@citrisgirl:  Um, I was in tears 2 weeks in to the engagement over venues and date selection.  There always seems to be one large hurdle at the start but it almost helps.  Because once you get it sorted, everything else seems like a breeze in comparison.  You’ll make it work.  🙂

@citrisgirl:  For us the big thing so far has been that we confirmed the date (which is a Wednesday evening) with the only out of town guest (FFIL) before we set the date because if it’d be a big inconvenience for him to attend we would’ve jumped ahead a couple of months… he was fine with it a couple of months ago.

We found out not too long ago that he is now having a big vacation with his new wife and our wedding date is right smack dab in the middle of this planned trip! You can imagine how FI felt about all of this considering he never sees his father and to him his dad coming was going to be the highlight of the night (besides getting married of course).

I just keep on reminding myself that this is just a single day in our life together and we can’t be letting every little detail stress us out more than we need it to!

I think it’s normal for many people not to show up at DWs. Honestly the fewer people the better IMO. I was so nervous at my wedding and was actually glad that my husband’s family decided not to come after all (long story, no hurt feelings or anything) when it upset me a bit during planning.

It is about you and your SO, and it’ll be beautiful. If some people can’t make it then too bad… but if the most important ones can, that’s all that really matters.

My break down was about a month in, I had a ton of venders telling me they were booked on the same day.  And by a ton, I had 5.  I went home and had a good 4 hour cry fest and uttered the words “No one is going to have our wedding date free”  I had everyone booked by the end of the week…

If you love the DB dress, get that one!

My Mom and BMs wanted me to wear a mermaid. But I wore my MASSIVE ballgown, and lived EVERY second!

And everything will work out!
