I’m just days away from my small, low key wedding and my mother decides to blow up at me. After many heated discussions, I gather that she’s under a lot of stress about her health and my dad’s health, and it seems that now she’s freaked out about marrying off her oldest child (first of us to get married). Despite that she was incredulous that my FMIL was having trouble letting go of my FI. Fellow brides, do you find that instead of people keeping you calm and happy about the is whole wedding thing that you find yourself being the one to keep people from going nuts?

YES! My wedding planning has been stress-ridden thanks to everyone else! My fiance and I are laid-back and wanted something small and relaxed, but at every turn someone has something to complain about. My mother wanted us to elope, but now that we are having a wedding she has all of these expectations and she gets really upset about very irrelevant things. It is very frustrating.

flexitarian123: yes. My mom has been making me bananas throughout this planning process and I’m constantly having to chill her out. I’m glad my mom is around to help me plan but some days I just need a break.
