Bees, I have had a day. I had my first dentist appointment in, like, three years, and after sitting through an epic appointment (over two hours) I’m told by the office that I need about $2K worth of work done that my insurance won’t cover. Meanwhile, my text messages are piling up with friends of family who still haven’t received their StDs, out-of-town bridesmaids who won’t be flying in until the last minute, and my lovely mother who can’t seem to understand why I need to go to a salon and put on a dress that isn’t my dress in order to try on accessories– and oh yes, has BM 3 even ordered her dress yet?
I am cranky. I feel like I’ve been punched in the face repeatedly. And, ya know, I’d kind of like to punch someone in the face in return. Right now, all I want to know is:
- Did you give me the correct f-ing address?
- Is your flight going to get you here in time for the rehearsal, at least?
- Can you accept the fact that the dress is the same color, neckline, and shape as mine and just let me try on sparkly things without grief?!?
- Can you please just go order your f-ing BM dress. I don’t even have the patience to make this a question.
I’m so over it. I want to go back to nice, normal me…you know, the girl who wasn’t driven to tears by the thought of the wedding craft supplies piling up in the back room. FI keeps telling me it’ll all work out somehow, and really, that’s just putting him on my imaginary punching list.
Anyone else want to chuck it all, take your honey and the budget, and go on a long overseas vacation?

@Sugar_and_Spice: I’m right there with ya. I jsut sent my invites out, this should be a happy day but one thing after another is just going wrong. On top of that the company i’ve worked for, for 8 years is really struggling and it looks like they are going to shut the doors any minute, leaving me out of a job, 10 weeks away from my wedding with still so much money left to pay. We need to book our honeymoon now if we’re going but i just don’t know if it’s worth the risk, it’s going to cost us about $8000 and i may be out of a job. I just don’t know what to do. We’ve been together 6 years and never had a holiday, i’ve never taken time off from my job apart from when it’s closed at xmas, I deserve this friggin honeymoon!
And to top it all off it’s FI bday so we’re going out for dinner with the in laws, so not in the mood!
nikbee – crying in the bath with a bottle of wine sounds perfect!

Totally hear ya and we had already done the legal part we were throwing this party for them. Ours was paid as we went along but I’m a temp and wasn’t sure I’d be able to pay for everying I wanted til 3 weeks before. Then I came home to the wedding location and found out we still had to do 9 billion things (yes exageration) that I had been told had been done. I wanted to cry every single day… And the day it all finally went down I broke down crying and we went to a hotel were I got sick all over the place and then finally felt better.
Your FI is right though everything does work out. Just take it one day at a time. And if that’s too much hour by hour. Do what you can in that time and don’t look back. And the end all the stress will be realeased and it’ll be over!!

- Wedding: March 2014 - A castle!
@Sugar_and_Spice: We were just talking today about scrapping the wedding and taking a long vacation. Herding 20 people in a wedding party is like herding cats and I don’t know if I can handle it. I’m not even in full planning mode, but I can understand where you are coming from.
