- Wedding: July 2010
I have been reading several posts about stress over budget, envy, and a longing for the platinum weddings. I know how this feels. I felt the same way–to the point that I could no longer watch wedding shows on t.v.
One time when I was stressed about budget, a wedding vendor offered some advice. She reminded me that “everyone has a budget.” Granted, some have higher budgets than others. But most people have to draw the line on their spending somewhere.
This piece of advice helped me throughout the wedding planning process. It reminded me that I was more similar to other brides than I had originally thought. We all have limits on how much we can spend, we all have to make choices about what we want, and, most importantly, we are entering a new, wonderful phase in our lives.
Just some thoughts I would share. Best wishes and happy planning.
