- Wedding: April 2013
Bees, I’m so excited, we only have 10 days to go. I just can’t beleive it, it’s like a dream! Can that be right?! Yes, it can.
The good news is, while I’ve been stressing SOOO much over every little thought that came to my mind, I mean, like everything, stuff would pop into my little head at night and I’d be like OMG! how did I not think of that!? And lie there in bed and let my mind wander (bad) until I realize I’ve been laying there for hours with wedding on the brain 🙁
Other more pertinent stressors:
like getting our venue set (long story, we wanted to do our ceremony in park where he proposed, but it just didnt work no seating allowed, and no parking, logistics of going to the venue would be awful and the thought of a random frisbee or dog, or even passwerbys checking out our ceremony- since it’s a public park, just made me cringe)
trying to squeeze every penny out of our budget ( trying to keep it $5k or less)
my dress dilemmas, yes PLURAL (found out that my dream dress was an option after I already had a dress had a huge debate over that one, then I ordered it but ordered a used dress online that was a 6Petite instead of a 6-advertising flaw, but paypal didn’t see it that way so then I had to go and search for a wedding seamstress who would work with such an intriquite dress -beading flowers, etc)
doing my flowers and bout’s myself (this one was no so bad after I practiced a few times and got other bee’s thoughts)(lots of practice and trips to the grocery store to talk to their floral dept, among other florists).
figuring out seating chart or not and table assignments
trying to figure out the menu and booze optiosn vs funds availability (our venue charges an arm and a leg for booze, like $450 for a keg OUCH).
our dj quit a month from our wedding (he was a friendor so it went from being cheap to not cheap at all-but they did save the day and it might be better afterall to have a pro-wedding dj anyways).
Logistics in planning rides and 1st look and how do I get there without family tagging along, etc (I sent tons of emails for custom bids and got a decent priced limo! score!)
Where will I go the day of the wedding to get out of fiance’s hair? 🙁 I didnt realize I was kicked out, lol, we just thought of that last week that we might want space from one another.
and most recently -our photographer fiasco, I decided to let the for forces of nature decide on that one (if he is there on time, great, if not, we’ll have to make some last minute changes like cancel our 1st look or movfe cocktail hour to before ceremony etc). but what are you gonna do? (it sounds like all the other available photographers are 4xs as much as he was and we really liked his photos, his quality of photos were what sold us in the 1st place, so we’ll keep him and pray he makes it in time for our first look).
-but now I’m sort of done with all of it, I have a few simple tasks but other than that, I think the big decisions are made, I’m so close to being able to relax and let go! whoo hoo!
that in itself is so exciting to me! did anyone else feel this way? Its not like I want my wedding to be over, but …… well, kind of-I’m looking forward to the end of mental gymnastics all the time 🙂
