Daenaria727:  I FEEL YOU.

We were so happy and thought, “this is a breeze!” months ago when we got our church, venue, photographer, caterer, DJ. dress.  Now it’s all detail shit.  I hate all of it.  And I’m on a budget as well so I can’t just pay someone to do it all for me.  

WEDDINGS SUCK.

If you’re doing a budget wedding you don’t need to have favours. A poll on here the other day showed that most bees don’t even take them home anyway.

Tell your FI that if he wants the huge wedding, he should take on the stress of the details!!

Daenaria727:  None of the things you are stressing about are required elements of a wedding. If having a “theme” and coordinating decorations and favors fills you with joy, then go for it! But why bother if it’s stressing you out?

Your wedding needs neither a theme nor favors.

Daenaria727:  BurlapnLace:  Yes. Much wedding hatred. Three weeks (or something like that) left and I am ready to elope. Or just go sign the papers, pray together, and be married. Why on earth did I ever think a big family wedding with guests flying in from out of town would be a FUN thing to do over my summer?? I blame pinterest. :p

Daenaria727:  Bah! DH did this to me so many times! I’d have a great idea, and he’d nix it but not come up with an alternative. I finally said that he’s only allowed to shoot down an idea if he has a new one to replace it with. After that he was a lot more selective about what he shot down and our planning conversations were a lot more constructive instead of frustrating. Lots of the things he shot down were just “too overdone” or “not unique”… we’re not terribly unique people so I dont know why all of a sudden he cared about that haha.

If he is anti-twine, use ribbon and paper in your wedding colors. You could use white paper and green ribbon to match the starbucks cup or just use the wedding colors you already have.
