I am fuming here O:| O:| Need to get this off my chest >:o) H2B came in from work tonight and out of the blue says"I was thinking again about getting the 3 amigos for during our wedding meal" :ooh Now this came out of the blue because we had discussed this months ago on the recommendation of HIS MOTHER :action34 but then decided they cost abit too much and we would leave it! So in any way i mentioned last sun when we were in HER house that i had booked a harpist for durin the m eal, and her face dropped and said she would pay for 3 amigos for us, but i just ignored her and carried on >:o) Then H2B comes in and says this, and i knew she had her BEAK in our business again. So as it happens she rang H2B durin today and said to him that HER and ffil had DISCUSSED(NONE OF THEIR BUSINESS) the harpist and it wouldnt be to the taste of her guests :ooh O:| O:| O:| Stupid B**ch. So now H2B is goin along with her :o( :o( Am i over reacting or i am right that it is none of her business and its our day? I am fed up with her sticking her beak in and causin ructions between me and H2B :o( Sorry for rant :wv

Is it possible that MIL heard that you and h2b wanted the three amigos and the reason you didn't go for them was that you couldn't afford it and was genuinely trying to do something nice?

Tell your H2B to cut the apron strings he should be supporting your decision not hers and no you are not over reacting

No she knew we were thinking about gettin them! Her and ffil were goin to book them at the wedding they were at, but when the fellas told them the price :eek they said thanks but no thanks! And now out of the blue because i have a harpist booked they are willing to pay O:| O:| because their guest, THEIR GUEST, not mine and H2bs would not like it >:o( >:o(

Her friends and family would all be drinkers :hic !! enough said,whereas i think alot of people would prefer some nice soothing quiet music to talk amongst themselves, because as soon as band starts you cant hear a thing :o0

Would this 3 piece band be in keeping with the mood you're conveying at your wedding?

Keep the head, say thanks for the offer but no thanks, we don't want them. I always find it better to remain polite because the first cross word that comes out of your mouth will be remembered forever, whereas she was just trying to help!
