- Wedding: May 2011
Just need to vent. I am 39 and this is my first wedding. My wedding date is May 28th. Things are going well. Everyone is paid off. Only 0we $83 on the honeymoon, dress is paid off, girls have their dresses and shoes, I’ve even dressed the groomsmen. I think the only thing my Fiance has done was go get fitted for his tux. While he has been giving me money to pay for things for the wedding, I’m so tired of running around and paying this place and that place. Now I’m running around tying up loose ends. I’m getting fitted for my dress, about to do a dry run for my makeup, etc. Not to mention I’ve done my invitations, am doing my menus and reception “program”. My mom had one of her friends to “help” me with the invitations, but I don’t think she knew what she was doing. After about 3 or 4 weeks, she said that she had a friend who does invitations professionally. Just out of curiosity, I wanted to see how much her friend would charge to do my invitations and wedding programs. Well, the total came to a whopping $1100! Okay, did she not know I was on a budget??!!!
So, I ended up doing my invitations myself. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed doing my invites, but I have learned that it’s better to do things yourself instead of waiting for someone else to do it for you. Plus, it might get done a little faster! Sometimes I wish I was like my Fiance, and just go along and know it’s being handled. But then, I do want things a certain way.
Any other brides getting tired of running around???
