- Wedding: February 2013
I did not have much time to plan the wedding. We officially got engaged in September, and FMIL was diagnosed with cancer, so we picked February 2. Less than 5 months to plan the wedding.
We decided to just have an evening ceremony and a big reception, it wasnt possible to have a dinner, and it would have been very stressful trying to plan that!
So planning was going really well. Invitations were almost done, almost ready to be sent out. A little more than 2 months before the date. Then FMIL passed away.
Everything went downhill from there. I am on antidepressants anyway, so for a few weeks I was really down and did absolutely nothing for the wedding. I am feeling much better now, but I am getting too overwhelmed with this wedding!
I feel like I have nothing done, I finally sent out “most” of the invitations this week, waaayy behind schedule and I still have a few more to send out 🙁 On top of that I still need to round up all the email addys for the people who are reception only invitations, and then make them and send them.
The past week I was obsessed with finding a new dress. I finally did, so thats good! One less thing to worry about
But now its all the other stuff…all the little details. I just cant get it together! I feel so guilty about the invitations, and feel like our wedding is less valid than anyone elses because we did not have a dinner.
Ugh just venting I guess…I wish there was some sort of template for planning a smaller wedding, in very short time!
I make a thousand lists, but they always get misplaced. The only thing I have is the final guest list. It is all printed out, and perfect. I wish I could get it together enough to do that for everything else lol
