    Favorite - I have to say a lot of things have been fun so far and not complicated however it is a toss up between ceremony/reception decorating and wedding attire (including jewelry and make-up) Least favorite - guest list. Took FOREVER to get a finished list and I still think I got some of his family's name wrong. I am really dreading the seating arrangements.

    Favorite :) - collecting ideas, looking at other beautiful real weddings, creating my wedding "look book". Least Favorite :( - sticking to a budget! There are so many awesome vendors and locations that I would love to splurge on. It's hard to step back and figure out exactly where you want your money to go!

    Favorite: Dreaming up all the little details that makes this day "us" Least Favorite: Tactfully handling the opinions of others; being assumed to be a bridezilla the minute you say you're planning a wedding (though I'm FAR from it); figuring out all the logistical details (who will do what, how will an item get from Point A to Point B)

    My favorite part is the planning and booking. I'm a control freak and I love stuff like this. I think this is one of the only times I'll get to do what I want, with in reason of course.My least favorite part is waiting for everything to come to fruition. I also don't like that we can't just pay for everything up front. I know that in this industry, and especially in this economy, that's not the smartest thing to do. However, I HATE having such large balances looming over us. I feel like I'm in the hole even though we have the money to pay for it. Or I'm afraid that we're going to go completely over budget b/c we have time to save any the splurges. This makes me feel so neurotic!

    Favorite- I've enjoyed most of it... so far! Every time something gets done, I am just so excited to marry FI.Least Favorite- My parents are paying. Yes, this should be a blessing (and yes, it is), but it is difficult to please everyone with the details. Heck, my parents have already compiled a playlist for the DJ. Lionel Ritchie is on it. 'Nuff said.

    No joke, I was walking to my car last week and somebody drove by with "Hello" on full blast and the windows down. I can see that being played at the end of the night when everybody is all wasted and crooning it aloud. Or maybe I can see me doing that...=)

    Favorite---- I have loved all aspects of planning, but mostly organizing this day and making it "ours"   Least favorite---- the cost and dealing with FMIL (who I decided I will be calling MIL after the wedding) and her "not so nice opinions" on EVERYTHING and her insistance that we invite 85 of her friends (not family) and NOT paying for it!!

    Favorite - Getting to make a bunch of projects, getting to spend quality time with my husband, family and friends throughout the planning process, and reading through the knot, bios and wedding magazines constantly! (Okay, that was three, but I loved wedding planning and would do it for my job if I had the opportunity!) Least Favorite - Dealing with a little bit of family drama from DH's side and trying to wedding plan during busy times at work.  Otherwise, I loved everything!

    Favorite: Pretty much all the little stuff...I loved making my own Save-the-Dates, looking thought magazines, hearing all ideas on theknot, and all that little stuff that I get to keep doing!Least Favorite: Picking out a venue...it was brutal!  Now that that is done, I feel much better!  Also, I went to look for dresses for the first time, and I wish I had just found something...I was not a big fan (and I don't know why, as I LOVE shopping!)...
