See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Okay, so my husband and I were married last April. We just had a courthouse thing. My parents are throwing us a reception/party this April to celebrate. We are having about 120 people to their house and having a big party. Of these guests, about 40 of them are my husband's extended family that are coming in from all over the country.
My husband's parents decided they wanted to throw a dinner the night before the party for family. All together it would be about 50 guests. They chose a restaurant and everything. We thought it was really nice and that was that.
Yesterday, my MIL emailed my husband and said "I know Megan's been really tired lately (I'm pregnant and I get EXHAUSTED during my pregnancies), and we thought that maybe we would have that dinner at your house so she wouldn't have to be out late."
Umm, Pardon? So I told my husband no way in Hell. I'm not hosting a dinner for 50 people the day before my reception. I'm not cooking, I'm not cleaning it up. It's not happening. I thought it was ridiculously rude to even suggest this idea since they OFFERED to throw a dinner to celebrate OUR marriage. Anyway, my husband doesn't think it was rude of them to suggest.
I'm not looking for advice, I already gave my answer and I'm not swaying (lol). I was just wondering, if YOU were put in this situation, how would you have reacted??? My mom said she would have been pissed, but she would have allowed them to have the dinner at the house. Apparently I'm a bigger bitch than her lol.
So, what would you have done??
