The exhaustion of planning

stress_reliever1We decided on a Sunday evening that we would, in fact, have a wedding. The next day, as Fiance was not going to be in the office, he agreed to begin making some phone calls to check on the availability of possible venues. I got a phone call at 8:15 a.m.

“Wedding planning is exhausting!” he exclaimed with a LONG sigh.

Good thing we aren’t looking at a long engagement.

    I only got to step 2, then my monitor went dead. Can you email me at with the remaining steps? Thanks.

    p.s. your fiance sounds like a sissy (or a Canadian)

    Jill, I don’t envy you at all. It’s been over 6.5 years for me and the unpleasant memories of putting together bubbles and programs are remarkably vivid. I don’t regret having a wedding, but I would’t want to do it again – which is why were are *supposed* to only get married only once in our life, I suppose! Best of luck with all your planning!

    I think nowadays everyone expects perfection. Back in the 70s we were allowed to make mistakes. Of course everyone was so thrilled we were getting married, they didn’t notice. I remember, as a maid of honor, having to hook an article of clothing on the bride that kept coming undone. The groom finally took a pliers and fixed it good. No one commented on it except we who took part in it. Here’s to the bride and groom: “Loosen up and have fun with the planning. It’ll be here and gone before you know it.”
