- Wedding: April 2013
As we all know, wedding planning can be quite stressful. Well, I have been feeling a little overwhelmed for the last few weeks and it finally caught up with me. My FI and I had our first argument yesterday over something that should have been a simple fix.
Between trying to find a decent and affordable caterer, I have been dealing with bridesmaid dress issues, researching florist, looking for tuxes, attending bridal shows, and meeting with family so they can plan a bridal shower. I know it may not seem that bad, but working full time and finding time for wedding planning is stressing me out a little.
Last month I went with my bridesmaids to pick out dresses. We found a dress we liked and the consultant showed us another dress in the color I wanted, or so I thought. When I got home I found out the color is all wrong. So, when my FI and I went up to the store this past weekend to check out tuxes, I took a look at the colors again….still all wrong, but the consultant did nothing but give me a hard time. Then she tries to sell us on a microfiber button up shirt for my FI’s tux. HELLO….we are having an outdoor wedding in April in GA. I told her the fabric would be too hot for the guys to wear and she wouldn’t hear it. Long story short, she pissed me off and I have decided that I’m not purchasing anything from the store. So, I am back to square one with the dresses and the tuxes. I guess I didn’t realize this was going to be such a pain in the a$$…lol
So, last night my FI tells me that his mom is upset because my family is throwing me a bridal shower and she thought I didn’t want her to host one for his side of the family because I invited everyone to my family shower. I told him I didn’t realize she wanted to throw one, but that it would be totally fine if she wanted to. (Now, I don’t really know how this usually works, so I have just been going with the flow) My FI tells me that it is my responsibility to ask people to throw me a shower, which I did not agree with. I think it is rude. If she or anyone else wants to throw a shower then they just do it or ask ME if its ok. In the end it turned into a big argument. So, I spoke with his mom ( who I am very close with) and decided that there would be 2 showers. No problem, I just wish she would have said something earlier on.
So, this is way too much drama and trouble and it makes me really dislike the whole planning process. I dread trying to find a caterer. I am trying to get as much planning done before the holiday months when we will be focusing on other things. Then the first of the year I will have about four months before the big day and I will be spending most of that time with last minute stuff.
Anyone else having wedding stress? Am I right about the bridal shower?
