MOB is supposed to look after her mother during the wedding day? I haven't attended a wedding in a while, but MOB is usually pretty busy as co-host.
This means the secondary person scheduled to look after MIL will really be the primary!
Best of Luck!
That was my first reaction. You've been had, POF. There are 2 people who should be stepping up to the plate instead of you - DH and Sally. So far, DH has effectively dumped her on you because he's going to the top of the mountain, leaving her with you. And by getting 2 rooms, you've left a way for Sally to dump her on you so that she stays in the 2nd room and you get the teens in yours (I'd cancel that second room right now.) And there's no way in e-Hell that Sally is going to be looking after her at all. No one even in normal situations would anyone expect the MOB to do something like this.
Unfortunately, it looks like the update to this one after the wedding (which we fully expect you to provide ) doesn't look like it's going to be good. My betting money is on Sally calling you up and claiming some last minute crisis for the other sibling so that you have to drive her up as well.
I think I am OK. Another sibling is supposedly bringing her up to venue. Sally has a 2 room suite at hotel and MIL will be there. During the ceremony - there are several people who can't manage the tram. We will probably just hang at the hotel or do something easy.
I have no problem being in charge of her at the reception. I am sure we will be at a family table and my 2 teenage sons adore her - she is under 5 feet tall and they are huge.
She can walk around with a cane/ walker and feed herself. If it is a buffet - one of us will need to handle her plate. She can manage restroom on her own - but usually someone walks with her.
There will be lots of family to entertain her there. If she wants to leave early - Sally will have to deal with it. Next AM, we pick her up at 11:00 and drive her back with us.
My biggest concern was the hotel room and getting her around places. Now she can stay at the hotel where the reception is - so once we get her there she is pretty good.
Of course - I'll get roped into something - but DH and I have had a few stern talks about he needs to be dancing attendance on her. Problem is she likes me ....
Of course Sally will pull something - I'd be disappointed in some way if she didn't !
