Before I met my FI I used to picture my wedding day, the setting, the dress, the cake etc. Now that I’m engaged and soon to get married, I don’t pay that much attention to picking the dress or how fancy the reception is going to be. I’m getting married in my FI’s country, and he’s there right now and will be the one actually making all the preparations with some input from me, but I’m not that involved, not because I don’t care, but because I know I will like it and love it no matter what and because I will marry someone I love. I don’t even have a dress yet, I will rent it 1-2 weeks before the big day.
Am I the only one thinking like that?

@ALazi: i am going very low key and simple on the wedding, and anything that my FI or mother/FMIL come up with, i’m like yes! that’s fine! less stress – the most important part is that i’m marrying my favorite person on the planet 🙂

- Wedding: March 2014 - A castle!
For me all that stuff changed when I realized how much everything COSTS! Wow!! I had to step back and figure out what was important to me.. and when I realized it all comes down to marrying the man I love, I threw much of my “dream wedding” out of the window.

@ALazi: You’re not alone! Our wedding is going to be very simple and my FMIL and FSIL have thankfully taken the reigns on a lot of the planning, which I appreciate because I have generalized anxiety disorder and loathe planning events.
I’m excited to see all the people who will be there, because we live far from all our friends and family, and I’m SO EXCITED to be marrying him, but I’m pretty meh on the subtle details of the day.
Our motto has been “It’s going to be fine. It’s all going to be fine.” which has been very helpful when unexpected things happen. It’s all going to be fine!

- Wedding: May 2014 - Royalton White Sands
I started thinking that way eventually. It was early enough and I hadn’t paid for anything yet, so we decided to just do a weddingmoon in Jamaica. Best decision ever.
