This has been happening a little bit with us too. For us it’s a mixture of stress on top of the wedding planning. Some days we’ll be happy as can be and other days I think we might rip each others hair out. When it’s all said and done the best thing I can do is just be aware of our stress and know when to take a step back. When things get too heated we both walk away before hurtful things are said. Usually taking even a 5-10 minute brake from each other is enough to calm us both down and realize we were being ridiculous!

Yeah, I feel this way. Everything, from guest list to napkins, seems like it turns into an argument. FI and I are just coming from very different expectations of what a wedding should be.

He thought my parents would literally hand us upwards of $20,000 to have a wedding. Ha! He thinks that a guest list shouldn’t be limited. Wtf? He doesn’t have a problem with his sister trying to book the priest for OUR wedding. Um, hello? He thinks it’s more of a family reunion. I think it’s all about him and I. It should be everything WE want, the way WE want it, how WE want it, etc. He sees no problem with his mom stepping in or his sister stepping in to do some of the planning.

Which leads to a lot of arguments… 🙁 So yeah, I feel you pain. Hang in there 🙂
