“Why stress about bridesmaid dresses! Its easier to let them pick them out themselves!”

“Spend money on invites? I could just print them myself!”

“Hire a planner? What a waste of money” (I don’t have a planner, but really it would make my life so much easier)

“I won’t do THAT when I’m planning MY wedding!”

With any friend at any stage of my life… “Of course we’ll be at each other’s weddings! Of course we’ll be BM” etc etc… It was just ironic to me when the time actually came to select Bridesmaid or Best Man and to do a guest list… Not all of those friends were on that list 🙂

“Cakes are overdone. I’m gonna have petit-fours on a pretty tower!”

“My veil is gonna be 20 feet long and hand beaded all down the back!” (PFSHT!!)

“Our guest list is gonna be tiny. Like, no more than 90.” (it was 180)

I *know* there was more. Lol.

I will never cry over a wedding related situation…

I’ve cried. Once. But in my defense, it wasn’t irrational. It was a very justified outburst. 😉

“Invitations are one area that I don’t care about, nobody remembers them and they just get thrown away.” 

“I refuse to be meeting people for the first time on my wedding day, so if Fiance or I have never met them we are definitely not putting them on the guest list!”

“I’m gonna elope.”

Were having a 150+ person full blown wedding. In my defense, I had no idea my parents and Future In-Laws would want to pay for me to have a wedding. And I’m happy with the large “real” wedding.

“I can’t wait to get married on the beach in FL in that stunning Nicole Miller black and white sheath dress and have a clam bake for the rehearsal dinner!”

– I’m now in a botanical garden here at home, in a white dress, eating at Spaghetti Warehouse.

“Black and white damask with lime green is my jam”

– Nope.  Overdone, IMO.  Grey yellow and orange it is.

“I’m doing a dessert bar!!!!!!  YAY!”

– Overruled.  We’re having cake.

Sigh.

“I can make my own veil! There’s no way I’d buy one”

“Who pays for makeup? I’d do my own, no one would notice”

” Who pays $2000+ for a photographer? I’d never pay that much – I could get a friend to do it”  Yeah right.
