this is just going to be a small post about the issues and stresses
i have come across while planning my wedding.
hopefully this helps someone.

when planning an LDS wedding,
there are many stresses you don't plan for,
and some that you do.
here is my list:

1. having a temple wedding.
if your entire family is LDS,
the biggest stress you will face is who to invite
and have in the room.
if half of your family isn't LDS,
or are super childish in the temple (like mine),
you will have to deal with people who don't understand
why you want to be married in the temple.
they will get upset that they aren't allowed in
and they just won't understand why.
just take it a day at a time
and remember that it is about
you and your soon-to-be spouse..
not them.

2. money.
money is a big one.
you have to decide who pays for what
and how to divide it up.
i am someone who pays for a lot of things that i have.
i don't like people spending their money on me.
it has been stressful to accept the help that everyone is so willing to give me.
i didn't want someone (or myself) to pay for a reception place..
i have decided to do the cheap route and am doing it in a church building.
i don't mind though,
because i'll be married by the time i have my reception
and it will be happy regardless of where it is.

3. others' happiness.
as the bride,
it is not your job to make sure everyone is happy.
it is YOUR day.
i know i have struggled with this one a lot.
i am so lucky to have my amazing fiance to help me be more confident in my decisions.
if someone is not happy about your marriage, who cares?
as long as you are happy with your fiance, nothing else matters.
if someone is upset because you are getting married in an LDS temple, who cares?
you know why you are choosing to do so and shouldn't settle for anything else.
if someone is upset because they aren't invited to be with you ALL day long, who cares?
if you don't want someone there because they won't make your day as happy as it should be,
don't put yourself into that situation.
if people that you do invite,
decide that you're decision of not inviting someone else is not okay,
and they decide to give up their spot,
it is their loss.

these are just a couple different things
i have found while planning my wedding.
they aren't directed towards anyone in particular.
writing them down helps me to not be as stressed.
i hope they helped someone else not feel as stressed.

good luck!
