To Whom It May Concern:
Consider this my notice that I am resigning my position of wedding planner to my own wedding, effectively immediately! I am very appreciative for the opportunity to plan such a lovely ocasion. Unfortunately, due to high stress levels from my parents STILL trying to control the situation with their money and my fiance not backing down from the decisions we’ve made, I am going to spontaneously combust if I continue to hold this position any longer.
Thank you, mom and dad, for completely ruining the experience of planning my wedding.
Your Distaught Daughter (and Fiance),

I say the stress will be worth it in the end but we keep thinking about canceling ours all the time. My parents are paying and my dad would rather see us put the $ into the house then it be “waisted” on a wedding

So what’s your plan? Elopement? Hire a planner? Call it off and join a nunery?
This reminds me of days when I get so stressed/unhappy with graduate school that I threaten to quit and open a frozen yogurt store (yes I *have* scoped out a location and the price of buying the machines)

The shorter the engagement, the less time for family drama! I’m going through the same thing! Thank goodness this is only lasting 3 months…that’s my suggestion- bump up the wedding date!!
My mom wrote me an email about how I am ruining the day for her, don’t i care about her feelings, etc, etc…..it went on and on– because I chose to walk to down to a song with words!!! And not an instrumental piece!!

Remember that no one is forcing you to plan a wedding any certain way, though you may think so. If you don’t like planning, don’t. Get married at city hall, elope, or do whatever you want. But when you’re at the end of your rope over planning a wedding? Time to rethink. Good luck! Vent if you want to but keep yourself grounded in reality – you can get married next week if you go get your paperwork today.

Oh I could only imagine the stress of planning the wedding, because I am only getting started. I plan on having my Mom, my bridesmaids, and my Aunt to help me with all the planning. When I say bridesmaids, I actually mean Maid of Honor. They have actually had weddings before or have been in weddings before (I have only been to one in my whole life) and they have much more knowledgable experience than me. The truth is, it will be a rewarding experience for all the people involved, BUT if all you are getting is stress, then I definitely would opt out of the whole wedding planning.

I am so sorry to hear this. Such monster parents on this blog!! Parents have ALREADY had THEIR wedding. Unless you are demanding really expensive things, this is YOUR wedding. That’s why I think it’s best to plan a smaller shindig and pay for it yourself–total freedom! Your post is definitely a contender for Letter From a Pissed Off Bride!
