I don’t get it!!!
Oh my god, as if I don’t have enough to think about already. And we have gone above and beyond to try and make good plans that are considerate of our guests. I already have divorced parents to consider, Italian must-do traditions, an outrageous budget that grew like a beanstalk, and a guest list way bigger than what I want and keeps changing…
But still it floods in…
The venue’s too far
My kid will be restless if there aren’t more kids
We have to invite these extra people
Why aren’t these people invited?
If my kid can’t come then I can’t come
Why do we have to get the tuxes so early?
Why are you doing it like that?
I want to do this
I don’t want to do that
Why do we have to do that?
I’m so sick of it! Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!

Yeah, I hear you. I wish people would just go with the flow, they always got shit to say no matter what you do. Just smile and say “because, this is what we decided would work best for us.” That usually shut them up for me. In my situation, they say it to my FI and he is a people pleaser so he tries to change everything to please them then I get mad.
Just try to stay calm, and take a percocet if you got it. (J/K)

Ugh that stinks. We got lucky and the people henpecking us stopped after we pushed our date back. I think other weddings have become henpecking priortity.
I’m sure you already know you won’t be able to please everyone. Just keep sticking to your guns and have the wedding you want! From past experience I know it’s not easy. I’m sure your family likes to be involved in every aspect from what you posted. Try to share as few details as possible and brush any negativity aside. You can do it!

@Sunshine09: Ugh, I know exactly how you feel! FI and I went thru this and at one point we were flirting with idea of just eloping. However, we knew we both wanted our immediate family members and it pretty much defeats the purpose of eloping. Planning got so stressful that FI and I basically said “f%$# it”….it’s our wedding, we will invite those who we want to share our special day with and those who have always been supportive and want our happiness. I’m not going to lie, it’s hard to stand on your ground infront of family but you have to because then things tend you get out of control.
