My Darling Husband and I got super stressed and more easily agitated right before our wedding too.

I’m not sure what the problem is with his family arriving 2 days before the wedding?

Why is them coming 2 days early a problem? Are you picking them up at the airport?

Are they invited to the party 2 days before?

Have they been told about it yet?

I don’t really see any problem with them coming only 2 days before. They’ll be there for the wedding and that’s what matters.

Are you upset that they will not be there sooner or do you want them to come only on the day of the wedding? Either way, I don’t think you need to stress too much. Your Fiance will be about to entertain his family while you are out with your friends. There is a lot that goes into wedding planning, so being stressed is natural. Just take a deep breath and focus on what matters!

P.S. yay for Date twins (we are almost there, just a bit longer and the madness will be behind us!)

what exactly is the problem?  are they arriving too late or early for your liking or is their arrival upsetting your party plan??

your husbands family are arriving for their son/brothers wedding – be happy about that and try to relax

@Salvia:  My sister (MOH) couldn’t get the days off work. She came 2 days before the wedding and left the day after. 

I wish she could have spent more time with me, but the important part was that she was there to stand up with me on the day of my wedding.

Sometimes things like this are out of your control. It’s not worth getting stressed/upset about, there is more than enough else to actually stress about.

I’d just be happy that they can make it. Sometimes it’s seeing the situation from another perspective of overseas families that cannot afford to make it out that makes the situation seem less important.

I really wouldn’t worry about it.

My sister/MOH can’t take the time off work because she is coming a whole week for my shower (which is April 1st) and staying until Easter (April 8th) so she is flying in on Wednesday night and my wedding is on a Saturday. I’m cool with it because at least she can make it! She is also leaving the next morning to go to Buffalo where she is in a friends wedding. Her and her boyfriend will be in the car with us to the airport so it’s cool.

This is really confusing. I think we need more information.

@Salvia:  I’m confused–what do u mean what if they come on the big day? i thought they were coming 2 days before

Maybe they didnt realize that it is important to you that they come earlier–tell them you’re freaking out and anxious and you want them there earlier, theyll probably change their plans if they know it’s important to you

So you are mad that they need to work???  They are not choosing to only be there 2 days before.  They can’t get the time off work.

Sounds like you’re just freaking out since you haven’t really explained about why you’re upset.

Is it because you weren’t expecting them at all? 

Is it because they will be jet lagged?

Is it because two days before the wedding is not a good time to be going to a party?
