Happy New Years Ladies! 2013 is here and I will be in Maui Hawaii next year for our 15th Anni...
Ok, I got engaged in March (0f this year!). Almost as soon as I was proposed to I was confronted with the questions of "When is the date?", "What are your colors?", etc., etc.... and at the time I was just like, "Can't I just enjoy being engaged?". Well, that lasted for all of about 2 months until we decided that we would get married in December of the same year. I can't even tell you right now what led us to making that decision other than that 1) My best friend got engaged around the same time and were planning on doing it around March or April (which was our original time that we preferred, but didn't want to worry about doing it around the same time since we share the same friends), 2) That our family would be more able to come into town since it was closer to Christmas, and 3) Because we weren't thinking logically!!
I guess I just look at Brides within this community that have 30 + months that already have so much more done than even I do with only 77 DAYS!! I am really freaking out. Joe and I have been together for more than 10 years, so it's not like we had some whirlwind romance and he proposed fast or anything. I think that He and I are so ready to begin this chapter in our lives that we didn't think about all of the planning and money and stress that went along with it. It is already too late to decide and push it a little forward....invitations have already been ordered. Nonetheless, I want this to happen in December, but I am scared that by doing this so fast that the wedding that I envision in my head will not be what I want it to be because we are having to do it so soon.
I am so overwhelmed and so jealous of other brides that already have so much done and they still have more than a year to prepare. I was just wondering if there are other brides out there that feel the same way that I do??? BTW--I am just forewarning you guys that come November, I may just spontaneously combust all over WBC!! ahhhh!!
So, I guess my question is for all the brides that are out there that are trying to plan a wedding in 6 months or less.....how do you do it without going mentally insane???!?
