For me it’s the photography! Photography is the only decision I feel like I’m being bridezilla-ish about. I’m having a hard time finding someone that I really like/trust to take my photos, and no one seems to understand. They all keep saying that there will be plenty of people with personal digital cameras and I should pick a professional photographer and it will be fine. The problem is, I have a very specific idea of what I’m looking for, (but don’t have an unlimited budget lol), and I can’t see myself budging!
What part of your wedding are you having a hard time deciding on?!

The honeymoon! It’s all SOO expensive, and there’s a part of me that doesn’t want to bother with it at all, since we can’t have a dream European vacation. Plus my job has been kind of in limbo, like not sure how much longer I’ll have it, so that strains things a lot.
Photography was hard to pick too, but thank God I got that settled months ago.

We haven’t really made any wedding plans yet. In fact, I’m not even engaged yet. However, I think our biggest decsion will be the town we decide to live in. He lives in Illinois and I live in Missouri. We will def have to make a compramise somewhere.

Photography is DAMN hard. There are just SO many photographers and I find myself find evening the minutest downsides to every photographer now, and those tiny downsides can be hard to weigh against each other. Also, invites. I really can’t make up my mind about them. They aren’t that important to me, but I’m still having a hard time narrowing down what I want! I have a long time though, with my wedding not till Jan 2012.

Photography was my easiest decision but I know I just happened to luck out with that. My toughie is food- What kind and from where? Bleh

i think it will be the photography, the band and the dj. I haven’t started really looking for any of them (just casually browsing the internets here and there) yet, but i know they are all going to be toughies!!

Ours is definitely our ceremony and reception venue. We’ve probably gotten information on one bazillion venues and none of them have seemed quite right! It’s a good thing we are planning on a long engagement because I don’t think we could have done it much sooner.

@veganglam–I’m glad I’m not the only one having photography issues. It’s so hard to decide!
@lpcutipie–You and I are opposites. The food was probably the easiest decision for us because the Fiance LOVES mexican food.
@MissNewYork–That must be frustrating! We got lucky because FI’s dad has a beautiful piece of land that we are using for the ceremony and reception. If we did not have that option, it would have been a tough decision for us as well. I never wanted to have my wedding at a place that people had been to multiple events at before, and I would definitely have stressed about the location being “us”.
Good luck to everyone as you continue your planning!

Favors! how silly right? i dont know why it even matters. We thought of chocolate covered wedding strawberries (tux and dress) but then found out how much that would cost! NO WAY! hehe then i wanted mini yankee candles..too expensive too. ugh! i just dont know! too tough!
I am thinking about skipping them all together……..

Right now, it is picking a date! Once we get that down, I think it will be photography. We made the mistake of falling in love with a photographer well out of our budget. Now, everything we see gets compared to them.

I am having a hard time with my dress. The dress I bought online from Perimart.com is dreadful! to say the least..I had to take it to seamstress here in New Husband and low and behold she has to remake the whole gown. The seamstress said to me, ” Can you sell it and buy another?” Cry…Anyway I am not sure if I want to have her remake the whole thing or not. I am not in love with it right now but I think its is because it is such a disaster. Decisions, decisions..

Photography is hard, but I firmly believe you have to just go with your gut. I was very picky about it but basically I just did a ton of research to find all the photographers in my area and in my price range, then started looking at slide shows. One of them just spoke to me more than the others. There was nothing I could point to really… she was the “the one.”
Our hardest decision is kids v. no kids. Since we got engaged we have said we didn’t want kids at the wedding for several reasons. We’re trying to keep the event small, we’re on a tight budget, and neither of us are “kid people.” Most of my family seems to be taking it okay (and the few that might have issues I’m not really that concerned about bc I think they’ll get over it)… but there is one person on my FI’s side that might not come if we don’t allow kids and its really important to us that he be there.
