Wedding Planning Sucks

Dear Hive,

Up until now, wedding planning has been all sunshine and rainbows. THEN the 4 month countdown hit and I’m starting to have heart palpitations. My to do list doesn’t have any high importance things anymore (venue, dress, etc.) but I do have time sensitive things (officiant, honeymoon, e-shoot, etc.). These are the things that are causing me to have *almost* meltdowns because I’ve been so busy with non-wedding things.

I started to feel the tears today when I emailed my photographer to ask about dates for the engagement shoot in May. I had a inkling they’d be busy but the response was, “we’re entering our busy season and the first date we have is in mid-July.”

July?!?!?!?!?!!? That’s 3 months away and officially puts my “spring engagement shoot” out of commission and is now a “hot summer day in July shoot” which makes me want to cry because I know Mr. Lobster will be so cranky from wearing anything man-cute. I can’t have his e-shoot outfit a tank top and cut-off shorts. I just can’t. (Haha, honestly, he’d never wear that even if it was 100F outside.)

P.S. I know, it’s not the end of the world. I know the most important thing is that Mr. Lobster and I love each other and get married blah blah blah. :)

Is the novelty of wedding planning wearing off for you, too? How are you dealing with the madness?

    @Mrs. Frozen Yogurt: @FutureRicioli: @Liz Coopersmith: Thank you for your ideas! I already paid for my e-shoot with my primary photographer but now I might consider doing something quicker with another photog or friend.
    @ColorCoated: yes! I saw that dress at anthro too and now is part of my e-shoot options :)
