I’m glad to hear it’s not just me! This will be our 4TH attempt at trying to plan our wedding. All family related.. The first 2 attempts his parents couldn’t make it, the 3rd time, his sister got pregnant and interfered with the date we chose, and now, the 4th one seems to suit everybody.. Just a few(fairly important) relatives of mine can’t make it, but his parents are MORE important.
The only thing is, I HATE the date. It is in February, which will 100% be pouring rain, it is on my BIRTHDAY as we have no other options and I, literally, have to Squeeeeze in into my work holilday and still take a few days off work. Plus, none of our friends from where we live now, can make the 7,000 mile, $2,000+ trip… 🙁
So maybe all of the things that suck about it, are causing my hesitation.. We already have the church and venue…. which is the easy part, I think! Now the small things are overwhelming me.. Like invitations(how can I make them here, and mail them 7,000 miles away?– So.. this means my poor mom has to do that(AND, to be honest, she is not very crafty. She is the , “Eh, well it’s not straight, or even, ooops, oh well, noone will notice!!”, or “Oh well, I spelled their name wrong, let’s just put a line through it and write it below…!”- type. I am a perfectionist. I love her to death, but we are just opposite in this way..
Then things that I had NO IDEA I would need or completely forgot about, like, Ushers, Programs, Escort Cards, Maps, Table Cards, Gift Card Box… all of those, mainly, DIY things are freaking me out. I am not in Canada and there just aren’t things like those here.. Which means, my mom has to get/arrange and make those things. I just think she will forget a few or do a lackluster job(Sorry mom)
We all have to fly in to this one city to meet for the wedding and I keep thinking some things will get forgotten or lost along the way… And we have about 5-7 days max in the city, before the wedding. Still needing to get FI’s Tux, his Best Man’s Tux, shoes for both of us, and another 1 million little things…
Any words of wisdom or more advice? How can I get those small things done and out of the way?
How will I fill out Thank You cards and mail them when we return to where we currently live the day after the wedding? Ask Dear Mom to be responsible??? OMG….
