When it comes to my wedding, I am the most indecisive person on the planet. It takes me forever to make a decision, and then when I do I get so relieved that it is over, but then end up changing my mind about it again all over again and the cycle starts all over. I changed my mind on the bridesmaid dresses twice, changed the stores I was registered in, and then continue to keep changing the items on my list daily. I have changed the flowers that I discussed with the florist, and basically ,I can’t make up my mind on anything and keep second guessing all my decisions. It is so annoying and I am getting so frustrated at myself! Why does planning a wedding have to involve so many seemingly unimportant decisions that have to be made so far in advance…
Sorry for the long vent!

That’s exactly the problem – you make the decision and then there are months and months to think about it! I am basically refusing to even look at other options after the decision. No more dress shopping, no more invitation samples… it’s really hard though. But I know I will drive myself crazy if I keep looking at other options after making the first choice.
The craziest part is that I know exactly what I want – its only when it comes right down to time to order it that I get waffly. I have also instructed my mom and my sister and my FI to make me stick to my decisions once they are made. The remind me of all the reasons I picked what I did, and that helps me when I get doubtful about whether its the right choice after all.

so i’ve made a practice of talking to my FH about any new ideas that i have…he then reminds me (as if i don’t already know) that we’ve talked about centerpieces (or whatever it is) like 5 times before and that we have already made a decision…or he’ll remind me what’s really important, that we’re getting married and our friends and family will be there to witness it and i snap back…that doesn’t stop me from looking at things but it does make me realize how obsessive i’ve become…

One place I totally screwed my budget- I was indecisive… I spent over $100 trying to decide on invitations and what not, then ended up going back to my ORIGINAL decision… Then the dress thing. Oh gosh… Seriously. I bought a $12 dress online and it just needed a few alterations, but I was like ohhhh but I don’t LOVE it… Spent over $300 on materials and patterns and the zipper broke as I was putting it on… and I ended up wearing the $12 dress after all!
My biggest decision- ask your FH and then stick to the decision. Everything will come together! I promise!
