I’m so sorry for your loss <3 Losing a Mom is really hard 🙁
I’m really impressed to see how many of you aren’t really experiencing a lot of stress! Obviously not everyone is that lucky–There’s a lot of variety of stressors. I’m actually surprised with how few have chosen bridal parties as their main stressor, only because there are always so many boards asking for advice about difficult bridal party members 😛

Our only stress was finding a venue. We made the silly mistake of looking before a guest list was completed. I estimated we’d have 125 people so I looked at places that held up to 150….then we sat down and realized we planned to invite 225. Back to the drawing board!
Fortunately, with that adjustment we found a place that had all the things we wanted that the smaller places lacked.
Funny thing, we ended up having 130 guests (yay for winter weddings and people concerned about traveling (huge snowstorm on the day of the rehearsal so I guess they had good reason to worry!!)) and our minimum was 160 so we were able to extend the cocktail hour, add extra food, so on. It all worked out perfectly!

- Wedding: March 2016 - Aldea at Tlaquepaque
The bridesmaids dresses! Oh my gosh I feel like everything is booked, ready to go except I have 7 girls with 7 different opinions and different body types and I don’t want to make them feel uncomfortable by any means on the wedding day. Finding a style to match all of them is so hard!

The most stressful has been determining the guest list and budget. Our guest list is very up in the air still, a year away.

oh wow! That’s a lot of girls to please. Are they picking their own style or are you hoping to find one dress for all the girls?

Picking a date and narrowing our guest list have been the biggest hurdles.

It’s so hard to know what to expect with the weather, hey? Glad it all worked out!

To be honest, the most difficult part was trying to get hubby involved. I mean, he added his opinion where it counted – definitely – but little things like what songs to play at the reception or what to buy our photographer (close friend) as payment for his services he really wasn’t fussed about. He was amazing when I had my meltdowns, though.

Its been 2 things for us Fiance and his groomsman had a falling out since he asked him, but he doesn’t want to ask him to step down because he feels like it might be the complete end to the friendship then, but the arn’t speaking terms now and I really don’t want him to be there just out of obligation..also I hired a vendor that is a long time family friend who is doing a pretty terrible job so far but I don’t feel like I can fire them. Otherwise its been alright, some Fiance family drama but we would have had that w/o the wedding 😉

I would say the most stressfull part so far would be the guest list.

The GUESTS. OMG, getting them to RSVP, making sure the out-of-town guests had places to stay, and ever-changing info on who was mad at whom and adjusting the seating charts accordingly was like herding cats.

I picked “Other”. Writing my own vows. It is by far the most important thing about the wedding and the fear of not getting them perfect and saying what I mean to say is stressful. Everything else will fall into place but that is most important.

- Wedding: September 2017 - Mississauga Convention Centre
For us so far has been tentatively getting a seating plan arranged. We have our head tables planned, but immediate family members not in the bridal party are hard to seat
