I knew planning a wedding would be stressful. It's stressful for anyone I'm sure but for someone like me, who has zero patience, it might be the death of me. I'm one of those people that likes to take care of things immediately. I hate having emails waiting unanswered in my inbox. If someone asks me to do something, I do it straight away. In college, I was that student that wrote the 10 page paper right away instead of waiting the month they gave you to write it. It's just me. Neurotic me.
I usually embrace neurotic me. I do not embrace neurotic me when it comes to wedding planning. The thought of tasks hanging over my hand for the next nine months kills my spirit a little bit. Guy and I have just begun and my heart feels like it's going to leap out of my chest.
Please tell me I'm not the only one like this?!? Were any of you like this while planning a wedding?
Any advice out there? Even if you haven't/didn't plan a wedding... I'll take any pearls of wisdom I can get!

In frivolous news....anyone watching The Bachelorette? I'm liking it.. but not loving it this season.
My pick. Roberto.
And not just because he's from Charleston.


I didn't watch last night so if he got kicked off, don't tell me!
Who are you rooting for?
xoxo

I also have zero patience and planned a Charleston wedding (years ago). It wasn't so bad. Have you been to http://theweddingrow.com/ It's all Charleston. I wish we had something like that back in the day... Would have made my life much easier. :) You'll do fine - it's not so bad.

Def. get one of those cute wedding books... it will help you get everything done.. in a timely manner. Each month there are checklist for stuff to get done.. instead of getting overwhelmed with everything all at once. I found that helped me out. =)

Wedding planning is one of the most fun yet most stressful things you will ever do. My best advice is to just try to enjoy the process as much as you can and remember you will only be doing this once so take it all in and try to have fun with it. Just know going in that perfection doesn't exist, things will go wrong but at the end of the day you will be married to your most favorite person and that's all that really matters.

Aw, honey it will be fine! I can totally relate though, I am the same way. I want it done and I want it RIGHT NOW! Lol But it will all work out, I promise!

My friend who got married back in May planned her wedding in 3 months. 3 MONTHS!! Can you imagine? But it was beautiful and everything worked out :) Just stay calm! xoxo

I know nothing about planning a wedding...but just the thought makes me stressed out. Yup. Now my brain hurts.

I'm planning a wedding and still have no clue what I'm doing. Sigh!! But I'm sure you'll enjoy it. All the hard work will pay off in the end!!

I need to catch up and see who she kicked off too!

Just remember to breathe! My best advice? Pick the top two or three things that are most important to you and your fiance (besides being married of course!) and once you book those try not to stress about the smaller stuff - it'll all fall into place. For instance, to some people it's open bar, dress, and music. For us it was photographer, and everyone being in one room at the reception.

He looks pretty cute and I'll trust your decision because I haven't been able to keep up with it!

Sadly, I thought I would catch up on TV this summer... and I still have yet to watch a single show... of anything. Boo.

Sorry I have no advice for the wedding planning. Never done it myself... Maybe break what needs to be done into chunks, and then do a chunk at a time so you feel like you're getting more done right away.
