Computer Planning

I never thought I'd be spending so much time in front of the computer while doing this wedding planning business. I thought I'd be out shopping, and running errands, and carrying my little notebook around with me, but no... I am on the computer probably more then I'm physically doing anything.

Between my lists (OHHH MY LISTS), and email communications, and IM'ing with my friends working through details and keeping me with perspective and calm, I hardly have time for the running of the errands. I mean I have shopped plenty! But I'll spend about 6-10 hours on the computer around the physical errands and such.

I am on the phone quite a bit, usually ironing things out after I send a particularly snippy email to a family member (or ALL of my family members). And just this week I'm working through the details a lot with my friends that are helping us this weekend, but still, most communications is via email or IM.

Such a different world these days.

It's SO different than when we got married. I remember wanting a wedding magazine for sarees. Guess what I saw an ad for in a magazine Ted's mom brought home from England? Yes, Asian Bride, with beautiful pictures of sarees. Sigh.

And the registering online...and the invitations...and the couture dresses (not too many of those back in the dark ages, believe it or not...)

I'm not sure if it's better these days or not, though. Sometimes too many choices just styme a person. At least, too many choices tend to styme me.

It's so much more convenient these days to communicate. Wish I had the internet when I got married !

Yes, it is much more convenient and you don't even have to leave your house!

How exciting all this is for you! :)

It's great to have the computer to help. I remember this massive file folder, although I did use the computer for lists, to track expenses and printint out my wedding program, but not so much for communications. That would have been really helpful.
Getting very close! Enjoy the frenzy - you're going to look back and remember it as a special time.

Thanks for your comment, Cherry! It's cool to know that there's another person with the same name as me! :D
Are you a wedding planner based in the US?
