Im going insane?
I deperatley need to STOP pre-planning.. it is driving me freaking nuts.. Im stressing out and Im not even bloody engaged yet.. I keep telling myself that Im only pre-planning so that when SO asks me I can be prepared because I know how much there is to plan but its taking over my life and I hate it…
I am (already) having issues about who to and who not to invite (doesnt everyone?) there are some friends I would rather invite over “close family” but then you cant do that because people will get upset!!
I keep thinking I would like to do it with only immediate family BUT we have 2 couples (friends) who are like family and we would want them ther but then people like grandparents and aunties and uncles would get upset..
Do we want a wedding here in Australia or do we want a Destination wedding (Bali, Fiji, Thailand)..? (we want to honeymoon in the USA for 4 weeks so we have to take that into account also…)
I think one of the reasons SO has not popped the question yet is because of all the stress that comes with it.. he is very easy going and hates to be told what to do and he doesnt like the idea of “having to invite people because of…” well because of any other reason than wanting to. It also doesnt help that on my side of the family I have about 46 people we have to invite and he has 8… (this is not including friends of ours..)
I am trying not to think about it/pre-plan, talk about it or even think about it but it seems to be getting harder and harder..
any tips on letting go of it all and just thinking about other things?
sorry for the crazy rant!!
