(((((HUGS))))) I understand holiday blues. I’m 1500mi from the rest of my family (in the USA, other family even way farther away), and while we aren’t the closest clan, this is the time of the year where there’s a lot of family stuff going on. It’s really tough, but you have your hubby with you to help you through. It’ll be ok in the end.

I’m sorry you’re going through so many issues at once. Each piece will slowly be resolved, and in 5months one week (squeeee!), you’ll have your ceremony and can stop worrying about his parents. What about a compromise with your mom? You can ask for a small amount to give her a chance to follow through. If she doesn’t, you aren’t really out anything since you are planning to pay for everything without her. If she does, you can put the money in a general fund and tell her that it paid for [insert random bits here that she agreed with]. Just a thought if you wanted another option than just saying yes to a lot or no to any.

You’ll be ok. You’re doing a great job already having to deal with planning a Destination Wedding and juggling all of the tangential stuff. You’re a fantastic friend to be sensitive enough to wait on the one Bridesmaid or Best Man and giving your Maid/Matron of Honor time to grieve and deal with her partner. I’m so impressed with how you’re holding up! Keep your chin up and vent on here as often as you need.

I’ve had days or weeks where I’ve felt like what you described and while I don’t have any advice, I just wanted to remind you that it will get better and things will calm down. Try to tackle one issue at a time, maybe? Make a list of everything that’s stressing you out and figure out how to solve each one?
