- Wedding: January 2014
We’ve ran into a few problems, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t frustrated. I don’t know how many times I’ve told him “why didn’t we just elope?”
Our ceremony venue (a chapel) caught on fire and won’t get repaired in time, and so we are just having ceremony/reception at our reception venue. Then, we found out that the best man can get time off so FI had to pick another groomsman, meanwhile 2 of my bridesmaids are having major drama (my sister and my BFF from high school). Then, I get a call from David’s Bridal saying my sister didn’t order my niece’s flower girl dress and its past the cut off. I thought everything was settled in that regard, but now its like starting from scratch. We are also having trouble finding a photographer within our budget. Pictures aren’t that important to my fiance (he just wants a couple basic ones) and I don’t want to pay an arm and a leg either. We found one that had prices we could agree on, but they aren’t returning my emails now.
I guess you could say I’m not planning my dream/ideal wedding anymore. It’s 3 months away and I guess I’m just trying to plan a wedding with what I have to deal with – between the change in venue and our budget. If I could go back, I would probably choose to do a ceremony with just us and then celebrate with just our immediate family. I hadn’t really wanted such a big wedding, but my fiance has a pretty large-sized family so I guess that couldn’t have been avoided. I guess I’m just tired of wedding planning and of all the stress.
