February 2012 Brides!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Yeah, he's always left everything up to me, but he sees me being stressed out over it and ready to throw in the towel,since I never wanted a wedding anyway....I just wnted to go to the courthouse but his family wouldnt allow that.  While we were dating I told him if I ever HAD to have a wedding it would be a destination wedding, I didnt want a local wedding and I knew all the little details would stress me out, so here we are.

 

I setup our engagement photos, picked the photographer, created the Save the Dates, the resort, argued with vendors about pricing......  I just wish he would pick up SOMEthing.  I know if I asked him he would TRY to do more...it just feels like its me against the world.  All my bridesmaids are in California...along with my family and friends so no help with the DIYs.  I work 2 jobs, have  4 year old (he'll be 5) thats starting Kindergarten in a couple of weeks AND planning a wedding.  It's just getting to be too much and I dont want to drop the ball anywhere.  I dont think he understands what a task/challenge planning a wedding and taking care of all the little details is to me.....

 

I know you all know where Im coming from...

I totally understand!

 

Since we ended up deciding on a DW, I have pretty much been on my own. I did all the research on the location, the resorts, and all the details so far. Anytime I would ask for his opinion it would be a "sure" or "that looks fine" or "I don't know, whatever you think". It has been driving me NUTS!!! 

 

He did help me assemble our MIB STDs, but pretty much complained about it the whole time! He tells me that if he were the one doing all this it would be simple and easy and he wouldn't worry or deal with the small details (such as programs, place cards, table decos etc), but I wouldn't like it anyways. While that might be true, it would still feel nice to have a little more input or enthusiasm with the planning process. I am pretty laid back and don't get stressed easily, but there are times when it all seems to start adding up quickly and I feel like I am being crushed by all the things that we still have to decide/purchase. He says I take one simple task (like centerpieces) and spend hours and days and weeks "researching" it and looking at hundreds of pictures, when I should just pick something and stick with it. To make it worse, we are on a really tight budget, and any time I come home with clothes he freaks out! I'm constantly explaining that I need to shop for clothes for the wedding NOW since there is still summer clothes available. He just asks why I can't wear what I have already. HELLO!?!? I'm the bride! I have to look EXTRA good while we are down there!

 

I swear its a guy thing, but sometimes I want to smack him! All my BMs and my mom also live elsewhere and won't be able to be much help. So I'm also completely on my own. I just have to remember to enjoy it while it lasts since I'm sure one day I will wish I could do it all again!

Oh and I JUST found and bought my shoes off of ebay! I'm super excited since they will be my first pair of "designer" shoes. I was hoping to go for pink, but I decided it wasn't worth the hassle (and I wasn't finding ANYTHING I particularly liked)

They're called "Sharina".

 

Ya, for sure a waaaay more practical purchase. Haha. I just can't justify spending ~$1000 for a pair of shoes, despite how much I love them.

It was only in my city unfortunately but it may make it's way to you!!!!!!  Started my day off with a 6:30AM class and feel great!!! If only I could drag myself out of bed that early every morning I would be great!!!  My mom has always been her own Martha Stewart so I always loved doing "projects" the wedding has just allowed me to explore them more and more.  I am loving designing my logos and stationary stuff for my wedding on the computer that has been so fun!!!



 


OOOOOOO so exciting!!!!!! Valentines Day wedding, I didn't even realize!!! Today is my birthday so it's a good day to mark the 7 month countdown!!!!!!!!!!!!

I did notice them actually! I couldn't find them in my size on sale though.... :( I have SUPER tiny feet (5.5) so whenever I come across anything I like in my size, I just go for it! I bought these on Ebay for $79! Can't go wrong with that price. I will have to keep my eye out just in case though. I am wearing Vgirl's pink crinoline under my dress, and wonder how hard it would be to match the pink...I don't think they'd have to be EXACT, but I'd hate to have 2 completely different shades of pink.

Me thinks I found the PERFECT TTD and reception gown....I decided to go with two dresses...one that I will wear to go all out in...and one so I can dance/spin and feel happy in and Trash.  Im wearing both dresses for my TTD I NEEDED a second one cause we are literally TRASHING it! And I dont think I will have the heart to trash my wedding gown....I want to sell it so I can make another bride happy! :)

 

So here the one I am considering for the 2nd

Oh I am so glad!! I was hesitant to tell you!!!I I have SUPER huge feet (opposite end of the spectrum) so I have a similar problem lol!!!!!! Gotta love ebay for shoes you LOVE cheaper!!!!!! I think the white shoes will look great, better than 2 shades of pink for sure!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
