Im with you, have been for about a month now! I hope I will get over that feeling once the wedding rolls around. Just tell yourself that it will all be worth it.

I wish I had at times too!  So many people that I wanted to come to our wedding weren’t able to make it which made me pretty upset and I also could never be compeltely happy with my wedding because the most important person to me could never have been there.

Ohhh yes. Actually I wish we could just go get married in Mexico with a few close friends and family. But I really want our grandparents and other close family members to be there that woudln’t be able to afford to come to Mexico.

Florist issues, photographer issues, room block issues…not the best wedding planning week for me either. So yep, I’m with you. Hopefully things get better soon.

The closer I got to the wedding, the more and more I wanted to elope! But I promise you, the day of the wedding it was ALL worth it. It’s super frustrating while you’re going through it, but hang in there, you’ll be so happy you did. I am!

Since day one!!!  I’m almost there (2 weeks) so there’s no sense in giving up now.  We had issues with room blocks as well from family.  All we got were complaints from FI’s family it was ridiculous.  How about a thanks every now and then, huh?  Then my family didn’t book their rooms before the deadline.  No idea where they are staying and I’m not stressing about it- I’ve offered help for months, reminded them billions of times.

It was FI that wanted the wedding with me doing all the work so we had a little talk and he’s helping out now, which is great and keeping me out of the mental hospital 😉

Yes.  I wish we had eloped so we weren’t bleeding money like we seem to be now…. Good thing it’s almost over with!

I wish that now and we are a year out.  We are both so busy – – I coordinate events at a hotel for a living, so I feel like I am always in planning mode.  I’d much rather coordinate someone elses big day though.
