Sorry you are so stressed. 

Did you ask her to biy makeup? You didnt say you didnt require her. If you did, and she doesnt normally wear it, I can understand her stress.

I am not sure its a problem she found someone else to straigten her hair. It probably saves her money.

And stuff happens like losing invitations. I am going to a wedding in a few weeks and even though I made the reservation for the hotel, I have no idea where it is. I dont have the invite or save the date any longer so I am going to have to ask the bride. (It went into a scrapbook I made for her).  It happens.

I understand you are stressed and this is annoying, but from what I can interpret from this post it all sounds minor and most of it sounds reasonable.

Take a deep breath.  She’s probably feeling like she’s not the center of attention and is trying to be.  You are a day before me.. and I DEFINATELY feel like we are at the place where we need to just ENJOY being brides.. we have 1 week left.  Let her play clueless.. if her hair and make up isnt perfect- it wont ruin your pictures of you and your hubby.  My Fiance and I are sending a detailed itinerary out this week so every one has the same information. That may help- but honestly- ask one of your bridesmaids to deal with her day of and just enjoy!

From your post, I think your Future Sister-In-Law is possibly a little nervous and is just triple checking everything to make sure she is on time and doing the right thing. I’ve lost invitations before and honestly, my family doesn’t really discuss these things.

Also, I’m 20 and I don’t wear make up. I didn’t even wear it for our engagement pictures, so I would have no idea how to put it on properly either. Maybe she knows someone she is more comfortable with than you (not meant offensively, just someone she may know better) or maybe she is worried you’ll be too busy on your wedding day to help her. She may also have a hairdresser she goes to regularly and prefers.

I wouldn’t stress about it, try to relax and enjoy you wedding 🙂 It sounds like she just wants to be prepared and comfortable for your wedding.
