I just want 1 day of doing nothing wedding related, to just relax and not think about what we still have to do. I have just under 5 months left and if this is how im going to feel for the next 5 months o god its gonna be long. Everybody is just stressing me out I have a bridesmaid from hell, I have a Future Sister-In-Law from hell lets just say all my bridesmaids are from hell excluding my Maid/Matron of Honor thank god shes is here, shes the only one keeping me sane.
My finace is wonderful but the stress of planning and paying for a wedding ourselves is defiently taking its toll on us. His mother is crazy and keeps adding people to the guest list that we dont know. When I had to limit the amount of MY friends that could come because the guest list was getting out of hand. We tried talking to her last night about it and all that came from that was her trying to erase a bunch of family members so that her friends could come and getting angry because she wanted all these people to come. Ugh she is honestly crazy.
Sorry for the vent, I just keep holding it in because nobody really understands where I’m coming from. I’m hoping it gets better from here on out. HA yah right!

Wedding planning is very stressful. We all have stories to tell. At this point, I would invite all your friends you want. I was tell Mother-In-Law she needs to fork over money for her friends or invites will not be sent to them.
Next, what are your BM’s doing that is so stressful? If they are being openly hateful I would seriously get rid of them all and keeo your Maid/Matron of Honor as your attendant.

Yeah, start giving Future Mother-In-Law a cost per person, tell her she can pay for her friends.

That’s not even my worry right now because she said she would and then we came back and told her that its not just the food your adding another table of people so thats another center piece more favours and more wine (which my parents are paying for) so she said she would, but there has to be a limit on how many people she can add because she was the one who said she wanted us to have a small intimate wedding. And now shes added about 20 people onto the list people that we dont really know. I had to limit who I invited to our wedding because I had to make sure our parents could invite a few family friends, but shes gone over board with this ugh its so fustrating!

You are paying, I don’t understand why she even is allowed to invite people?? Tell her she can,t and that’s it. If she wants her friends to come, she’s got to pony up the dough. We paid for our wedding, and NO ONE got to invite anyone but me and Fiance

@mrskrumpet: If your parents are paying, I would have them call her and say she can not invite those 20 extra people unless she helps pay for their favors, a centerpiece, and other costs.
