I've decided that wedding checklists are the devil! Not because they aren't helpful but because they cause way too much anxiety AND none of them have the same timelines. I hate that everytime I go to check off something on my wedding to-do list it tells me that I'm woefully behind on 15 items whereas the app on my phone has the same items listed to do a month from now, but reminds me that I'm behind on everything else. UGH!! Add that to my already heightened anxieties that something is going to go wrong, and I go into detail checking overload. My darling fiance is great at diffusing the stress but I even get slightly irritated that he can remain so calm sometimes. I'm far from a bridezilla, but I can see where all of the conflicting timelines and the (seemingly) millions of tiny details could drive a girl over the edge... especially if she doesn't have her guy determined to be smack in the middle of the planning process to alleviate some of the stress and run interference. Luckily, he knows exactly when to step in with a glass of wine and a "It's going to work out fine, everything will be perfect. Just breathe" Now, if I can only heed that advice, I might not dread the checklists everyday!
