How about asking MIL/SIL what their plan is to get your gifts to Texas? Since they've taken over the whole thing then surely they've figured that out too :smileywink: . But seriously, transporting the gifts must be a budget line item in out of town weddings. What do people do when they have "destination" weddings?

And who is invited to YOUR wedding that doesn't even know that you don't live in CA? I can understand that they might not know exactly where in TX you live, but haven't you both been away from CA for at least a few years?

You're a braver woman than I am, letting your MIL and SIL plan your wedding...I hope your df lets them know that this is the last time they plan anything for you.

Well. this whole thing has been one 'eye opening' experience about control issues! Geez!

And DF & I want to have a baby.....I really hope we do, & if we succeed? this will be the only grandchild for MIL! Yikes!
