I think getting the music together and finding the money for what we wanted to include in our vision were the hardest, but overall I have loved planning everything for our wedding.

There’s no one particular thing stressing me out (so far), but it never ceases to amaze/annoy me how many people need to be consulted for any one decision. I’ve posted something to this extent before, but anyway…

It’s hilarious that everyone says “It’s YOUR day!” and “It’s all up to you!” 

No, no it’s not at all.

I don’t think I’ve made a single decision unilaterally. If it was just Dictator Beluga and Unlimited Cashmonies, I could have this thing planned in like, a day.

Ultimately, it’s not that big a deal. I have chosen to laugh at it. 😀

The hardest part for me has been getting the DIY projects actually done! I’ve been getting better as the engagement goes on but there just isn’t enough time in the day to do everything that I want to do! It’s also been hard to let go of projects when I prioritize.

I stressed over the guest list!  Our venue said they have a limit of 200 people and I was like, “We don’t even KNOW 200 people!” but between us, my parents, and his mother, we’re at like 197 and I had to cut some.  I’m beginning to be at peace with it, but that definitely gave me some issues 🙂

Money.

Also, I never figured that I’d have to constantly defend my ideas/wants or put my foot down so much. That is increadibly stressful.

His family! They want to be part of planning everything, but do not want to pay for anything other than the rehearsal.

The worse part of planning for me was… planning. Baha! But seriously, I hate planning. I guess the reason why I hate it, is that it involves other people: i.e. my mom and Future Mother-In-Law. If I didn’t have to include them in every decision everything would already be done and done already! But I feel they deserve to be included so, slow pokes here we go 🙂

The guest list was challenging and I’m also having a hard time with bridesmaid dresses. I think we’ll finally be ordering them this week, fingers crossed!

The bridesmaids. I only picked super close people who are there with me through everything. Except when I’m getting married. People I would have had to tell that I need some personal space too because they are so close to me are now nowhere to be find once they became my bridesmaid.

Would it be wrong of me to say my mother?  She’s being a huge…you know what.  Telling me my ideas are wrong and that she’ll “fix it”

Can I lock her in a closet until September?

Planning a wedding in my hometown from 3,000 miles away. Picking the vendors was easy, but making the small decisions, like my dress, and decorations, without my mom, sisters and best friend is not fun at all and super stressful!
