    The start of the wedding planning was a walk in the park but now as we get closer (less then 30 days ) it feels like there is a million little things to be done and my anxiety is so up and down I keep checking and making sure I haven’t forgot anything or will forget anything. But i am enjoying making my DJ list and picking all the right songs 🥰

    Wedding planning does take a lot of time and effort to get all the work done. The right vendors to make it a team helps with their services provided. The feeling of going away for a few days to pack up everything seems more of a week time. It was nice and easy to get everything on the simple side and just doing the stand with the materials provided and favours set up for guests at the seats.

    There is definitely a lot of work put into it! We are 30 days out and I'm finally feeling like I am getting somewhere with my to do list. I'm lucky I'm on holidays until after the wedding now so I have time to work away at what's left. I feel like it's coming quickly.

    YES - I never realized actually how much detail needs to go into it! I had fun at first browsing around venues and doing research but at the end of the day, I was relieved when we finally booked something ahaha

    Yes!! I can't believe how close it is now and I feel like while on the one hand it is mostly done, it also feels like there are a million small things to still figure out.

    Hello Kara,
    Oh no, sorry to hear about that. That can be very stressful! What colour bridesmaid dresses? Have you gotten the chance to look for them elsewhere or even cheaper?

    What would be your next plan?

    I just made a post about this. And how crazy I’m feeling right now 😂 yes! I’m feeling it.
    Mainly my stress lies with my bridesmaids/dresses- they were purchased for our original date (June 2020) and no one fits into them anymore… and they’re not available for purchase any longer. I also had a falling out last year with my sister (who was a bridesmaid) and she is no longer in my wedding. Without her in my small wedding party, the dresses don’t match and I hate the look that I loved so much last year. I don’t want to compromise. But also don’t want to ask them to buy something new, or come up with a new “vision” that I already spent 2 years planning. Ughhh.

    Hello Ashley,
    I totally understand you. I am very much stressing every now and then. Hahaha!

    Said yes to me dress Sunday. Then stressed on it yesterday as the bridal shop is telling me something different from what they explained Sunday.
    Trying to get my fiancé to remove two people from the list that I don’t care to have. Since we’re having an intimate wedding (only 68-70 people).
    Cleaned the wine bottles yesterday for table decor and stressing because the spray paint was sold out at the location.
    Yeah, the list goes on. Hahahaha. But in the end, I’m taking a break to calm myself and try to see the other side of it.
    How are you doing!???

    It's definitely not a picnic in the park (unless your idea of a picnic is a multi-course dinner for 50+ people that you prepare yourself lol). I can imagine how some people with elaborate plans who had to pivot multiple times can be in a bit of a pickle but my fiancee and I have purposely kept things minimalistic so that we wouldn't have to diverge too much in case the rules change on us suddenly.
