so, i'm recently engaged.
we're beginning to plan our wedding for October 11, 2013.
already running into problems.
1) Flower Girls
my fiance has a 3-year-old daughter (will be 4 by then) who automatically is one of my flower girls. i have 8 nieces (all under the age of 6) and i have two younger sisters (mom & step dad's daughters) who will be 4 and 5 then. my mom decided that my two younger sisters should be my flower girls and that we should "find something else" for my stepdaughter to do.
--the problem being, i love my baby sisters. but they're brats. i don't even want kids at the reception! i defintely don't want them in my wedding. and i already picked my second flower girl, my God Daughter who will be 5
2) Bridal Party.
my fiance has 3 sisters. i'm not really close with any of them. he's only really close with his youngest sister. we decided that she was going to be almost like a helper to me (and she's okay with that). however, his older two sisters decided they were bridesmaids in the wedding (not happening). his one cousin ASSUMED he was in the wedding because his son is our ring boy (he'll be 6 then). and then somebody who used to be my best friend (who i haven't even spoken to for 3 years--we had a HUGE fight) came out of NO WHERE once my engagement hit Facebook (pretty sure one of my facebook/twitter/instagram stalkers ran & told that) asking about where she should go for her MOH fitting! lol. really?
3) future MIL.
i love her as a person. but she can be soooo controlling! i remember when my stepdaughter was born (my fiance & my stepdaughter's mother broke up right before she found out she was pregnant. we met about 3 months before my stepdaughter was born) & she practically moved in his apartment at the time to "help" take care of my stepdaughter! but she didn't need to! about a year ago, i did get pregnant, but miscarried at 7 months. before the miscarriage happened, she was talking about coming to stay our house for the first 3 months to "help." my fiance quickly knew i was not okay with that and told her. she then started acting like a child--threw a FULLBLOWN tantrum, started crying and didn't understand why she couldn't come stay for a few months.
--she is getting upset about the fact that we're getting married in Georgia (where i was born & raised) because she doesn't think her friends will make it to the wedding (we live in Michigain) and because we hired my fiance's aunt (a wedding planner) to help with everything that needs to be done there. basically because my MIL can't control it. she's acting crazy. i thought the wedding was about me & my fiance, not entertaining a bunch of people we don't even know (his mother's friends)?
sorry it's kinda lengthy. i needed to put all that out there lol.
