I was defintely at that point a few weeks before the wedding.  It wasn’t all bad but I’m glad it’s over.

The hatred comes and goes. I’m still 9 months out. I’ve done most if not all of the planning… now, I’m just doing (which I guess is part of the planning). Sigh…

It seems even the most easygoing brides have “HOLY HELL!!!” planning moments, even the ones who love all things wedding!

I hear you. I’ve hated a lot of it, basically up to the point where we sent out the save the dates and people who aren’t directly involved with planning started to get excited. Up until then, it kind of felt like I was doing all this incredibly irritating and useless crap for some pie-in-the-sky, unreal set of people who would be coming to make us spend a lot of money and be really out of our element for a day. Especially now that a lot of logistica, have to happen kind of things are done, I’m starting to get to enjoy the idea of planning a pretty party for people we (at least mostly) love and are really happy to have celebrate with us.

But at the same time, I’m bracing myself for that run up to the end of planning where everything will probably seem like ridiculous busywork all over again!

TOTALLY.  You have an awesome point.  We will Never have to do this again!!!  Woohoo!  I find it so discouraging when i get a great idea…. and can’t afford to do it.  Then I have to figure out HOW to do it…. for a smaller price/ without looking cheap/trashy.  

I’m almost done also… we’re in the homestretch (and I’m so jealous that your wedding is this weekend and I have to wait another 2 weeks… lol) 

 

Not to change the subject but…..

My BFF’s bridal shower is as soon as I get home from my honeymoon.  Now THAT is one miserable thing I’m not looking forward to.  I’m dreading every single event related to her wedding.  Long story…. I love the girl as a sister…. She wouldn’t help with my bridal showre (b/c she is “too busy with her wedding things/ can’t afford anything b/c of her wedding)… there’s been drama with her shower…. people causing said drama are going to bail on their parts (for legit reasons… but I KNEW this was going to happen).  My bff has been completely debbie downer about her ENTIRE wedding.  Literally, I’m not Suzie Sunshine about wedding stuff…. but oh my she is SOOOOOOOOO negative— and procrastinating EVERYTHING…. No one in the wedding party is going to have the time to help her last minute. The relationship is a mess (and has never been that good… unless he has his credit card out), she’s so unhappy with Everything in her life… I’m kinda upset to be Maid/Matron of Honor for this marriage… I want to be happy for her, but it’s just so dang hard! 

 

Ok, Vent over…..I feel better

I can honestly say I didn’t like it too much either.  I am the type to shop around for certain things, so I just didn’t know when to stop.  (Over 20 venues, over 70 dresses…etc.)

I’m glad I don’t have much to do anymore either.  I just ordered the personalized beverage napkins for the cocktail hour.  I still need my cake topper.  Fiance and I are doing the three letter monogram for our invites, so I’d like that or our last initial as the topper.  And we need to book the rehearsal dinner. 

Other than that, I think I’m done, thanks to my mom!  She has gotten me practically everything.  I think she saw how stressed out I was getting.

YES. I feel like I am doing EVERYTHING and it is getting old. At this point, eloping sounds like an excellent idea…

@galloway111:  Aw, hang in there.  My mom did get a little crazy with the invitations.  She felt like we sent them out too late.  We sent them out about 3 weeks ago, and put June 15th as the rsvp date.  So how are your nerves?  My wedding is in 5 weeks and I have had such stomach aches that I usually don’t have.
