I'm getting married soon, and I'm frantically trying to plan the entire event. I'm driving myself crazy over little things, like whether the table cloths are going to be white or cream coloured. Just seems crazy when I think about it sometimes.. I mean, all these months of planning, for a single day. Blows my mind!

chillax - one step at a time
Just take a deep breath. Can you give some more reponsibility to your bridesmaids and take some of the pressue off of yourself? Don't worry too much about it. It wil all be wonderful in the end. PS Congratulations

You know it was difficult for me to ask favors from my bridesmaids back then because they were all working while i wasnt. My husband wondered about that and why i was doing everything on my own.

I actually took your suggestion, and delegated stuff to my bridesmaids and to my family as well. I trust them to do a good job.. well.. most of them anyways!!

I know how difficult it can be. I was pretty stressed out for the first month or two myself since i did most of the preparation on my own. My husband was working abroad and i only kind of report to him everything that ive done so far. I had to go canvass from one place to another for some possible suppliers. Call here, appointment here and there. not only that, there was a budget to worry so i had to look at my book and compute all the time how much is everything so far or i need to cut in from or there. whew! Alot of work but definitely paid off! I had a beautiful grand wedding at d end. (",)

I, personally, think it is silly. It just stressed people out and you never know if your day will be perfect. I remember going to my cousin's wedding about 10 years ago and it was a beautiful ceremony in a church and a gorgeous reception. Cost them a bundle and she ended the day in tears because the DJ wanted money and the caterer wanted money and this happened and that happened and she got into a fight with her mother, the bride's maids complained about having to wear their dressed the whole night because they were uncomfortable and the open bar...well that always spells disaster. I wonder if she really wants to remember that "special" day. Maybe it is because I was never the "fairy tale" type that I didn't really care to have a big wedding like that. Mine cost me a few hundred dollars. I didn't wear a white dress. In fact I wore the dress I had bought to wear to the above cousin's wedding. It was still a magical day and I will never forget it.
