Just don’t tell any more details to anyone.  My life got a lot easier when I learned to say “you’ll see the flowers/my hair/the dress/the cake/etc at the wedding.”  They’ll still probably offer unsolicited opinions, but they can’t criticize your decisions when they don’t know the details.

Vent here anytime you need to! Um it is NOT mean or selfish to wear your glasses or no nail varnish or any other appearance-related details. [email protected] making you feel like it’s about these little details anyway? Sure they’re fun (for some) and will be in the pictures, but at the end of the day YOUR wedding is about celebrating the love between YOU AND YOUR FI! 

You special day can never be vanilla by the very virtue of it being your special day. Tell them the exact words you wrote in your post – you only care about making yours and his special day. Thank them kindly for their opinions and that you are (sincerely) grateful that they, too, want to celebrate your love for each other. Hopefully being reminded about what the day truly is will mitigate the pressure.

Stick to your guns! It’s your day!
