I’m with you! I just posted a *very long* ramble about dramas i have with inviting guests to what i had planned as a tiny, relaxed wedding, and i wish people would think about things from the perspective of the bride. It sounds selfish, but we’re the ones having to do a balancing act between every person we talk to about the wedding and it just takes away the pleasure out of it. 

I’m so excited for the day after the wedding where I can just be in a bubble with my new husband and escape the drama of the wedding itself.

@bs942:  I think I would be a super-bridezilla by now in your situation! I would have texted back right away BRING YOUR OWN STRIPPERS THEN. They want topless waiters? GET HITCHED AND HAVE YOUR OWN HENS. You want the stripper to pay attention to you specifically? ARE YOU REALLY THAT DESPERTE?! Or to the person wanting a specific seat and specific people to be seated with them? HAVE YOUR OWN WEDDING AND SIT THERE.

Go away, its our day not yours and you will survive one f^$&%$Y%$*#^*&*@-ing night!!!

Just tell them that you are still working on the party, and you will let them know the plan once it’s finalized.  Lather, rinse, repeat.

You may have opened a can of worms by trying to be accommodating in the first place.  That doesn’t always set the right precedent.

@bs942:  “Im so sorry, but that won’t be possible.”

Repeat as necessary.

Ignore all of them. Just take a deep breath and do your hen/wedding/shower the way you want it. You have pushy guests? Well, push back!

(By the way the stripper is usually for the bride on hen night. Whoever it is that wanted her own stripper on YOUR night can wait for her turn to get married or hire the naked guy in her own time.)
