- Wedding: November 1999
So I’ve been engaged 17 months now. Since the day I got engaged I pretty much have not been able to get my mind off wedding related things. We have done everything along the appropriate timeline, I am keeping a budget tally, and trying to make all these decisions with very little info or help from anyone else. We have no bridal party, very little family, and practically no friends. I do have a coordinator local to our destination but she is really only helping with day of logistics.
We r now down to 6 weeks before we leave (I know, my date is wrong) and it is getting down to the wire on a lot of stuff. Music, cake, tux, timeline, menu, final guest count, dress fittings, etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc and more etc.
So I tried so hard this week to get ppl around me motivated to help me take care of wedding decisions. We ran all over town to tux shop after tux shop after tux shop. No one has a freakin brown tuxedo in the store in my whole state evidently.. So now we get to wait two weeks for one to come in for us to look at to see if its even the right damn shade of brown and FI probanly wpmt get the tailored fit he wants. I have been wanting a sparkler exit and my coordinator says ‘oh ya easy, just ship us the sparklers’ well come to find out nobody on earth will ship that kind of hazardous material over an ocean. Not usps, not ups, not FedEx unless we pay hundreds of dollars to ship or lie about the contents. Found out my iPod won’t connect to the amplifier because its the new iPod that doesnt have the traditional plug that iPods have had for the last 10 years. My quotes from vendors r coming in hundreds of dollars higher than I anticipated, and found out we have to add on $1000 for return flights when we had been planning to fly standby. We looked at flights and they’re almost completely full so we decided not to risk standby. Plus I am getting criticized for ‘getting upset over the little things’. I don’t think music, tux, budget, our exit, and things like that r little details.
Anyway I could go on on and on about my frustrations. It was just that today I couldnt handle it anymore. i broke down in tears and ive been in the shittiest mood since this morning. Just venting right now. I dont know how im going to make it. so ya thanks for reading.
