Overwhelmed...where do you even begin?

Recommended Posts

aw :) we've all been through this! Here is where I would start.... a date. I picked one and then narrowed down resorts based on which still had my date available. I became set on my date and it made things easier when the resorts werent available (it was like a sign or something!)

 

Also, a budget. How much do you want guests to spend? How much do you want to spend? Also where do you picture yourself getting married....on a beach? in a gazebo? a garden area? then going through pics and seeing which locations are better than others. Those were allll my starting out thoughts and thats what helped! good luck!

NUmber #1-- MAKE A LIST.

 

It will save your life. Add to it, or get rid of things-- but as you check things off the stress will just float away.

 

First-- Destination choice

Second-- Resort picks (2 back-up choices, JUST IN CASE)

Third-- Start plugging through these threads and look for:

- invite inspiration

- STD etiquette

- start looking for OOT bag stuff (cheaper at end of summer)

 

Most importantly-- Remember to enjoy every moment. While planning is by-far the most stressful part, it can also be some of the most fun. :) Get creative, and have fun! :)

Still no date or a venue. sad.gif

 

BUT, FI just moved down to Dallas (he lives in Chicago) for 6-8 weeks to stay with me and to plan the wedding. :) I've narrowed it down to 3 resorts; one in Hawaii, 2 in Mexico. Now, I'm searching for a location in the Caribbean. (FI is very inclined to the Caribbean.) We now have a budget - so it helps. At this point, I find myself more and more thinking - Civil service and let's call it a day!

Not really...

I feel the same way, now that we are "officially" engaged the stress begins... I almost wanted to just say screw it and elope but I love this forum and everyone is so helpful so I have calmed down a lot, lol!

Wow! All this advice is really helpful. Especially since I am also one of those brides to be who is overwhelmed and don't know where to start!

 

Thanks for breaking it down ladies!

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
