    Wow I feel so much better knowing that I'm not alone with my crazy family! In the end the most important people who attend is you and your furture husband! I agree with the last comment...have a glass of wine and look forward to the sunshine!

        Malisa you are funny girl! Glad you can keep a positive attitude tho- but pvbeachbride10 you gotta do what's gonna make you and your man happy. You're not getting married for your family after all. You just plan your dream wedding, be happy to spend time with those who support you, and let the others do their thing. When you're in Mexico call on your MOH or BM to be the "go to girl" and when family has a complaint or wants to be critical pass the buck- just tell them you're there to celebrate one of the happiest times of your life and don't want to hear it right now. She can give you the details once you're back home- or not! Chin up cuz y'all certainly are not alone on this one!

          I don't know if I should say "I'm glad I'm not alone" or "Sorry that there's so many of us". :)

          My mom actually told me she was worried about a wedding in Mexico bc it's lawless, etc. Long story short, it would be easy for my dad to put a hit on my mom there. Awesome. My FI has such a normal family....

            I hate complainers. I know it's hard but try not to care and maybe people's attitudes will change.

              OMG! I am so glad I stumbled on this thread and am going to vent for a minute.

              My mother is driving me nutso! She is refusing to help me put together a guest list from my side of the family. Initially I was planning on getting married in Texas (where I grew up) and her list was 250 people. Now we are going to Mexico and she has lost her mind. She claims that she has talked to everyone that she would want to come and they all think I am crazy for not getting married in Texas. Thing is... I live in Phoenix! So Texas or Mexico are both destination for me.

              My FI's family lives in Kansas so they have to travel anyways. His brother got married in Cancun a couple years ago and the whole family ended up going and having a blast. Now they are all way excited and keep calling and saying they are coming to ours since we are going somewhere fun. So much for keeping it small.

              It is so hard when 1 side is being so cool and totally makes me excited to plan compared to the other side that is just being a complete downer and ends up draining me. I know mom will come around, but seriously why does she have to be so difficult? She keeps saying she knows it is my wedding and wants me to be happy, but she is absolutely miserable (and making me miserable) because she thinks I am trying to make people not come. Ahhhhhhhh!!!!!

              OK. Enough crying. I’m off to finish my guest list and try to not get caught at work
