I think it truly does!  I don’t know what it is.  I have never had any complaints or problems until I got engaged.  Now I have people either getting mad at me for not wanting interference in EVERYTHING or people trying to take everything over.  Thanks for sharing this though.  It made me feel not so alone.

I’m sorry that you’re dealing with all of this.  I think the best thing you can do is be as sweet as you can.  You might be right that your grandmother is having some mental problems now and if that’s the case, none of it is her fault.  I would just try to be there for her and make sure that the family members that she is still talking to know that.  I have no idea what your sister’s problem is, but I’d stick with killing her with kindness, too.  Don’t give her any real responsibility as Maid/Matron of Honor, just in case.  Let the other bridesmaids handle things.  If only for the kids’ sake, be nice and ignore whatever else she says/does until after the wedding.  If things don’t get better, talk to her about it after everything is done.
