My favorite part so far was meeting all my friends for lunch and giving them wine bottles that read will you be my bridesmaid! I've also been enjoying talking to my decorator about my vision and making my song list for my DJ.
The best part was when we flew to Vegas in May and did a few days of venue (Hotel) hunting. It was our first real step in the planning process and made the engagement feel real. FH and I immediately agreed on the same location and the rest of the planning was easy after that. Wedding planning is really only as stressful as you make it.
Engineering it so that I was able to plan and pay for it all on my own own (with my FS, of course). I am very independent and knew exactly what I did and didn't want. I knew from the start I didn't want others involved because that just adds to the stress.
The wedding invites. My wedding is a destination wedding so everything is done via email and ideas sent to vendors are pictures from pinterest. The wedding invites made me feel more active in wedding planning. I wouldn't change my position for anything though! Such an easy and memorable time!
