Okay, I have 66 days til the wedding and just nearly had a panic attack after attending a friend’s wedding this weekend. Everything about her wedding was perfect. The centerpieces were creative/DIY amazingness, everything matched perfectly, she looked stunning!
And then I started thinking about my own wedding, omg, what if the nintendo theme fails miserably and it doesn’t all look as good in real life as it does in my head?! What if my florist doesn’t see my vision, and I wind up with ugly centerpieces?!
Basically what it boils down to is that I’m a crazy control freak and I am realizing that I am not going to be the one setting up the chairs, the tables, the centerpieces, everything is in the hands of our venue… the first time I’ll see everything all together will be after the ceremony and walking into the reception hall… my guests will see the room before I do… so what if they don’t do it the way I envision it?!
I’ve gone so far as to add to my “wedding board” hoping/praying/dying to see how it all looks together… and in the board it works, but what about in real life?!

if you talk to your friend..chances are she is going to say that something went wrong, it wasn’t the way she envisioned.
So who cares if flowers were off or something else goes wrong….you are getting married to the man that you love right? That’s all that counts. You are going to be too absorbed with other things going on than to worry about it.
As long as you, your FI and the officiant are there…who cares about the rest? Don’t let simple things ruin everything for you.

I went to my first wedding after my own wedding last weekend and you know what I thought? “I bet I’m not even noticing all the little details that were super important to her.” The fact is–the wedding is for you and your husband. Everyone will be there because they love you, not because they’re super into centerpieces and placecards. Seriously! They won’t remember your centerpieces–what they will remember is how you couldn’t take your eyes off your husband, how in love you two seemed, and how fun dancing was. Your wedding will be beautiful, even if it isn’t just how you envisioned it! So many things went wrong on my wedding day and people still said it was beautiful. So just enjoy your day! That’s the most important part.

Thanks bees! I probably noticed all of her little details because I am going through the planning too… you’re probably right, other guests probably didn’t even give a second glance! SIGH of relief… I am sure I’ll panic or two more times between now and Sept 25th, but you girls really help!

I am almost your date twin (sept 24th!) and I totally hear you on freaking out about it all coming together. Like other bees have said, just try and focus on the big picture–you’re marrying your wonderful FI that day! I went to a wedding a few weeks ago, and even in super-bridal mode, checking out all her centerpieces and decor, etc, after a while, I totally forgot about taking notes and noticing all that stuff and really just enjoyed myself. So that’s what I’m hoping my guests will do! And it WILL all come together, one way or the other! 🙂
