Wedding bells are ringing all up and through my ears… not really… Let me say this post is a rant. It does not mean I am not madly in love or looking forward to our union it means I’m human.
The money- can someone please tell me why everything is sooo freakin expensive? Really people want to charge and upcharge you for everything. Geesh!!! I am by no means rich, so I have to BUDGET… Pinterest is the devil but I love it. It will have you thinking you need all these wonderful things that when you look at the price your left thinking WTF how can I pull this off. Then it shows you the DIY on a budget option so that’s a plus. THANK GOD FOR PAYMENT OPTIONS
The girls- Ok seriously how hard is it to reply to a freakin email? We live in a society where our phones are stuck to our hands at all times and all the girls have a smart phone of some kind. I shouldn't have to hound you to reply. Then when I do Im called a Bride-zilla? Really you chicks haven’t seen nothing yet. The problem is without a reply telling me if you are in or out other things are placed on hold like flowers, gifts, groomsmen selection….
The good- Most of the major things ARE DONE!!!!! The ceremony and reception sites are booked, deposits PAID! I’m losing weight as planned (well not as quickly as I hoped but I’m losing), have a photographer chosen. The girls now have a dress picked out (sorry no leaked pictures) and so do the hostess. I’m only lacking a make-up lady, DJ, and cake… Ok let me be real there are 1000 small details left for me to do but the major things are done. I even have flowers picked out! Another huge plus is a friend of the family is going to design and coordinate the wedding at a discounted price. YAAAAY how much stress did that just relieve? A ton!
The better- My MOH and Matron of HONOR kick ass!!!! These two ladies are incredible for my sanity and so eager to help. I’m so blessed to have the two of them in my life and as a part of my day. They are all like whatever you want its about you. (dam right it is!!!! LOL, I kid I kid… a little) My only struggle with them is their gift. I want to get them something in my budget but as awesome as them that they will love!!!
