- Wedding: April 2014
I’m sure each and every one of you not only see a lot of this type of thing on wedding blogs all day and every day, and many of you – if not most – feel it all the time too.
I am freaking out.
Mister Ber popped the question late Oct of 2012. We decided on having a long engagement (18 months) as to not stress the both of us (mainy me) out.
It is now less than 90 days before our wedding. Fluff, that went fast! I feel like nothing is done. Seriously. I felt fine before 2014 hit, I felt ahead of the game, even! Now I feel like I am drowning.
One thing that I think is seriously impacting my perspective right now: my younger sister, my maid-of-honor got engaged less than six months ago and has decided to get married three months after me, at the end of July, in Las Vegas, during our horrible monsoon season. Better yet, her BFF just got engaged last month, and is getting married two weeks after me. ARGH. She is not reliable. She is flighty, flaky, and selfish already, (I have some SERIOUS sister issues) how can I rely on her to help me when I’m freaking out like this? I already had to give bachelorette party planning to another bridesmaid (sister dropping the ball), and now sister is telling me she can’t afford to even go ($300 for a weekend of wine tasting, spa relaxing, and two nights at a hotel in wine country, CA. Too much?).
I feel lost. I am hoping this is just that-time-of-the-month hormone stress.
The rest of my freak-out list is as follows:
– My wedding invitations have not been sent to our guests yet, and the RSVP says they’re due by Feb 1st.
– I don’t have a florist yet.
– We don’t have any idea what we’re doing as far as the music list goes.
– I can’t find a pair of earrings that match my grandmother’s pearl necklace.
– I don’t have a veil yet.
– I have no decor yet.
– I don’t have the cake-topper yet
– I don’t even have my DIY wedding favors started.
At least I can enjoy the good news –
+ I have my dress!
+ All of the bridesmaid’s dresses have been ordered.
+ I have my perfect wedding shoes.
+ We are right on target budget-wise.
+ The wedding website I’m designing is coming together beautifully.
+ My wedding photographer is amazing, the one vendor I know I can rely on 100%!
+ My venue is beautiful and mostly-inclusive.
+++ I am marrying the man of my dreams in less than 90 days!
Thank you, everyone who took the time to read this!
Anyone else in Las Vegas, and getting married here this year?
