I really was ready for planning to be done by that point!  I know it’s tough to wish that you could change things but at this point it won’t happen so better to make the best of it!

I have been feeling the same way. I barely got my way on stuff because I felt pressured to do this and that. And the same with the guest list. I’d rather have more of our friends there than FMIL’s co-worker’s husband. But it’s already done and I am starting to just get things done and deal with problems as they come. Hopefully my hair will stop falling out!

Dear littleliz123,

YOU are an inspiration, sweet one.  Full of what so many seem to be lacking, or forgetting about.  You have come to terms with what’s done, including your mother’s inattentiveness, and faced it all with so much courage and intelligence.  Bravo! You seem way, way beyond your years.  And you bring us all back to what getting married is supposed to be about after all.  I, too, am getting married on June 12th and am bogged down in all the details about now, but I will read your post again.. and again if I have to, to ground myself and to remember.  Thank you for putting it back into perspective.  Your man is one lucky guy; so’s your fMIL and your Mom and your daughter.. and so are you.  Wow.  Let’s have a great June 12th, shall we?! Hugs from a bee who has too little time between work and life and love to stay on here too much longer today to write jillions more posts, or to write some that don’t mean very much, but I sure am glad I stopped in and read yours!

Thanks for this great post! Way to have your head on right and see that the wedding doesn’t make the marriage!

FYI – I’m so done with planning too. And I have just over 100 days to go.

Well said! I wish you luck and I can say this now that I was just married May 22nd, dont sweat the small stuff and definitely remind yourself your getting married and not worry to much about the actual wedding. 🙂

This is such an amazing post! For 19, you’re mature well beyond your years! I was the opposite of you…I had my mom involved in every little detail to the point where I wanted to scream. We did everything her way and what she wanted. I just wanted to get through the day, b/c you’re 100% right. It’s not about the small details of the wedding, it’s about the day you marry the man you love and every day after. I’ll be married 3 years in September, and it’s been the best 3 years of my life. I don’t miss my wedding at all, and I keep looking forward to what the future brings with my husband!!

Good luck to you, and thanks for sharing. You really are an inspiration to others!
