Wedding planning has not been fun and I have only been doing it for a few days. YIKES! I’m so overwhelmed with where to even begin… and if one more person asks me, “when’s the wedding?”, I’m going to explode. I tried talking to my fiancé about helping me find vendors, and he responded, “Whatever vendors you want is fine with me.” I have spent hours trying to find possible venues, while my fiancé played video games, and I feel like I’m no closer to figuring out any of this. When I told my fiancé how much I don’t want to plan this wedding, he got mad at me and asked why I even wanted to get married if I don’t want to plan the wedding… I brought up the possibility of eloping, but he said his family wouldn’t be ok with that. I responded, “Fine! Then let your family plan our wedding!” Probably wasn’t the best thing to respond… but I’m so fing over being the only one who is actively trying to plan this thing.
