stop enabling her.  it is her wedding.  if she doesn’t want to take the time to plan, why should you drive yourself crazy.  you have a husband and kids, and a life of your own.

your job of MOH is not to book venues and take the bride to all her appointments

Well you’re definitely going waaaaay above and beyond… But if her wedding is THIS october… Yeah she should get moving! And I see why you wouldn’t just let her drown herself if you love her so much.

Sounds like she’s just one of those brides who don’t like planning. Some people just don’t get into it, and find all the decision making to be exhausting. Her comment about “can the wedding be over” really stood out as her wanting all the fuss to be over!

It’s common for folks like this to just elope or have a really small, private ceremony… But sometimes family just won’t let them get away with that, heh.
