I think the most stressful thing has been deciding on our theme and budget.  After we got those things figured out it made our expectations easier.  We are not using a wedding planner.  I know for some people they are a good decision, but for us I am a very organized person and have been able to keep track of payments and appointments so paying someone to do that for us would be a waste of money.

Feeling like I could have done  without a wedding planner…i am having all sorts of regrets in hiring one. she is good…but I am way more organized and creative than i originally thought (damn my lack of self confidence) *sigh.

MY dress! The alterations at POB in dallas did an awful job. The wedding is in Tulsa and the dress store was in Dallas. It came ordered wrong to begin with so they had to fix it before alterations then on the 2nd trip to dallas we did another fitting and after they did alterations they sent it to me in Tulsa and instead of taking it in and cutting extra fabric out they just folded the fabric over so it didn’t fit against the back right. So I ended up taking it to a tailor in Tulsa and he fixed the back as well as taking in another inch because it was still too big.

Balancing expectations… Both families have been wonderful and extremely supportive. They’ve also both extended extremely generous amounts of money. The problem? His family is used to what currently passes for a traditional wedding. My family is used to courthouse weddings and would prefer we use their contribution for married life as opposed to ‘one day.’ In the beginning, it REALLY stressed me out because I didn’t want to dissappoint either side. Luckily, my amazing Maid/Matron of Honor sister stepped in, convinced my parents that FI’s family’s wants were as valid as their own, and in the grand scheme of the WIC, we were still being exceptionally frugal. Now everyone is excited and on board. Whew!

The budget, since the entire weekend is paid by the two of us, we agonize over every decision. Trying to be budget friendly while not skimping.  It’s so hard to know what the guests will appreciate vs. end up being a complete waste of money.

I have honestly not felt stressed about my dress, in-laws (although they get on my nerves at times haha), or planning. It’s my dramatic sister and Maid/Matron of Honor who has driven me nuts. I’ve just realized that it doesn’t matter, though. I can fight back and get upset about her drama, or I can just let her rant and not allow her to stress me out and ruin my fun. Don’t let anyone get you down because this whole wedding thing is about you and your future hubby! 🙂
