Oh I am sorry all that is happening! Just remember what the wedding is really all about. I know how easy it is to get wrapped up in wanting everything to be just the way everyone else does it, but just remember you are marrying the man of your dreams. You will not look back and think “wow I am so glad I had a rehearsal dinner” you will think about the ceremony and how amazing that moment was.

I went to a wedding two years ago and they rehearsed a couple of hours before the wedding and it was fine. Honestly, I totally forget there was supposed to be a rehearsal dinner!

On another note however, if the rehearsal the night before is super important to you (like I dont want Fiance to see me that day until that first moment walking down the aisle) then I think you should express  that to your parents. Tell them how much it means to you, and maybe even offer to pay for their gas if that is their issue, or offer a place to stay so they don’t have to drive twice. But seriously, an hour and fifteen isn’t that long. I feel like if you express how much it means to you, they will (or at least should!) suck it up!

PLUS, if your fiance’s parents don’t want to be there because they don’t want to see each other then that’s fine. Have it without them, it is THEIR loss!

Those caterers sound really annoying and unprofessional. I would call like an annoying bridezilla until I got some answers if I was you, and send some emails!

Maybe you can do your hair yourself, or find a friend to do it? I suck at doing my hair but my cousin is really good and so is my mom so I think they will be doing my hair on my wedding day. Maybe you can even find a different stylist if you really want to get it done porfessionally. 🙂

You have options! I am sorry you are feeling so overwhelmed though. Just remember that it will all be worth it, even if nothing turns out the way you expected it to!

I would call my orginial hair stylist back and see if she can reccomend or help you out finding a replacement! I would hope she would be more than willing to since she cancelled on you so close to the date!

And I know things can get frustrating when planning a wedding. I felt that way as well when I was planning, but now my date is close approaching and things seem to be falling into place! Perhaps not everything is ideal, but all I know is that I’ll be married to my Fiance on May 12th come hell or high water and that is all that matters.

@dresscrazy34:  I totally agree! She seems to be acting really unprofessional about the whole thing. If I were you, I wouldn’t risk her being too busy and would just go with someone else!
