I’m going nuts. Why? I am being so indecisive about wedding colors. I get an idea in my head then I’ll look up BM dresses and the colors aren’t exactly what I want. I know that they can look different in person, but it’ll be another 4-6 months until us girls go look at dresses and such.
Gah, why is this so difficult for me?! Hah. I just want everything to be “perfect” and to match as well. I don’t want to pick a color (like a copper/rusty orange) and not be able to match it whatsoever.
This brings me to the question of what you found most difficult to plan/envision for your wedding?
PS: I’m getting married at the Smithville Inn in Smithville, NJ. My theme is going to be a vintage/brooches type of thing going on. The Smithville Inn has very dark wood and is over 300 years old. It’s perfect.

For me it was the guest list… more like getting my mom to cut it.

The guest list and the venue. Hard time with the guest list because my MIL was a PITA!! And hard time with the venue because we spent the first 5 months of our engagement trying to figure out where to get married!

The venue was the hardest for me as it’s very hard to find something exactly how you want it. The invites were also hard work and some went missing in the post.

My hormones must be out of whack today. I’m about to have a panic attack/cry over silly things when I know I have more time than usual. Yikes.

Hands down the venue is the hardest for my FI and I. We cannot pick a venue within our budget. Now we are debating cutting the guest list just so we are able to afford a venue we really want. My dress has been the easiest so far. It was literally the first wedding dress I tried on and I felt like it was made just for me (*swoon*).

The guest list!!! we know so many people and both come from large families. My dad has 7 siblings so I have a lot of 1st cousins and I’m close with all of them… it was hard keeping the guest list at 175

I voted theme, venue, guestlist. I just can’t seem to get these three to agree with eachother.

@bells: J’s father is 1 of 16 children. It’s sad to say this, but thankfully he only keeps in contact with a few of them. Could you imagine?

Well colours were pretty easy. I like pink and i like brown lol.
I never thought of having a theme so that was easy.
Hardest was where to have the ceremony. Luckily we asked the reception venue if we could have it there and they said yes. So there you go.
Right now I think invites. Not picking them out. Just getting around to assembling and sending out.

2) venue (mostly because of budget)
3) dress (because i’m plus sized and was terrified to even start looking)
beyond those things… the most emotionally hard part i think was trying to figure out how much i should care. like i’d get really into planning for a while and then i’d start to feel like i was dumb for spending so much time, energy, and MONEY on one day.

Its everything. I have to be involved and in control of every aspect. So I find myself having a to do list 5 miles long.. But I wouldnt have it any other way.

I think the hardest part is always deciding on the colors to use, and found if you keep it simple and limit it to two main ones and a third for small accents, it becomes much easier to narrow it down. You may be able to eliminate some colors very quickly when you can’t find a blessed thing to go with them!

I have had a pretty easy time settling on what I like; the hardest part has been getting everyone else to agree. There’s certain things I’ve wanted to do or not do that I’ve just had to let go of because my FMIL was horrified at the idea. (Like not having a guestbook. I honestly don’t care about one but she would die if we didn’t.) I wanted small flower arrangements in mason jars hung from the pews and she could not wrap her mind around mason jars not containing jams and pickled vegetables, so I let it go. And then some stuff I’ve really had to defend myself on more than I’d like- like absolutely NOT wanting satin bows hanging on the pews and not wanting any brightly colored flowers. I just wish if I said I wanted to do something or not do something, everyone else would go along because it’s not their wedding!

This is going to sound stupid, but the hardest part so far has been worrying about what to do with our beloved puppy girl before, during and after the wedding. We absolutely won’t board her, she can’t stay home alone overnight, and anyone we trust to watch her will be in or at our wedding. We also really wanted her to be IN the wedding ceremony, which is proving difficult as well.
Anyone have a similar problem?
