Why is it that relatives always tend to cause problems or upset the apple cart?

We've been planning for nearly 3 months now to get married in Vegas. One of the reasons we picked this date is that we were told a certain relative was not travelling anywhere and so "gramma" could come watch the kids while we were gone.

Gramma is still coming up, but the relative (and the entire famdamly) somehow "forgot" that we were going to Vegas to get married that week and planned a vacation that week! This is a person that from what I hear has been known to show up uninvited to things, make comments that aren't appropriate, etc...

Of course, our OPSEC hasn't been 100%, but not even Gramma knows what chapel it is or the hotel we're at (altho at least one of the kids knows the chapel - and personally, I think that's the leak).

This has my bride-to-be a bit concerned (ok, more than a bit) and I would love to figure out an "insurance" plan to make sure that if an attempt to crash the wedding was attempted, it would be thwarted.

However, the "suspect" has reassured her (us) that they have no intention of crashing the wedding, or attempting to bump into us while they are there. This really doesn't convince me, but I have to accept it. To do otherwise would be to call them a liar, and I can't do that (at least not yet)

If I could I would switch the venue to Reno, or move the ceremony up a couple hours, but reservations are made, deposits paid (and would be lost), so we're a bit stuck with our time and venue.

I guess I just needed to vent a bit. Maybe I can convince people that I really am Bobby deNiro and they will kick in some extra security

It's your wedding. Every place in Vegas will prevent uninvited guests from attending your wedding. If you don't want them there, make that clear to them. If they show up, have them removed. Don't allow anything to ruin your special day.

A call out to the NvHTF, and I bet you could have armed ARFCOM guards escorting unwanted guests out!

Good luck to you with that problem. Like GMW said, it's YOUR day, no one should ruin it.

Well, we discussed it last night when this all came up and we are going to inform the chapel of it.

The thought had occurred to me about posting in the NvHTF about it, but I think simply having the chapel "bar the door" will suffice. I did let her know that I could probably call down a fire mission from the heavens if I needed to by posting over there, but she wants to hold off until/unless something happens/becomes imminent.

All I can say is if something happens, I would not want to be them - I will nuke it from space AND kill it with fire (ARFCOM tradition, you see - "get both!"). I know where they live, and have vehicle description and plate #

So we're going to go and enjoy ourselves, knowing that we have the best security force around us if need be

Ain't this place great?!

This reminds me of a conversation JoshAR Grumpy and I had over pizza waiting once...

Something about tazing, peppersparying, stabbing, shooting, and cops beating the perp (they start beating cause well he must've done something right?!)...

BTW 4 ppl one car...all we need is ass, grass and gas... I can put up the gas 2WP can prolly hook us up with some hookers for the ass... and well Grumpy and PCr will have to battle over who brings the grass (aka whoever doesn't bring it gets to drive all the way there)
