Hi! Just looking for a few tips, and maybe to vent a little
I knew that a big wedding would be a headache. I asked my fiance if we could elope right after he proposed, but he pointed out how wonderful it would be to have family all around. That was valid, so we started planning a big family wedding.
His family has been pretty cold about the whole thing. Ironically, it would have been more their style for us to have a cheap elopement. They are also Catholic, so our Jewish wedding is very difficult for them. I live far from my family, so my mom cannot help me plan. It's all overwhelming. My fiance is not doing the brunt of the planning or the ideas (common, I think). We are both horribly scatternbrained, and missed another appointment today. I was just not wired for this sort of thing. Its only a few months away so it'll all be over soon, and its all almost paid for... but what do you guys do when you get to this point? The wedding is driving you crazy, how to make the cold in-laws happy, all of it?
It's all paid for, so now I do have to just grin and bear it. I'm hoping someone else has some thoughts on how to relax or better enjoy it all! I'll be so glad to be married to him. I just wish I'd spoken up sooner and done it on a smaller scale.
