Don’t get them involved! They’re being jerks already!
Be cautious if they are going to make you feel bad over a stupid FB post. :
Talk with them and see how they expect to participate first before you allow them into your special day… going to take a lot to take it away from them if you find out their expectations are crazy later.

And no, you weren’t wrong to say that… you could have 10,000 engagment meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks only. Your mom and sis don’t need to be there for every single one!

@mishy:  Holy cow, you are in for a long engagement!

No, you’re not wrong for having a dinner out with your friends.  Are your mother and sister always involved to meals with your friends?  Because I can tell you my mom NEVER is.

 

I would just calmly respond to both your sister and mother that you’re still enjoying being newly engaged and haven’t done much of anything in the way of planning yet.  Let them know what you plan to do in the near future or if you’re waiting on doing anything else right now.

@mishy:  “I’ll just make sure i call them whenever we are thinking about making a decision about the wedding”


Please don’t forget, this is YOUR wedding, not theirs! I think it is very sad that you feel like you are in a position where you need to inform them or get their opinion on every decision that you make. I understand that they want to be involved, but holy, there needs to be some boundaries…
