I usually think alot about something before I buy it, or make it, or order it, or decorate more so if it involves a big purchase and I want to shop around etc … but I seem to be over the top now that it comes to decisions about the wedding. We have a venue and I have decided on a dark plum/eggplant and a lime color green with ivory. So I finally think I am done choosing colors. I have seen tons of inspiration and I have moved on to trying to design a wedding invite and when i get something on paper that I think I love .. well in a day I question it over and over again… I had a mock up done of an invite with a green pocket card and an ivory insert with the purple writing and my friend hated it! She doesn’t like the color combo at all. I still like the color combo but now am questioning my original sketch.
I hate this! Anyone else like this? has it been easy for you to make decisions?

Oh man, I have second guessed everything! Except the groom that is. 🙂

I’m with August15Bride. There wasn’t one thing that I questioned, except of course my choice of groom. I think it’s only natural. You’re making a lot of decisions.

I’ve done exactly the same thing. I was sooooo excited about designing my own invites. I would create "the one" and then be disappointed with it a few days later. I had the perfect dress and then in a couple of weeks I would change my mind.
I think I finally learned that I need to make a decision and then move on. Once the decision is made, there’s no going back. Do I LOVE my invites? No, but they’ll do.

I’m so burnt out in with making decisions anymore that I literally had to ask the hive what to have FOR LUNCH. So i’m with you. I can’t make ONE MORE decision!

I can’t make a decision to save my life and it all started with picking the date! I just have to do it quick and hope I won’t regret it later, which I always..ALWAYS do. But I’m a compulsive worrier and want the wedding to be absolutely perfect. As long as we both show up in the end thats all that really counts right? I hope it gets easier, I’m sure it will.

The closer you get, the less you second guess! You’re just excited to check something off that ever growing list

ejs4y8… I have to say YOU ARE RIGHT.. I feel like I need to get as much done early so I won’t have to worry or stress about it later. Instead I am stressing about it now!

I feel the same way! I second guess everything. I want to make "the right" decision for everything and it’s really hard for me to see that there is more than one right choice. I’m used to doing a ton of research on big purchases so it’s really hard for me to just pick something without fully considering all other options.
I’m slowly learning that it’s impossible to reseach all options for every wedding decision without going completly insane!

Honey that’s the story of my life. Unless the choice is outstandingly clear I will second and third guess over every detail. I spent months trying to find the right dress and I still made a really poor choice in where I got it from. Sigh!

I am notorious for not being able to make a decision! It’s just who I am, I just cannot do it.
However, I am solidly in love with the dress!!! That is about the one thing that I’m not second guessing, and never have.

I have too many ideas! I must have changed the color scheme three times, dress options at least three times, and gone through 500 pairs of shoes before I settled on my pair!

I agree with what someone up top said — the closer you get, the quicker you make your decisions. I went through the torture of indecisiveness earlier in the process, and you kind of need to go through it to be able to learn how to make decisions about such a big day. You start to learn when something just "feels" right, and when you don’t need to keep looking. I did that with my wedding dress — I went to just about every place in the NY metro area, I must have tried on 200 dresses. But when I picked mine out, I realized that I kind of knew all along, I just needed to get it out of my system! Now that I’m only three months away from the big day, the decisions are getting easier because you start to see what a RELIEF it is once you’ve made them! 🙂 Good luck!
