Ladies! New to the group and wondering if anyone has any advice on handle in-laws from hell?!
Little bit of back story- We get engaged Dec. 2018 and the very next day my fiancés brother says that he is going to propose to his girlfriend that he’s only been dating since Sept. 2018 (never had any intentions prior to this). He asked us to help with the engagement and we were super excited for them so we said yes because we had a really good relationship with them…at the time…
My fiancé and I go to Savannah, GA quite frequently and the two of them have never been. So, he asked us to plan the engagement for Jan. 2019 in Savannah. We thought that was a little weird since the two of them don’t have any history there together, but whatever, we drove up and everything was perfect and she said yes!
Now comes the wedding planning nightmare. We discussed wedding dates at Christmas with his family (they weren’t engaged yet), wedding ideas, etc. Well, since then they have taken our wedding date and changed up their entire wedding to match ours. They even asked us if they could have a joint wedding with us because they don’t have a big enough budget and asked me to officiate the wedding. They moved from a beach wedding to a barn/outdoor wedding just like ours. They even had the balls to ask us about using our venue. We have no earthly idea how his family is going to be at two weddings on the same day and the same time and this has obviously caused some major family drama.
His mother has been so hateful and played victim the whole time. She has talked smack about my family, saying that I only want them involved and even went as far to call my mom an alcoholic (my mom drank one friggin margarita and a glass of wine when we took them to a rel="nofollow" Garth Brooks concert). I have tried to invite her to tour the venue and reached out to her and she never replies or just doesn’t show up. My family loves my fiancé so much and they are actively involved in our day to day lives so of course they know more about our plans than someone who doesn’t show interest. Maybe I am just looking at this from a wrong perspective?
Some craziness has happened in-between all of this and needless to say most of his family isn’t talking to one another. For instance, they blocked us on FB, which was cool with us because we were tired of seeing all the hateful posts. Well then they make fake Facebooks to post about us and basically stalk our lives. It’s really weird and we are super frustrated about the entire situation and feel like everything they do is to intentionally undermine our wedding.
Anyways I could ramble on and on…. HELP! haha.
