HUGS!!!! Don’t stress, some people are just not as laid back and need order and schedules. I understand both sides of this for sure!!

The good thing is that at least she is organized enough and wanting to be ready and organized for when you need her on your day rather than showing up late or at the last minute not having her hair done and screwing the timeline up. If I were you, I would suggest that she talk to her hairdresser about how long whatever she is having done will take and work it back from there. If your ceremony is for example at 2pm and you want to get there together and take some photos ahead of time, tell her to be ready and meeting up with you by 1pm – or earlier if you want to hang out and relax together. Add time for driving to the ceremony too. It’s all about working backwards from the times you are required to do something or be somewhere.

Oh, I’m sure she means no real harm she is just probably uber excited and a planner type person. Maybe you can have a bridal party meeting to go over some of the details and timeline.

try not to let it bother you. i know it’s nerve wracking but maybe she doesn’t realize exactly how much stress she’s putting on you? you’re much nicer to your girls than i am with mine. lol! i picked the dress for them and then had to hound them to get it ordered in time. i hope things get better for you!!!! sending hugs your way!!!

Ha! Sounds like my cousin. Just don’t let her stress you. From the looks of it your wedding day is pretty soon. She’s an adult. She can definitely plan her hair appointment without nagging you.
