Breathe! things were very stressful for me as well those last couple weeks – try and stay calm.

as far as RSVPs go i would start calling around to see if you can get direct answers from people, i had to email/facebook a few people i never recieved RSVP’s from.

There isnt much you can do about your dress, but i would be calling ever other day to make sure they are on top of it, i might suggest even dropping in there later this week to see the progress.

honestly – i went without a bachelorette party, i secretly wanted one but it just wasnt in the cards (and i sure as hell wouldnt pay for other peoples drinks and dinner for my own bachelorette party! covering my own is one thing but everyone? no way) instead my husband and i had all our friends and whoever was in town already get together the thursday before for a big shindig at the hotel where everyone was staying – we drank until the early hours and it was more fun than any bachelorette party would be, we were all in wedding mode.

Try and hang in there, cling your Fiance – its all about the two of you anyway – try not to let other people bring you down or make you feel guilty. enjoy these last few weeks, they go by so fast.

My Bridal shower was a nightmare…it was thrown at a friend of my moms house we played two games, ate, opened gifts, and it was over. It was a personal shower….I got 2 pairs of underwear and a nighty underwear from one WELL OFF guest with stickers on them from the Dollar General undies on clearence for 59 cents and the nighty 1.99! Next gift opened a BIBLE!!! Are you kidding me! Next gift a $30 gift certificate to an adult movie arcade…NOT A TOY SHOP seriously a place with just boothes that you stick money in and get to watch 5 minutes of a movie
 
OP, I got to say, reading this cracked me up.  You are right, that is entertaining.  If I opened a Bible and a gift certificate to an adult movie arcade I have no idea what I would do!!!  I hope things do get better for you!  At least you have a great sense of humor.

Did you guys pay for the wedding? If not, then say screw it, don’t show up, and run off somewhere and elope. To hell with all the crappy people in your life!! They are already bitching, so give them something to really bitch about ๐Ÿ™‚

@MrsSl82be: I second this wholeheartedly. I am so tired of reading how these girls let everyone else ruin their weddings! So many people are needlessly self centered and rude, what happened to putting aside your own shit and putting a little effort into making your friend/daughter/whatever’s wedding feel special?! I am now officially terrified for my shower this weekend.

Seriously OP if anyone starts acting like a jerk at your wedding grab your new husband and take off, you don’t need to deal with their drama!

@hellomrsko: I know!! It honestly shocks me that it seems MORE common places for people to act like assholes than not. Its crazy! My family was not like this at all. We paid for the wedding, and although people had opinions, no one pushed anything on us, and we got final say in everything.

Seriously. If you aren’t losing a ton of money, cancel the wedding and elope to somewhere wonderful! Some brides lose sight of the fact that they do not get to dictate everyone’s life for their 18 month engagement, but some lose sight of the fact that the wedding, first and foremost, needs to be what the bride and groom want as a couple. After that, do what you can to make your guests comfortable and happy, but if you aren’t getting that first part, the wedding (not the marriage, mind you, just the wedding) is a waste of your time and effort.

Do what makes you happy; it sounds like no one has given you any reason to concern yourself with their opinion!

@MrsSl82be: My fiance’s family has been wonderful with the exception of his dad (insisted on a rehearsal dinner at a restaurant I know is awful and had a fit when we told him we really didn’t even want to have one, keeps telling Fiance “why buy the cow…” etc.) but he’s miserable anyway, so we just ignore him. And my family just tells me to do whatever.

I just don’t understand why so many people feel the need to be so damn narcassitic?! This isn’t about you, get over yourself! Obviously, I’m really not a fan of society lately.

@hellomrsko: Totally agree, except my Father-In-Law is awesome, my husban’ds mother is miserable, but luckily, we no longer talk to her .

I also am not a fan of society. People suck
