1.5 year engagement, 292 days to go....
Had my first actual wedding nightmare last night! I was late, it was a 2 day event, my hairstyle was horrible, my dress wouldn't fit right, not all my makeup was in my bag... at least the venue was gorgeous. I woke up stressed.
So anywho, I'm having a stress (not quite panic, but definite stress) moment over budget. I found it was easy to budget for everything "big" - an all-inclusive venue, a photographer, a DJ. The big stuff was easy. For everything smaller, I kept thinking things like, "Oh, I get my hair done every 2 months anyway so the day-of hairstyling will be out of my usual discretionary budget." Well, today I started writing down all the other incidentals and NOW I'm starting to stress. How the heck does all that little stuff just... pile up? I mean, we have to remember parking fees for vendors, and we're in a city- parking is not cheap. Bridesmaid gifts. When I started pricing out Save the Dates, and thinking about programs... even with just 80 guests, the STDates and programs and stamps will add up! And I until I consulted TK's Budget list again today, I'd totally forgotten about buying FI's wedding ring.
We haven't even discussed the honeymoon budget. Ugh.
Anyone else starting or already having these "moments"?
