Ditto Mattel.  I loved waiting and definitely miss it. I wonder if I can go back to waiting and just sort of plan? 

 

 

NAH!! lol! But I do miss it because now I have to worry about finding the perfect dress and the other “perfect” things to live up to my company’s reputation etc. I am physically sick thinking about it.

oh crebre – not to worry! you know it will all work out to be FAB-YOU-LOUS!! (notice i used the word “you” there Wink )

ahh such sage words of advice, Mattel. but honestly, i can’t WAIT until i can start pulling the trigger. i’ve been daydreaming for like 2 years now!!! which is long enough to feel like i know what i want and i’m ready to go get it! i’m not a type A person at all but i looooove planning. making sh** happen is actually what i do for a living – i’m just waiting for my life to catch up!

@Mattel – I waited almost 4 years until he popped the question and I think your advice is SPOT ON.  Although, it’s so hard to be on this side of it giving that advice to those waiting.  I’m not sure I would have heard it and truly understood until going through it.  Also, give yourself a few months to let it all sink in.  Those first few weeks were the most overwhelming – I thought I had all the ideas sorted out – but when it came to making the actual decision it was a totally different ball game!!  One day at a time – enjoy the ride!!

Mattel, I feel the same way!

I have been looking at ideas for a few months now and bookmarking things and now I have to go through all those bookmarks and actually call vendors and figure out not only what I like….but what I will DO for my wedding.  It’s a very daunting!

I agree too, although I don’t know if I *miss* it. I didn’t like waiting at all, I was so impatient, but awhile afterward, I wished that I had stopped to “smell the roses” and enjoy it more, because it really is such an exciting time.
