How do I balance everything??
How do I balance everything??
Wedding planning took a back burner until I had breaks, I also am NOT doing much DIY and if it is I give it to my FI’s sisters who have graciously offered.. And now I am rushing.
I’m writing my dissertation, teaching at the university, teaching group fitness, on the academic job market, and planning a wedding. I have no time for anything (and when I do have time, I get sucked into weddingbee).
I totally did that! We were going to make all of the centerpeices but then I decided it was just too much! That is SO nice of your FI’s sis! Holy:) When does your school end??
It’s incredibly difficult! I’m in grad school and I’m finding it hard to balance everything. I saw this on facebook yesterday and it gave me a laugh! Hope it does you too!
HAHAHA that is amazing!!! Thank-you 🙂 I am in an international marketing class and I needed that! Good luck to both you ladies!
I think wedding planning just takes a back burner when theres free time. But I was working full time, taking two night classes toward my engineering masters, and house hunting while planning. During lunch break, I’d do some wedding reserach. Weekends we’re look at houses and venues. I guess it helped that we had a 14 month engagement so after the venue was booked, the hardest thing to settle on for me, i didnt feel rushed to do any of the rest of it. And I finally finished school 2 months before the wedding so I could do all the last minute stuff pretty easily.
Yes! I agree with above pinkshoes, we had a long long engagement and I also graduated last semester with my masters and now I am just taking 1 class, while *trying* to find a job. So lots more time to waste on weddingbee.
I did: I got married 1 month ago, literally smack in the middle of my 2nd week of school. I would never suggest getting married durring law school. My whole 1st semester suffered because of it (I had a lot of DIY projects). I tried to put wedding planning aside when exams hit but honestly there was still so many unavoidables.
I was printing & sending invites during my midterms, my bridal shower was the night before one of my biggest finals my phone was ringing off the hook with vendors durring all my classes in the 2 weeks leading up to my wedding.
You’re smarter than I am, getting married in August… pfftt January!!
I’m on the same boat: working full time, completing my graduate in engineering, planning a wedding, and trying to live my life lol.
The good thing for me is that mine is a semi destination wedding and I have a friend who happens to be a planner and she is helping me (for a fee of course) but being in another country I have to constantly reply to emails and do some research to let her know what I like and what I want.
School and work come in first and I just reply whenever I can and she understands. Divide the task with close family (mom, siblings), Maid/Matron of Honor, and Bridesmaid or Best Man.
I am! I just started my master’s degree this January and we’re getting married in October…on the other side of the country. When I think about wedding planning and school I am pretty much like that girl in the last picture. There are actually two other girls in my program getting married (both of their weddings are in August, like yours!).
I must admit, most wedding projects are a nice break from studying. Although, sometimes it’s studying is a nice break from wedding projects…
You’re not alone! I”m working fulltime and taking online classes fulltime (luckily the classes mix well with what I do) it has helped to have a LOOONG engagement, but it’s still rough not having much money between my Fiance and I since he has 0 money and is getting his masters and not working.
I do but its somehow managable… i think the wedding fairies visit while im asleep and elephant ear some of the bride magazines for my convinience lol
This is exactly why I love WeddingBees!! Love the support and the relatbility!!!! Thank-you all!!!
@pinkshoes: thats really good advice- I will have a few months after I am dont Spring semester until the wedding!
@TopazWedding: haha i feel like its time well spent on this site!! muahaha!

@Floating Elephy: wow masters! congrats!!! its nice you have the other girls to relate to in your classes!
@danicalifornia: o wow- good luck with everything! I am sure it will all end up amazing… I am lucky- my finace works in the oil patch so he is helping alot witht the wedding so I dont need to spend time with DIY!
