My family has been so difficult during the entire engagement. My parents were upset with the date and repeatedly threatened not to come, wanted to invite more guests (by themselves) than our venue will hold despite not offering to help pay until a few weeks ago, and making comments like, “You’re already ruining [the date], we just want to get it over with.” She repeatedly offers to help, and then when I give her seomething simple, she doesn’t do it and suggests other things for her to do that we don’t even want. My mother is horrified that we aren’t planning on having a cake topper and goes on about how everyone will think less of us for not having it. My sister, the MOH, who has way more time on her hands than I do, complained that making the emergency kit (despite me sending her a list of what it needed over a month prior) was “too hard” and she needs my help.
I have been doing almost all the planning because my fiance works 85 hours a week (I work full time). I wanted to elope, but he really wanted a wedding and it’s all falling on me. He does help when he can, but then gets upset when I complain about the wedding and said it even frustrates him to the point of calling the whole thing off and breaking up. I have a month to go and it just makes me want to cry all the time. Why is this so hard?

O my goodness, your so close, try to hang in there. Its so stressful right now, if it’s not done don’t worry about it, i’m sure you’ve already completed all the major stuff. Just try to relax.

Oh honey. Get a wedding planner. Really. It helps. Just remember this is suppose to be FUN. Tell your family where to put their comments (easier said than done, I know) and get another bridesmaid to help you if your sister insist on being a pain in the ass. It is YOUR day. Remember that. My FH and I told ourselves we weren’t going to do anything that we felt like we HAD to do for this wedding. So you know, I couple of friends aren’t in the wedding party and some aren’t invited. But after the initial drama, we feel better for it.
