I am not sure where to start this. I think i will start with my sister. out of her plainly being my sister i asked her to be my maid of honor. now i have to deal with her trying to control the show as to what i do for my ceremony and reception, yet only comes around to be bossy when it suits her. the other two gals in the party are my besties from High School and somehow has remained in contact and are all aunts to our children. now we have made great headway in planning and finally are getting somewhere, to have my sister train wreck her way though trying to get me to dump one of my gals from the party.
i'm not sure what to do with her ...even though she has offered to do some gracious things for my wedding and front the bridal shoes for the party and a spa day the morning of i don't find myself caring or that thrilled because she is making it that unbearable but i cant bring myself to tell her to go away either. any suggestions for coping with her?
secondly our parents are divorced. they cant get along and i never cared for my dads side like ever. the only man in my life other then my fiance that i have ever loved to pieces is unfortunately no longer with us as my grandfather passed away when i was about 9 years old. i made it clear to everyone except my father and his side of the family that i don't want him to walk me down the aisle. I don't want a father daughter dance and i kind of really dont want him there at all. I do really like my one stepbrother and his family but i am afraid that in inviting them they will pass the wedding details along should i choose not to send the invitation to my father. i have so many people that i can't have next to another its not even funny and its just getting more and more unbearable as the impeding months trickle down. i'm almost at the point where i need everything into the vendors as i have three months left. im kind of at a loss and fear my wedding day. any advice from others with difficult families and trying to avoid certain traditions or people would be very welcomed.
