because I do….
My wedding isn’t till Sept. 3 and I am a long distance bride-to-be. All of my bridesmaids live in SC while I am in GA. My car is broke and waiting to be fixed which should be soon so I can go and pick out dresses. I am currently unemployed which kind of worked for my to complete my DIY projects but I get bored easily and have been on countless interviews. Luckily my dad is taking me to contact who is hiring and theres a really good chance I’ll get the job.
Its like the excitement is fading….slowly…..My bridesmaids haven’t really called me but a few times but I’m ok with that because they have lives. I guess it would be nice to get a little support once in a while. You don’t have to be all up in my cheeks but a “hey how are things?” would be ok.
I dunno…….I just feel…..blah?

I totally feel you. I thought the wedding planning process would be fun, but it’s just been a load of work that I’ve had to handle alone. I’m unemployed currently too, so it just adds stress financially…

@Whimsical.Sprite: It really does
Not only do we have a tap water budget my cousin WAS getting married a month after us but now he’s getting married a month ahead in the friggin Virgin Islands…..Ugh :/

I started feeling like that too. I’m in a different situation though. I don’t really want help from my BMs, but I didn’t really hear from them that often. So I decided I’m going to call them more often. That way I can see how they’re doing and they will most likely ask how my wedding plans are going. I hate planning btw… it’s not my thing.
I understand what it’s like to feel not supported though. I would give them a call and see what they’re up to 🙂

Ouch, feels like you have a lot going on besides wedding planning! Just give them a call, but don’t always talk about wedding stuff, see how THEY are doing, too.
It’s TOUGH. I’m in tax, so working 70/hours a week right now, wedding planning from a big distance and trying to plan showers/bachorelette parties/wedding stuff from a distance and I’ll be taking the last part of my CPA exam in May. I’m so SICK of making decisions about every little detail and tired of being so busy. But, I then take a step back and try to remember it should be fun, too.
Best of luck on the planning and job search!
