Why??? (vent...kinda)

Ok.......


Why.....is FI so calm and relaxed about everything when I am ready to freak???


Why...does my wedding seem "not so important" to others as it does to me????


Why....is my daughter being a puke about her dress?


WHY...Did I sit and listen to everyone say repeatedly "You have plenty of time still"???


and finally,


Why....Do I sometimes want to just throw my hands up and say "the hell with it all....I'd  rahter elope?"

Lipia, I feel your pain. I wanted to give up last week. I think it's like a marathon sometimes so you are at the point when you are hitting the wall. Don't worry either climb over that wall or knock it down. You will get everything done! Hang in there and you will have a perfect wedding.

I agree with Rebel.  Hang in there and it'll all be worth it on your wedding day when everything comes together.


My husband was completely calm and non-chalant throughout the whole planning process when I was stressing out.  They're odd like that!  :)

hahaha.. I was just talking to my husband about that. (We got married at a city hall last winter and are having our dream wedding next month. Next month? I can't believe how fast time went by.) I feel like I'm on a roller coaster these days. When I get one thing done, it's such a relieve. I got so bummed today how unpassionate my MOH was when I was talking about our wedding details. We'll get through this. People who are not planning a wedding will never understand what a bride goes through.

It's so true!!  I think we're so wrapped up with our own details and vision, others just don't get it (including our FIs sometimes).  I know the last few weeks are the hardest.  Everyone's trying to get things done, fit into their dress, etc.  But the last week will fly by and you'll wonder where the time went.


Enjoy it because it'll come and go!  I wish I could do it again!!!  My wedding was just last weekend and we have one more local reception next week and then it's OVER!  I wouldn't change a thing!!

FI is like most men, you will be happy of it when the children come and he is so relaxed about the intense moments, like a Rock. But still, you will be doing most of the work...


I love being on this board/forum as I get to know what you are all going through right now. When I got married my mom did everything, she was paying for our destination wedding on the Island she lived on and I felt so removed, like I shouldn't ask for anything, because she was offering to pay for everything and at the time I had nothing to offer. Now I realise I could have been more involved in the decision making and HOW MUCH WORK it was for her.


I wish I could do it all over again, just to be more a part of it all... So now I am a wedding planner, by default, (I am an officiant who gets asked to do all of the planning for my destination weddings and offers Green Wedding Consultations nation wide). I get to assist my brides with all aspects of planning and I love understanding what you all are really going through by your posts...


The time will pass sooner that you know and one day it will be your best friend or daughters wedding and I am sure you will not forget being there and be able to give the kind of support you wished you were getting right now!
