I am defninitely stressed out about the dress size. I know that sounds really lame, but my friend tried on 10s and 12s tonight… I’ve got to be able to get down to at least that small in like, 3 months! So yeah, I’m a little jealous of how small some people are.

I also envy people with FANTASTIC invitations- I really want to DIY (DIM for myself?) but I have NO idea how I’m going to pull that off!

I’m guilty of petty jealousy, too. Especially the people who just seem effortlessly thin (you know, those people who are somehow just right, with curves but slender, who have perfect skin and hair, but don’t worry about what they eat?) 

I’ve found that when I eat healthy a lot of this goes away. Even if I’m not perfect, I feel good, and so I don’t concentrate as much on the little things. As for the wedding jealousy, I think the DIY trends and WB have really helped me with that. Personalizing the wedding makes me feel more in control of what makes it sparkle. 

Ooh, and people with natural athletic ability. I’m clumsy and have continually tried to build up running endurance to no avail.

Haha, I think this was more rant-y than constructive. Sorry!

I’m jealous of brides who actually have their groom in the same country as them… I’m planning our wedding 100% on my own, 3000 miles away from my love.

Some days its really hard to want to plan my wedding.

When he gets here in December we have 3 weeks to hammer out a billion details & I know its going to completely overwhelm him! Sigh.

It’s really silly, but I’m sort of jealous of people with long hair. I have a super short pixie cut (about an inch!) which I love for everyday, but I wish it could be long for the wedding, I love updos or pretty waves. It’s so short I’ll have to put my veil on a headband.

There’s this one couple in our social circle who just became engaged like, a month or so ago, and I’m finding myself getting jealous over the fact that she’s already booked their reception at the venue that I really wanted.. but couldn’t afford.

She’s got one of those WeddingBook things through theknot.com linked to her Facebook account, so I see the updates as she notes them and I feel jealous of the fact that she’s already got the whole thing planned and I’m just sort of swimming in a sea of uncertainty because I have no idea what to do for the reception table settings with less than 5 months left.. and hers are already thrown together in mock-ups and stuff.

@recessionista I love my short hair for everyday, I just want it to be long for only my wedding day. Maybe I should wear a wig, lol.

@cinema: I know, right? I don’t want to have a pity party– but the last few weeks I’ve had zero excitement towards my wedding. Lately I just want to cry about it. Its like “this isn’t how its supposed to be” but unfortunately it is what it is!

Ladies, definitely give your man a hug tonight (or the next time you see him) & be thankful that you can do that πŸ™‚

I am jealous of people with super happy families that can all come together in joy!!  My parents had an extremely hostile divorce, and my wedding will be the first time they’ve seen each other in YEARS… father is remarried, mother is not.  On a day to day basis, I really feel like my wedding is 1/2 about my wedding, and 1/2 about family drama!  I feel like people are more dreading/anxious about the family tensions than they are excited & happy about the wedding.  πŸ™   I’m so jealous of the brides & grooms who have that happy, warm, supportive vibe from their families.
