Everyone putting in their two cents and not being understanding when I don’t want to do it their way.

Aww you poor thing! I’m having SOME fun with invitations…and I emphasize some fun!

My least favorite part so far is picking the food. I know…it should be easy. But I’m only doing a cocktail party, and have gone from doing appetizers during our pictures, and a full dessert bar during the reception, to now just having heavy hors d’oeuvres,  cake and petit fours. 

For the life of me, I just can’t decide what I want to do for food!!!

Picking a Maid/Matron of Honor…it has been months and I can’t make a decision.

I feel like I’ve been fairly lucky so far. No major disasters or terribleness, which is great because I was dreading the whole process. But I really don’t like that for every decision, even the easy ones, there are about 438294783925 people who need to be consulted – my SO, 3 sets of parents, all the vendors, etc etc.  It’s not that anyone has given me grief or disagreed on anything important, but it’s so inefficient! I feel like if it was just me and a single credit card I could plan this effing thing in about 20 minutes.

SPENDING MONEY, ha.

But if you mean specific aspects of the wedding…anything related to decorations.  I want the house and yard to look pretty, but I don’t know or care how.  And believe it or not, it turns out that it’s a lot harder to make decisions when you don’t care that much than when you do!  It’s just not something I want to spend my time on, but I have to if I don’t want everything to look ugly and boring. 😛

@sparks:

A good pick for Maid/Matron of Honor would be someone who is organized, dependable and not at all flaky. lol.

Realizing just how much I’m spending.  Also: guest list.  I have a B list that is just as long as my A list, and its full of people I’d love to have – but combined with FI’s ever-growing list, plus the high cost for food and bev, it’s hard to make the call.

Paying for it! I really could do without that. Also, dress shopping. I’m plus size and everything is made for the skinny minis which makes the experience less than awesome for me.

Details…  Things like “birdseed or bubbles?” “When do we throw the birdseed?” “Should we do toasts right before or right after the reception (since there’s no way I’m paying $27 a bottle for house wine)?” “How should we decorate the flower girl’s basket?” “What petals should we get for the flower girl?” “How are we going to get hold of 18 small bookish-but-colorful table runners for under $100?” “How are you getting from the ceremony to the reception to the hotel?” “Which company should I buy the favors from?” “Who should grill at the rehearsal dinner?” “What will the women do at the rehearsal dinner?” “What decorations will be on the head table?” “Should families of BM/GM’s sit at the head table?” “How are we going to get 10 people and 3 high chairs at the head table all facing one direction?”  I. Don’t. Care.  I care about marrying my man and everyone being relatively comfortable (fed, seated, not having allergic reactions, not bored to death, and not seated next to sworn enemies.)
