- Wedding: September 2012
This will be my official first post!! I have been looking around for some time. Anywho, My Fiance and I are already in a LDR prior to our engagement 1/26/11. He is currently in Kuwait after a long time in Iraq…home for good this January. We are planning to get married September 2012. I reside in FL…he resides in GA. The wedding will be in GA since I am relocating there (yes, making this even more of a challenge). We knew that planning would be difficult, and when he was home last time, he was able to do a lot of research and provide input. Now he is back in Kuwait working and I feel like I am solo in this planning process. I am spending countless hours naturally trying to narrow down venues to visit, etc…I am going to GA this weekend to look at a few venues, and if he were the type to just tell me to do whatever I wanted, this would be much easier, but he wants to see and have input on everything, which can make this difficult. Communication has been hit or miss with his moving around..so when I find something or have a question or suggestion, I email him. He is not always able to retrieve it and respond in a timely manner=frustrating. I am trying not to complain and do what I can on top of my already full plate. Overall, know that I am just venting…I am trying not to frustrate the both of us by bringing it up to him so much, because if he were at home, he would be trying to get it planned himself and I wouldn’t have that 🙂 So for those in LDR planning a wedding….how involved is your SO in the planning of the wedding/honeymoon, etc.?? I know my situation is different with him being in Kuwait…but in general….do you feel as though you are doing it all, especially if you preferred to plan together?
Thanks for reading…I know it’s a ramble..but hopefully someone has some insight and could understand my legit frustration…or my self-created, lack of understanding frustration…haha…whichever it is…I’m still frustrated…
