That’s exactly the reason why I didn’t sweat any of the “small stuff”. I don’t notice stuff like that, like does it really matter that I hand printed my envelopes (vs. Proper labels) in my crappy handwriting? Nobody cares!!

nobody cares about your centrepieces/table clothes/fancy napkins/chair covers/etc, it’s nice if that’s what you want and need to create your vision, but don’t think for a second your guests will care beyond “oh that’s nice”.

Thank you for the reminder! I have this perfectionist mentality. I get super stressed out at the thought of something being inadequate, so to speak. I really need to chill out and just get what I like! No one really cares!

@star282:  Thanks for posting this! I got SO stressed when I realized I had spelled on of my FI’s relatives names on the Save the Date envelope (after sending it, of course). But maybe they didn’t even notice! I hope so anyway. 🙂

In general, though, your advice is REALLY good. I think about every little detail so much, and I need to realize that the overall effect is what matters, and that the most important thing is that we are getting married and our friends and family are there to support us!

@star282:  when my fi and I are debating if we need to do/have something we play the ‘recall’ game. We see if we can remember that aspect of anyone else’s wedding then ask his parents (in case it is a generational thing and they can recall). If none of us can remember, off the list it goes! 


We have cut so much stuff from the wedding that way.
