- Wedding: September 2014
I’ve been engaged for almost a month now. We booked a venue and set a date for September 6th, 2014.
All I’ve been hearing from family is that I’m too far behind. I’ve never been a girl who has been planning her wedding since she were five. I have no idea what I want. I don’t know what kind of dress, what colors, what flowers, what music, who the bridesmaids will be, what the guest list looks like. Everyone keeps asking me all these questions and it’s giving me anxiety. All these things that I don’t care about, everyone is telling me it is going to be a huge deal (bridesmaid’s dresses, flowers, white plastic chairs at the venue, etc.).
My mom brought me dress shopping yesterday and I just wanted to cry in the store. Everything I thought I liked she hated. Everything she loved, I hated. She was visiting from out of town, and now that she’s gone, I don’t have anyone to go dress shopping with. No friends or family where I live. They were telling me I needed to buy a dress in the next few weeks if I was going to have one on time for the wedding. I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to do all of this by myself.
I can’t be the only one who feels this way. Any words of advice for a lost and confused bee?
