Weddings are Stressful

invitation, flatlay

It's been a while since I have sat down and really written without an outfit being involved, or being the focus.

Weddings are stressful, guys. I know it's not been said a million times on a million different websites, so this is brand new information for you all. At the beginning of the year, I wasn't thinking about planning a wedding myself, or even having one. We didn't have a date, a time, a venue, or an even an idea that a wedding was going to happen this year. In all honesty, I thought if we were going to get married this year, we'd be eloping in a local park, or going downtown with a witness to the courthouse. But, when we talked about it, me at the kitchen sink, and Tony on the other side of the kitchen bar, we decided that we would get married this year. In November. We decided this in June.

We made this stress ourselves, don't get me wrong. No one told us to plan a wedding in 5 months--that was all us. But, at the same time, we thrive on time constraints and on stress. Or, at least our track record says we do.

What is making this whole thing stressful is the thought that planning it is all on us. Thankfully, we found a venue that comes with a day-of coordinator (thank the gods), and our wedding is small, but dang, my whole head is in planning mode, and it's pretty insane. Could I hire extra help? Totally. Will they be of help this far into the process? Probably not...

We sent out invitations on Friday and are paying the deposit for our venue this week. I have my dress, I have my bouquet (silk flowers for the win, no allergic reactions here!), we have catering on the lock down. It's real. It's real, expensive, and scary, but it's real.

This is a budget wedding, too, so that adds extra to the situation. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of sites out there for wholesale or "cheap" wedding supplies, but cheap is pretty relative. It's like going to a restaurant with 2 dollar signs on Yelp and realizing that Yelp lied because $20 for a salad is not cheap. Just me? Am I the only one who experiences this?

So needless to say, wedding planning is an adventure I never wanted to go on, but am on it anyway!
