My mom passed away so it’s doing the planning alone! At least my friends are helping as much as possible! I know I will also be struggling with the seating chart! And money.. Yes money sucks!

FutureWifey2016:  Come on here and share your wedding! I can’t speak for everyone else, but I love reading how brides are planning their weddings! I know it would mean more to you if you could share all the details with your family, but every woman that posts on these boards is looking for advice or sharing the good/bad things that are going on in their lives, so if you need anywhere to let it all out, do it here!

I hate actually planning the wedding. If I had the money I would have hired a wedding planner. Working and going to school full time while planning a wedding is absolutely stressful. I have given a lot of things to my mom to handle.

FutureWifey2016:  Well atleast now you have extended friends you can share your information with. I haven’t been on here for long, but I’ve gathered so much information from these ladies whether it’s been good or bad, but it’s been fun sharing my information and even being able to vent when I need to vent and having them to listen when my husband won’t . I also love being able to share my ideas and getting help with ideas that I am stuck on from people that have been there and done that. You never know, you might have done somethinig that will help someone else out at the end.

I hate trying to get my husband to do his invitation list. I’ve been after him for over a month now to give me his list and only got half of it. I’m ready to throw in the towel and tell him that if I don’t have it by this weekend then who ever don’t receive a save the date won’t receive an invitation as well.

So far the money is the toughest part for me. I feel we are budgeting pretty well but sometimes I have to wonder if it will all be worth it!

I enjoy planning things for the most part, so I don’t mind doing the research and whatnot, but I anticipate really hating the invitations/RSVP part.

Finding a venue was my least favorite part.  Since every venue includes and excludes so many different variables, it was nearly impossible for me to do price comparisons.

For example, venue A was pricier overall but they included nearly everything like catering, cake, tables, linens, bar ware, silverware, centerpieces, DOC, etc…

Venue B was cheaper and inluded the ceremony fee in the price, but they didn’t include a caterer, linens, chairs, or tables, and charged extra for cake cutting services, and bartenders.  

Venue C was in between price wise, but it was also the furthest away from the airport and the closest hotel was 12 miles away, which meant that we would have to pay extra for transportation.

All of this lead to researching and getting quotes from so many different kinds of vendors and it was beyond frustrating!

I haven’t enjoyed much of it, but the worst part is just getting potential vendors to return calls/emails/contact requests. I understand they’re busy but they run a freakin business and when a potential client reaches out you should get back to them! Even if it’s only to say, “I got your email/call/contact request on my site and your date is unavailable.” Or whatever. It bugs me to have to chase after people. It’s like I’m begging them to let me hire them and pay ridiculous amounts of money for whatever their service is. My photographer is the one for me because he says, “I’ll call at 5:30” and my phone rings on the dot, every single time. He says he’ll email, and he does. His communication is so spot on I almost don’t even care if my photos are just okay instead of incredible.
