I already dislike wedding planning and I don't even have a date set, a venue, a dress, or even colors picked out. All I have is a tentative guest list that I have to go over again and again and again. I want to cry.
My sister is such a doll, though. She is trying to help me out by sending me spreadsheets she used and researching locations and prices for me so I can try to narrow down what type of venue I want and what is reasonable for our budget. That will certainly help and I am very grateful.
The worst part about planning the wedding is that 99% of the bridal party (even though I haven't narrowed it down yet and it could always change a year from now) is across the country and won't be able to be here with me through the process. It breaks my heart and is one reason I don't even want to plan this thing.
We do have e-mail, phones, and even video chat if needed but it's not the same. I'm so envious of all of the brides who live near their families and close friends. But, this is the life I chose right? I'll just have to suck it up when I can, and cry when I can't.
I'm sure all of you brides out there are laughing at me (in a good way) knowing that it will all be okay but this is me, a new bride-to-be who is extremely stressed out not knowing what to do or where to start! ;)
