Just wondering here.
I realized today that with 9 days to go, I’ve made a lot of decisions based on what ‘felt right’ at the time or a little while after thinking on it. Mostly, those decisions were the right ones and looking back I was glad I decided on them.
Has anyone else done this, were glad of it/regretted it?
Good decisions based on instinct for me:
no bridal party (I can’t tell you how much drama we avoided!)
hairstyle for the day of, etc
nothing really deep or too personal but I’m wondering if little decisions are better off made without thinking on them too much! I know it’s helped me!

yep, i have made many decisions, some are based on what is good and what is bad, some without any thinking. No matter if I think of it carefully I often regret the decision I made. Yep, I think it’s normal. And whatever the result is, I get the different answers to verify whether i am right or not. So i don’t know how to advice you, but nobody is right forever and never makes wrong decision in the life. Considering what you want and make the best decision for you good.

I have made a lot of decisions on how I’ve felt about things… so far… I think it’s a good thing!

Yeah I have been doing the same as well. With so many decisions you have to make during this process it is difficult to really analyze every one of them. Thankfully our instincts help us out from time to time.

The best decision I made wasn’t about any of the planning details (other than my overall goal to host a party that would be enjoyable) – it came on the day of the wedding day. I decided I would only focus on getting married and Darling Husband. Nothing else mattered. No detail AT ALL. It didn’t matter if things turned out different than I wanted, because it didn’t matter. I planned as much as I could and if things went wrong on the day – they just went wrong. It really helped me focus on what I was doing. I recall saying “whatever you feel is best” to most people when they asked me questions. 🙂 It’s not that I didn’t care or have an opinion, it just didn’t matter.

Pretty much every decision we have made has been a gut feeling. My biggest was my wedding planner. Found her online, never met her, never spoke with her, didn’t know anyone who knew her and I hired her! Best decision ever, she is awesome!
Also florist, caterer, venue, all gut feelings, dress, hair salon, officiant, DJ, baker, Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, guys suits. All gut choices. I don’t usually believe them, but I feel I am totally right on the mark with this stuff!
About the only thing I have researched and had planned was our photographer.

I am generally a very cautious person (in most cases, hyper-vigilant about EVERYTHING) so snap decisions are out of my comfort zone.
However, since meeting and subsequently marrying my husband, I have found myself more and more following my instincts a little bit more – with amazing results! Every instinctive decision I made as it pertained to the wedding (and everything else) has worked in our favor. The biggest of which being the decision to have a very small and intimate wedding! It was perfect for us! It just felt right and everything aftewards fell right into place!
I think when things are meant to be, they all just fall into place like puzzle pieces!

All through planning I had made these really natural, exciting decisions about the wedding ceremony. It came together quickly and easily. The reception, with its DIY projects and decorations, was a headache the whole time. It felt like the dumb thing would never come together.
My “gut feeling” that the truly beautiful parts about my wedding were the actual vows, and the people there with us, turned out to be 100% true. I never should have wasted so much time worrying over the pretties!
While they looked nice in the end, the headache projects were ribbon panels/ribbon table runners and DIY pocketfold invitations.

I think once the wedding day comes you just have to relax and focus on the most important part that you are marrying the love of your life, the rest of it is just trival! And the small things that “go wrong” no one will probably notice but yourself.
