Planning a wedding can be stressful — there's no doubt about that.

As a bride-to-be nearing my big day this October, I am sure I have aged at an alarming rate due to stress levels heightening whenever I'm slapped with a new pet peeve. It can be something as small as someone giving me a long list of suggestions, or things to keep in mind for the reception decor, or what I should and shouldn't do for the bouquets. Or, it can be as ridiculous as receiving an angry call from someone upset that I didn't choose her as a bridesmaid. True story.

I know I'm not the only future bride suffering through what feels like an endless stream of pet peeves. Shit just gets crazier and more frustrating as the day grows closer. Below are other Latinas who were more than happy to vent to me about what grinds their own gears. For them, I am grateful.
