I would tell your sister that her expectations are way to high and you will be unable to do that. If she can’t change her idea of a shower which she is supposed to not have any input into and which isn’t a requirement then I would step down as the Maid/Matron of Honor.

It sounds like you have been too nice up to this point. You need to sit her down, be frank with her and explain what you can and cannot do. You love her, and you are happy to plan for her (and appreciate what she did for you) but it can not take over your life. If she really wants everything she is asking for and is unwilling to compromise, then offer to step down as Maid/Matron of Honor.

Are there other Bridesmaid or Best Man who may be willing to chip in?

I think she needs someone to tell her that as a bride she cannot EXPECT to be thrown a shower or anything else, and if someone does, it is on their budget, time, and how they want to plan it.

Just a slight rant but I don’t understand how brides think they’re entitled to parties? I haven’t expected anything out of my Bridesmaid or Best Man. My Maid/Matron of Honor wanted my opinion on the bridal shower, and I gave it to her, but I didn’t demand crap and I let her plan to her budget and expectations on how she wanted it. It turned out beautiful and I was grateful!

If you can’t talk to your sister you need some help from mom or someone close. Your sister is being quite unreasonable and picky, especially to be monitoring your spending. You’re a saint for putting up with her demands this long, but it’s time to have a serious chat.
