Things have been going so smoothly and I had actually really been enjoying planning our wedding. I have a dress, we have a ceremony location, we have a reception location, we have someone to marry us, we have a bakery, we have our wedding party picked out (mostly), we have our menu set, etc. We still have a long ways to go... need to pick out flowers, a DJ and invitations being the main things yet... but I know we will get it all done in time and will have an amazing day!
Save the Dates went out yesterday and I have thoroughly been enjoying getting text messages from friends who have received theirs to let me know that they love them and that they are super excited to be a part of our special day. It makes me feel so awesome that our friends are so excited about our special day.
That all being said... I am completely stressed out and actually spent some time in tears yesterday because of bridesmaid drama. I am so glad that my bridesmaids are all keeping me in the loop about what is going on, but I am also embarrassed that there is drama going on between them. I put a lot of thought into who I picked for bridesmaids because well I didn't want there to be drama. I was in a wedding party where there was a lot of stress between the bridesmaids and it was a TERRIBLE experience for me. I didn't want to put my own bridesmaids through that. Yet somehow, they are all going through the exact thing I didn't want them to and that STRESSES ME OUT. I know it shouldn't stress me out. I know I should just let it go, but that isn't me. At this point I even want to say screw the bridal shower & bachelorette party because I feel like it is such an inconvenience and expense for some of them that I don't even really want them to do this for me.
|This is how I am feeling right about now...|
We'll see what happens though. I am going to try to take a step back from everything for a few days and to calm down before I make any rash decisions that I might regret later. I really am hoping that things all work themselves out and that one day I will look back on all of this and laugh!
Have any of you had to deal with a crazy, stressful bridal party? If so, how did you handle it?
