I think it’s normal for some and not others. Sounds a lot like what I was going through before my wedding! Honestly wedding planning was a PITA because my Mother-In-Law was so hard to deal with and just made EVERYTHING difficult! You just have to try to keep calm and remember that your wedding day will be wonderful regardless of the drama that goes down beforehand. Hang in there, it is almost over!

@Nola: She sounds a little off the rocker but Im sure its only because of wedding planning. I never knew my Mother-In-Law was so crazy until planning our wedding! I don’t understand why your Future Mother-In-Law would give up her seat for your FBILs Gf of 1 week! HOpefully theyll break up between now and then? Also, since your wedding is still 2 months away maybe more people than you realize wont be able to come so the extra 2 people wont be that big of a deal.

In my experience, whenever you plan something (party, conference, event, sports, project) that involves 100 people you will have lots of practical issues. But try not to get too emotional about it and just answer the questions.

Remember this: No one can read your mind! Unless you clearly told everyone that there are no ‘plus one’s they have no idea that this would be a problem. Of course it’s wedding etiquette not to invite anyone extra to a wedding but in reality very few people know about wedding etiquette, unless you’re planning a wedding yourself you probably have no clue…

As for your best friend, I can understand her not wanting to travel long distance on her own so I’d try and fit a space for her brother if I were you. I wouldn’t do it for all guests but I would make an exception for my best friend.

My in-laws don’t even acknowledge that we’re planning a wedding.
