Best thing/Worst thing

I thought it would be fun to all share the best and worst parts of planning a wedding!

For me, the best part is the attire! I had so much fun picking out my dress with the moms and picking out the BM's dresses with my girls. Luckily, my fiance has good taste too and picked out an awesome tux!

The worst part is, budgeting!!! I'm so awful at it. Thank goodness I have lots of help to keep us on track :-)

    I totttaalllly have to agree with that being the worst part!!!  Everything seems to add up so quickly!!!

    For the best part I think my favorite part was planning everything with Rob.  I loved putting "us" into everything :)   Other than that I had a ton of fun going dress shopping as well!!!

    Best thing was us choosing a destination wedding over a traditional one. Made us really happy and it was very "us"! So we're getting married in the Luxor Pyramid in las vegas!

    Worst part....I don't think there is one....but maybe saving up the money for all of it. It means sacrificing the little things. But it'll be worth it on our wedding/honeymoon when we have extra spending money!

    Of the whole planning process would be choosing not to have Children at the wedding. The the choice that was easy, the after affect with MIL, that was not so hot. But in the end Totally worth it!

    Right now, 18 days before my wedding I have to say that figuring out seating is the WORST...ugh!

    Ew, yeah seating is/was a pain.  The other worst thing for me right now is getting out catering contract nailed down 3 days before the wedding... that's right 3 days before the wedding.  I feel like this maybe should have been done about a month ago, but that is just my opinion on the topic.

    Best thing... picking out rings, picking out dresses, and figuring out flowers!!

    Best thing:
    The attire. I loved everything about my dress and everything I had on that day. I even had a good time picking out tuxes with H. 

    The invitations were also so much fun. Being a graphic designer, I fell madly in love with designing my own and putting them together. Loved all of that!

    Worst thing:
    Trying to please several different people in the wedding party. My BMs were all different sizes, so trying to find dresses that appealed to all of them was a struggle. 

    Music. I am not musically talented in any way, so this was ridiculously hard to figure out.
