My dress!  It’s being custom made and I am sooo nervous I’m not going to love it.  I won’t have enough time/$$ to order another one if I don’t like it so I’m crossing my fingers!  They already made it once and didn’t like it at all so I’m hoping the second attempt will be much better.

The timing! We’re having a luncheon, so trying to figure out time for pictures and travel where people aren’t eating at 2pm is so frustrating! And our ceremony site is 30 minutes away from our reception site, so we have to budget for that, too!

Biggest headache so far? Everything! LOL

 

My 2 MoH’s are fine (one’s a best friend, one’s my mom) aren’t a problem. We more or less nailed down the wedding venue, and are working on ideas for everything else. My biggest issue is that I’m more inclined to have awesome ideas (at 2am) when everyone else is normally sleeping. Oh, and as for the food budget, I’m about to just consider ordering pizzas or a barbecue catering deal! πŸ˜‰

Mine is definitely all the DIY projects that I took on for no reason other than to have fun and put a personal touch on things…but I’m not a great crafter and it takes a lot of time.  It is fun but not when there’s a deadline and a quantity of more than 1.  I’m good at making 1, when you need 50 of the same thing then I just want to quit πŸ™ and often do πŸ™‚

rIGHT Now…it’s guest list. I have to keep my wedding to 100 people…any my Fiance wants to add…I restricted him and told him he only has 50 spots…use them wisely…lol. I on the other hand can cut ppl left right and centre…lol

My dress choice is giving me issues…I had dress regret once (still selling it…although I had quite a few interested potential buyers) , but I need to choose my dress like NOW…my wedding is in June…not much time. 

Then there is the budget…we are lucky…my Fiance family is actually willing to help with that…actually I know the budget will work out…we might go over a bit but I feel comfortable with that. 

My DIY projects are a sense of relief to me…something I can control…I say that is a stress reliever

@mjwyatt84:  I would just tell your guest that they cannot bring a plus 1…simple as that. Do not go over budget just to accomodate people and their selfish ways…not worth it. 

One person told me their plus one is coming…I let it slide because their plus one was already invited….if they were not…I would just tell them..no can do!

Just PICKING my Maid/Matron of Honor is killing me! I have one sis, one friend, and one Future Sister-In-Law as my bridesmaids. Sis figured that since we’re related, that gave her the automatic in, but I’m not so sure as I want her to be since she’s constantly going through all kinds of drama, drinking, etc. I think I want my friend but haven’t gotten around to asking in fear of hurting my sis’s feelings. Ugh! So frustrating.

I’m still waiting on the drama. *knocks wood*

Honestly, the hardest part for me is figuring out a rehearsal dinner restaurant. My father is a vegetarian, both of my parents keep kosher and my FI’s parents are both VERY picky eaters. Our venue for the wedding is Italian or that’d be the easiest option. Finding someplace cheapish, varied, nearby AND with enough room for a large party has been a headache!

Other people expectations and demands. Especially when they are not paying for it

We have most of our major things booked except for dj. I gave that job to the fiancé and he hasn’t called anyone yet…might have to take it into my own hands…

@Itsallcomingtogether:  I literally have the exact same group of girls! haha I feel your pain girl!!! why can’t they just be excited & helpful when asked? too much to ask? i think not… πŸ˜‰ at the end of the day their role is minimal in the whole process- all that matters is you & future hubs!

My FI! LOL…he initially said he didn’t care about anything-AWESOME!  Until…I said I wanted the colors to be dark purple, dusty rose, and cream…nope.  He said that was his ex’s favorite color…ugh!  Well, that was before i got my dress, whih is champagne, ice blue, and silver so those colors are out now anyway…but it still caught me off guard since he said everything was up to me.  I’ve since changed colors to champagne, blush, & cream.  πŸ™‚

AND…he thinks we shouldn’t have favors???!  What?!  He said its a waste of money and most people won’t even keep them anyway-I’ve since read this on a few boards here so that may not be an issue. 

Huh…a lot of caring for someone that said everything was up to me…I’m such a control freak lol! πŸ˜‰
