I just wanted a second opinion on my wedding situation. We’ve (mainly me) changed the venue, location and date several times. I didn’t know which dress I truly wanted which resulted in two purchased dresses but luckily one came back with a defect and I was able to return it & I keep looking at more because now i”m not sure if my dress that I have not is age appropriate (I’m 27) 🙁
Originally we planned our wedding for October in Indianapolis, and then switched it to April in Jamaica but do to family push back we may have to change the wedding to either June or July 2011 in Indianapolis so more family can attend.
I feel like I’m trying to please everyone and not myself and that’s why things keep changing. I’m told the engagement period is supposed to be the best part of it all but do to stress and changes unfortunately it hasn’t been all smooth sailing as I wish it was. I find myself saying a lot that “ I can’t wait for the whole thing to be done & be married already”.
Am I the only one out there who has done this/felt this way or have you guys had some of the same problems/changes along the way?

I have the same issue. We first planned on getting married in October 2011, but had to change the date to July because of certain family members not agreeing with our original date. I purchased my 1st dress and 5 months later, realized that I didn’t like it and I was WAY to influenced my certain family members. Thank God the bridal shop did an exchange for me; that was amazing! I have purchased my 2nd pair of shoes because I can’t make a decision! I have changed my flower ideas 3 times now. I am thinking of purchasing a new veil. lol I also exchanged my headpiece 2 times. lol The only thing I have been 200% sure of is my man! HaHa! I think it’s in a brides blood to be indecisive! 🙂 You and I will be just fine. I know what I need to do, STOP LOOKING! lol 🙂

No babe, you’re not the only bride. I just posted something a bit ago “1 month & 22 days and I’m stressin”
went through all the same things you’re going through and I’m saying the same thing to myself. ‘Can’t wait to be married so I can get my life back” and most of all, my sanity. 🙂
Thats why weddingbee.com is here!!!!!! 🙂 Hang in there, it gets better.

Girrrrrl, I am ***3/4****yes, 3/4 DONE with planning my wedding and am wanting to UP-ROOT the entire thing….maybe, I guess, I dunno. UGH!!
2 minutes after we got engaged (ha) FI and I decided that we were going to have an intimate, romantic, 2 person destination wedding on a private island in Jamaica. Just the 2 of us. All-inclusive vacation, wedding, and honeymoon package. Tours, water sports, food, even ALCOHOL included for a week. We negotiated with ULTRA EXPENSIVE island photographers and got the package and price we wanted (which I was very proud of myself for). We planned a send off party on a more local beach for 30 of our immediate family and best friends. Done and done Nothing left to do but finish paying and wait, right?
What happened you asked??!! Well, when looking for places to celebrate New Year’s we (more like **I**) came across the SWANKIEST, most LUXE, most GLAMOROUS hotel I have ever seen. And nowwwwwwwww, guess who wants a traditional wedding. I don’t know what to do….!!!
