Nevada-Las Vegas

VENT(ish)!!!

Ok,,,where to start! So yesterday I am taliking to my Brother & FSIL and they mention that they may have a couple meet up with them on the Friday night before the wedding, which ok, is fine with me...but then it goes into the possibilty of them stopping in at the reception...hummm....ok....so I have been pretty easy going about this and there are a few of my brothers friends attending, but.....Now I am getting irritated! So I think I was not to snipy and just said "Let me see what the numbers look like first, I don't want to suite to be to crowded" Am I right in my irritation?? I mean....FI & I are trying to decide on what to due budget wise about food, are we going to have an Elvis Impersonator, favors, etc...I really want things to be nice, and not just so, so because the numbers get to big...ugghhhh! and then! I am trying to stay out of the bachlorette party planning and I am having to play middle man because my FSIL's don't really know my close friends, and I think my close friend may be upset that FSIL stepped in and started planning....

Ok...just need to vent....TIA for those who read this!! =)

    Hugs! Don't worry about it! It will all turn out wonderful and they all need to just chill. If you need to put your foot down later you can but right now people are just talking out loud. I hate when people try to invite people it isn't an open house its a wedding reception for goodness sake. You can tell them no but at the reception if they do show up just let it go.

    I agree with Pamila. My little brother started doing the same thing. He said he was just going to have his friends meet up with him after the reception. I thought that was pretty rude of him to do that to his friends. In the end we compromised and he offered to give me the amount of $ I would spend by adding his friends to our guest list.

    Don't stress out about it. Everything will turn out fine.

    The friends and the FSIL's will have to plan the party together. In the end the party is for you, not them. Maybe they can exchange emails so you don't have to be the middle person.

    Hope this helps! Like I said, DON'T STRESS! :)

    Yes, there is no point in turning in to a bridezilla. No one likes a bridezilla. LOL!

    Just keep calm :)

    LOL! Exactly Denisse! I am such a people pleaser that I have a hard time saying anything, but I still am amazed at how people think "It's just Vegas"....

    I know what you mean. I'm a little bit like that also. I always worry about everyone else and I always have to please everyone else. So far in my wedding planning I've taken on sort of a "go with the flow" attitude. I'm not going to stress over anything. If you want to come to Vegas that's fine, if you don't then stay in LA! LOL

    I've had enough extra stress in the past month to be stressing over my wedding. I promised myself that I wouldn't let it happen. So far, so good! =)

    Good Luck

    I like Bridezillas ;)

    I have had the same thing with people saying they want to bring their families, friends, coworkers, baby's mama lol etc... I just tell them all it's Vegas and anyone can come to Vegas doesn't mean they can come to my wedding :)

    People stink sometimes haha
