The thing that stresses me out more than anything else regarding wedding planning:  His mother.

the unknown.  I swear I keep thinking what if the power goes out…  what if the DJ forgets to show up. . .

Nobody else really giving a shit about my wedding is my biggest stress.

The “little” things we didn’t figure into our budget because we didn’t think about them… they are slowly adding up.  >:(

Guest list. FOR SURE!! I dont want to invite a bunch of kids or people he grew up with but never sees. OR have 3 tables of MIL’s friends specifically. 

I wanted a small wedding.  Now i have had to say our HARD limit for numbers is 225. 

Ugh.

People’s expectations! I’m really tired of everyone else and their $0.02.

anything that requires me to have to deal with my mother, so basically everything.

Hoping to have enough people to invite to my wedding to justify a wedding! I am thinking of inviting my aunts and uncles, mom, and maybe cousins. But some don’t approve of my SO, especially my mom. So if my mom doesn’t come, all may feel awkward and not come either so as not to offend… sigh

He is inviting his stepfather, not his stepmother, and some friends from work.  None of his family, 2 brothers and 2 sisters, are making the cut! He is not talking to his siblings at all.  It’s sad.

Maybe I should invite people from the street instead…

People’s stupid demands.  “Please don’t seat me with X.”  “You better have Y liquor!”

 

And fiance’s family who moves as slow as molasses to get things done.

I think it’s a combination of the money involved (a big one for us because we are having a short engagement and have had a lot of surprise NWR expenses sneak up on us this summer) and just the painful little details…there’s so many of them!

Guest books, programs, to throw toss or not to throw toss, centerpieces, to unplug or not to unplug, menus, candles, reading the fine print of your venue contract to make sure your candles don’t violate their liability, music lists, timelines, cake topper, servingware, favors, bride robe, wedding party gifts, signage, lighting, and doing it all while staying under budget and managing your vendors. Argh! This is the stuff that haunts short-engagement brides that I often feel like I need a few more months to wrap my head around. But supposedly it sneaks up on long-engagement brides all the same.

Signing the checks and spending the money.  I work hard and I work even harder to save so watching that bank account get lower and lower is painful.  Cry
