Thoughts While Wedding Planning


Planning a wedding is exhausting.  There is less than 3 months to go until my wedding, and I feel like every day there is something to freak out about: the cost, the guest list (which should be finalized but some people don’t realize that!), the DIYs, the logistics! When I think of the big picture and all there is left to do, I get exhausted!

Here are some thoughts I’ve had while trying to plan my budget wedding:

  • Why did I decide to hand-fold approximately a billion paper flowers? Someone give me $500 so I can just buy my inspiration flowers on Etsy!
  • Yes, mom, adding two extra people is the end of the world. Do you know how much extra money that is?!
  • Who needs vendors—I can bake and take pictures and play music! Ok, maybe some vendors.
  • How much is a grooms’ cake?!? We can share.
  • I can totally make that myself!!! ….Hahahaha, nope.
  • Wish you would have told me that you hated that idea about 6 months ago.
  • Would anyone notice if I didn’t invite this whole list of people? I don’t think anyone actually talks to them anymore.
  • These vases are $1 instead of $10? They’re perfect!
  • Hmmm…will that go on sale soon?
  • I’m just going to buy some wine and call my Maid of Honor.  That’ll fix everything!

So what’s been on your mind while wedding planning?
