I understand b/c most of them are single, and I wouldn't want to go if I didn't have a few friends for sure going...There are about 19 confirmed guests, and about 20+ 'probably', I don't like trying to convince ppl they should come. Also, a few of our close friends won't be able to make it - which is totally understandable since they all have other commitments that week, but I am still sad they won't be there. I really want everyone to have a great week - so I'm stressed that my guests won't like the resort I picked too...I really hope we all have a great time!

#1- People booking. Hands down.
#2- My WC pushing me to do all this crap and no money to do so and giving me all these deadlines. When she is just trying to make some commission money!!
#3- Paying for everything! We are paying cash for everything. No credit cards and its tough but in the end it will be worth it!

I would suggest to brides out there trying to avoid that kind of stress to either 1) pick a hotel where you don't need to book a minimum number of rooms 2) expect a lot less people to show up than expected 3) to try to not take it personally when people who you really want to be there with you say that they can't make it due to the cost!

But really, who am I kidding. I am 5 months away and I have done almost nothing to prepare so everything is kind of stressing me out.

And other than that--- my biggest stress has been that my Sister and Dad can make it. It's not so much as a stress as a hope. Everything else I am just leaving in fates/well planning hands and hoping for the very best! Also, like others, paying for everything. The budget seems in order.....but who knows. Trying to work some OT to help!
Some of the best advice I've gotten on here from past brides, is that we stress way more than we need to.
Don't stress about things you cannot change (or try your hardest not to anyways!!)

All of my guests have been family and a few friends. Getting them to book was easy. I did all the research and gave them options on our private website. To my surprise everyone has plane tickets to Rome, and plans on meeting us there to site see and travel to Positano together. I was shocked that this fell into place. I anticipated this being the biggest stress factor.
