Whooooooaaaa. Breathe sweetpea πŸ™‚ I think he was just wanting to do the outing to your dad’s together since the wedding is so close. I don’t think he was comparing your commute to his, it sounds like he just wanted to spend time with you. I understand your frustration though, I despise long drives. I am sorry to hear about your programs. We just got ours back and although I’ve stared at them for like an hour, I am sure a typo will jump out at me. Honestly, the only people that will know the name is misspelled are you, Fiance, and his grandma heehee.

Have a nice bubble bath with a good book and relax!!

I hope things are going better and even though yes errors are going to stick out to you, you have to think of what your time is worth. Do you redo everything or just overlook it and hope others will too.

I’ve been working on programs this week and I had to read them a million times and have two other people read them before I was satisfied and started printing.

When I saw your post, I thought “I bet she is a Sept long weekend bride!!”. I think we are all getting like that…the wedding is still far enough away that there are things to get done, but not close enough that we can just let it go. 

I had my freak-out moment yesterday and took the day off from planning. Today I’m back at it and ready to check things off my list!

My Future Mother-In-Law is driving me insane so I am terrified I am going to snap on her at any moment. I keep telling myself to take a few deep breaths before I comment on anything that will upset me. I think we all need that little moment to just get it all out, then we feel better and less strung out afterwards.

Hi date twin!

I feel you – I’ve been so short tempered, but it’s because my Fiance picked up a side job that is taking every ounce of his free time (outside of his 40 hour work week). For two months I nagged to find his ring and go through music, and (thankfully) it got finished last night (or so I hope).

I’ve been snappy a lot recently, and flipped out on him in the car on our way to look at rings and almost turned around. I’m so overwhelmed, as I’ve just realized he doesn’t get it and never will. He told me to “drop the candy bar” and forget the rest of the crap. Really? It’s your family that had to have this wedding, my dreams were going to the courthouse and being done. Now that we are so close, it damn well better be my way.

Feels better to share it πŸ™‚

So your not alone in this! And my programs have a mispelling too – they say “Where the couple current lives” instead of “Where the couple currently lives”. My friend showed me the other day, and I almost lost it.

I hear you ladies. I flipped out at my Fiance this morning before he even went to work. He was trying to be helpeful and suggested that we take family photos during the end of cocktail hour instead of right after the ceremony/prior to cocktail hour. I about exploded because OBVIOUSLY that’s a terrible idea! After the ceremony everyone is already in one place! Why try to gather them up from the cocktail hour to go take pictures!? Anyway. He became offended that I snapped at him for trying to help me plan things. There was yelling. And I hadn’t even been awake 5 minutes.


I am just at the boiling point overall. Fiance has been working like 70 hours per week, I also work, plus I’m working on my Master’s thesis, and this wedding is happening so soon. Aahhh!

The wedding isn’t getting me frazzled it is the fact that we are having houseguests starting on Thursday through next Wednesday. The couple recently got married so you would think they wouldn’t have asked to stay with us the week before our wedding, but they did. I am just looking forward to our wedding and then spending the next 9 days in Mexico, where the only thing I will have to decide on is what to eat and drink.


@ Snoie- It took me a second to realize where the mistake ways. I went to a wedding this weekend where there was a mistake in the programs too. They put Bridesmaids- and then only listed one bridesmaid. Mistakes happen and most people probably won’t notice.

you are totally not alone.  I feel like all I am doing is wedding errand after wedding errand, after projects, etc..I printed all my programs and then realized I had put two of my friends maiden names in there and had to reprint.

My last freakout at my Fiance was because I couldn’t get a mail merge to work for our labels.  I yelled and threw down the labels on the couch next to him and said “Its not worth it, it will never work!”.  I thought my veins were going to explode haha.  He kept on working on it after I quit and I kept yelling at him to stop doing it cuz it was just a waste of time.  Eventually he got it done, I apologized, and he said “I know you’re not really yelling at me, you’re just yelling at the situation.”

Thank goodness he understands!  It will all be over soon and we will all be married πŸ™‚
