I am not a good delegator and I have had virtually no help. To be fair to my BMs, they have very busy lives and I am well aware my wedding does not represent the center of the universe. In a way, I guess it’s good I went into wedding planning in a state of ignorant bliss because if I had known was a PITA it all is, I would have married in Vegas!

I am with you!  I am on here and on wedding websites all day…then when it comes to things like calling the florist, I am like "honey can you do that?"

Some parts I liked, some parts I could have done without. Even though I LOVED looking at all the websites, at some points it was overwhelming – I felt like I had to research EVERY LITTLE THING on every web site before I could make any decisions, and that took so much time and effort! I didn’t want to decide on so many things, I just wanted it to be done.

I also hated feeling like, no matter what I did, nothing at my wedding was one-of-a-kind or new. So there were a lot of depressing parts about it.

Sometiimes. My problem is I’m so laid back and I "think" I don’t care about the little details but now as the wedding gets closer, I’m starting to stress about them! And I realize how much I do care. Then I feel overwhelmed. And then I wish we would have eloped!

As of tonight, I’m SO over it. We’ve had SO much drama this last week that I’m ready to say screw it all, we’re just getting married in Mexico.

I’m back and forth. Like tonight I have been obsessively searching online for beverage dispensers for lemonade and such and I enjoy the AHAH moment. But….I really HATE planning other times…like, trying to come up with ideas for arranging parking (I live in a real rural area with a wedding in a state park 5 miles from the nearest town). I think its just an ebb and flow for me. I like to do an entire day of research and planning and then need a two week break from it after that (besides WB).

Sorry for such poor poor writing, but I am soooo sleepy.

I definitely like looking at wedding websites a hell of a lot better than actually planning the wedding! I don’t mind some things, like the fun projects but logistical stuff like where people will stay and transportation and catering, etc….FORGET IT!

I agree, it is way more fun to look at websites and such than the actually planning of it.  All I know is that I’m ready to be done with it!!!!!  I’ve pretty much let things go and am letting my mom plan now, she is having way more fun than I am at this point and time!!!

I’m with you on that too! Everyone was shocked when I told them that I am not enjoying this as much as other people I know have. It just drains me sometimes, but part of that is the little planner in me who wants everything to be just right…I can easily obsess over something. I’m ready for it to be October and for it to be over, so I can just enjoy some quality time with my wonderful husband.

I agree! Wedding planning is not as fun as I had anticipated. It feels a lot like work with all the organization, contacting, and time management involved. Some days, I like it–like when I am looking at pretty bouquets, cakes, etc. Other days I feel overwhelmed like I just want to get all the planning over with!

I love wedding planning in my head, but not when it comes down to the nitty-gritty, if that makes sense.  I love thinking about the day, marrying my fiance, enjoying friends and family, ways that I can make things personal and meaningful — but dealing with competing family expectations, vendors, ridiculous prices for anything wedding-related, budgets, etc., is soooo not fun!  So I guess in a perfect world, I love wedding planning!
