Besides the groom!
We bees are a fairly indecisive lot. Even when we know what we want, we tend to poll or look for reassurance. Anyway, I just saw Ms Terrapin’s post that she finally picked her processional music, and it reminded me that even though I was never a “day dream about my future wedding” kind of kid/teen/young adult, that is the one thing I have wanted for my someday wedding since I was at least 15. Maybe younger. I’ve had my processional picked out! (And cuz I know you’re all dying of suspense, it’s Sir Gustav Holst’s “Jupiter, Bringer of Jollity,” middle movement at 3:05). Now, figuring out the logistics of having this in our field is another matter altogether. I can’t afford a full symphony? Damn.
What wedding planning aspect(s) have you known 100% without a doubt or hesitation or hive poll?

I never had much of a defined picture of my wedding in my head, which was a shock to my FI when we got engaged, because he assumed I had the whole thing planned already. The one thing that I knew had to be a huge part of my wedding was dancing. I LOVE dancing. Also, my FI and I knew that our first dance would be to “when you say nothing at all”. Other than that, we’ve had to make it up as we went along!
(and I sometimes spent too much time thinking about the details like processional music!)

I think that unless you have had it entirely planned out, there is always that one thing that just sticks out as “we have to do this!”
If we didn’t overthink the details, we wouldn’t be on the hive!

I knew that I had to get married in my hometown. I love its historic charm and the downhome feel. I also wanted live music rather than a DJ at the reception. We are doing both. =)

I always wanted chiavari chairs, before I even knew they had a name LOL. Sad part is once I saw the prices and the quality of the chairs being rented I had to give them up 🙁 It still breaks my heart!

I seem to be the most indecisive person about the wedding. It drives my FI crazy. I made a comment to him this past weekend about something; of course it was something that I was changing my mind about. He just agreed with me, and when I questioned why he didn’t have anything to say about it, he just said that he knows I will change my mind about it again, so he has just decided to agree to whatever and be surprised when I finally decide on whatever it is.
There are two things that I wanted since I was a little girl. I wanted to have as much of a princessy wedding as possible with a ballgown and a castle. My gown is a ballgown with the fullest crinoline that I could find and I am getting married at a castle.

airythia — I never knew what they even were till I got into wedding world!
JoJo — The dress has been one of the hardest decisions for me, so I envy that you were certain of your bridal look, to borrow the bee phrase.
JennyChicago — They are so pretty; I’m sorry you won’t be able to have them! That is what I am afraid of with the music in a field; it sucks that the one thing we liked best might be the most impossible.
noritake — Ohmigosh, I almost said that you are “having it your way” and then I realized that is a fast food hamburger slogan so I am changing my reply to you to say, good for you for seeing your dreams realized! 😉

I always wanted to get married at my parents’ house. I was also pretty keen on a brunch reception from the get-go.

I always thought if I ever got married it would be just us on the beach, very intimate. And so it is! It’s nice because it was also his dream wedding.

I always dreamed of a church wedding.

I always knew I wanted a summer wedding and that I wanted a cathedral veil and blusher. But other than that I heavily weighed my options on every decision I made about the wedding.

- Wedding: September 2010 - Fort Pond Lodge
I always wanted to get married by the water, and that’s pretty much all I knew. Funny, it’s pretty much still all I know for sure! I should work on that.

I never had any visions of my wedding as a kid – it’s not something I’ve been planning forever. But as soon as we decided to get married, I knew I wanted to do it outside. 🙂
