  • I personally wouldn't have filled out the invites and set a date until the house was done

  • Why aren't you taking care of your own housing?

  • Be thankful for what you get. Maybe you and your husband will have to finish your house with your own funds.
    P.S. I would buy a bottle of white out.

  • If I was getting a house I wouldn't be too worried about a party. Throw away the invitations and don't worry about having a party until after the house is done.

  • Can't u have the house warming at her house and just put your gifts away until your house is finished.

  • If the house is not done on the date you picked, then have all the people come over and INSTEAD of giving you another toaster, have an old fashioned barn raising. Have all your friends help finish the house.
