@eraff32:  I had this idea in my head when I got engaged that all my closest girl friends would help me plan, we would all try on dresses and laugh and drink champagne, and it would be fun fun fun for 18 months of planning.  And in reality, it was not like that at all. There were some fun moments but overall I almost never discussed planning with my girls. They either already had their day or were dreaming of their own day, and couldnt care less what color table cloths I chose. Some days I hated planning so much that I didnt even want to discuss it or think about it.

My point is, your wedding won’t be as fun for your girls as it is for you. It’s your wedding, not theirs. Their life is going on as usual, even though your brain (like mine was) is in wedding mode 24/7. Maybe your 5th Bridesmaid or Best Man is having trouble planning the wedding of her dreams, and isn’t in the mood to celebrate the fact that you booked your venue.

@Bostongrl25:  I completely agree with you.

@eraff32:  Just stick to your guns.  You obviously love your friends and want them to be involved in your wedding planning process, but remember that it is your and your fiance’s day.  My advice is to keep everyone (even the two bridesmaids who are giving you gruff) included in the email chains and texts.  If your eager bridesmaid who can’t wait to be hitched starts getting even more outrageous, you need to sit her down and have a one-on-one.  Explain that her “suggestions” are upsetting you–real talk.
