My wedding is August 4th.  I have been stressing over the guest list.  People are adding whoever they want without asking.  My FMIL inviting her friend’s kids to the wedding who don’t even know the groom and didn’t ask us.  The past two weeks I wish we would have eloped.  I sometimes feel like the wedding is more stressful than it needs to be.  I hope I get over my funk and start to feel like a bride as friends and family fly home for the wedding.

Been there! Not with the MIL issue, though..At a point i was so sick and tired of all the planning i felt like you “I just want it to be over”. Take a small break if you can. Relax as much as you can.

 Now, i go through my wedding album and smile adoringly, because all the little details I worked so much for did pay in the end – they combined into a lovely, romantic and special wedding day. My mum didn’t help much and unfotunatelly my MIL passed away in March so i could not count on her love and encouragement..my sister gave me hell a couple of weeks before AND on the night before the wedding! I had a last single-day/night very, very weird, full with saddness and i remember thinking “I can’t wait to marry my love and go back to my own beautiful family and life” – we spent the last day a-part, though we’ve been living together for 7 years.

What you’re feeling it’s quite natural. It’s YOUR wedding, not your MIL’s!!!!!
