- Wedding: October 2013
I hear a lot of people talking about how stressful wedding planning is and I think “how is it stressful? you get to look at pretty things and eat cake and plan a party for all your loved ones” And for the most part I still feel that way. But last night I had a little meltdown that took me off my highhorse of thinking anyone who got stressed over wedding stuff is petty and unappreciative.
My fiance and I didn’t see eye to eye on what kind of content to put in our ceremony programs, and we ended up arguing about the whole wedding. It was surprising because we have been planning everything side-by-side. He’s been really involved and we’ve both been open and upfront about what we do and don’t want. For the most part, we’ve agreed on things. The small disagreements we’ve had have been worked out fairly smoothly. But yesterday’s battle about the programs turned in to a whole argument ranging from how we feel about certain religious elements of the ceremony to whether we’re too caught up in it and whether we’re spending too much money, to what kind of feelings we want to convey that day, to, of course, our ever-evolving discussion on how we communicate with each other (hint: overall well but dammit sometimes we frustrate each other with our different communication styles).
Things are totally fine this morning and no wedding plans have changed. We’re still on the same page about most things. But man, I was freaking out there for a sec. I definitely felt like I was just being overly-sensitive and tired and stressed and had been blowing things out of proportion. It sucked to admit that. 🙂
