After disagreeing with something I said in another thread, someone said, "There's enough stress in planning a wedding. Go ahead and add some more." I don't get it.
First, I don't get why the differing opinion of a stranger on the internet would stress anyone out at all.
More importantly, I don't understand why people think wedding planning is stressful.
My thought is...It's YOUR wedding. YOU control what it is and how you do things. Why would you purposely do it in a way that causes you a lot of stress?
Money stress? Scale down your wedding or select a date further out to save more money.
People stress? Don't invite them.
Time stress? Choose another date.
I guess I may be the minority. We scheduled our wedding 2 years out to ease the financial burden and give us adequate time to plan. We are only inviting our closest friends and family. We don't care at all about keeping up with the Jones'. We're only having aspects of the wedding and reception that are important to us. I don't understand where the stress comes in.
If you find wedding planning stressful, I'd like to know...why does it stress you out? Could you do anything to ease the stress?
