I’m planning a wedding in Canada from the UK with guests travelling from Sweden, UK, Brunai, US and all over Canada so I fully understand your worries. It’s not so bad though, lots can be done over mail, Skype etc and I have found my vendors really helpful And understanding of my situation too. Key is to keep it simple and managable for yourself I think. i domt have a wedding planner but our venue includes food, ceremony and DOC so that makes things so much easier for me. PM me if you want to chat some more about it. 🙂

You’re better than me.  We lived in Texas, were both from Michigan, and I was like to hell with this and we eloped to New Orleans lol.

I’m a big fan of writing things down.  Not putting them in a computer, but writing them by hand in a planner.  Maybe that will help you?

@Kail22:  Ha, I guess we’re rebels.  He was the only boy in his family, I’m the only girl and the first born.  I was like ffffff it.  I’m not messing with it.  We had some people mad, but oh well.

As for planners, I love Erin Condren, my fave!  A little pricey, but totally worth it 🙂

I’m planning a wedding in Sweden from Canada – with both bridesmaids in Sweden. I’ve wanted a lot of feedback from them, so we all signed up for WhatsApp and it has been great! I can send them links for dresses, photos and thoughts and get instant replies. Don’t want to think about the logistics without it!

  • Wedding: April 2015

We’re getting married in NC, but live in Alberta, Canada right now. My mom I found out is basically going to be of no help, although she lives in the city we’re getting married in. Her excuse? She might mess something up and then I’ll be upset, although I told her I’d set up all her appointments. I’d just need her opinion and for her to take some photos of items for me. One of my bridesmaids, and my sister (aka maid of honour) lives there too, but I’m not holding my breath on those two. My sister might highjack the wedding and my bridesmaid is super busy with her own wedding at the moment. So I’ve decided I’m going to try to just skype with vendors if I can, get lots of photos from them, organize everything, and pray it goes smoothly. I’m also hiring a DOC though, cause on my wedding day the last thing I will want to do is be stressed.
