Stage 1: Total Elation!
Finally! The ring! Champagne! Congratulations!
The big tickets are ticked, the countdown has begun…
Is this really THE dress? Is the venue too far out of town?
Stage 5: The Budget Backlash
Can it really be costing that much? Why does everyone question our choices? Should we elope?
Stage 6: Micromanagement
Which three entrées? First dance song? Airbrush or traditional? Surely someone can make a decision
Stage 7. Panic Stations
A week to go! OMG!!! Where are all the RSVPs? Why haven’t I heard from the caterer? What is the weather doing?
Stage 8. Acceptance
The day is here! It’s too late to change anything! RELAX! Enjoy!
Stage 9. Unbridled relief
It’s over! It all worked out! And no one but me noticed what went wrong anyway!
Stage 10. Smug Satisfaction
The photos ARE perfect! The dress looked AMAZING! Everyone looks like they had the BEST time!
