- Wedding: March 2012
Good morning bees… It is now 5:45am where I live and I am officially freaking out. I woke up suddenly (and nauseoulsly) 10 minutes ago with the realization… Uhhhh I’m getting married in 10 weeks… and I have so much to do!!!!!!!!! Lol
I am my own wedding planner to try to save my parents some money since they’re paying for my wedding with an IRA account they made when I was born and what’s there, is what I got. Plus they aren’t that well off financially and ideally I would like them to have $ left over. You’d think my mom would be all over that… Nope. She is completely oblivious to the budget and refuses to accept the fact that we can’t afford 120 people (just 100). You’re still discussing the guest list?!? YUP!
We got into it a bit the other day when she was *finally* giving me people’s addresses. She said a few people might not be able to make it, and in my head I was like: “Thank goodness! Maybe we will make it at around 100 ppl!!!” Until she said: “How many invitations did we buy? Because when they RSVP that they can’t go, I can invite the other ppl I wanted with the ones we have left over…”
%#%[email protected]^%$*$^*#^$!!!!!!!!! WWTTTTTTFFFFFFFFFFFF?!!!!!!!!?????????!?!?!?!??!??!
yeah…. That’s what I’m dealing with…
Meanwhile my Fiance is in his 1st year medical residency and he’s been working nights for the past 2 weeks. No help there. Also my Maid/Matron of Honor has had animal emergency after animal emergency and has bee uber busy with her own stuff. For months she’s been saying gimme a list I’ll help you out… So I did. No help there. And I don’t know how… I went into a blissfull oblivious daze about a month and a half ago when I realized the wedding planning was becoming too stressfull for me and I went from super productive to doing absolutely nothing! Well that ended quite abruptly a few minutes ago… OMG I got soooooooo much to do!!!!!!
I have a list that’s 5 pages long that I made pre-trance and I just printed it out and almost threw up…
Amongst other things:
Research and book honeymoon hotels
buy remaining honeymoon flights
Update website for RSVPs
Try on dress for 1st time!!!!!
Oreder veil and jewelry
Trial w decorator
Do bridesmaid dress alterations
Choose readings and meet w pastor
Choose final menu
Pay rental stuff and bar stuff at location
Have trial hair and makeup
Buy photobooth wall final materials

I gotta pace myself… Any words of encouragement? Support? Freaking out relating?
