It sort of takes over your life…

Filed under: All Things Wedding — by corazondeswiss @ 9:52 pm

So, I’m addicted to the.knot.  Seriously.  I can’t help myself.  But be forewarned those of you anxiously awaiting your engagement rings, when you register on the.knot you’ll get a to-do list with about 20 overdue items on it.  I totally freaked out.  I’d been engaged less than a week and hadn’t even set my wedding date.  And somehow I was already behind.  Keep in mind that I’m a list person.  I love lists.  Make them all the time. (Lose them.  Forget to put things on them, but that’s beside the point.) Anyway.  But this list with its overdue items totally stressed me out.  Fortunately, I’m down to 5 overdue items currently. 
Some of the discussion boards and articles, columns and other girls are so sweet. And helpful.  But also beware of the vultures who will attack you and your ideas and make you feel stupid.  The opinions are everywhere.  And conflicting!  Fortunately (unfortunately?) I have a fiance’ who wants to be involved.  Is even helpful.  (He found the website that led me to our photographer, whom I love, love, love! Unfortunately, he’s still gloating over this.)  Sometimes it’s hard.  And tiresome.  Everyone is interested and offering to help.  But really, there’s not a whole lot everyone else can do.  No one else can decide about the flowers.  The cake.  The food.  The drinks.  The tuxes. The favors.  The guest list. (How to cut it down.  Drastically.) 
Oh and did I mention that my officiant friend’s wife just announced that they are expecting a new (3rd!) baby approx. 3 weeks before the wedding?  (Am currently not worrying about this b/c he hasn’t said anything to me about backing out. Would prefer not to have to eat words and ask pastor of church we are marrying at to officiate. Would prefer not to have to find a way to get CP up here for 3 counseling sessions because said friend told me we could do it with him online.)  I digress.  
Okay.  Bridezilla moment over.   



  1. Have you seen this post about The Knot message boards? You might appreciate it after your experiences…

    I admit an addiction to the Wedding of the Week slideshow, even though I am safely past the newlywed stage. Bah. I can’t stop!

  2. I cannot wait for my time to be ridiculously obsessed with wedding planning. I hear it can be stressful in parts, but I wouldn’t miss it for anything. Let it take over your life! It’s fun to read about.

  3. I think I’d have to avoid that site, because I’d go mad. Especially because it’s all for planning.. and not really for enjoying the moments! 😛
