@2PeasinaPod: Thats a really beautiful way to articulate it- and it is SO true. During the whole stressful process, you really see your man’s character.

Wedding planning has taught me

1). That I would rather plan someone else’s wedding but my own. I just want it to be here already!

2.) Wedding planning brings out the worst in people- jealousy, passive/aggressive comments, manipulation.

3).Not to feed into the drama/BS

4).To keep my mouth shut, and keep plans to myself.

5). To stay positive no matter what and surround myself with people who are supportive

Wedding planning has taught me that being Type A can have its advantages! 🙂

On the other hand, it’s also taught me not to sweat the small stuff, to try to roll with things as they go, and to make compromises for the sake of making our families happy. That said, you definitely can not please everyone with everything you do.

I have also learned that I can do crafts. I didn’t realize that I could strass my own shoes and make my own programs.

Lets see… I have learned that I hate planning weddings, I have no actual friends, and that weddings don’t HAVE to be thousands of dollars 🙂

Wedding planning taught me that all you need is a bride, a groom, a license and a few witnesses. The rest is just extra. Some of the extras are worth the time and money but most aren’t. There is a certain satisfaction in keeping life simple.

That people will constantly come up with new and unexpected ways to irritate/confuse and annoy the bride and groom

@missrobots: Superlike. And I totally agree!

All I want is to stand up in front of our immediate family members (all 26 of them) and say, “I love this man with the strength of a million suns; I’m going to be with him for the rest of my life; and together with him and my kiddos, my life is complete.” Then I want to have some champagne and a great dinner with our family and get on with living life.

The details are just gravy, so wedding planning has been like…seasoning the gravy. 🙂
