- Wedding: August 2011
If one more thing just happens to “pop up” I’m afraid my poor little heart is going to explode right out of my chest! Added up the total cost for the bridesmaid dresses today (because of recent circumstances I am paying for 2 of the 5….1 of which will probably eventually pay me back, the other I knew from the beginning I was going to be picking up the tab for, but I wanted her in the wedding!) THAT right there about gave me a heart attack! The cost of dresses is ridiculous! There goes like a 4th of our “budget”! I’ve even tried looking other places like Macy’s or Dillard’s…no such luck!
Then FI springs on me that his mom has a list of guests for their side of the family….165 people! WHAT?!?!? I was only counting on around 200 TOTAL! I told him if he’s really close with that many people we’ll find a way but otherwise the second cousins and people from work need to be limited. He understands but she about had a cow! How in the world does someone even know 165 people?!? Seating, food, programs and what not for that many people plus our side of the family (not nearly as many, but still) ….wow. I don’t even want to begin to think about it!
4 weeks of this quarter of school left then taking the summer off for wedding planning. Already decided I am NOT going to add more stress by taking summer courses!
AND the real kicker….someone at work quit and has decided she’s just not going to show up her last 2 weeks so there’s around 40 more hours to be spread about between those of us still left to make up this week. Hello, 3-11 shift! 🙁 And FI wonders why I can’t just get up early and do everything before work. Oh I dunno….because by the time I get home, eat dinner, and do my homework its creeping up on 2-3am!!
All I can say is I hope the next 3 1/2 months get a LOT better! Anyone else finally feeling the stress?
