Everything. We argued about everything during the wedding planning process. It was such a stressful time. Before we got engaged we barely argued and now that we are married we rarely argue. During that planning process things between us were pretty annoying lol.

 

boy am I glad it’s over!

@BrideofGroomzilla:  No fights yet! But, I assume it’ll be when I start nagging him to get his checklist done! Also a planner versus a procrastinator here 🙂

@BrideofGroomzilla:  We argue the most about putting stuff off… I want it done now but he would rather wait… UGH!

I’m finding the whole planning thing pretty stressful. We are planning a destination wedding in Italy, and within the first two weeks of planning I was ready to elope. Between emailing venues, looking for ideas, etc; I just knew that wedding planning wasn’t going to be for me. We quickly hired a wedding planner, and since then things have been far less stressful. I think the key is just deciding once you have a perfect venue, to stop looking! I was so concerned their could be something bigger and better, I found myself ready to book one venue, then emailing others I found. Having someone that knows what I like help me narrow it down has been super helpful. 

We are paying for the wedding ourselves, so we still tend to argue or rather discuss budget issues quite frequently.

Nothing yet. We have 5 months to go so it could still happen. I’m trying to remember how blessed we are to a) be in love and b) have the means to have a wedding. Everything else isn’t important!

The guest list was the absolute only thing we ever disagreed on. We had a limit of 150 guests and his mom gave me a list that was 87 just from their family. I flipped out. I wanted to be fair and make everyone happy but he and I are both from divorced families so that was just 1 of the sides

Having too many choices! I like a lot of things and FI is ok with settling on the first thing we both like. That’s the only thing that continues to be a bit of a problem. We are having fun for the most part.

@BrideofGroomzilla:  We didn’t argue about anything wedding related, but there was a short time where I was stressed with the planning, and I think I sort of started picking fights over stupid stuff (none of it wedding related)- just because I was stressed.  I didn’t realize I was doing it at the time, and DH never said anything (bless him for being so understanding)-

@BrideofGroomzilla:  Absolutely everything big. I want a 400 guest, Catholic wedding followed by a dance reception. FI wants a 30 guest, outdoor secular wedding, no reception or cake and punch at most.

Me drinking and “partying”  🙁  He thinks I’m going to get trashed.

Also, he wants everything done yesterday and I’m more cautious. This is related to: he doesn’t “see” money, and I’m trying desperately not to go bankrupt over this.
