Wedding Dreamin' @ Work


I must admit since the proposal and hence the planning of the wedding, i have begun to have a some spacey moments at work which includes daydreaming about my dress (which i found and fell in love with, more to come later), what kind of flowers i want, what little trinkets i can buy to spruce up the wedding and checking up on what is going on in the hive (i might be addicted i am not sure) or specifically checking how much further Miss Elephant has come in her wedding planning.  Don't get me wrong, i do my work but in moments where it is not busy (writing reports, following up with a parent, answering emails and phone calls and so forth and so on), i am on the internet, googling something, writing down a wedding idea, calculating the budget for the millionth time and wondering when Mr. Pancakes is going to be booking the DJ.  It doesn't help either when colleagues want to know how my wedding planning is going and i am obliged to share some of the information.  I have always been a dreamer during idle times at work but it's become worse since the wedding and so i believe i will return to my normal mini-dreamer self sometime in May 2011.  How have you ladies who are planning a wedding and or have planned a wedding been doing with your absentmindedness (day dreamin')?  Is it or has it taken over your work life and or any other areas of your life? Inquiring minds...well at least Miss Pancakes would like to know!

Sometimes it def takes over. It took over for me so much that after our wedding I got a little bummed and forgot what i used to do with my free time before planning our wedding! So def step back and take a break from the planning when you can. Now that we've been married for 5 months I feel like myself again...(it didnt take 5 months) but im getting back into the things I did before planning and blogging always helps!

I was daydreaming about my wedding two years before we even decided to get married, because as I think it "Girls are allowed to dream."

I don't think I made things overtake my life, I was planning in a time I was not working so it was def. less hectic.

My advice with be just enjoy the dreaming and don't overwhelm yourself with the planning because as long as you have your dress, Mr. Pancakes, the venue and your family and friends everything will get into place ;).

I spent as much of waking moments wedding planning!! So much so that it's driving my fiance nuts. LOL. He can't believe how much new stuff I come up with that we still have to get or do. But I love it. I've helped plan other people's weddings and now I finally get to plan my own!!

I'm sure your day will be beautiful. Don't forget to enjoy the day when it comes and to not sweat the small stuff. The most important thing is that you are marrying the man you are meant to be with :) Good luck.

I've a year plus to plan our's. Imagine having all that time to dream. After awhile I've have to consciously remind myself to stop dreaming. Or it will get superly out of hand. Too much ideas... too many things I wanna do. Lols.. Cant cope. Hehehe....

As long as the main idea is there.. the rest can go with the flow...:) Most importantly must enjoy the whole process...
