I saw Mrs DG’s post on best and worst regarding babies and it made me think of all the best and worst things wedding related. Thanks Mrs DG!
Whats the Best and Worst things about the wedding planning process for you?
My Best- Seeing the sparkler on my finger and knowing that he wants to be with me forever, despite my flaws. When people see my ring, they ask about the wedding and of course I cant tell it enough. 🙂 I love getting together with my friends and drooling over wedding stuff and all that comes with it. Seeing the tears in my moms eyes when we went dress shopping. Looking at my Fh and knowing that he is mine and vice versa. Being a bride is a fantastic feeling.
Worst- Dealing with negative comments and people that have no filter. Stressing about whether or not we will be able to save up what we need for the wedding. Stressing if the people I want to be there, will be there (its DW) and whether my brothers who are in the military will be able to take leave. Stressing whether my “vision” will come out the way I see it in my head.
What are your best and worst?

Best – knowing that I will be a married woman & can start the rest of my life with the man I love. And the ring isn’t so bad either…
Worst – PLANNING! I serioulsy hate it! I have been stressed out for a month straight. It just seems like NOTHING is going our way. I also can’t stand my mom saying “It’s your day do what the 2 of you want” & than the next minute she is telling me NO WAY you have to do it like this.
If I did it all over again I would elope or have a small ceremony for just parents/sibling because in the end it’s just about the 2 of us uniting as one right?!

BEST: walking down the aisle, saying our vows… looking straight into my DH’s eyes during the whole ceremony and knowing he means it as much as I do. Taking my parents on their first travel vacation ever and seeing their faces when they saw the ocean for the first time. Priceless. Being able to spend quality time with our loved ones in the days leading to the wedding and the days following it, before being alone for our honeymoon.
Oh, and wearing a cool dress, ha!
WORSE: people stressing over details that I didn’t care about and demanding answers, not listening when I said it did not matter and keeping coming back with questions on the same subject… I really, really didn’t care what people would wear, as long as they were dressed!

BEST: The fact that I married the love of my life! He’s wonderful and everything I could’ve ever asked for in a husband! Our first dance was also amazing – one of the only times we could be together and not have someone interrupt us.
WORST: The entire planning process and the stress. I’ll leave it at that!

Best: I love my Fiance.
Worst: Wedding Planning. I have been doing it for over a year now and am finally fed up with it.

Best: Knowing I’m going to spend my whole life with my best friend, a day surrounded by my closest friends and family celebrating our relationship and future, crazy DIY projects, getting to invest so much of myself into our day, I seriously love it!
Worst: Stupid comments about the date of our wedding and having to give “the lecture” about it over and over, family politics, trying to think of every single teeny tiny thing we might possibly need for our tented wedding (plus being terrified that we’re relying on a friend of ours to loan us 90% of it from their banquet hall!).
I think the pros outweigh the cons for sure. I think I’m going to be bored as heck when this is all done!!!

Best – knowing that I’ve found someone who actually makes me want a lifelong partner and that he wants me too. joining each other’s families (we both get along REALLY well with our respective future in laws). venue visits that allow me to show him some of the spectacular scenery in our new home state. thinking about the EPIC party we are going to be having. thinking about getting to spend a few days together with all our closest friends and family.
Worst – said awesome families being Not So Appreciate of our plan to have the wedding in our home state, not theirs. having to figure out how we can celebrate with older relatives who may not make the trip. feeling like we’re spending extra for this epic party specifically because it is a wedding. worrying that our guests will feel inconvenienced, since most of them don’t live in the area.

BEST: Knowing that I am so lucky to have found the person I truly consider my soulmate and that I get to spend the rest of my life with him. Plus, having all of our close friends and family around to celebrate with us.
WORST: Dealing with people’s opinions. Whether is “I think you should do this…” or the stereotypical “Whoa. Why would you want to ge married?” or the “Well, now you can have babies soon.” Just shut up. I dont need your opinion, or want it.

Isnt it an amazing feeling to know that the person that you are in love with and want to spend your life with, feels the same way? That is incredible to me.

Best – Of planning, finding the location. It was an outdoor ceremony, and I fell in love the moment we stepped into the park. The stone walkway was one of my favorite details. I was absolutely giddy after we reserved it. Of the wedding, the first dance. We had a Japanese song picked out, and it was great that only we truly knew what it meant. And in general, marrying the man I loved, who supports me no matter what, loves me for who I am, and can always make me laugh no matter what situation has me down.
Worst – Dealing with the drama and stress of my family. I changed some details that were important to me in order to make other people happy, and I hate myself for it. To this day, those details are ones that I would refuse to change if I could go back. My father blaming my husband for every wedding decision that he didn’t like, even when I would tell him that every decision was mutual. Basically, I ended up with a wedding that looked (decoration wise, and the food was amazing) the way I wanted it, but the music (which was the most important to me, what I was most excited about) just didn’t do it for me. Though I loved the song that my husband and I walked back down the aisle to, it felt empty because it wasn’t what I truly wanted and what I had imagined walking down to for months.
