I don’t know what it is but it seems like I am lacking as a bride. When I see e-pics or wedding pics or read these boards and see DIY projects that look amazing I feel inadequate. As if I am not the bride type but I want to be
I don’t feel pretty enough or crafty enough or thin enough. Its way stupid huh. I know this wedding will come together just fine but still I want to feel put together.
Anyone else feel like the fat girl in the poplular girl party?

I think that we all do at times. I am totally lacking in the DIY and there are always going to be little insecurities that creep up on us all. I try to remember that the only thing that matters is that is the wedding that the FH and I want and that we put it all together ourselves. Most guests are clueless about the wedding industry so the only ones that we have to impress is ourselves.

LOL I am in the same boat. I am twice the age and twice the size and half as poor as most of the ladies on this board. But, I figure we are all sharing the same experience and I really haven’t felt to bad about it. Once in a while someone will post something like “Let’s see your 3 ct diamond Ring!” and I’ll just roll my eyes and ignore it. I like that we have the individual boards for the full-figured, and the 40 something and the Encore brides-all of which I do fit in, quite nicely. I think we have more in common than we do in difference when it comes down to it.
