I am really sick of people forgetting stuff I tell them about the wedding or not noticing something I send them then asking for it a week later. My FIML is really getting under my skin I have long talks with her and then the next time we talk she forgets everything I told her, the latest thing was her “forgetting” her son is agnostic and trying to get us to use a preacher. I have said since the beginning even though I am Christan I don’t want a relgious ceramony. My Mom and I had a huge fight after I got engaged and didn’t talk for a year bc of the engagment long story I really dont feel like getting into it. Anyways a few months ago we made up and are taking it really slow but now she is excited for the wedding, I wanted to include her so I asked her to come with me to the table mock up so she can be a part of the planning. FI Mom now is annoyed I asked my Mom instead of her…she is going with me to the food tasting, having the rehersal dinner at her house, and helping with flowers. Since my Mom and I are working on our relationship I want to include her, I am so tired of trying to make everyone happy, this day is about my FI and I not everyone else. When I told my FMIL about my Mom going with me to the table mock up she made a snide comment and then asked if she wanted her to go to the food tasting instead of FMIL…really I asked my FMIL bc I want her there. My sister who is my MOH just dyed her hair orange I kid you not it is orange and she wants to keep it that color for the wedding…hell no. I’m getting to the last of my nerves with everyone I am about to go off.

FMIL can be tough for sure! I am sure she thinks she is “helping” in her own way. My MIL decided to start helping for the wedding the week of telling me all of the things that I should be doing that I was not doing and insisted they must be done. UGH I remember all the stress of planning. Just take a deep breath and try to remember what this day is about. It is not about who officiates, what color your MOH hair is, its about YOU AND YOUR SO committing your life together! 😀 Good luck dear, we are always here for you to vent to!
Oh, and dont try to make anyone happy but yourself and your SO on the day of your wedding. You will not and cannot make everyone happy. This is the one day that you truly can do what is right for you two only….because the day is ONLY about you two! 😀

I feel you. one of my bridesmaids asked me.. ‘wait when is the wedding?’ after I texted her about a planned roadtrip with another bm up to virginia for the bridal shower. I had to RESEND her the link to the website, explain that the roadtrip was talked about previously, and that it was for the bridal shower if she could get off work, and then I kindly reminded her the date of the wedding. I’m hoping she remembers to send back the RSVP so I can keep track of what she wants to eat and that she remembers that I can’t give her any lodging!!! My parent’s house is full!!!! lol

Oh lord. I so feel the pain in this thread! I’m getting married in…lets see…3 days, and I just got a text form my cousin (BM) that she has the wrong shoes, only ordered her dress a week ago (so hopefully it will be here by monday) and that she forgot to request the day off….no joke. Kinda wanna explode.
