To be honest, wedding planning is sort of depressing. Unfortunately. I am so in love with Fiance, and I can’t wait to get married, but I have a constant knot in my stomach now.

Dress shopping was fun, but tiring and stressful. 

My guest list is massive, as in 410.  This is about 250 people more than I envisioned inviting.  Fiance keeps telling me “they won’t all come” but he doesn’t get that I have to plan like they all WILL!  We found a venue after almost 7 months of searching, but the lady is spacey and is stressing me out.  I can’t find a decent caterer – I have to worry about renting tables and chairs, linens, bartenders/alcohol, decorations, etc.

I am NOT getting help from any of my 6 bridesmaids. Or Fiance to be honest.

Everything is so expensive – – I second guess every decision I have made or considered making, because I am so eager to please everybody else.

LOL – Totally took over your post.  Sorry! I needed to vent!

That’s one reason why our wedding was smaller, because I couldn’t deal with the hassle of 400 people!

I think it’s great to have these revelations early on. I always thought it was a bit silly that popular culture portrays wedding planning as this rosy time of happiness when your family and friends fawn over you and help you plan. In reality, it’s a crash course in solving disagreements with Fiance, friends, and families and navigating lots and lots of drama in your journey to the big day. 

Oh, and trying on wedding dresses always exhausts me. I have no idea why. Even the other day, when it was my Maid/Matron of Honor who was trying on dresses and I just tried my dress on once to show her, I was falling asleep afterward!
