Ok- I would like to think I am genuinely a positive person- however I have had some venting post on here where I admit the wedding stress is getting to me. However, this is just a really exciting time for me…for all of us Bees 🙂 I LOVE being a bride! I love how excited people get whenever they see me and ask how the planning is coming along. It is such a great reassurance of all the support and happiness friends and family have for us. Not going to lie- I can be a diva- and I love the attention that comes along with being a bride. There I said it! I am an entertainer by proffession so it is only natural that I love the spotlight. ( I know Mrs.PumpkinPie can agree with that 😉 I love trying on dresses and going to bridal expos even though I know I am never going to use the vendors there. (I JUST WANT THE FREE CAKE!)
Most of all- I love the anticipation I have everyday- counting down to the big day…the most important day of my life yet to come. I love day dreaming about the moment when I start walking from the back of the aisle to my groom. My smiling, loving, equally anxious groom, waiting for me to take is hand for the rest of my life. I just can’t wait! Really, when that moment comes, all this stress that we are going through will be totally worth it. After that moment- we probably won’t care what color of sashes are on our chairs, what types of flowers are on our centerpieces, or if we even messed up the seating chart. We have one ingredient to make our days special- love. The rest is just icing on the cake 🙂
….however I really love icing so in the mean time- I will keep on BEEING a crazy bride, caring about every single detail that comes with a wedding, but knowing my main joy is spedning the rest of my life with an amazing person!
What do you LOVE most about being a bride???!!!!

This might sound weird, but I like the anticipation of my title upgrade to “wifey” once we’re hitched. I was the girlfriend for a loooong time (7 yrs.), then fiancee for a loooong time (1.5 yrs). I’m so ready to be The Wife lol.

haha me too!!! I sometimes find myself referring to him as “my husband” when talking to people I don’t know- it just seems easier and its kinda fun to say. I don’t think it sounds weird at all 🙂

The anticipation of it all. Oh, and I’m looking forward to that amazing honeymoon.

I know this might sound crazy but… even though it is pretty stressful, I actually enjoy this wedding planning phase. My Fiance is not THAT involved but he does come with me to talk to the vendors (except to my hair & make up vendor which I told him that I could go alone) and to the store to shop around for DIY decor. It feels like we are working together as a team and it feels nice!

I’m enjoying the fact that everyone is walking on egg shells around me because they are afraid of upsetting me because I’m “so stressed with the wedding”. Lol.

So, it’s been a while, but the best part about being a bride is everyone fussing over you. It definitely is nerve wracking having all eyes on you all the time, but everyone is there to serve you which is pretty awesome. All you have to do is ask someone to do somethng and they’re off running! It’s your one day to have everyone and their mother fall all over themselves to help you :o)

Seeing the dynamics of the people around us. This can be good and this can be bad, but it’s my favourite because true colours are shining all over the place right now. ROFL

everything coming together and my dress! Honeymoon too! Also, knowing my whole family is excited and they talk about what they are going to wear…even my uncles and older family members! They discuss their outfits and it just makes me feel special.

My favorite part of being a bride is planning the wedding. We are doing a Destination Wedding, and it is pretty much stress free (just some issues with a few of our guests has proven quite stressful), but overall it’s so fun! I actually am getting a little anxiety bc our wedding is so close. I don’t know what I will do when it’s over!! :((( haha.
I would have to say I have been a pretty laid back bride during all of the planning. I think that is what is making it so much fun.

I love the creative component! We are also doing a Destination Wedding, so a lot of my time is spent trying to come up with portable, useful and fun favours, decorative touches and personal touches. We’re doing a lot of DIY projects as a result…STD, Invitations, Caketopper, Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts, Out of Town bags…I’m having so much fun getting creative with these!

I would say the countdown is one of my faves. I’d rather look forward to it than looking back at it. 2nd is the attention you get from potential vendors. I get emails/phone calls all day from them and when you go to a bridal show, they really know how to cater to you! I also love the excuse of being able to obsess with wedding porn. I look at it all day online or in mags. This is my first actual wedding (first was just a courthouse with 4 ppl and I didn’t even wear a dress!!!) also the first wedding that my mother’s side of the family is having so it’s a pretty big deal for them.
