Honey, there are a million things that could drive us crazy if we let it.  Be thankful you have a beautiful venue that’s all paid for.  There’s no use in thinking about “what ifs” anymore.  It’ll only drive you crazy.  Trust me 🙂

I feel the exact same way you do. I’m so excited to have all our family and friends together in a place that’s special to us as a couple. I’ve realized that’s all that matters (which you said you do too) However, it’s okay to love your venue, even if you may have been able to find a cheaper one. Our venue is the most expensive aspect of our wedding but I wouldn’t trade it for all the tea in China (I’ve wanted to get married at the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens since I was in high school) Thats what started your vision and it’ll be the perfect place to celebrate with everyone you love. Just look forward to the day 🙂

The venue is NOT a little detail!  I can understand not spending $300 on shoes or $1000 on invitations, but the venue is pretty important and if you love it, it’s worth it. 

But yes, my dad is contributing the bulk of the money and I feel like a mooching hag 99% of the time.  :/

My grandparents paid for our wedding and I also felt guilty about that. However, it was all worth it at the wedding. My husband made a lovely toast to my grandparents letting everyone know that our beautiful wedding was all due to them. Then my husband continued on by talking about how generous my grandparents are and insisting that everyone should stop to talk to them and thank them for the awesome party sometime during the night. I thought it was really classy of my husband to do that and so did our guests, because they all did stop by my grandparent’s table to introduce themselves and thank them! It was very special and I could tell my they felt appreciated. And of course we (hubby and I) thanked them profusely and told them how much we loved them.

As for the details, I agree. When I first started planning I was all about Pinterest. About a year into planning I realized that my wedding was getting too complicated. Our wedding was pretty simple compared to many beautiful weddings I see on here and on Pinterest, but it was a good representation of us and of my family and our guests are still going on and on about how awesome it was!!!
