omg that would drive me crazy and am not a very tactful person so i woud have toldthem long ago to shut up about it! My group  has been fairly good about ot interjecting with too many opinions etc but there are comments here and there, and no matter how few they always piss me off. Future Mother-In-Law and Future Sister-In-Law have both made coments to FH when i wasnt there which he has repeated. They were actually very nice respectfull concerns but it still annoyed the sht outta me! I think no matter how frequent or infrequent the comments are though everyone has a peanut gallery! Im sorry yours is just so noisy!

I feel you hunny. My mom and I have had a fight about almost every aspect of the wedding. I understand that she and my father are paying for it, and yes she is getting things she wants. Let today we butted heads at lunch about napkin colors for goddess sake.  Also my sisters have bin pretty good bridesmaids. Except my younger sister is already bicthing about haveing to take the three days off I asked her too for the wedding and shower.But all three of them are agianst the cake topper I’m havein custom made and keep trying to get me to change my mind about it. Thankfully all the men inovoled have bin good about evrything. Excpet my Future Father-In-Law who is complaining about the purple tie I bought for him to wear. blah

Does anyone out there have a stress-free, drama-free family who absolutely respects the opinions of the two people who are getting married?

HAHAHAHAHA.

I fully believe that this type of family does not exist.

I feel your pain!

Ugh, I’m so sorry. I have been lucky enough (so far) to have a mostly stress- and drama-free planning process (although it’s only 4 months in to an 18 month engagement). I’ve had a few incidents, mostly because I already had everything laid out and don’t want suggestions, AND they were from people I hadn’t expected. It’s frustrating, especially when you feel like you can’t say anything about it.

@soyjoy222:  This!!!!!!

What’s worse – when they aren’t contributing time or resources AND they still complain that it is their party. Just bc it is your brother’s/son’s wedding does not mean you get a say in everything.

@cowgirlace:  I feel ya about MOB crying about “feeling left out”. Ugh, FI’s family is all about the “feeling left out” part. There’s nothing to be left out about! Vendor meetings are not like what you see on TV where everyone is happily eating cake, drinking champagne, and gushing over flowers. We have vendors/coordinators/planners galore and they have a handle on everything – really. No, really. They do.

It’s so much better when they aren’t paying. Then you don’t feel obligated to satisfy them. My family hasn’t said much because we have other family drama from a cousin right now, but I’m totally ok with that.
