- Wedding: September 2012
Hi again! I was forced to go on a short hiatus after getting engaged as my computer would not let me come onto weddingbee . I finally caved and dl’ed Safari and now I can read and write and post and all that fun stuff again! YAAAAAAAAAAAY!
Now…. Fiance and I have been engaged for 3 weeks and one day (not that I’m counting!). We just spent a week down in Florida on vacation (which ROCKED), and now it’s time to start planning our wedding!
Problem: I have no idea where to start.
I bought a wedding planner book, I have magazines. I have everyone and their mother telling me what I should be doing, who I should be talking to, etc. And I am overwhelmed already. And we haven’t even picked a date!! AGGGHHHH.
I had some very…. small ideas of what I wanted. Outdoor ceremony with indoor reception at the same site. Wedding colors to be navy, peach/cream, and light pink. Three bridesmaids, three groomsmen. In NJ. In September or October of 2012. Want my dress to be strapless, maybe a Maggie Sottero (drooool).
And that. is. it.
Now, though, I’m not so big on the outdoor ceremony. And I don’t know if I wanna have it in NJ or maybe a winery up in NY. And I don’t know if I love my colors. And I haven’t talked to Fiance about any of this (I will, though, don’t worry… This is just preliminary planning). And I know NOTHINGGGGGGGGGGG about flowers or dessert tables or chair linens (whaaaaaat?) or DJs and I am freaking OUT.
I started making lists of potential venue spots. But I can’t bring myself to research them, I’m just not… motivated.
I made a wedding website and started an inspiration board but got QUICKLY overwhelmed with it and had to stop.
Is this normal? Were any of you bees out there just in full out panic mode when you started planning? I mean honestly, I haven’t PLANNED anything, I’m just in brainstorming mode and it’s like… TOO MUCH.
At the same time, though, I REALLY want to find a venue and book a date, to solidify that YES we are ACTUALLY getting married (which is all that matters).
I cannot wait to marry my Fiance. I love him to death and he’s so good to me. I just hope I don’t drive him crazy with all this planning stuff.
Ugh scheduling is gonna be a nightmaaaaaare, but that’s a post for another time.
So that’s my rant. Any advice from anyone? I kind of just wanna cool out and enjoy being engaged for a little while, ya know? But in the back of my mind (and at work… and from my parents…. and from my FB friends….), all that’s being mentioned is planning and organizing and booking and….. I need a xanax haha.
Any advice would be great, Bees!!
