Agh! I’ve been thinking about this alot lately. Ever since getting engaged, things have been ridiculous, including:
-grandpa getting diagnosed with ALS, given 6 months to live…during which time he leaves my grandma (still married) in our town to go live with his girlfriend in another country. Uhm…what? Our family has always been so “normal”.
-engagement ring “lost” by jewelry store when it was taken to have the wedding band made
-absolutely retarded caterers
-a Bridesmaid or Best Man who no longer talks to me and moved to another province without saying anything to me
-originally my job said they weren’t going to give me time off, although now they have
!?!? Is this happening to anyone else??

@soon2bhis: ((Hugs)) Oh my!!
I know my fiance feels this way, and it’s why I try to make things seem as smoothe as possible. Is our fiance being supportive? It’s hard to plan when you’re just bummed out but you need some positive energy to pull you through. In the end it’s what you want and regardless of how many things go wrong you’ll be up there staring into the eyes of the one you love and pledging to spend the rest of your lives together.
My wedding is as simple as it gets – an elopement!! And there are times it still feels stressful like we won’t be able to pull it off.
You want to make your day beautiful, for your selves and your guests but to be honest it’s not worth getting stressed over, I’m sure regardless your guests will be happy to be invited and celebrate your happy day with you.
Plan a spa day with your fiance or do something fun to get your mind off things for a bit.

i have had MANY days that. i was SO depressed about some things and actually all i wanted to do was cancel the wedidng for another year or two.
but let me tell you. things change, bad days pass, and things start to look up. you just gotta look at the core of why you are having a wedding – you and your Fiance want to be married to each other – that has nothing to do with your grandfather, caterers, BMs, rings or anything. so as long you and your Fiance are okay, eventually the wedding will be too.

Ours was 1 bad day after another venues were awful things were falling apart and he didn’t get paid for 5 weeks because they messed up his loans… I told him we needed to postpone but I kept planning anyway… Then it happened, we found a perfect venue and everything else has fallen into place and our luck came back up… I know it’ll be bumpy again eventually but I think you just gotta take the bad with a shot of tequila and hold on for the good days cause they’ll come!

Oh yes. I have felt that way many times since before we even got engaged. We ran into monetary issues, a promised job fell through, my family promised support and yet I haven’t seen much of anything of that, two of my bridesmaids no longer speak to me and they were my biggest support system, FH had (and is still having) issues with school…
There have been days where I’m seriously ready to call the whole thing off. Sometimes I still feel that way. So far, nothing’s really gotten any better, but I suppose there’s the chance that it might.
