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.August 5, 2019 at 3:30 pm #849644LisforLeslieGuest
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.October 29, 2019 at 3:05 pm #856419FyodorGuest
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.October 29, 2019 at 3:21 pm #856421SkyblossomParticipant

What about the engagement party?October 29, 2019 at 7:08 pm #856468LeonGuest
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.October 29, 2019 at 7:51 pm #856476LisforLeslieGuest
What magical fairy took a clue by four and whacked the brother until sanity set in?October 30, 2019 at 4:15 am #856525OracleGuest
Be happy they do not live in the same city as you. You are going to need to vent as this unfolds.October 30, 2019 at 5:29 am #856533FyodorGuest
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.October 30, 2019 at 5:38 am #856535FyodorGuest
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.
