    This is the strangest part of wedding planning – I’m not excited about the wedding day! I am really enjoying the planning, and of course I look forward to being married, but the wedding day itself feels very abstract to me, so therefore it’s hard for me to be “excited” about it because it doesn’t feel real yet.

    The wedding planning has strained my relationship with my sister, although I think it just took this event for me to realize we’re not very close.

    FH is inviting his mom’s side of the family, but none of them are coming because of a financial fight that is going on after a relative passed away (we’re not really a part of it).

    @Pinksapphire:  This is so cool! Will you share your findings when it’s all done? What sort of program/class is this for?

    The planning hasn’t affected any of my personal relationships (yet…but I don’t feel like it will).  But I can say, as I assume most brides do, I’ve had many stressful days in the whole process.  The whole dress shopping experience gave me serious anxiety – to the point where I was having chest pains.  (Embarassing, I know)  And, I had a nightmare last night that it was our wedding day, 4 hours til the ceremony, and we realized we forgot everything.  Food, chairs, tablecloths, etc etc.  I woke up just as my mom and aunt were arriving with navy blue fleece blankets to use for tablecloths, and plastic grapes/fruit to use as centerpieces…  So, yeah, I think wedding planning might make us a little crazy. 🙂  Sorry, I know that probably didn’t help you at all.

    @Pinksapphire:  First of all, congrats on merging WB and homework… genius!

    I don’t know if this will fit in to your homework, but I didn’t actually realize how much I hated weddings until I started planning my own. I don’t like loud music or flashing lights, catered food makes me sick, and I have never been terribly good at talking to people I have never meet or old relitives I haven’t seen since gradeschool.

    for these reasons the guest list started about about 50 people, then got cut to 30, I just recently cut it again to 25, offended all of my siblings and thier spouses and kids by not inviting them (I am the youngest of 7 and they all have at least 3 kids, its not going to happen!) I offended more people by not having a bridal party, I confused people by not registering, and when people learned that the wedding wasn’t in a church or a hall or a park or anyplace on the US Roadsystem they got supremely offended. (one relitive even called it an ‘unvite’) eh. I am not doing what makes us happiest becuase what would make me happiest is just moving to the bahamas and not worrying about anything wedding related ever… but the family wants a wedding and thats what they are getting, kind of.

    @Pinksapphire:  I cannot imagine working my senior thesis and planning a wedding at the same time. Good luck to you!
