So we’ve only been engaged a few weeks, but we’re having a very short engagement (5 months.) Since we’ve been engaged I haven’t gotten to bed before midnight and it’s usually much later. There is so much to do and not much time to do it!
We gotta book our engagement photos, finalize our guest list, figure our our invitations, find a ceremony musician, pick our songs, find the girls dresses, find the guys suits, find a printer, do our gift registry, get our wedding bands, find our cake, rent linens, get our clothing altered, find shoes, plan out the ceremony time frames… etc. etc. You ladies know all the stuff.
I hear brides who were engaged for a year complain about how they couldn’t wait til it was over so they could finally accept weekend invitations from friends to do something other than wedding plan. I hear brides that were engaged for a year talk about how busy they were. How they didn’t have time.
My problem is that we’re trying to do it in less than half the time of most people and my fiance is complaining that we’re spending too much time wedding planning and that it’s all we talk about and that there’s never time for anything else.
Meanwhile I’m getting pissed because we’re way behind schedule and I think we do too many things and accept too many invites that aren’t wedding related. I don’t want to fight with my man but he doesn’t GET IT, he doesn’t understand what all needs to be done. He wants to be included in the planning, but he doesn’t want to plan as much that needs to be done.
I’m so over it. I want some days off. I’ve been working day and night, researching venues, vendors, costs, talking to family, talking to bridesmaids, hell, I even have to answer HIS friends questions, because he hasn’t even made most of his phone calls.
Just venting anonymously. Feels good.
