What is most recently stressing you out with wedding planning? I’ll go:
Our invitations finally arrived and the calligrapher is sick with a stomach virus. She is the only calligrapher in town.
Also, I had a nightmare last night that my hair and makeup weren’t done, but I was running really late and had to walk down the aisle. I know, it sounds vain but I was very glad it was just a dream!!
Wow! How about everyone else?

My DIY projects. I feel like I bit off more than I can chew in that area. My list feels overwhelming.
I keep dreaming that I forget to buy shoes and I’m stuck borrowing from my sister on the day of. I wear a 7 and she wears an 8.5 so obviously that makes no sense.

The DJ. We don’t have one yet and our wedding is in less than 3 months. We can’t really afford most of the quotes I’ve gotten either.

OMG where do I even begin? Transportation for guests, finishing our website, and finding invitations I don’t hate top the list currently. Oh, also, my skin still hates me and I have my makeup trial this weekend, so I guess we’ll see how good she really is. Have a dermatologist appointment tomorrow because the last one I went to SUCKED and did nothing so I’m hoping and praying this one comes through. Also, FI and I just moved to a new place this past weekend and it was his birthday so with all the dishes/pots/pans packed and passover and easter and birthday dinners I fell off the diet wagon. So, um, yeah – stress all over the place.

my mother in the law. overstepping boundaries. driving me crazy on a daily basis and not shutting the hell up about MY wedding. It’s keeping me up at night. Oh, and she’s stuck living with us since she decided leaving her husband was the best thing to do right before our wedding. (sorry, vent. today is one of those days)

@kittyachi: I should add that I do NOT have a makeup artist yet. Need to get on that, stat. Also, I hated 99 percent of invites. We got ours from paperterie if you haven’t looked there yet.

Not having tables and chairs yet, my food people taking months to email me back, and just a general feeling of butterflies, thinking about the actual day, now that it’s less than 3 months away. It’s been fun for the most part though and I’m really excited!

Future in-law drama. Which is something I always thought I could avoid. 🙁
Not surprisingly, I had my very first scary/panicky wedding-day dream last night… It was the usual OMG-nothing-is-ready-how-can-it-be-my-wedding-day?!-style dream. I have a feeling I’m in for many more of those! 🙁

@hotchild – that is so funny, I’ve had a similar shoe dream twice! I was about to walk down the aisle and had to run to the mall to buy shoes and no stores even had matching pairs in my size. Weird.
@Kittyachi – I also hated 99% of the invitations I saw. I ended up going wtih Mr. Boddington’s which is actually located in NYC.
@Marlew – that does sound stressful! Sorry about your FMIL and wow you are a very good person to let her live with you!
@soonerpsych – What about having an Ipod wedding? My sister went to one and LOVED it! The bride and groom hired a DJ only for the ceremony then did an Ipod reception. I’m sure you thought about it already, but wanted to reassure you that it’s a good option! 🙂

making my own bouquet of the right flowers and size, and centerpieces that I also will be doing. I’m stressed about making them look good. !!!

Lack of money for extras! We’re on budget for everything except the extras I want to do like make a children’s activity box, bathroom basket for ladies room, and a few gifts I’ve recently thought of for thank yous. Hopefully once we get all our RSVPs in we’ll have some extra money for this.

My sister/MOH. She stated that my wedding was ruining her summer and she would be glad when it was over. I’m trying not to let her get me down about all of this!

I keep dreaming that I forgot to have my dress cleaned or altered, or that I have to walk down the aisle with no makeup and undone hair.
It’s just a tad nervewracking.
At the moment I’m stressed about finishing OOT boxes, making sure all the vendors are paid up prior to week of wedding and collecting the last of our DIY decor elements.
Did I mention that we’re hosting the reheasal dinner at our apartment?

@Ms. Library – Wow. Ouch! O_o
I’m sorry your sister is being so, um, special right now.

@teaandtoast – Ah!! You are hosting the rehearsal dinner?? Well, that actually sounds quite intimate and nice. I’m assuming others are helping out wiht the setup, etc?
Lots of these nightmares about not looking good before walking down the aisle! I think I need another hair trial..
@ms.library – that is stressful, I’m sorry about your sister. Sometimes people say things and don’t realize the impact it actually has on others. If she isn’t married yet, maybe one day she will understand..
