Toronto2014:  

I totally feel this way. I guess I thought wedding planning would be more fun than this! There are way too many details to think of that pretty much no one will notice. I thought about hiring a planner but I’m a crazy Type A personality, so I would probably take control if it anyway! FI has been pretty helpful with handling things that I don’t want to or that I find too much to handle at the time. Good luck to you. We miserable/anxious brides must stick together! lol

Toronto2014:  yeah I have free-floating anxiety, even though we are definitely on track. I really like planning but there are tons of little logistical things – how people are getting from one place to another, etc. But I made a huge list on google docs – actually I made a comprehensive checklist for me, and then a list for each of the vendors. Every time I get something done I mark it in red. It has made me feel very organized and lessed stressed and my vendors love their lists too. I would say don’t worry about the tiny things that people won’t miss – like hotel baskets. That’s a nice idea, but not necessary. Sometimes websites and also the hotels make it seem like you’re horrible if you don’t do these things haha, but I assure you your’e not. I’m sure you’re doing lots of nice things for people. My advice is just simplify as much as you can! I feel like no matter how prepared I am I’m going to feel nervous but that’s just how I am anyway.

rosegoldgirl:  I agree-we couldn’t afford a planner and I realized I’m too much of a control freak anyway. It would have been a waste haha
