@ducky244:  First of all, WELCOME TO THE HIVE!

I’m sorry to hear about your situation.


Ducky I’m trying hard to put myself in your shoes.  In most cases I read about on here…well, the problem is that brides know exactly what they want and have to deal with getting shut down from their FI or their MOMzilla who knows how they want the day to be.  It’s interesting to see this from the other side of the situation.

I think if I were you I’d take about a week off from thinking or planning the wedding, and just see what develops.  

Do you have bridesmaids?  A Trusted MOH?  I’m sure that there are other women or family members who would love to help.  If nothing develops in a week, I’d take a bridesmaid/friend out for a drink, bring up the list and honestly ask for help.  Heck, I’ll help you, do you have a color scheme?  I’d love to get some practice in before planning my own wedding LaughingWe can talk on here!!  I’m not kidding!  I’m obsessed and not engaged yet so what else am I to do with this energy haha!

And good luck!

@ducky244:  Hiring a wedding planner if it’s in your budget can make things way easier.  Aside form that, choosing a venue that offers full service is another great option because they sometimes also offer a coordinator as part of their services.

And you can always post options on the Bee for feedback.  Collecctively the Bees have a lot of experience and advice to give.  If your FI and/or mother don’t like what you choose then ask where they were when you wanted their help to plan the wedding.
