I totally understand what you’re going through, and i’m so sorry you’re having to deal with this! I too am in a similar situation, except it’s my Mother that’s been causing me stress. She just recently got married this past October for the 2nd time and is comparing every decision I make (budget wise) to the way she chose to do things for her wedding. She’s paying for almost everything is being soooo cheap about everything I want! My advice to you is to sit down and talk about the wedding budget with your fiance’. Get a monetary committment from him for the whole wedding budget so that you don’t have to go to him for every little purchase along the way. As for help from your SIL, leave her alone if she’s not willing to help and look to your other bridesmaids or even a close girlfriend who’s not in your wedding party. You still have time to make this July wedding happen, but you’re going to have to committ a lot of your free time to planning. Also, look into an affordable wedding planner to take some of the weight off you if it’s in your budget.

you and your Fiance need to sit down and make a list and then a budget for each item on the list. Besides your Fiance quit expecting people to help you, this is your wedding so get your butt in gear and plan it. Pick a couple of bridesmaid dresses and let SIL pick from those.

It is definately doable to make this work, but you really need to get things planned ASAP or vendors will be booked and you will be forced to push it back.

The thing I’ve learned in this process, after waiting around so long for help, was that this is MY wedding and if I want it to be a success (or to pull it off at all), it’s all on me.  So, you have to decide right now if doing all of this on your own is worth it to you.  If it’s not worth the stress, then you might want to cancel your wedding.  I have chosen to stick it out and it’s hard, but I think it will be worth it in the end 🙂
