Why do people feel the need to say things like “don’t stress, it will work itself out,” “you’re going to make yourself crazy, your planning is too detailed,” or “don’t worry, everything will be fine”
Does this drive anyone else as bonkers as it drives me!!!??

Yes it makes me mad! My Fiance says it all the time about the wedding but he lives across the country so he doesn’t have to do anything. I’m stuck doing everything all by myself so it makes me mad when he doesn’t understand the stress I’m under. I just tell him fine, I won’t do anything anymore and I will leave it all up to him and see how stressed he gets. He ends up changing his tune.

I know! Do people thing that things happen by magic?!?! And the supposed “details” are like important information regarding seating, speeches, etc. I don’t think I’m being a bridezilla by needing to know pertinent information. It’s not like I’m stressing about something ridiculous or over the top.

They are probably just speaking form retrospect, secretly knowing that it really does all work out. but at the time your world is ending and you want those people to STFU and be more compassionate 😉

@GeekChic: I hate the term bridezilla and wish it never existed. My step father thinks he is being funny when I disagree with any suggestions that anyone offers, not just him, and it gets really freaking annoying. It’s not being a bridezilla to want what you want. I don’t think that I am being a bridezilla to ask that people ship the gifts, since we are getting married 3,000 miles away from where we live.
Anyways, thanks for putting up with that rant. OP, yes. I do find it very annoying. Just let me complain about it! It’s not going to work itself out right away!

Walk the line movie line ~
Johnny ~ “it’ll work itself out,”
June ~ “no, it does not work itself out. People work it out for you, and you think it works itself out.”
One of my fav’s!

@montanamum Yes! I feel like being detailed oriented in any other facet of life is looked at as a good thing, but in wedding planning, it gets a bad connotation.
It’s like a double edged sword—people love and remember the details, but in getting to them, you’re labeled as too controlling or a “bridezilla.” So not fair. It’s not like we’re those chicks from My Big Fat Gypsy wedding or anything! UGH!

Oh my goodness yes!!!! Bugs me. That and people saying I have plenty of time!! 7.5 months to plan. Ummmmm no I dont!!! That’s planning up to the day of our wedding. Stuff has to be thought out/booked/ and all paid for by then. But it’ll “all work itself out”right?! Lol

@MissCT: I hate that word, too, and I love what you said about wanting what you want. It makes me feel better!!
@montanamum: AMAZING! Love the quote. I actually laughed out loud because it is so true!
