    I don’t think that it was so bad when he was a kid but they’ve continued to indulge some pretty insufferable behavior through his adulthood.

    Oof – I got all of the connections wrong. My bad. Nonetheless, I am astounded when I read about brides and grooms that really and truly believe that the world should pay out the tuchas for their wedding.

    As I am sure that you are all dying for an update, BoF’s* brother and his fiance will be getting married in their own city, a few hour drive from us, so we will thankfully not have to travel Africa or the South Pacific for their wedding.

    Well that’s a bonus! Nobody wants to buy a plane ticket to obnoxiousness.

    What about the engagement party?

    It sounds hellish. Don’t go. Life have taught me that if you don’t want to go to something, the repercussions of not going are preferred than sucking up the event.

    Say you don’t want to go, and if the in laws whine, let them whine. They will eventually get over it. Your absence is not going to be tragic, tbh.

    I never go to celebrations of that kind. I hate weddings and such. Family is accustomed to the fact, and they don’t expect me to come, ever.

    What magical fairy took a clue by four and whacked the brother until sanity set in?

    Be happy they do not live in the same city as you. You are going to need to vent as this unfolds.

    To answer your questions, I think that that that the decision change was a combination of things. The bride really wasn’t into the idea. They wanted a larger 200+ person wedding, which would be harder to do at a destination wedding.

    Engagement party was a saga. Bride didn’t want to do an engagement party. BoF*’s mother in law wanted to host a meet the families get together in which BoF’ s extended family would meet the Bride’s family. BoF’s father is a great cook and always puts together ridiculous spreads. But Bride was resistant to this idea and wouldn’t give BoF’s mother her contact information so it was just Bride and BoF’s family. That being said, I like BoF’s family, sans brother and so a good time was had by Fyodor**, even as the situation was kind of weird.

    *Bride of Fyodor
    **The most important thing.
