Rants



The lack of support from family It seems people don't take renewals seriously.They figure your already married why do it again.I'm sorry but in this day in time anyone lasting past the first few years is cause to celebrate.....not to mention the 11 years that we've been married.I want to scream to the world that we're still happily married. And the lack of items for renewals....everything says wedding on them they need more stuff that says vow renewal.

OOOh I likey this one..


Where are you?: In Colorado, wedding will be in VA Beach


How's your Progress?: Progress is good..Booked the venue where the reception and ceremony will be. I have my BM, he has his GM. Found my dress..Have a few photographers I've been getting quotes from, and I have ideas for everything else.


What's your date?: My date is September. 15th, 2012


Rants?: I don't have any rants YET. But I'm sure they will come sooner or later. 


Raves?: FI is so supportive of my decision making. Yes, he's included in it lol but he doesn't know what the heck he's doing, so I get ideas and throw them at him, and he gives me the YAY or the NAY..My family so far is very supportive, and everyone wants to help, and give ideas. I never thought I would here planning a wedding, but I'm loving every bit of it.

Where are you? In the Houston, Texas area; our ceremony and reception will be at the church.


How's your Progress? I think it's going fairly smooth.  I have my dress and how I want my hair and make-up done, two out of three of my BMs have their dresses, FH has decided how he and his guys are dressing, we've booked the church and the officiant, we're nailing down plans for the decorations, we have a person doing our cake, we've decided the groom's cake will be brownies, we know we're serving punch and coffee (though we're not quite sure what punch), in lieu of favors we're donating to a local charity that provides backpacks full of food to homeless children in the area, I know the flowers I'm using, we've decided where we want to go for our mini-moon, we've got invitations planned, save the dates sent, the photographer booked, and I've decided on my accessories.  Oh, and we have decided on a place for the rehearsal dinner.


What's your date? March 10, 2012


Rants and raves? Rants: I wish my grandmother would worry less about FH treating me wrong; he has not given her any indication that he's going to do something to me, but she's still freaking out over it.  I also can't stand that FH's family is at odds with one another.  I wanted the families to be involved, but his grandparents and mom don't like his sister and BIL, FH doesn't like his mom's abusive boyfriend but has to invite him if she's going to come, and FH's mom doesn't like his dad.


Raves: Things are going really well with the planning and the preparing (through premarital counseling).  The days are passing by so quickly, and we've received amazing things from friends and family--one of my BMs found us a queen-sized bed for free, some friends are doing our cake for free, and my FSIL (who is also a BM) is doing our invitations as part of their gift to us.

Where are you?: Boston, MA


How's your Progress?: I think my progress is pretty good. We just got engaged in July and we already pretty much have a venue and a date, and I just started dress shopping.


What's your date?: August 11, 2012


Rants?: I think the one thing that makes me crazy is that because so many people have gotten married before me that they all want to talk about their weddings! Not offer advice, just talk about what happened while they are planning. I don't think I'm a bridezilla, but when it was their wedding I focused on their wedding, now I would like them to focus on my wedding.


Raves?: FI is so great about being involved and has made it really clear that he wants me to have the wedding I want to have. He knows that I get stressed and anxious and he helps keep me so grounded and focused on what is important :)

Where are you: Southern California, wedding is in Riverside


The date: June 3, 2012


Progress: Great, got the venue, officiant, flowers, food, dress, meeting with the baker in a couple weeks, BM's dresses picked out but need to be ordered. I have all the little stuff picked out, just neet to order.


Rants: Serious lack of help. MY FI is great but kind of over the wedding stuff (we've been engaged for 11 months). My mom is helping and throwing the bridal shower/bachelorette party since my MOH is so far away but she's super critical. I love the BM's dresses but she doesn't and I get to hear about it A LOT! She's 20 years older, of course we have different taste.My photographer is a friend of ours and I've asked her to come up with a contract several times to no avail. About to look for another one.


Raves: My venue is great and makes all the planning really easy. Everything is comming together beautifully.

What's your dat:e April 23, 2012


Where are you: Washington State, but wedding will be in Las Vegas, NV


How's your Progress Booked ceremony and cocktail reception, photography and save the dates have been sent out.


Rants:  Planning a destination wedding on the internet has been challenging to choose, even though I have beeen there five times!  Also it was really tough to plan and book a venue for the amount of people you invited when you never really know who will come since its a destination wedding and in this economy.....But very excited!


Raves: So excited to be marrying my best friend and to do it in one of my favorite cities.  Excited that part of my wedding package has the wedding coordinator, hoping it can keep me out of too many details!

Where are you? Arizona. Wedding will be in Vegas!


How's your progress? Okay, I guess. Don't have anything planned yet. Good thing in Vegas you can just wing it!


What's your date? February 26, 2012. Maybe the 29th. we haven't decided yet.


Rants and raves? 


Rants: I wish my family was more supportive of our marriage. Yes, I'm young but I am absolutely positive I'm doing the right thing. I also wish we had our own place and didn't have to live with FMIL and FSIL but even that isn't horrible.


Raves: I loooove my FI so much and his mom and sister are amazing for letting us crash with them while we get on our feet.

Where are you: Las Vegas, NV

Progress: We have our ceremony and reception venues, which also takes care of the food, beverage, cake, and basic linens. Have a DJ, have an idea who i want for the band, ceremony music, and florist. Am currently researching photo/video, bridal party attire, and exact shades of color i want. Still havent started my dress search, but i know what im looking for. :)

Date: September 22, 2012

Rants: throwing such a large party on a tight budget with a FI that has more guests, expectations, and wants then i do. I know he has had more time to envision his perfect wedding then i have had, but its been very difficult to work his wants (and guests) in to our budget. I sometimes feel like im the only one compromising and doing all the grunt work of researching (which will be brought to his attention soon). I also dont like how i already feel like a nagging wife when i repeatedly ask him for something (like a finalized guest list).

Raves: i like how my FI acknowledges most of the shortcomings mentioned above and tries to do better. My family has been very supportive, and have given their opinions with the acknowledgement that my opinion is what will matter in the end. Although planning a wedding is stressful, its also exciting. I cant wait to start my married life with my FI!

What's your date?: June 2, 2012


Rants?: Not really anything yet.


Raves?: I LOVE our planner. I interned with her last year, and I am so glad that I got to hire her. She's amazing and helpful and I love it!

Where are you? MD, just moved recently!!


How's your Progress? Great... got almost everything on my "Summer to do" list done! I have a dress, about to go BM dress shopping, venue, photography, videography, and transportation is all booked.. only things left to book are the DJ and cake, which will hopefully be done soon!


What's your date? July 14, 2012


Rants and raves?


Rants: Seeing my dress on someone I knew was a bummer. Another rant is that we just bought Photoshop, so I'm so excited to do all the photo stuff, but have no idea how to use it... FI knows how, but doesn't get a lot of time to work on it. So I hate having to wait for him to do it. I definitely need to learn to use it, fast because I'm one of those people who sees the vision in my head and I want to see it done like yesterday ;)


Raves: I am so glad we've gotten so much done, and everyone is always super helpful. My dad has even helped with some of the DIY stuff, which is awesome! My parents & my FI have all helped me out a ton doing all the stuff I planned, and I'm excited to see it all in action on the big day♥
