1) Guest list limits/issues.

2) The statement “but there are different shades of black”.

@lindseyl06:  

1) guest list

2) dealing with Future Mother-In-Law

3) people’s feelings of entitlement

4) The fact that i’d rather have had a really small wedding or eloped but it would break everyone’s heart and I can’t have what I really want.

So far, nothing really.  We had a hard time finding a venue in our price range that had adequate capacity, but other than that things are going ok.

We decided to not send out STD’s, so we won’t have any issues in the event our guest list changes some and they we’d be stuck sending invitations to everyone we sent STD’s to.

We are hosting an open bar so we don’t have to decide which beer and which wines and pick a signuature cocktail.  Ahhh, no decisions 🙂

I tried on like 50 dresses before I found one I loved.  I’m a little terrified at how much alterations will be, but the gown itself was off the rack and on sale, so I can allocate a bit more of my dress budget to the alterations.

We also decided to have a lunch reception, because I refuse to invite more people than my budget OR venue can hold.  It will save on my stress later on!

We’re also having a 2 year engagement, so I’ve been able to spread out the planning stress over a longer period of time so I don’t feel like it’s too much.  I still have like 6 months to go too, and all I really need to do is alter my dress and figure out some center pieces.

  • That it highlights the fact that my family is super dysfunctional
  • Trying to please everyone, and not doing what I want
  • Being judged for our decisions

I hated most of the planning process. The only parts I really enjoyed were meeting with our florist, and seeing our venue for the first time. But there were definitely two things that had Darling Husband and I tearing our hair out on a regular basis.

– Creative differences with my parents over “traditional” wedding aspects.

– Getting it into MIL’s head that she could not invite her entire extended family to the wedding. Even after we told her there was no way in hell people who hadn’t seen Darling Husband since he was 2 years old were getting invited, she was still convinced that she would get to choose half of the entire guest list…she didn’t seem to understand that Darling Husband and I needed our own portion of the list for, y’know, OUR friends.

1. That everyone thinks their opinion is most important.

2. That we’ve had to plan everything so fast, and some people are complaining because we haven’t gotten to the stuff that is fun for them yet.

3. Guest list

Only think I haven’t liked is how hard it’s been to find a church. We found one and we are now regular members but still have to go through counsilling and what not. It’s kind of annoying.

Watching my budget spin out of control.

And how everyone has an opinion about how I’m “wasting” money.
