I thought that I would be a total bridezilla…

It was surprising that I am just same old me with a really fun party to plan. 

I plan my companies trade shows… about 15 a year and a party a year for about 400 people… This wedding is a piece of cake 🙂  Wedding Cake 😉

I think I’ve chilled out a bit actually, saying that It’s getting harder to cut down on my cigarette intake LOL.!

My only bridezillaish moment came when we found out 2 months AFTER we put the deposit to hold our date at the venue that they had a food & bev minimum that was double what we planned on spending.

I think i was quite justified in my moment

for me, it’s not actually made me into a “bridezilla”…but i know my husband (as will I) be SO happy when the wedding is over – mainly because I’VE been planning this wedding for 2 of the 3 years we’ve been together and it’s ALL that’s on my mind – whereas he wishes I focused on other things…and i will once the wedding is over. only 5 more weeks!!!!!!!!

More like what has it done to your relationship… I hate this planning process. I am not enjoying it at all. Possibly because this is my THIRD time trying to arrange our wedding, to accomodate the FI’s family. It is a huge stress on us. We are constantly trying to sort everything out and it seems it is all we talk about. We just cancelled our second attempt at it. I was planning on a taking a week or two until I started arranging the next one. Then the Future Father-In-Law says, “You haven’t booked the church yet??”” I felt like, -first, screaming, then saying, “I just cancelled all of the time consuming bookings I made, because you and the Future Mother-In-Law told us after we booked, that you couldn’t make it. Excuse me for not Jumping for Joy now that I get to start from scratch with the planning in an entirely new city!! Grrrr!” Not to mention the Fiance can’t handle hearing the new plans for the third attempt at a wedding. We all know how men are about details. Disinterested unless it is about their hobbies!

Anyway, very sorry to hijack your thread with my vent.. I had to get that out, apparently… excuse me.

I really got carried away with wedding planning. It’s making me happy 🙂

I never had a bridezilla-moment. But I planned my wedding for 13 months now, so I had a lot of time and no stress, yet.

But who knows what’s going to happen within the last 2 months?!?

For me, wedding planning has been really positive – it’s my fun thing that I use to distract myself from when work/living with the parents/everything gets a bit much! Usually I’m a leave-everything-til-the-last-minute kinda gal but I’ve been so into the wedding planning that I haven’t had a big freak out yet cos I’m bizarrely organised! LOL It’s also been really good cos it’s made me bit a bit more assertive in a mellow kinda way. I’ve just taken to telling people what we’re doing, rather than asking them what they think about it. I’ve loved every minute of it and I think it’s been really good for me to have a little fun project to balance everything else out.
