So…FI just had to talk me down about how much stressing I’m doing over our reception. I’ve been doing nothing but Weddingbee and Blogs today 🙂
But it made me think, all of these beautiful blogs have brides talking about, “Well…one of our good friends is a graphic designer, so they did all the invites and paper as our gift” or “My mother owns a bakery and made us 85 different cake flavors,” etc….
Does this grate on anyone else’s nerves? Perhaps I just need more talented friends and family 🙂

Lol. I get it. We are the creative people in our entire group of friends.
So we are often the friends they’re talking about. But, if I was having a traditional wedding, it would be all on us because our friends aren’t…

@axeyourmakeupkit: It’s a big joke in our family to say, “I could totally make that,” but we never really could 🙂

I try to do my best at things and I am pretty creative but nobody asks me to do stuff.

Well, not so much with wedding stuff, but it definitely feels like everyone but FI and I seems to be best friends with a plumber, electrician, IT person, lawyer, accountant etc etc – things that often come in handy in everyday life.
i guess the same could be said for the wedding stuff, but perhaps you just need to look around for people’s hidden talents. One of my BM’s has done a bit of flower arranging before and is really good, so she will help me with that, and my bridesman is a film editor so he said he will whip up a cool video to show at the reception, but what we’d REALLY love is someone to design all our stationary, bake a cake, do the photography/cinematography… actually, pretty much everything would be IDEAL, ha! I wouldn’t say it grates on me, but I think people are very lucky who have these different resources. You probably have them too, just not in the wedding-planning realm?

@Jezika: Hmmmm…..I really don’t think anyone in my family is talented 🙂 Seriously though, my sister is helping with the centerpieces, but I definitely don’t know anyone who could design and print all of my paper or even make a wedding cake.

@AJ1982: Yah, me neither. To me, those things would be the ultimate! Especially the designing thing. I really have no idea what we will do with that. It is SO expensive and I know anything we’d design ourselves would be naff.
