I am the kind of person who always focuses on the negatives so I have been having your problem where all of the small things that go wrong frustrate me and leave me discouraged.  I would say try to focus on the good, even though that is easier said than done.  You are marrying the love of your life and you are celebrating with a party with your friends and family.  You are going to look absolutely beautiful on your wedding day and going to have amazing photos to show your kids or future generations.  I am also partially saying this to myself because I need to hear it sometimes too.

Maybe take a month break from the wedding planning and focus on your relationship with your fiance or something completely outside of the wedding.  You should enjoy this time and not just stress about every little detail.

For your FI’s sisters, there might be something that comes up later on.  Can they do hair or makeup?  Are they good with DIY?  I am sure you can come up with some tasks for them on the day of the wedding (handing out tips, collecting the gifts, etc).

I feel you. It seems like EVERY step along the way something has gone wrong. First our venue double booked our date after we had already booked other vendors for the date we originally booked.. We had to move the wedding to the next weekend. THEN the DJ & photobooth company we had booked disappeared off the face of the earth, along with our deposit. I had to remove my sister from the bridal party because she wouldn’t cooperate (long story). And the calligrapher wrote the wrong state on 25% of our invitation envelopes which I paid a RIDICULOUS amount on postage to receive….

One thing I have learned from planning this wedding – NO ONE does their job properly!

no 1 – it’ll be fine. You’ll get to know them. They are professional. They’ll do a great job. The fact they know your Fiance a little bit is a bonus  

No 2 – she’s a cow. Thankfully the manager knew what she was doing. You have an amazing dress so don’t think about it any more. She had crap sales technique.

no 3 – it’s done. 

No 4 – do you have trading standards or similar you can take this up with?

no 5 – tell them “that’s lovely you’d like to be a special part of our day. I agree.  What ideas do you have?”  Let them come up with something.


it’s crap that goes with wedding planning. I think every bride here hits the ‘sod this lets elope’ phase.  You’ve got some way to go.  As pp says maybe take a little break from it. And try not to get so worried about other peoples attitude.  Learn to shrug and get on with what you want anyway.

That’s just wedding planning bee. There will always be things like this, people and family members will butt in when not wanted, you’ll have rude unresponsive vendors..and so on and so on. Try not to focus so much on the negatives or you will drive yourself crazy.

The consultant was way out of line btw.
