  • No, I think my mom would have gotten out her granite rolling pin and smacked me upside my head if I were.

    I did freak out because my best friend couldn't make it who was suppose to be my maid of honor.

  • I wasn't, at least I don't think I was. Ask my bridesmaids if you want a more accurate picture though. Honestly I don't remember most of the planning or most of the wedding. I picked the color for the dresses the bridesmaids picked what looked good on them. I did have to get a new dress when I ended up 3 months pregnant and the original dress didn't hide my baby bump. That was my mom though, not me.

  • No, I was suuuuuper chill. I went into it saying it is impossible for everything to go perfect so let's all just have fun. What's gonna happen is gonna happen. Let's party.

  • I let my mom plan most of it cause she's great at it. So no.

    It makes me cringe, too.

  • MIL might have thought so, because I didn't let her bully me into something I wasn't comfortable with, but no. DH and I put together our wedding rather quickly (cousins were moving, we just knew it was time, etc), and I wanted something small, just us. We did it really low key, but we did it mostly on our own.

  • Not really. I had one freak out, when they didn't deliver the cake on time and then forgot to put on the decorations my mother had brought them for it. But when they came back out to put the decorations on, I did apologize for my attitude, because I did feel bad. It was a screw up, but I knew I'd overreacted. Didn't help matters that I was pregnant at the time. lol

  • I planned my wedding in four months. I made things when I could, tried to find bridesmaids dresses that were reasonable, and didn't worry too much about everything else. The wedding was more for dh than me. I really didn't care how we got married, so little details weren't a big deal to me, therefore no high expectations, no stress.

  • I can't be the only one who has seen these people IRL.
    Anyone?

    Friend of mine was textbook. I think that contributed a lot to her husband getting custody of all the friends after the divorce 2 years later.
