So... I am writing it on here to have you guys help hold me accountable. I WILL have a positive outlook on things.
I love the positive attitude. Sadly, that's what will keep you sane during this process. I'm exactly 2 months out now and I've really been on cruise control. You just have to realize that some people will not remember what your programs looked like or whether or not your centerpieces were fab. What they will remember is their overall experience and unless they're just Debbie Downers you cannot go wrong in that department. Keep looking at the brighter side if things and when you do feel yourself losing control, step back, take a deep breath and remember what is important. You are marrying the man of your dreams and that's all that matters. I think we all lose sight of that from time to time and that's normal but to regain sanity, you have to put things into perspective.

I think we all go through the insanity spell and it definitely helps for you to latch onto those who are genuinely excited for you and your FI and that are excited about Mexico. Later than sooner I came to the realization that I don't really care anymore who comes to our wedding or who complains about the fact that we're doing it the way we want to do it. As long as FI and I make it to Mexico, everyone else is just lagniappe (something extra).

When I askd her what would be included (thinking the drinks I chose are too exotic) she tells me only champagne. Now I know that wasn't the case with Amy K but I know they make up their rules as they go along. It's just frustratig because I am having my menus designed and printed as we speak. I have so much to do that I have settled on champagne...but I would love to have a real alcohol drink at the cocktail recepetion because now it's only wine, beer and soft drinks.
It's interesting that people get told different things. I was never told that the signature drink is just champagne. Problem is, I've never discussed it with my new WC, just my old one that MIA now. It will be interesting when our final payment is due. I'm NOT paying for that.

Those are amazing prices!!! I wish!
