If it is becoming so overwhelming, maybe you should hire a coordinator?

Then do it your way. I understand what your mom wants, but the wedding is yours. She needs to recover and be healthy and the stress of a wedding may not help. Why dont you just scale everything down to where it would be easier on you or yes I agree hire a coordinator.

If you can swing a coordinator, I think that’s best. I’m trying my best to work it in our budget otherwise, wedding day is going to be too stressful. Our venue does not provide any help and I don’t want me family or friends setting up and taking down.

Sorry to hear that you’re upset but I think you’ll find that there isn’t much wedding stuff you can get done right now.  My wedding is at the beginning of April and just this past week things actually started getting done.  Also, don’t expect help from anyone.  Lots of people will tell you they’ll help and they just drag their feet.  So what I’ve done is taken my to do list and worked on a few items each day.  For example, yesterday I ran to Hobby Lobby and picked up the guest sign-in book pen and some pens that I plan to use to address the invitations when they arrive in the mail any day now.  I also, picked up a glass container I plan to use on the sweets table.  I dabbled a bit with the wording for our programs.  Today I got a few more things crossed off my list.  I was stressed out like you about two months ago because I felt like nothing was getting done and no one was helping me.  So take it one day at a time and get done what you can.  Give your FI one or two things to work on like groomsmen gifts, songs you want the DJ/Band to play.  My bridesmaids aren’t helping me with any tasks all I’ve asked them to do is get their dress and shoes.  So don’t worry about them being out of state. You’ll be fine

Good luck
