Wedding planning does suck in my opinion. I hate it and my fiancé knows it. He’s also not a big fan of it either, but we sit down and work together and if things get too stressful or heated, we take a break and come back to it afterwards. What I find helps is doing one thing at a time. Right now, we are focused on finding a photographer. We are not talking about any other aspects of our wedding. It helps me keep my composure as I don’t have 10 million things to think or worry about. 

Take your time and take a breather once in a while. Going back into it rejuvenated gives you more of chance to be happy and excited about what you are doing. 

Good luck!!

When we first started planning, it was fun. Then I hated it. Now it’s so close that I gotta go through with it lol. It’s going to happen whether I love it or hate it!!!

Wedding planning sucks furry cat balls. Its something that I accept has to be done but that doesn’t mean I like it nor does it mean I no longer feel it sucks. I agree with previous suggestions to take breaks, not focus on this 24/7 and give yourself a breather when necessary. Now that I’ve tackled the venue, photographer and my dress I don’t plan to seriously think about anything wedding related until January or later. If your Fiance is helpful I’m sure that will make things easier, mine only wants to know how much he has to pay and what time to show up. :p Good luck

Great, you found a venue! 

Venue hunting is the absolute worst! I had my heart set on this french style castle, Fiance wants a black tie blowout in Atlanta. Both locations are amazing however I have always wanted to get married in my hometown.

Like you, if my dream venue hasn’t returned my emails by the end of the day, I am taking that as a sign that it isn’t meant to be.

It absolutely does suck lol.

You will come up against brick walls, but don’t stress. It took me months to find a reception venue, I had totally lost hope. I was spinning out, even started a thread on here. Then I found exactly what I wanted. 

Now im stuck on music. I want a covers band, a jazz group, and a string group. Can’t find a single thing I like. It will work out though, we just have to keep looking. 

Also, I have recently sat down with my Fiance and we jotted down what needed to be done. Then we split the tasks. He has his responsibilities, and I have mine. Nothing will be bought or booked without running it by the other person of course, but it takes some pressure off knowing I don’t have to handle everything. I never wanted a wedding, so my condition is that he helps.

I definitely had a teary, let’s-just-elope moment when we first started planning. But once you get the venue out of the way, and maybe caterer as well, the rest becomes easy. Without them, there’s too much what-if. Those set the tone for the rest of the wedding and budget. It also gives you the day, so it’s easy to start getting the rest of your vendors.

I’ve loved wedding planning since then. I’d just say be thoughtful, do some research, and when you make your choice, never look back.

It’s going to be fun! Best of luck!

I think wedding planning just isn’t that fun – it’s all logistics and tedious details and too many opinions, even with the small-ish wedding we’re having. Certain parts of it I’ve enjoyed (shopping for my dress and picking beautiful flowers for my bouquet), but the rest just feels like work. I can’t wait to marry Mr. Wanderful, but I sure am ready for the wedding planning to be DONE so we can have our normal lives back!
