- Wedding: September 2012
I got engaged Xmas eve 2010. Getting married this fall. I thought I would have plenty of time of prepare…I even started thinking about the wedding way before we were engaged (we’re been together 10+ yrs). Therefore, with so much time, I thought planning would be a breeze; that I’d have so much support. Quite the opposite! With so much time, the wedding has become bigger and bigger and 2x as much as we intended to spend due to the our guest list growing (300 guests). I’ve become moody due to the money I have to somehow come up with as Future In-Laws and my own family continue to add to my guest list. I have a Bridesmaid or Best Man who has done jack, and not that I’ve asked for anything but an occassional call would be nice. I even bought the dresses! I emailed asking who is staying at the hotel the night before…no response from this Bridesmaid or Best Man, in fact I texted her about it the next day and it was one word: Staying…and then later another text from her saying, “well, what do we owe you?” Seriously? First off, I’m paying, second…seriously? How rude!
Ppl are calling my wedding party asking why they haven’t received their std….my MOM even asked if I could change the reception time bc my aunts didn’t want to drive home late! I said no kids at the wedding it’s on our website and on the invitations, but eh, who cares what I want, i’m just the bride paying for 1/2 this wedding myself!
I vent to ppl and I shouldn’t bc I look terrible but I can’t hold it in. My face is breaking out from stress! I never get pimples! I’m making snarky comments on everything just bc I feel miserable. I never thought I’d become a bridezilla but she’s appeared and as ugly as ever. And I’m sad…I thought planning would be exciting and fun but I feel like I do nothing but appease, accomodate, etc! I absolutely cannot wait for this to end.
Anyone else feeling terrible? Please vent…I hope I’m not alone.
