Sit down soon with your FH & write out how you think the day should go. From the time you start getting hair and make up done, all the way until clean up time at your venue. Then, I would just continue to prefect it as you finalize arrival times with your venue coordinator/ pin point person. I would also ask your bridesmaids for help the day of in terms of keeping track of time. I know people on here say bridesmaids should just show up- nope. On the day of, they really need to rally around you & make sure you & your needs are taken care of (within reason, of course.)
As for the family issues, sounds like you guys need an open & honest conversation with each other. You're about to be bound to your FH and that includes his family. If you feel they are overbearing, you need to tell him & why. Does he have any idea about how his family's commentary is coming across to you?
Hey there Priscilla.
Firstly, welcome to the WeddingWire community.
I’m sorry to hear of these issues you’re having with your FMIL, FBIL’s girlfriend and bridesmaids. Planning a wedding can be stressful at times and dealing with situations like this on top of everything else is not fun. Sending you a big e-hug
You mentioned you’re afraid you will not find day-of coordinator in time for your wedding. Have you checked out the WeddingWire local vendor directory yet? It’s possible to filter by price, which may help you find one in your budget before the wedding day. Check it out here - Wedding Planners.
You can search by your wedding location, and also day-of coordination as opposed to full planning services.
I really hope this helps you in your search.
Found an affordable day of coordinator yay!thank you all for your advice!
