more thana few blessings here.  wedding planning has helped me actually take a good look at myself and sort through a lot of my personal issues.

it’s also helped me to be more considerate of the needs of others – ie guests, partner, families.

it’s helped me grow a lot as a person strange as that sounds.

Nothing but good things on wedding planning.  There were some suggestions from parents that raised my eyebrows but it was brushed aside.  Provided a good chuckle, though.  

Totally enjoying it!  I’m more laid back but my mom-in-law is bursting w/ super excited sunshine she can hardly contain herself!  She even wanted to have “save the dates” for our engagement party.  Fiance & I had to tell her that you only do that for weddings.  Sooo adorable of her.  My fiance is her only child so I think she loves having a “daughter” to fawn over.  I looove her!  She is more giggly excited that my mom re: wedding planning.  =)

I have learnt to

  1. Manage people alot better professionally and personally, stretch my creativity.
  2. If i see something I like i go, I can do that… I never had that attitude before.
  3. It has made me see FH in a differant light and sometimes how differant we are. However it made us work on our communication, and I have learnt that I am now the queen of excel and budgeting. WHO KNEW!
  4. on the downside.. all I think about most the times is wedding stuff and sometimes I very much hate it.
  5. I hate how we used to live quite uninhibited with finances and still be stable, but now i count every penny that goes in and out. It makes me stress to the max sometimes.
  6. I do not like being unorganised or suprised.. in fact.. i hate suprises most of the time. I like to be prepared.. wedding planning has reiterated that more.. and Im less with the ‘flow’

However Im working on the negatives…. it will become a positive I think. 🙂

I’m with @wildstyle. . .I’ve been able to grow as a person through this process. But it has superduper taken over my life at this point.

It’s helped our relationship – FH is learning how to talk me off the ledge (so to speak) when I start to crack under the pressure. And I’m learning how to not freak out immediately because things generally work themselves out.

I’ll admit, for some time I was not happy planning the wedding.  I was so upset not finding a dress that fit me I was afraid I couldn’t get married.  Silly, I know, but I’m a curvy gal and nothing seemed to work and I was just so self-conscious. I have a dress now and low and behold everything is fine.  I do think about wedding stuff a lot and while I enjoy I’m going to be glad when I’m not checking every blog I have on my Google Reader for the latest.  If this gives you any indication of how much I think about it, last night my Fiance woke up to me talking in my sleep–which is not uncommon but also not on a regular basis–and I was clearly saying, “No, we need appetizers.”  Apparently he asked what I was talking about and I repeated myself.  Then he realized I was just talking in my sleep and told me to go back to sleep and I again told him, “No, we need appetizers.” 

HAHA

Generally I’ve been having the best time planning our wedding! That being said, I did find myself saying “I can’t believe that we’re still being marked as spam for our reception liaison!” the other day and caught myself and thought “wow, that’s a bit weird”. I manage people and events for a living though so I guess I’m happy to let the small things roll off my back.

I haven’t gone all bridezilla (yet?), but I did cry for like 3 hours the other morning about stuff that I really can’t change. Luckily, Fiance is really great about it and rode out the storm with me.

I’m really enjoying wedding planning. The one thing that has stressed me out is the guest list, but that seems to be taking care of itself. But then, things usually do.

It’s one of the things that I’ve learned living in the theater….the show must go on, and when it does you’ll find yourself on the other side of the night with the world still turning.

I have learned to do the opposite of be a Bridezilla.. I have learned to LET GO. It has been a beautiful creative process for me..

I keep thinking, no one will remember the little things we all fret about when it’s said and done.

For our wedding, they will remember the unique location, the amazing food, the great company, and the genuineness of it all..

It has all been falling into place very well.

 I have learned a lot about money management! We were terrible at saving money before, we lived really month to month, and now we have saved 17k for a wedding! It also made me realize how selfish/ giving some people are. People who I expected to be really supportive and excited have let me down, and some people have really stepped up to be so helpful and amazing! I think it really made Fiance see how crazy his mom is too, and how she only does things when they are about her, and how un supportive his family is. He has realized how excited my family is to welcome him too, they all really like him!

I have only been planning for about a month, but I have already pulled the “vegas” card at least 5 times! Sealed

 

I am the kind of person who HAS to have everything planned out, HAS to know what is going to happen, how it’s going to happen, and when. Getting the run around from reception halls and having a heck of a time finding a Catholic church that will marry us in Tucson since we are not parishoners in the city, has been driving me up the wall. I don’t go “Bridezilla” as much as I just get fed up with being frustrated.
