Had my first mini breakdown cry yesterday…why do I feel like there are more to come? Does anyone feel overwhelmed with planning? Is it worth it to just pay for a planner? I feel like I would still want to be in control even if I had a planner…but there just seem to be SO many details to a wedding and it is a lot for one person (me) to keep track of!
I have zero help, my mom is sick, my Future Mother-In-Law is back in school, my Future Sister-In-Law is like 8 months pregnant. My Fiance can barely get addresses let alone give him the task to book our DJ. I found out that Charleston is having their biggest event in the city moved to our weekend so who knows if guests can get hotel rooms. The Hotels are not accepting blocks due to the race. I have had to speak to five different florists, have to find a new ceremony location since it was at a local park that is now going to be overrun from the crowds of the event. BLEH
Any bees just wishing they maybe had an extra hand?

@Tiffner: Yes. I’m always bugging my fiance to help me with things like getting back to emails wiith vendors and stuff. Apparently these planning breakdowns are normal, I’ve had a few myself. Fiance could help more with getting the addresses but at the same time people don’t always get back to him so he can’t help that…
A Charleston wedding sounds like a dream though, but I know it’s probably high stress.

I am feeling the pressure but it hasn’t gotten overwhelming yet. I have been doing the planning myself because, well, I am a control freak and I can’t trust fi to follow through. He does not really care about the little minor details like I do and as for major vendors, he’s not as invested as I am in searching for the ones with the best prices.
It’s now come down to all the small things I have to do. I still am missing 2-3 major vendors plus a ceremony site but i know it’ll come together soon.

I’m glad to know it isn’t just my fiance! I agree it is more than just googling closest wedding dj. I have gotten more quotes from vendors then I know what to do with! I know it will all come together (hopefully lol) but goodness I guess I just didn’t know what to expect. It is just crazy because I have never really planned a party before and then you have your wedding which is the biggest one of your life, no Pressure! lol
Thank you bees for not making me feel like a crazy person and that I’m not alone 🙂
