It’s your wedding, it’s not right, but I’ve learned to trust a parent’s instincts when it comes to their kids…you do not want a totally exhausted 7 year old on your hands just in time for the ceremony, 7 isn’t a baby, but it’s hell and gone from an adult too…if it were me I would drop it and let them do what they gotta to be ok, because kids don’t wanna foul things up either, they just can’t help it sometimes.

OMG it literally took me reading that entire post to figure out what “FG” meant.  LOL

If MOH thinks her daughter won’t be able to handle that day, you better take her word for it Nona is right, but it does sound like she’s being difficult about the travel arrangements, can’t she come at 9 and FG come later?

It sounds like your MOH is being difficult and focusing on herself instead of you.  It’s annoying, but you need to pick your battles.  Depending on when the wedding starts, she might be right that it is a long day for the flower girl.  If there is still enough time to do their hair starting at 10:30, then I would let them arrive late.  You can still get started with your hair at 9am with the others.  It’s hard when people complain about your planning and care more about their own convenience then making you happy, but some people are just like that.  Don’t let it get you down.  The wedding will still be great if they do their hair later.  This one just isn’t worth fighting about.

I think it’s probably too long of a day for FG.  I would cancel her hair, and have her show up at picture time.

This is why I’m not having children in my wedding party. What a pain. Btw, the kid is 7, not 2. Why wouldn’t she be able to handle the day? It’s not physical labor. She can handle it, I’m sure. She is old enough to not have a meltdown.

@tnt1128:  I agree with everything you just said. She’s SEVEN, not two. She’s not gonna be balancing on one foot on the top of a column the whole day. She’ll be in a hotel room. She can nap, eat, use the bathroom, etc. She goes to school from morning to afternoon, I’m guessing. Why is MOH being such a diva? Her precious tot will be fine. When I was 7, I knew better than to freak out and throw a tantrum.
