at her wedding this summer.
It's an elephant costume.
My in-laws are Indian and traditionally, there is an elephant at the weddings.
I guess I'm a little annoyed (preggo hormones?) because she didn't ask what I thought, but said, "Dress up baby as this...so there can be an elephant at the reception : )" in an email. So I'm not sure how to read the tone, if she's joking or not.
I'm also annoyed because this costume, which we'd only use for one night, costs about $60 and this also means I have to take care off a 6 month old in a costume that isn't very cool.
I haven't gotten back to her yet, but am I wrong for being annoyed? Is she right to ask us to dress our baby in an expensive costume, only for the reception?
