12 Frustrations of Wedding Planning Every Bride-to-Be Knows To Be True

Wedding planning is all unicorns and glitter until you actually start planning the wedding. When you first get proposed to, you scroll through Pinterest and become so excited about all the seemingly endless possibilities for your wedding. But when you really get into it, most of the time these ideas are either too complicated, out of your budget, or something your simply just too lazy to do. So for all you brides out there that are getting really tired of pretending that planning a wedding is the best thing that's ever happened to you, this one's for you.

When you realize you don't have enough room in the budget for the wedding you've always dreamed of


What do you mean we can't afford a private concert from Michael Bublé? Definitely not too much to ask for.

When you ask your fiancé which wedding invitation he likes better and he says "I don't care"



YOU DON'T CARE? WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU DON'T CARE???? All you want is a yes or no, just a little smidge of an opinion that can give you something to go off of that can make your decision making the process just a little bit easier. Is that REALLY too much to ask?

When you show your grandmother your dress and she says it shows too much ~skin~

Seriously, you just came out to have a good time and you feel so attacked right now. Why can't she just support you?! This dress is your literal DREAM. It ain't the 50s anymore, get with the times. You're gonna show a little bit of skin at your wedding and you aren't gonna feel bad about it either.

When you try to DIY your place cards and it looks like literal crap


DIY your wedding they said. It'll be fun they said. Until you realized your handwriting sucks and you just spent four hours on place cards that you can't even use because it actually looks like a third grader made them. Guess it's back to the drawing board.

When you call the wedding venue you've been dying to get married at ever since you were a young girl and they're booked solid for the next 3 years

You can't imagine yourself getting married anywhere else. This wasn't part of the plan and somebody else should cancel because your day is more important...right?

When you go wedding dress shopping and you found a dress you love but your sister says she hates it


You finally found something you actually feel like you in and she just took a metaphorical dump all over it. Was that REALLY necessary? 

When your wedding is a month away and you still have 50 million things left to do


The stress. It's too much. Not enough time. So many things left to do. Very stressed.

When your fiancé's cousin calls to throw a fit because her whiny 8-year-old son wasn't invited to the wedding

Is it really a crime to not want screaming and crying children at your wedding? We don't think so.

When somebody requests that you play the chicken dance at your wedding


This isn't 2002, we'd rather ditch the chicken dance.

When you're at your bridal shower and everyone's watching you open your gifts and it's dead silent


You're starting to feel like you're on display and it's just getting a tad bit ~awkward~

When you're at your bridal shower and one of the gifts you open is a dish towel, but you have to act like it's the best thing you've ever seen for the sake of a good ~reaction~


Let's face it, there are only so many kitchen products you can actually get super excited about.

When all your bridesmaids get excited because they decide they wanna take you out to the bars for your bachelorette but you high-key just want to stay in bed and watch Netflix
