I am a natural worrier. I worry about lots of things: I worry if I’ve upset people, I worry if I’m doing ok at my job etc. Fiance is very confident and much more laid back.
We were talking about the wedding today and I broke down. I’m self funding the wedding as I’m the only one of the two of us that has disposable income. The pressure is clearly getting to me. I feel major pressure to keep within budget. I love the thought of having some money left over since we want to TTC soon after the wedding. But through the wedding planning process I have fallen in love with so many things – beautiful invites, stunning wedding cake… Fiance wants me to have the wedding of my dreams and so tells me to get it all and forget about the money. I explained that I needed someone to help rein in my spending. I know he is being nice telling me this but I need someone to tell me it’s ok to compromise, that I won’t regret it looking back on the wedding. Anyway, I ended up crying a lot, getting in a bit of a state. I explained I wasn’t enjoying planning the wedding very much lately so I am taking some time off. Lets see how long I can stay off WB… 🙁
