Lol sounds like overthinking / looking for trouble when there is none! There’s no need to prepare for disagreement when it’s not even on the horizon yet!

for what it’s worth, we’re down to 2 months before the wedding, haven’t had any major disagreement on anything and always came to agreement easily if we have different views on something. If that’s how you are as a couple usually, a wedding shouldn’t be any different.

also I have not found wedding planning stressful AT ALL. I’m keeping things simple and as minimal as possible, so that I don’t have to worry about or think about anything on the day other than just enjoy.

We had 0 disagreements before the wedding and everything went smoothly minus one decor hiccup 7 weeks before the day. We solved it, got a new vendor, and moved on. Wedding planning was smooth and completely stress free but I’m a very chill person.

We are 6 months away. Almost everything is sorted. I have no idea how others manage to make such a fuss! It has been fun and stress free. 

Mind you I’ve not gone completely mad and decided to interview calligraphers or anything. I do think some people are quite insane over the whole wedding thing.

Hopefully I won’t be back here eating my words…. 

We have rather a lot of other stuff happening too – daughter to uni, son to army, SO has to move and get a new job. It’s quite the year. Bring it on!

When I got married everything was simple and straight forward. There were times when a lot of stuff needed sorting around the same time so it was quite hectic but otherwise fine. The only stress we had was about name changing

I think there is a really dangerous myth around wedding planning being stressful and disagreements being natural with your fiance.  I think if you are well suited to marriage and are on the same page then wedding planning should be easy and stress free.

dreamer925 :  I had this worry too that I was forgetting something and touch-wood, with 29 days left I don’t think I have, but there is always time for something to go wrong. I love being organised so did a lot of work ahead of time so I didn’t get stressed by it – you sound the same.

Honestly, it all came together quite easily for us too.  It wasn’t until the last couple months that I started to tire of planning.  Then again, we also bought a house and were living in it while renovating it, mostly ourselves, so that surely played a factor.

The couple weeks before I got a little panicked, I kind of missed a few minor details but we pulled it together!  i.e. seating chart was literally finished the night before with help from my bridal party

We kept things simple though, so that made it easier.. at the end of the day the main things were: each other, good food, open bar, great music and photography.  The rest was just gravy!
