- Wedding: June 2010
Hi, remember me? Yeah, I’m that girl that used to post a lot and has slowly dropped off the face of the earth. A lot of it has been due to school / finals, but I have a confession: I don’t like to get on Weddingbee if I am stressed out about the wedding.
I don’t want to go into it, but over the past three weeks, I have been dealing with a lot of stress related to wedding planning. It’s the kind of stuff everyone tells you to expect – dealing with everyone’s desires and expectations and egos – but it still really, really sucks. The parental issues (both mine and his) have been particularly awful. The worst part is how all of this is affecting my relationship. I told one of my bridesmaids yesterday, “I’m not getting married to have a stupid violinist (one of our issues). I’m getting married because I want to be with FI.” Yet these wedding decisions have been making FI and I fight, as issues related to money and family will do.
Having said all of that, over the past few days, the last thing I’ve wanted to do is get on Weddingbee, because all the wedding related talk will just be a reminder. Weddingbee has always been an escape for me, but I’ve found that when what I want to escape is the wedding, the hive is not the best place for me to go. I tried at first to post about what I was going through, but for me it wasn’t helpful, it just made me dwell on my problems. Not to mention I don’t think its totally wise to talk about personal issues on such a public forum.
Anyway. This is my explanation for being somewhat MIA, and for why as the wedding gets nearer, I may have to once again take a step back. Has anyone else struggled with this?
