Please tell me if I'm being crazy - in fact, I am quite certain that I am, so more so wondering if anyone else feels this way!
So like most people, budget constraints suck the fun out of wedding planning. I'm working super hard to find gorgeous things and DIY as much as possible to make the whole shebang an awesome, beautiful experience. It's stressful, we've had two unexpected bouts of unemployment since getting engaged and starting to plan, so that's def put a damper on our wedding savings. But I'm positive that it's going to be a great day with lots of love and personal touches.
Part of me is totally, completely, borderline-stupid jealous of a girl I know who is having a PULLING OUT ALL THE STOPS $$$ WEDDING. She's great, very nice, works hard and I'm sure is contributing quite a bit herself (her parents are loaded too...) She was showing me awhile ago the designs her florist customized for her, the $3K+ dress she bought, the Jimmy Choos... and I was close to tears on the ride home. I'm just so, so jealous. I want to have a florist, not stress about DIY sourcing my own flowers and creating them on my own the day before. I'd love a couture gown. The conversation literally went:"Check out my Lazaro dress! It's being customized here, and this is the hand beaded belt I added... Where did you get your dress?" I just felt embarrassed to tell her I got it off the sale rack at DB. Not that there should be anything wrong with that! I love my dress and I love that it was on sale. It just felt like a weird conversation.
I really am happy for her and know that she is doing what she can afford. I'm just trying to get over my own jealousy. Any tips? I think I'm going to cut myself off Pinterest and SMP for awhile.
Lucky I'm in love with my best friend ...
