Sooooooo I love wedding planning. But I’m also quite the perfectionist and it stresses me out. A lot. But I’ve found that our families have been so supportive and helpful and I’m so grateful to them.
The other day I was having an emotional breakdown with my Mom over all of the things that we still need to buy and how little we have left to buy it and she very calmly helped me make a list so we can focus on a little at a time. It really helped.
FMIL has been sending me all of her potential dress options because she wants to make sure that I’m happy with her choice and that it coordinates to my plan and that means so much to me.
I’ve also been stressing out about our cake. I know that we are doing cupcakes, the weekend after we got engaged I told FI’s family about this and about how I was thinking about making them myself to save money and FI’s 21 year old brother volunteered to make the cupcakes! It was so sweet of him. We also wanted to have a top tier of cake so I’ve been frustrated because I don’t want to pay someone to just make a top tier. So today FI’s same brother just texted me and said that he wants to pay for our top tier because he loves us.
I guess I’m just really emotional and overwhelmed about how great everyone is and especially how lucky I am to be marrying into such a fantastic family. I just had to tell someone!
