Just wanted to say that right now I feel like the mom/realtor in the movie American Beauty who has a complete meltdown in the living room of the house she is showing.
Wedding planning and dealing with family, etc. is so irritating!!
I just needed to vent. [email protected]!!!

You’ve come to the right place! Let it out! Wedding planning is so stressful! Especially when family isn’t cooperating.

Has anyone felt like their fiance was pulling away during the wedding planning, almost like they didn’t want to get married anymore? I think it’s just he is sick of me talking about it (so I am trying to do stuff on my own – he said whatever you want) and he feels bad because he didn’t reach his personal goals of us buying a house before we were married.
Then we are moving the ceremony up to next month because my stepdad is ill, and just wanted it intimate and now my step mom is inviting these people and asking me where the invites are. HELLO!!! I haven’t even sent out my save the dates. I was not going to buy invitations for the ceremony. An email to the appropriate people was sufficient and telephone calls. It is hard with all these divorced and remarried parents and families in our circle. I know they are trying to help but are getting on my nerves!!

My fiance is oblivious of the details that go into planning. He wants to get married and go home. He’s not into having a reception and I feel that the celebration is important for my family and his, I want to celebrate our union. How have you guys talked to your fiance about being more involved?

I haven’t sent out my save-the-dates either, since I’m having a hard time getting everyone to send me their mailing addresses. I have to invite a lot of people that I don’t communicate with regularly, which is why I don’t have their contact info. Every day that goes by without me sending those save-the-dates makes my stress level go up. Don’t worry, hun, we’ll make it!

Thanks for your posts. I got most of my save the dates written up this weekend but still need to order invitations… Had a meltdown tonight. My fiance is being great but doesn’t understand the stress. He doesn’t worry like me 🙂

I feel the same way! It feels like my to do list just keeps growing and growing. I feel like I need to ask family for opinions since they are helping to pay but I get frustrated a lot of times when they don’t understand. When I was still in the research only phase of planning Fiance had no idea how much work I was doing. Now that he can see all of the projects he is feeling like he needs to help more. Wedding projects are getting me out of doing the dishes!
