BEAT the stress!!

Okay, so life has been a total sh*t sandwich the last few months (okay more like year...)  and wedding planning has just been a huge source of stress amongst all the rest!

And my FI and I were at dinner with his 'rents and a bunch of their friends (joy! lol) last night when we realized...oh lordy, we have 4.5months to go!!! AH!!!!

We've had pretty much everything "planned" for about 2 years, but even to this day, we don't have much booked, and even the one thing we do have booked, that vendor is a HUGE headache and we have no idea if she's actually going to SHOW! Ugh!  And with life stuff going on, the issues are potentially moving to the south in 4 weeks, or moving to another area of our state in a few weeks (at least we won't be living with the in-laws though,...I digress!) 

SO, after a tantrum & meltdown...I realized, I'm just planning a friggin party and I need to remember that EVERY DAY! And just stop turning it into a huge thing, and stop freaking out, but also stop ignoring it. 

So I did a little pinterest search for 'grad parties' and 'party planning checklists' and all that jazz. Obviously weddings include a few more things, IF you want them, but for the most part, I'm using this planning my friend & mentor Ashlee Proffitt made up for her kids bday parties! lol

 

But hey...it keeps the stress down & helps you simplify! 

 

I hope it can help some of you too loves!

You're so right, it's a party and just one day of the rest of your life! Your planning will come together and in the end you'll be married to the man of your dreams!

 Say yes to the dress, not the stress.
