My little brother is a GM and he told me Mark sent out an email asking the guys "what is your shorts size?" then 2 days later "nevermind, amy put an end to that, what size pants do you wear?" hahaha

 

Amy if he even thinks of wearing bright sneakers you need to call you FMIL!!!

My Groomzilla struck again this evening... He's asked me to compile all of my lists and to put together a list of costs and get this... do a proposal. I understand that he has that type A personality and that he is concerned about costs getting out of control. He also wants the invitations done right away because he's scared people are going to book their vacations for the year soon. I understand his anxieties but part of me just wants to make him do the all of the planning to avoid frustrations and my own stress from getting out of control. I know we'll look back and laugh at of this eventually, I'm just hoping we don't lose our minds in the next 9 months... it could be a very long 9 months and I can only imagine what more we have to do and haven't even thought of....

 

I think it's time for a glass of wine!

MEN! lol

what is it with them?? do they think they should be project managing rather than 'doing'? or are they on a power trip??

I'd suggest you do the 'proposal' together and it would be great for him to be involved in it too....you won't be far into it before he loses interest and gives up on wanting a proposal.

If he's worried about money, suggest he keeps an Excel spreadsheet with all costs etc in it, and then he can be responsible for it.

I got ANOTHER lecture off my FI last night about money (!!) i'm not very good at being a recluse as I'm a bit of a social butterfly but we agreed when we started planning the wedding that we'd have to stop any unnecessary costs...but I try and convince him that we should go to this party, or this gathering, or this 'do'....and I think I made him feel bad because I always ask and he is the one who always has to say no. I do see his point, but my god I think we need a night out! doesn't help though that the last time he looked at our wedding budget we're £1,000 over budget. where the f/ck are we going to find thathuh.gifhuh.gifhuh.gifhuh.gif?

so that's me firmly re-put in my place! S&M.gif

This week I've started turning my phone off when I go to bed and I leaving in my purse beside the front door.
oh god, I think I'd be worried about having my iPhone turned off if I did that!! lol plus I use it as my alarm to get up - my alarm clock doesn't seem to do the job anymore!!

After I posted that though, I did put it at the other end of the bed so I couldn't reach it without getting up! :)

haha that's funny about your FI and brother!!

I don't really have a name, but if I have a stress I just get called 'grizzle' lol as in, 'you stopped stressing yet grizzle?'. always helps as I can't help but crack a little smile :)

and great advice on getting the FMIL involved - mine has won quite a few battles for me as we tend to agree with each other! and what guy can say no to his mum!?

see this is why I'm not sleeping - I'm in bed trying to sleep and had to log on here on my iPhone to say about the wedding cake because I'm worrying about it and keep forgetting!
It's been added!

Haha! Oh man... pardon my bluntness but I have been called a Type A personality quite a few times myself and this is what I would do to gain the upper hand (first thing that came to mind anyways):

I would have accepted to requested proposal and put every piece of information together, complete with pictures, spreadsheets and all the details and presented it on my laptop. I would have dressed up, thrown on some of my now copious amounts of lingerie, highest heels I've got and do the presentation seriously... slightly teasing though, he wouldn't be able to focus, it would totally throw him off. You have your way, in more than one, bam! wink.gif
