Deedee-I believe that everybody was trying to help, but suggesting that she’s get MORE help if she didn’t just ramble on in one large paragraph. Then she pointed out that she didn’t need any help by biting everybody’s head off. If you want people to answer you, it’s just common to make it so that they can read what you write. I really don’t consider a scattered Future Mother-In-Law to be a wedding crisis. That would be something like your venue burning down!

#1: Relax…it’s all about getting married to the man you love. If someone else makes a fool out of themselves it’s on them.
#2: Dear God, please take an English class and learn how to spell and punctuate. You may not care, but your future employers will.

Everyone needs to calm down. Criticizing each other’s grammar is not why we’re on the boards. I’m sure all of us let our weaknesses show when we’re severely stressed. Stop being mean!

Yeah, you guys need to chill about the paragraph stuff. Messageboards aren’t a place to criticize others’ grammar. And yes, it’s all about marrying the man you love, but if that’s *all* it was about, we’d all be eloping instead of DIYing big parties. Right?
Dani, it sounds like you’re learning a lot about how certain famiily members deal with stress and being emotionally overwhelmed. Some seem less dependable than others, unfortunately. I think it’s good you’re figuring out who’s going to be most helpful as you get into crunch time. That way, you’re not depending on your sister or Future Mother-In-Law to do anything too important for you on your wedding day, you know?
Good luck, and I’m sorry things have been such a pain in the a$$!

jeez people she was just trying to show that she used paragraphs. I am sorry that you had a bad shower with your relative. My cousins shower was crazy her Future Mother-In-Law was fine but her future aunt in law(?) who is actually her Fiance godmother was a total witch, she was just nasty. I don’t know what her prob is but anyway. I would try to lighten Future Mother-In-Law load with the rehersal dinner. If she really is worrying Fiance he might want to talk to her about it honestly or with his dad or siblings (if available). She might have just forgotten, hopefully that is all.
Some people just can’t be happy for others and that might be the prob with your sister. Just remember to take deep soothing breaths if things get stressful with family. At least it sounds like your friends were there for you.
