  • Wedding: September 2015

Knowing WHEN to start certain things.  And almost using the “sooner the better” mentality.

With a wedding next September, and no official proposal yet, my SO and I start booking the big things just to get them out of the way – venues/caterer, room blocks, photographer, and soon the florist.  It’s amazing how many people are already saying that they cannot accommdate or they are already booked for our date.  

Also, I’ve been getting guest-list anxiety with a domestic destination wedding.  I’m trying to rate how loved we are… but some people who I would expect to come have told us they won’t, while others that I thought there was no way they would come are telling me they would like to be in the bridal party!  I have no idea what to expect with the strange family/friend dynamics we have.  It doesn’t help that my venue only holds so many people, and if I get anywhere near the maximum, we don’t have a dance floor.

Thank you for letting me vent.  I’m only at the beginning, but maybe that will help you 😉

Dealing with everyone else’s ideas/opinions. 

In almost all areas of my wedding, I researched vendors and came to a conclusion of the best option. Then went and visited that option with the involved parties (my parents, his parents) and every time they seemed to need to do and see all the research I previsouly did and find even more things to compare only to end up coming to the same conclsion that I had. complete frustrating waste of my time.
