So I'm the first in my friend group to plan a wedding. I'm also the first of my siblings getting married (and probably the only one). I've heard wedding planning was hard I just didnt expect it to be THIS hard... Just wondering if anyone else can relate. All my close family has been super dramatic: divorced parents treating this like a competition, mother stopped speaking to me for 2 weeks and just overall crazy requests and MAJOR guilt tripping.
Honestly, I'm also starting to see where the 'bridezilla' comes from. Vendors are so overwhelmed you have no choice but to be mega organized and really know your stuff. And people are just trying to get their way all the time. I really was aiming to be very open and accommodating but it feels like its backfiring.
Lastly, I just realised with all this how selfish people can be. I thought the maid of honor is the bride's right arm but that really isnt the case for me. My overall bridal party seems way more vocal with their concerns and criticisms vs their excitement and support.
Was anybody else just majorly let down by people's behavior such as close family and friends? Did covid make it all harder?
