- Wedding: October 2013
Hey Bee’s. To get this out of the way, I have Agoraphobia, which basically means I have a fear of being around big crowds and certain social settings, I get severe anxiety and can sometimes have panic attacks. I’m a pretty shy person, and I tend to thrive in smaller settings, which would make a 50 guest limit initimate wedding perfect for me. However, my Fiance recently showed me a guest list he put together and it’s well over 300. He says everyone on there has been of some “life changing” influence to him so it would really mean a lot to have them there..I tried to talk down the number a bit using budget as a reason but I felt selfish. I want to make him happy but at the same time I’m extremely uncomfortable with that many people. I originially wanted to elope with a few family members and friends but he was really adamant about having a wedding with everyone here.
I’m not sure how to cope with this. I know on this day the spotlight is supposed to be on me and my fiance but I hate calling even that much attention to myself.
Bee’s have any of you had any reservations, or nervousness over having alot of people there? How’d you get over, or get past the thought of people STARING at you?
