Sorry Bees I just need to vent a little!
Firstly its the wrong time of the month and im hormonal so not in the best frame of mind to cope with today which has been horrible.
We handed out 1st batch of invitations (spent all last week making) and were both disappointed when people just tossed them on the side (I know, I know we’re the only ones they’re really important to).
Then I was stuck in the middle of the mother of all rows between FI and FMIL about details of the wedding. I know better than to intervene so just stood there, it was horrible & I felt awful for him. (very long story but she’s making life hard work).
Lastly got home to an email telling me my hair & make up trial was cancelled, problems with the vendor meaning I might not have pro hair and make up on the big day…. Cue melt down, lots of tears and snotty self pity & generally too much emotion.
I know it’s all stupid little stuff and I’m not proud of myself. Full credit to FI though as he was awesome, told me the invitations were the most beautiful he’d ever seen and he is so proud of me, forget about his mother & I don’t need pro hair and make up because I’m gorgeous without it. Made me smile through the tears. Love my guy.

Steph77: Calm down 🙂
You still have 4 months so that is plenty of time to book another hair and make-up trial or find a new stylist. It might mean a little researching but that’s an easy fix.
As for your invites, that sucks that no one is paying them much attention but like you said yourself, no one else will care about them as much as you do. Maybe they saw the date and how far in advance it is so they will pay more attention closer to the date?
And finally, there is nothing you can really do about the rows between your FI and FMIL. Unfortunately sometimes our parents think they know best or they want a certain thing for the wedding but you and your FI need to try to remember that this is your day and you can’t try to please everyone, including your FMIL. It must be hard but unfortunately there is nothing you can do other than just let her rant and then politely say “We appreciate your input but have decided on x”.
Most of all, remember that the most important thing about your wedding is that you walk away married to the love of your life. The rest is just a big party xx

OneDayMrsL: Thanks! I know it’s all petty stuff that can be fixed, it’s just been one of those! The reason were giving out invites so far ahead is people need to book accommodation x
