Why do people always want their weddings to be the best? I tend to hear people brag about how many of their guests tell them theirs was the best they’ve been to. Is there a natural desire for a bride to host the best wedding? Why do we become so competitive sometimes to outdo everyone else? The thought that I have to throw ‘the best’ wedding is making me feel depressed 🙁

I think part of the issue is that people spend so much time and effort on their weddings. And people naturally want to be good at what they do.
That being said, you definitely don’t need to throw “the best” wedding. My personal view is that although there are some individual touches, weddings tend to follow a general pattern. Thus, what will be unique about yours is that it involves you and your fiance. If you remember to invite only guests who genuinely care about you and your fiance, it will be “the best” for them, regardless of what you do otherwise.

@2dBride: Thank you so much for the reply, especially the last sentence. It’s hard not to get down and be burdened by the pressures of throwing a great party on a limited budget. I’m afraid the guests will compare it to others they’ve been to which may have been grander and definitely bigger budget. I do want to the throw best wedding possible within my means but I don’t want people to draw comparisons as that’s too stressful!
And I don’t understand why brides tend to feel like they have to outdo all the previous ones..I sometimes feel that way:( why can’t we just support one another and be happy for the next girl!
