I’m not married, but I also have some alcoholics in my family- so I sypathize. (I also have some family members who have successfully gone through AA, and they swear by it.)

Could you ask another family member or a member of your bridal party to keep an eye on your fathger and brother? How about asking the bar staff to keep an eye out for those two and cut them off before they get too stupid. If you have a wedding planner or coordinator you could ask them to keep an eye on your relatives.

MrsEnn2Bee:  Firstly, Congratulations on your upcoming nuptuals! Take a second and just breath…. you are right on track to have a wonderful day with you and your soon to be hisband.

While we had picked out our 1st dance song months before our wedding…  we hadn’t decided on many other song selections such as the bouqet toss, garter toss, or the entrance songs for the bridal party. We decided that 6 days before! I think there are plenty song lists out there that may give you some good starting points.


Also, do you have a day of coordinator? If so you can communicate your concern about the drinkers and have him/her keep an eye on the bar and who may be getting a tad out of hand. That way he/she can wrangle them in and you won’t have to worry about babysitting or innappropriate behavior.


Lastly, You’re right…RELAX. The last few weeks vendors were asking questions I had already answered, finally wanting  clarification about non factors, and trying to modify previous arrangements…I made it a point not to let ANYONE stress me out. I really just picked my battles…which were ver few and made sure that I stayed as calm and collected as possible.

So enjoy these last few days, weeks, and don’t foget to give us an update when the time comes!
