Mother's Day I'm Going To A Big Italian Wedding!

I sincerely doubt that you'll change anyone's mind. I think the best bet for you is to remind yourself that YOU are taking care of YOU the best way you know how. It's their problem if they don't want to open their minds to celiac. They're adults. And when was being a princess a bad thing? (think of the bumpersticker "you say b***h like it was a bad thing!?" I wish you a good time anyhow, and pray for no CC.

Hi C--One Italian girl to another--The only thing you can do is show them how you have everything under control. Just do what you need to do like bring in your own food, check on how they handle it--and OWN the whole thing! It's all in the attitude :D . Hard headed is right--I've got lots of relatives like that! Can't tell them nothing. Anyway, have a wonderful time--so you're going to have to Tivo The Sopranos? :o

DH's family is Italian and I find the best way to deal with them is just ignore their ignorance. Sure I try and educate them (but after they've offered every dessert on the table twice you kinda catch on that it's a lost cause). Then I just laugh my butt off after we leave reliving all the idiotic questions and comments they made during the visit. I am really lucky that DH is one of my biggest supporters helping educate family and friends - so he laughs along with me. I think this past Easter we spent an entire hour car ride home cracking up at the stupidity.

I am so glad that you had such a wonderful time and that your cousin really, really listened to you. Who knows, but you might have helped some of your relatives. I would love to hear about the bouquet - how many did you stomp to get it :lol::rolleyes:

It sounds like a wonderful wonderful day for you (and I'm sure the bride had a good time too). You've turned into quite the ambassador for celiac. And I hope your cuz can fatten you up!! (married?) So when do we plan YOUR wedding? :P

Glad you had a good time...it's about time you have a good time. I am one-fourth Napledon and one-fourth Sicilian (other side is Scotch/German/English-maybe Irish that's questionnable) but I grew up with the Italian side. People look at me weird when I tell them I am part Italian because I have milk colored skin, blue eyes and blonde hair. I definitely recall the wooden spoon. Does anyone remember the older ladies who used to do the "eyes" prayers when someone was sick?

So you caught the bouquet? I don't know if it means automatic get married, but I'd be more inclined to believe it if you tell us you're married within the year. ..I can hear your family now "Yea, but is he Italian?" You're going to have to snag Dr. Fasano for them.....

Oh I [giggle] want to put it on the record; my next hubby is going to be a doctor this time.

He will be a Gastroenterologist -- I can just feel it. [giggle]

Could you see it now?

Think about it -- pretty funny stuff.

Someone who could know you inside and out?
