As my wedding gets closer, I find myself becoming more and more paranoid about certain things. Lately, my biggest fear is that no one will come to the reception! The reason being for that fear is that my ceremony and reception are in two different locations. My church is a smaller church and while it holds 240 ppl for the ceremony, the reception area is very tiny. So, we’re having our reception at a venue about 10 minutes away from the church. For some reason, I’m afraid our guests won’t want to come! I hate to spend all that money on a DJ and food, etc for no one to come lol.
Am I just being paranoid? lol
So, bees, what are some of the things you’re worrying about as your wedding approaches?

Mines the opposite! I’m afraid that some of my family members that I don’t get along with will crash. I loath them so much that I really wish I could tell other family members don’t to even show pictures to them.
But other than that, I am not worried about anything else.

Drama is my biggest fear, My sister has a tendency to create drama where ever she goes.

I am terrified that no one in my family will show up (approx. 100 ppl), or that people will complain about the reception (we are paying for everything ourselves, and with a guest list of 225 family only, we decided to go with a champagne and cake reception)…it says right on the invitation that its a champagne and cake reception, but I’m worried people won’t understand and expect a full meal.

1. That I won’t fit into my dress.
2. That it’s going to storm like crazy during our outdoor reception!

@MsSassy – Add that to one of my worries as well, there are certain family members I worry about at mine also!
@tksjewelry – I hope your wedding is drama free! 🙂
@K8SK8- I actually just went to a wedding this past weekend that had a “light” reception as well and thought it was lovely. I’m sure your guests will have no problem with it!
@jduck – Keeping my fingers crossed for you!

I agree with pp, I think they are likely to show up because receptions are the “fun” part, but I would worry that they didn’t enjoy the reception and want to leave early.

@CattyMN608: I was worried about the same things!! I tried real hard not to gain wait while i was in Aruba the first couple of days up to the wedding date! I did fit in the dress (like a glove) but I totally splurged after that and still kinda am!
And not to mention that it rained hard the day before our BIG DAY, so I was worried about it raining on our beach ceremony!

(1) People won’t show up (especially since many of them are traveling long distances)
(2) It will rain during my outdoor wedding/reception
(3) I won’t fit into my dress

I’m worried our November wedding will be rained out – Spring in our area is always a bit iffy… I’m worried that our Ipod reception will be lame, I’m also freaking out that I’m gonna look chunky in our photos. OOH and the big one – I’m worried our venue won’t be finished with their renovations before the day and that we’re gonna have to have the reception in a marquee…. that would SUCK!

@nurselindsey: I think you will be ok. A wedding is about family and friends coming together to celebrate your commitment to eachother. People will WANT to be there to help you celebrate. I think you will be just fine 🙂
I am worried that it will rain and that people will think that our wine and champagne only reception is boring…where I come from, it is almost always open bars with hard liquor.

RAIN!! Outside ceremony in April. We have a back up plan but it would be so nice to not have to use it!! Other than that, I’m trying really hard not to worry about anything else. I do freak out once in a while about, “what if no one has fun?” But FI reassures me that with our food, drinks, music, and guests, they won’t have a choice!

i am DEATHLY afraid of attendance. we have a small chapel that seats only 120 – thats IT and thats pushing it. so i hope everyone has a seat.
then we have a ballroom for the reception…. so its huge, so i hope everyone comes!
i just am afraid that no one will show up and i will be all alone, spending money on all this stuff for nothing.
that and folks will think my wedding is cheap. *sigh*
oh and falling …. or being late to the ceremony… or the mini bus not showing up for the shuttle.
or my flowers getting stuck in traffic on their way to the ceremony since my mom insisted on getting them from our hometown not from where we are getting married…
oh and drama. afraid of drama. and kids crying thru my ceremony….
oh and being broke….
I. AM. A. MESS.
and i am suffering in silence! thank GOD for the hive!!!!

I’m afraid someone will get drunk and embarass themselves/us.

I hear you on the attendance thing, but my fiance’s family live overseas, even though it is really cool lots of them are coming there is a part of me that is worried if ALL of them come then the cost is going to skyrocket!
