I am planning our wedding, and we are on a “small” budget.
I’m so nervous everything I have purchased and have in mind for the ceremony and reception isn’t going to come together how I’m picturing it… it’s driving me crazy. I’m about to lose my mind completely and put together an actual poster board with pictures and cut outs of everything.
Tell me I’m not the only one, and it will all be ok! 🙁

@eliseemma: Awww you definitely arent the only one. At least your wedding is here in the states. I’m planning one in Rio de Janeiro so I know all about the stress. Our budget is reasonable or so we think but when trying to do comparisons from Brazilian dollars to US dollars it gets a little complicated! If you are a visal person, a story board might not be a bad idea. You can do inspiration pics and research prices and write them on the board to keep the budget first and foremost in your mind during planning.
At the end of it all, your wedding day will be fantastic because you are marrying the love of your life and you’ll look amazing doing so! Happy (and calm) planning!

@eliseemma: Do you have a budget spreadsheet? It helps to see what you’ve already paid for, what’s budgeted (so you can resist temptation!) and how much is still due and when! It definitely helps keep me organized and less stressed.

@eliseemma: You are not the only one, and it gets worse as the date nears. 4 weeks for me, and I’m going nuts. UGH.

Staying on budget isn’t bad, I’m doing pretty well with that. 🙂
Just piecing it all together is the stressful part.. Hehe
