    Every piece of drama in my wedding (and there was A LOT) came from my mother. And now my poor brother and his fiance are dealing with it as well.

    My mother, my grandmother, Future Sister-In-Law and my bridesmaid are giving me the most trouble. My mother is obsessing about me finishing school, because I totally busted my butt for 4 years of college so I could give up my dream of getting my master’s degree. She also is panicking about everything in the budget and how I’m going to make everything work. It’s not so much drama as it is her being stressed out which in turn stresses me out even more. Not like wedding planning and waiting for an acceptance letter isn’t stressful enough.

    My grandmother is convinced I am entirely too young to get married, which, I am 22 but I’m done with college, FH and I live together, pay our own bills etc… and that my tattoos will look horrible in my dress (only 1 will be visible by the way). She’s also trying to send out invitations to people I haven’t seen in 20 years and people that I don’t know at all. She’s also trying to get me to use some of the people she knows to make my cake and handle my flowers.

    My Future Sister-In-Law is pregnant and trying to make everything about her. She’s also making a point to bring up that “her Mother-In-Law never offered to help with her wedding as much as she’s offered to help with mine. It’s obvious I’m the favorite.” I wasn’t aware that we were competing? But allright.

    My bridesmaid is being immature and whiny. She’s been complaining about how I didn’t pick her to be my Maid/Matron of Honor even though I’ve known her the longest despite the fact that she lives 2 hours away with her boyfriend, his mother, sister and child and they can’t afford internet or a cell phone, much less a telephone and is completely unreachable.

    My cousin is the drama queen so far? My cousin acted nice when I got engaged. I said my wedding will be one year after!. Then after 2 months I got engaged , she got pregnant and she got married before and then I helped her, then she said I didn’t help her enough after I run errands for her, online searching for hours and put 100 dollars in his gift box for her honeymoon, I also was her hostess at the wedding. She acted so mean then I tried to forget about it. Then she acted nice again and i asked her to be my bridesmaid and she said she want to go with me dress shopping. She act like she was pressure for me to go, I never asked her to go with me. Then when I called her she acted like she didn’t have time all the time I decided to just dont bother her anymore then she call me again and said I am going to do this for you and thanked her. Then she started to acted that she spent a lot of money and talked about that all the time, that she is bussy and It is a lot of money, in the end I told her that I will pay that if she wants me. Then she said one month before my wedding she didnt want to be my bridesmaid anymore. Now my sister in law is getting upset because I edited some engagement pictures she took. Hopefully this won’t turn in another drama… I just want to get married with my men!

    I wanted a simple/inexpensive ceremony with a big party afterwards, but my mother planted seeds of doubt that I’d regret not having a poofy-gown-and-hotel-ballroom princess wedding some day. I take ownership of choosing that, but I think that’s where the drama started, because a lot of my choices thereafter were incompatible with what my in-laws wanted AND we still tried to compromise. But my Mother-In-Law reeeeaaaaally brought the crazy. Once she did that, everyone else got sucked into it like a whirlpool – my parents, everyone’s siblings, aunts and cousins, etc. I think that by the end of it, the only people who had given me no issues whatsoever (or participated in the crazy) were my Maid/Matron of Honor and future bridesmaids, lol. Eloping was the best decision I’ve ever made!
