Save the dates have been sent, our venue, band and my dress are all done-ish… Now begins the long to-do list of small, yet important things that need to be tackled. Not that I am doing this all alone, but the need to have this day look and feel perfect seems to be something that only I can understand. Everyone has theirsown thoughts on what their perfect day should be like and mine are just as unique as everyone else’s. The problem? My future Mr. has just as many if not more opinions as I do. It’s great and so aggravating at the same time. What is not great? He is just as easy breezy as ever and I am two steps away from may hair falling out. Will the stress ever settle?

@Shmoyela: I would create a master list of the todos, preferably in order of when they need to be done. Then start assigning them to other people, like your FI.

I KNOW HOW YOU FEEL!! Exceptmy fiance doesnt want to handle anything wedding related and prefers to let me take care of everything which is very hard! I have a few lil projects im trying to do myself and he doesnt seem to see how important it is to me. For exampe im making my own guestbook and he thinks we should just go buy one and save me trouble. But i dont want to. Weve had alot of stress over this wedding and it eally makes me think of whats REALLY IMPORTANT. This is a day made especially for the future bride and groom. Yet we are the ones scrambling around and spending money out of our ying yangs to make it perfect for other people! Favors,dishes,music,drinks! If i could do this over again i would elope and go somewhere romantic where we can just focus on us and our commitment to eachother without the stress of planning a wedding.

@lovemylife88: I’m not ready to elope yet, lol, but I do get frustrated with FI not getting why some things are important to me…..and not following through with things he’s been asked or volunteered to do — he just seems to have no concept of how little time there really is between now and June 9!!!
