    My wedding is in 6 months, June of this year. We got engaged January of last year, so we've had plenty of time to plan, so all that's left is just the small details, exactly what the flowers are going to look like, exactly what food we want, how I want my hair done, and what I want the groom and groomsmen to wear. And the wedding vows. Sometimes I feel like I've got plenty of time to make all the final decisions, and other times I feel like I am lagging, and need to actually make a decision on something. It's been really fun since I've had plenty of time to figure things out, but I will be glad when its all done and people quit asking me how all the planning is going, and giving me a bunch of advice. I've loved getting some help, but its hard to tell someone that their idea just isn't what I had in mind, but thanks for telling me.

    Mom was a little bummed because I found my wedding dress the first day we went out to look, but when you know, you know lol. I am very excited about the wedding, and I'm not at all stressed out. Unfortunately I have had a few people make me feel stressed because they come up and talk to me, and are telling me that I should be stressed because its coming up soon, etc. I hate that because I like that I'm pretty relaxed and laid back, and not on edge and driving everyone crazy, which was part of the reason for a longer engagement.

    Still, such an exciting time planning everything, and counting down the days.

    Oooooooo!!
    *excitedly claps hands*
    NB, are you by any chance in southern Alberta? We can chat via pm but I'm just curious as I'm going to a show on the 20th too.
    I got engaged on New Year's Eve to my wonderful now fiancÚ of 6 years and I'm do excited to marry him! We are looking at July of 2014, and I'm very excited to be going to NY to go dress shopping with my mom.
    I have my bridal party picked (very easy to do) but nothing else haha. I figure with my mom, MOH and two bridesmaids I can just sit back, relax, and show up to say "I do!"

    My best wedding planning help was a 3-ring notebook (w/a horse picture on it) that I kept all my ideas in & checklists of what was done & still had to be taken care of. I had it in sections & it was a big help.

    I'm the small wedding group. We want less then 30. We haven't set a date yet and to everyone seam like the weird ones not having a date yet. We may even just elope at some point.

    Two arguments have already started. First one being family trying to tell us how our wedding should be(number of people, who we can and can't invite, colours etc), our theory is they got married how they wanted, we'll get married how we want. If they do like it, don't come.

    Second one, roped up into the first one. If someone can not be bothered to speak to me when I try to have a conversation with them ( kept texting friends) don't be thinking cause your blood, you get bridal party and or an invite. I have meet his sister twice and both times (once being at our house) can say, I serious have not really spoken with her.

    I am getting to the point where I start telling where they can go....in two words in a very aussie way. It's been 6 weeks since we got engaged and bridzilla is getting close to choking someone

    Rant over.

    Oh wow... I can't blame you for ranting and wanting to take off and elope. Heck I would be surprised if you didn't! I can't believe his sister truly expects to be part of it when she can't be bothered to look you in the eye. I say drop kick her. Or better yet, send her an invite, tell her she's part of the wedding party and she has to buy her dress. Make the address on the invite wrong or the wrong date and have her show up ready for a wedding with no wedding going on when/where she shows up

    It blows my mind. I do take a bit before I lose my s**t but when I do. You will here me from the east coast. At least when the whole "you will do this and that" started, some how, I didn't start swearing with my comments or asked them if they are on drugs. All though silence did happen when the "don't like it, don't come, simple" popped out. Topic changed pretty quick too.

    Growing up, I was always told that it doesn't take much to be polite. If I see someone I don't like down the street, I still say good morning or hello. So it really grates on me when someone can not be bothered to be at least polite.

    To me, inviting her is like invite that neighbor we all have. You know the one simply referred to as "that moron, down the road", yeah, them.

    What I did as far as guests, I gave the four principal parties a number of how many they could invite.
    Grooms parents 50
    Brides parents 50
    Groom 75
    Bride 75
    It worked out great, I don't know if I was lucky, but it was a breeze.
    It was up to each individual to pare down their own list and get addresses.
    Of course it helped that I paid for the bulk of wedding, so I made decisions.
