Overwhelmed with everyone, not the weddings.

I’m going to be really direct here.  If you’re really being honest about wanting the “insanity” to stop, there’s only one way to do it.  Have a lovely small courthouse wedding in July, tell your family and friends that as adults you’ve decided that this is the way you want to get married and cancel the rest of it.  If you’re determined to go through with holding 3 additional “weddings” in multiple locations over 2015, you gotta suck it up.  It’s going to be crazy.  Girl, it’s a choice you and your FI make.  You can’t complain if you go with the crazy plan.  Nobody’s forcing you.

Foundmygermanprince:  I’m sorry hon, whenever you do something out of the ordinary it’s going to be a topic of conversation, and four weddings with four dresses in four cities is going to qualify there.  When someone brings up your wedding answer their immediate question in a close-ended way and shift focus to something else.  Good luck!

You’ve got way too much planned. Four weddings is excessive and that’s where your chaos and stress are coming from. Accept that not everyone is required to watch you get married and cut out two or even three events.  Your weddings are a constant topic of conversation because they’re unusual, extravagant and over-the-top.
