OK I have been feeling this way for the last week. My guest list is doubled and the budget out the window. I have no idea how much I’ve spent or will in the end. Just can’t seem to care. I printed out the Destination Wedding list the hotel attached and got depressed all over again ! I imagine this normal. I was all happy with the planning and details in the beginning. Now I just want it over and I still haven’t even got into the floral end of things yet ..ugh !

I’m so positive this is normal! I guess this is better than the alternative- the neurotic, stressed bride-to-be. Everything will work out!

These feelings are totally normal. I had a perfect vision of how I wanted my wedding to be and then realized that everything was over budget. And my parents are helping us which is great, but at the same time is causing so much more stress. They aren’t in the position either but are determined to help us so I feel like my whole house is on pins and needles the whole time. I want my wedding, but at the same time I feel like I just want to elope.
Since flowers was on a the later end of what I planned for the wedding I just picked what I somewhat liked and wasn’t that expensive. I feel like I’m in shock every time I meet with a vendor.

I’ve been feeling this way lately, too.
We’re three months out and it seems like there are a million tiny tasks that all require immediate attention.
Like being bitten to death by ducks.

…bitten to death by ducks. I like this. Reminds me of that Tennesee Williams play.. what is it… Suddently Last Summer. Someone got eaten by seagulls. ANYWAY, I’m feeling this too, mostly because I know that once we get the BIG things booked, we get to focus on the little things I am SO LOOKING FORWARD to get to focus on the little things. he big things are scary and overwhelming. Little things are DIY and manageable. We just need to get there first. Sigh.

See, I like the big stuff better because it’s easy to fit things into a hierarchy of tasks. Must have venue before caterer, must have caterer before rentals and so on… The little stuff feels frustrating and overwhleming because it’s harder to prioritize.
