up on the big day. I just let it go and decided if she was there then she was and if not I didn't care. I know it's easier said than done, but just let it go. Replace your lack of patience with strength and enjoy your day.

Hmmm...besides my mom who wrote a horrible letter to me when I was 21 and stuck it in my baby book and just gave it to me recently (I'm 33 now) and knew I would read it.


But my cousin recently got back together with his baby's mama.  She is sweet, but  I thought she wasn't coming to the wedding b/c he just left for Kuwait for a new job for 6 months.  And now I hear she is coming to the wedding.  Even though he won't be there.  And they are only pseudo back together.  but he wants her to feel like she is part of the family.  Huh? Really? I like her and all, but maybe they should work on their crap a little more first. IDK.
