Ha I think you are just getting a little worked up, don’t fret!!! I’ve been saying to my FI that I wish we could have like 5 weddings because I have so many different visions in my head, even though I LOVE what we envision and are planning for ours. You can’t base your wedding on someone else’s, don’t do that to yourself! You can only go by what you want and the budget you have to work with and what makes you and your FI happy. I’m sure yours will be wonderful and everything you wanted, and you will be a beautiful bride 🙂 And don’t forget, you’re getting married!!

Hang in there, quit looking at that wedding lol!! *hugs*

I totally get what you mean. I’m afraid that people are going to show up at my wedding and be like “wth is all this stuff?” in terms of my decor choices. Or that my vision isn’t going to transfer to reality well or look nice in pictures. I feel like those wedding photographed on SMP have so much stuff going on but look so cohesive and beautiful, while my reception is going to look very minimal and unorganized with a lack of focus.

Girl I think you aren’t loony!  I hope that all my little details come off perfect but if they don’t one thing will remain the same… I’ll be married 🙂

Also, one thing to keep in mind is that we only see a few pictures from the wedding and those are the best of group of photos.

I don’t think you are alone in your opinion on SMP.  I feel the same way!  Plus, I am having a ballroom wedding in Chicago, and they rarely feature those.  It makes me feel like I am missing out a little just because I am not getting married in the middle of a forest or a beautiful garden.  My favorite is when they post mock-receptions with a single table in a field or something similar.  Everything is perfect!  How realistic is that?  Not everyone lives near farms and spacious parks or has hours to set up the reception space.  Me?  I am too much of a control freak to face the possibility of rain on an outdoor wedding.

I’ve felt the same way too, as I slave over my backyard to make it wedding worthy. It feels like it will never be as pretty as suchandsuch wedding; then I have to remind myself that, duh, it won’t look like the pictures, because they’re pictures. The majority of wedding design blogs post detail shots…the weddings don’t actually look like that.

So, taking that wedding you posted for example: it’s hard to tell it’s in a parking garage because they never give you a full-on shot of the space. Nor do we see the guests. We get a really jilted view of reality.

How annoying is it, though, that we’re trying to live up to these unrealistic standards? With a few good photos, anyone’s wedding can look like a million bucks!
