Ok I just need to vent a little , here is the story. My FI has a huge family like huge. we are inviting some but not all,pretty much only the ones we interact with reguarly and the really important ones .he has like 6 uncles and we invited 3, because we havent seen nor heard from them in years ,so we invited the ones we are close with .he also has 3 brothers we invited 2 the third is alot older than him and he never calls and we havent seen im in like 6 years .Well now that we are having a wedding .everyone and their mom is coming out of the wood work and wanting to come to our wedding . Now im flattered and all but really you could have cared less about us before and all of a sudden they want to come to the wedding . His uncle( we never see or hear from EVER) facebooked me asking if he can come. thats fine we have room in the budget then he calls my FI asking if he can also bring his 8 kids.( yeah not a typo 8!!!) are serious !! I was floored ..his brother calls also wanting to come and bring his daugher..I feel like they think this is some backyard barbcue or some get together . I dont think it has anything to do with wanting to celebrate our wedding and see us . the had no intrest in seeing us or even checking to see if we were still alive before.they all now live in VA and we live in MA and I think they just wanted to find a reason to show their kids where they were from ,and come see there old area again . I dont want to be a bridezilla,but seriously !!!!!!
