Deep breaths. You’ll get through this! My mom is the same way with the whole “we” have to do this or that, when it’s definitely just me doing it. I’ve learned to just ignore it. 

Make sure not to do everything in one day. Spread it out over a few weekends to make it more manageable.

Good luck!

Deep breaths!!! Back away from the invitations for a couple days 🙂 I agree, don’t try to get them all done in one shot. Could you invite a friend over for help or even just to keep you company one evening while you get some done? I did ours 10/night, it was much more manageable. And $1/invitation is great!!! You’re doing an awesome job 🙂 Don’t worry about the envelopes, just what you want, and order a sample of a silver lined one and send that one to your mom 😉

There is nothing about a wedding that should cause this much stress.

Randy from SYTTD was in Vancouver a couple of weeks ago. The words he said that stood out most for me were ” If you are mature enough to get married, you need to be mature enough to stand up to your parents.”

Take a break. Take a breath. Take a time out.

I feel you. I just FINALLY got mine out last week. It was a nightmare…I never thought it could be so problematic. First, money was the issue, invitations are expensive…they just are. postage costed me an arm and a leg too. And mine ended up with some assembly required..which was ALLOT of work. I did ONLY what I felt like doing with the inviations, no more.no less….I stopped listening to people eventually and did them how I wanted them. It’s all about following through with what you ahve so far. Forget silver lined envelopes if it’s causing you too much trouble, or if ordering them will cause any delays if you are on a time crunch…and you do NOT have to provide postage for the return envelopes for the response cards…so I would leave that out and if you find you have some room in your budget at the end of everything, then consider it.  Go to the post office and they will help you.
