Ladies, I need to take just a moment to vent to some people who might understand. I hope you don't mind.
Here's what I've learned recently: Wedding planning does not happen in a vacuum. You hear all the horror stories about how stressful and difficult it is to plan a wedding and you think, "Mine will be different. Because I am organized and creative and good at this sh**. This will be a breeze." Except you forget about how many other people are going to be involved. And no matter how organized and creative and good you are, other people will always have opinions that they have to share with you. There are parents to please, bridesmaids whom you don't want to demand too much of, friends who are opinionated and self-centered, and fiancés who love you dearly but are maybe a bit ill-equipped to handle you at your most stressed. So yeah, if I were marrying myself and had no friends or family, this wedding would be a breeze. But unfortunately, I don't live in a vacuum and there are a lot other people involved. Feeling a tiny bit overwhelmed and underappreciated.
We're exactly one year out today, we're in the midst of a venue change (stressful!) and suddenly things are starting to seem very real. How is everyone else doing?
