Now my SIL is generally lovely, but she very materialistic and I really have nothing in common with her, she is the kind of person who buys a belt for $300 and goes on about what a bargain it is....where as I am the kind of person who doesn't even know what a belt is let alone how to use one!
The wedding is bringing out the PITA in her personality...an example
I'm not part of the wedding party (which I am more than happy about) - BUT, she told me that I have to show her what I will be wearing so she can "approve it"...The first dress I got was not acceptable and I had to go buy a new one.
She told me that everyone has to wear a fascinator or they won't be allowed in the restaurant - I think she was exaggerating here, but she went on at me for a hour when I said that I don't really like wearing fascinators, apparently they are a non-optional dress code.
My actual issue is with the hen party which I didn't really want to go to anyway, her friends are all very much like her and I really didn't fancy an evening discussing the nuances of gucci handbags vs prada...or something equally vacuous!
My other SIL (who I love) and I VERY grudgingly agreed to go along because it would be very rude if her new family didn't show up.
Anyway, I get an email today saying that...
All people attending the hen party (direct quote)
"must wear a sexy black dress, you have plenty of time to go out and buy one if you don't have one"
THEN it's $130 for dinner, topless waiter and 'other surprises'...that's before I've even had a drink, and trust me, I'd NEED to drink a LOT.
So EB, if you've made it that far with my white whine whinge about wedding bollocks, I need you to:
a) tell me to suck it up and stop behaving like a brat
b) give me a good excuse for not going
I don't mind which side of that fence you sit on!
