1) I’d give dad a deadline, and tell him if he hasn’t got the vases done by X date that you are going to order something else which he may not like.  Then just go with it.  Or if you don’t care about flowers (which I think is ok, I sure didn’t give a damn), just let him roll with it.

2)Stay somewhere else before the wedding.  Rent a hotel room and get ready there.  Invite who you want to the hotel with you.  It will be the best $200 you could spend.

3)  Tell Bridesmaid or Best Man to meet you at a specific time after you are ready.  Maybe meet at the venue just before it starts.  Or whenever you need her.  It doesn’t matter if you all get ready together.

@andielovesj:  +1 Give dad a deadline, tell him if he doesnt get you the info you need the flowers are staying as the florist had them. 


2. If you don’t have anywhere else to go, close off one room of the house. Put someone in charge of keeping everyone out. You could also make some suggestions of what the family could do elsewhere so they’re out of the house. 


3. This doesn’t sound to me like they were fishing for an invite or that they want one. Theres a good possibility that they are trying to be helpful and be in the area in case the girls need anything. If you are still concerned tell them you want them to relax and after they drop the girl off someone else (name a person) will keep an eye on her and see them at the ceremony. 

4. Have some chaomile tea and decide what is most important to you about your wedding day. Keep reminding yourself of that. At the end of the day you wont remember who was in the house when you were getting ready or who was following in a car. If anyone says anything that might annoy you ignore them and move on. They’ll get the point.
