I sit and look through all these fab diy projects and see everyones beautiful venues and i just think my ideas and everything seem a bit crap and i’m worried my wedding isn’t going to be as gorgeous as the others you see.
Am i crazy or do other people feel this way.

@nearly-mrs-R: We have worked really hard to come up with a lot of non-traditional, really creative ideas. Yet, I’m constantly worried we need more, more, more. I also keep saying that I don’t believe it will all come together and be perfect until I see it with my own eyes.

I think i’m just a little disheartned coz i have no receprtion venue at the mo i’ve gone through 3.
My first one the lady pretty much lied to me about how many people the room would hold comfortably, she said 150 with room for a large dance floor, turns out that was rubbish it could comfortably hold 100 but 150 if i used square tables…. i hate square tables, and she said well we could put some of your guests in the other room upstairs so that was a big no no.
My second venue closed down.(but has since reopened so i need to speak to them)
My third venue is a cute little basement bar but my grandad has been having mobility problems that he hasn’t told anyone about and he can’t manage stairs and that place has a lot of stairs and i am not having my grandad be in pain so thats out.
So here i am venueless it’s like the universe doesn’t want me to get married.

@nearly-mrs-R: Mine will not be overly floralicious and no chivari chairs and blah, blah, blah BUT I am relying on my guests being dazzled by the B&G’s happiness and love.
I will feed them well, put on a show and hope they all leave smiling. I am NOT DIYing anything aside from welcome bags (if I choose to do that… ugh!).

@nearly-mrs-R: Ah, yes. You won’t feel settled until you have closure to that then. I get that, too. I was coo-coo until I got a venue at that. Then, I was coo-coo until we got it paid off… It doesn’t end, but it will get better as you make milestones. Another bee posted some advice about the planning phase and one of the lines of advice was:
“Anything that can go wrong will. People/vendors that you expected to be able to count on will prove anything but.”
Just try to let it roll off and keep pushing forward. FI and I went to specific days on our calendar and said “ok, this day, we figure this out… No exceptions.” And, there have been a few days added to put out fires. Try not to stress about what you can’t change, and use it as a learning experience to make sure it doesn’t happen the next time. : )
