I’m saying this with a lot of tough love…everything is about them all the time because you let them do that.  I saw the post about your sister as well, and it seems that they view you as a doormat.

I would suggest sticking up for yourself in everything, have the confidence and strength to believe in you! 

You’ll end up being very unhappy on your wedding day, and afterwards have a lot of regret, if you let them ruin it for you.

Good Luck!

I don’t even know what to say. It’s unfortunate she’s such a drama queen and you feel she’s going to stress you out throughout your wedding.

I guess just try to minimize the time you have to be available to hear her complain throughout the day. For example, maybe you could get ready for the wedding separately from your sister and your mother. 

From reading your other post about your sister I think it’s too bad you get pushed around by them all the time, but unless you do stand up for yourself about something it certainly won’t get better. Definitely pick your battles, but you can’t allow them to run roughshod over your entire wedding.

You could always use some psychology. You say they don’t want to help, but maybe you could find some easy and (totally unimportant) task that will keep them away from you throughout the day and talk it up like it’s super important and prestigious – maybe even hint that you want to give it to someone else. I do understand your desire to avoid conflict, but I am feeling it may be unavoidable here.
