No joke, Ron! I’ve currently got a stepmother who has been embroiled in a deadlock with my extended family for the past year after she refused to come to my sister’s college graduation because my mom would also be there. Things have been chilly since then and now my dad is all gung-ho about everyone working it out before the wedding so “she doesn’t feel excluded from a family event” even though last year, she CHOSE not go to to a major family event! It’s exhausting because at this point, I really don’t care if she comes or not since she doesn’t seem to want to actually celebrate, she just wants me to want her there so she can say she’s not coming. My dad wants it all worked out and is using my wedding as the catalyst to make that happen, which sucks, because it’s my wedding and it’s turning into being all about her. ARGH.

That is currently the most stressful thing. Compared to that, everything else is a cake walk. Like you, I just can’t wait for August 21st when I don’t have to worry about planning it anymore and can go on my honeymoon!

I have been so stresses with my Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man. It seems like my Maid/Matron of Honor causes drama for no reason or is jealous that Bridesmaid or Best Man is always with me. I literally said, “You little girls need to solve this problem and get over yourselves.”

I said no way am I stressing and started to work on the “Just Married” banner. To not stress, I work on DIYs.

My Fiance is a love child and what I am most dreading is seeing his mom with his father and how his half brothers will respond to this…. ugh!

Deep breaths ladies!
