So sorry for what you are going through! Believe it or not I think you have the lesser of two evils – too much unwanted help and input is totally taxing. My one Bridesmaid or Best Man is a lovely lovely girl but she has always been super bossy and is doing it even now. It drains me! LOL.


I think you should send a mail to everyone saying that you need people’s input here and there and maybe have lunch together and get them psyched for the wedding?

Hey there! I kind of agree with Flanders… Maybe your girls aren’t being pushy because they don’t know how stressed you are/trying to butt out! I know that in my own case my girls will be the same way, but I hope to plan everything to a T with my fiance, and then the bridal party can help us put things into action IF we are stressing. Too much input from both sets of parents has been too much already, and I’m kind of glad my girls are like this.  

I think the best thing to do is try to hint your stress. Maybe they need it spelled out. If they have never been married themselves or have never been involved in a wedding then they clearly have NOOOOO idea how stresssful it really can be. Some people just aren’t psychic 😛 Maybe you can give them set deadlines for when you want certain things done, or you can book days for you guys to get together and do things (i.e. make the invitations together while watching girly movies). 

P.S- if they get upset with you for these tiny little favours/pushing them to get these important things done…then maybe they aren’t true friends. A good friend will understand 🙂
