So far I’ve hated dress shopping. I HATE to admit that bc I LOVE to shop for any outfit so I thought dress shopping would be the best part : (

For us it was engagement ring shopping.  Everything else has been really easy.  I’m hoping the rest goes by so nice!

Each part of it will probably have its challenges, but then it’ll make the stuff that goes easily that much better! 

Venue shopping wasn’t great, and I had some stress about the dress. But cake, flowers, DJ, photog, all of it went pretty easily overall.

I just got tired of being stopped in my work bathroom every day to answer questions about the wedding. I won’t miss that. (It’s sweet that they care, it was just too much.)

So far for me, picking a photographer has been the most stressful decision because of how expensive they run. (Also, my fiance and I are from opposite sides of the country, so just deciding where to get married was difficult as well.)

I’m of the opinion that if I want anything done right, I need to do it myself.  Life has taught me this lesson.  I know I sound like a bit of a control freak here, but the worst part of the planning process for me has been letting other people take the reigns on some DIY projects.  I cringe when they cut things, lol.

For me it was decor and trying to make the whole theme come together and create the right atmosphere, all within a tight budget.

The guest list, seating chart, menu, etc were all a piece of cake. I even rewrote the entire ceremony so it reflected us and that was easy.

For me it has been rentals (tables, chairs, etc). Namely because the woman I have to deal with is a major b****! And yes, I said “HAVE TO”. Because we’re getting married on the coast, 3 hours from the city, there’s only a few event rental places and they want an arm and a leg. This rental place is the cheapest, so naturally I’m going with them. 

The lady is just really short with me in emails. Such as, I type out 5 paragraphs and I don’t even get so much as a “hi” and then like a five word response. Not once has she said thank you, even though I sent her the contract signed and am sending the deposit on the tenth.

As long as she gets the stuff where I need it to be, at the right time, and pick it up…whatever. I guess since I own a business I have a certain standard I hold people to with customer service. It’s not hard to say “hello” in an email to at least aknowledge that this person is important to you.

Stressful, stressful, and stressful. My favorite part has probably been picking out a dress. I love fashion and enjoyed the experience most of the time. I was ultra relieved when I finally made a decision though. Picking the venue wasn’t as stressful as I thought it’d be, now it’s just getting all the special details together. Invitations I think has been the most stressful part because we are putting two languages on it. We had to make sure it was worded “correctly” with my fiancé’s parents.

Venue shopping has been really stressful for me. There are so many hidden costs with a lot of venues and some venues don’t really include anything but just a place to have the wedding at. Plus, my original venue is now for sale and I found out about it a month ago and it has been really stressful. However, I toured a venue about 3 days ago and I believe that it is where I want to get married at.

@HappyBride827:  I agree. The guest list was the most stressful thing for me too.

For me it’s been money and budgeting, mainly as we have none!

Ive most enjoyed listening to lots of lovely music putting together a cd for when everyone’s arriving and for the registry signing etc. I’ve least enjoyed being stressed about money.
