i dont know…I feel the same way.  AFter trying to coordinate with the city to reserve parking spaces for our guests, Im ready to kill myself.   

Weddings shouldn’t be this hard…..I wish I was rich enough to afford a planner!

I think about eloping EVERY DAY.

Initially, I wanted to elope! I did all of my research for a Vegas wedding — and how much it would cost to get our immediate family and friends there. Then, I looked into just FH and I flying there for a Vegas wedding, but he wasn’t having it.

FH will even say, “I’m so stressed, are you sure you don’t want to go to the court house” and I’ll say “FH — how are you STRESSED? What are you doing?” and his reply is always “Watching you running around and doing all of this is wearing me out!!!!!

Bahahha. Good Luck! (It’ll get easier, it just takes lots of research) and hey — don’t forget, YOU CAN NEGOTIATE! Do price compare quotes and use those to your advantage!

Its wedding season so its not unsual for ppl not to get back to you.  I planned a chilled DW style wedding in a month but I was able to do this by getting married on a Thursday instead of the wkend.  In May, I went to my Bestie’s brother’s 200+ ppl wedding that was literally planned in a month.   It can be done:

Research.  Research.  Research.- My Bestie’s brothers wedding was a Sunday afternoon @ a golf course.   The food was catered from a restaurant they both liked.  All the booze was purchased by her parents.  My Besties’ friends did all of the centerpieces as well as other flower arrangements.  Since my Bestie was a DOC in a previous life, several of us were her helpers.  DJ was a family friend. 

You can do it!!!!!  I planned my July wedding in a month as well.  Ceremony @ a local park.  Wedding dinner @ a local restaurant.  All of my vendors are small businesses and female owned.  My photographer is up-coming.  IPod was my DJ.  

If your in the OC, PM me.  I’ve done alot of research that I can share.

yeah, its one of those things that you kind of have to find out for yourself… no one can tell you to avoid the planning and just elope.

i kind of wish we did that but there is definitely no turning back now!
