I don’t think it’s unreasonable to have a peaceful time on the day of your wedding. You will be stressed/emotional and having everyone around will just escalate everything. Perhaps a compromise? Send all of them out to breakfast and an activity or something while you are getting ready? But really, I would ask them to find elsewhere to stay. Just seems like too much stress to me. I think if you tell your mom how stressed it will make you and work together, she will understand. Good luck!!

I would feel the same way. If she insists on having them stay there, I would find a nearby hotel to stay at. I would go crazy having that many people around while I am getting ready!

Parents! I would tell her your feeling about not wanting everyone to see your dress and being able to make appointments and wanting things to be calm on your wedding morning. That’s going to be nuts! If you can’t get your way, I definitely think you should get a hotel room near the venue to get ready at. You won’t be able to/want to handle it!

You could say something like, “Mom, I was really hoping that you, me, and the bridesmaids could have some special time to ourselves before the wedding. Is there any way the relatives could stay elsewhere?”

Or something like that.

It’s not wrong of you at all! You just have to figure out the right way to bring it up..
