dang I worried about everything!  I guess maybe the transportation was the thing that was the least stressful.  For weeks I did worry about whether we’d be able to get a classic car.  That ended up falling through though – people from all the classic car clubs in town just didn’t want to be hired for the day due to insurance reasons.  We booked a limo at the last minute and it turned out fine.  I didn’t have to worry about that at all.

Sigh, I wish there was somethng that i didn’t have to worry about (or maybe I don’t).  LOL..I am so picky and like to do things on my own, so maybe this is best for me and everyone involved, lol.


Edit: Oh, I got one… the venue comes with tables and chairs and a day of Coordinator!!

The DJ. My FI’s friend is a professional DJ and gave us a crazy cheap price to do the wedding. Also, we don’t have to worry about linens, plates, silverware, any of that, the reception site is all-inclusive. So, that’s been a relief.

Our venue is a package deal so hopefully i dont have much to worry about. Before when I was planning the whole big wedding I was so worried about everything because you have to find and put together your own vendors.

I’m realy lucky, having a coordinator that I’ve been working with for the last few months. I am not at all worried about dealing with vendors. She is all over it. Like a lioness.

I am also *almost* 100% not worried about the look. My MOH’s wife is kind of playing the role of my stylist. The only reason something could go wrong is if I don’t express it correctly and say something wrong. Her taste is good enough to overcome most mistakes I could make.

Finally, not worried about my ceremony music. It was important to me, so I splurged a little for a really accomplished guitarist. He’ll be able to handle pretty much any contingency.

I’m not really concerned about our band. I trust them to play what they feel will get the crowd on the dance floor. I’m not giving them a list of songs to play or anything, just planning on letting them do their thang.

I was kind of overbearing in that I wanted to be involved in every detail, but the thing I worried about the least was the set up of the reception hall, because the venue hired a site coordinator right before our wedding.  I didn’t really have a choice anyway, and it wasn’t perfect, but it was one thing I let go of!

We’re doing a tented reception, and one aspect I thankfully do not have to worry about is the tent rental/setup or lighting (we’re doing chinese lanterns lit with LED throwies – a very complicated process!). The reception is in my in-laws backyard, and they are handling that whole aspect. I’m so thankful, because that is one part that would really stress me out!

It was the DJ for us. We picked a family friend/relative that has done multiple family weddings and events so we already knew what we were getting in to. It was nice to have something not to worry about.

The ceremony.  My Mother-In-Law is an Episcopal priest so she booked her church for us, hired the organist, made all the arrangements.  I never even had to talk to anyone.  She married us. 

I also didn’t have to worry about the bridal party b/c they are all awesome.

I picked the photographer first and know him “professionally” so I don’t have to worry about him at all.

The DJ is FI’s friend whose a professional DJ

Flowers to an extent because FI’s mom is a florist – So while she wants my input I really don’t care. I still have to approve everything though, but I wish she would just have fun and do whatever she wants 🙂

Cake – Our friend does cakes… I’ll show her some ideas and tell her to have fun. It’s her gift to us.

I (thought) I didn’t have to worry about the site setup (chairs, tables, etc) because I sent my venue my plan ahead of time so they would have it all set up and I wouldn’t even have to worry about it…WRONG.  The venue coordinator was MIA on our wedding day, and my Darling Husband arrived to find the ceremony chairs set up wrong, so he had the best man find some people to help fix them before I saw it (love him BTW).  Then after the ceremony when I looked at the reception room, I noticed they didn’t follow my chair plan for the tables!!  GRR!!  So when I should have been getting pictures done, I was telling my SILs and Maid/Matron of Honor where everything was supposed to go so they could reset the chargers, chairs, and place settings!  I’m still ticked off about that.  The ONE THING I left to someone else got screwed up.  And people wonder why I’m a control freak…
