- Wedding: June 2012
So, I’m officially less than a year away from my wedding (364 days) and I just feel like I’m stuck in a rut. The only real decision that we’ve made is the venue, which we booked almost a year ago. I feel so indecisive over every little aspect of this wedding (the only think I know for sure, is that I want to get married). Anyone else having trouble making decisions? I feel as if I’m going around in circles. No decisions are being made, the more blogs, websites and magazines I look at, the more confused I get!
A couple things I’m struggling with….
Cake or cupcakes? I really like the thought of cake but I’m sure cupcakes would be cheaper and I’m sure they’d taste just as good, though cupcakes aren’t exactly what I had envisioned for my wedding day.
Light colored bridesmaid dresses vs black? I originally though black because i thought it was a universally accepted color. Most people have a black dress or if they had to buy it, they’ll wear a black dress again. Now, FI doesn’t like black, he says black is a man’s color (I don’t agree). Maybe black is too dark anyways but I don’t want to ask people to buy dresses that they won’t wear again. I’m ok with mismatched bridesmaid dresses, I actually like it better, but now I need criteria. When I was thinking black, well, black is black. There’s no room for confusion. If I have light colored dresses, the criteria has to be more than “light”. I was thinking “mutted colors” but that’s so general. I just don’t want my mismatched bridesmaids dresses to look like the circus came to town.
Too many beautiful wedding dresses to pick…. Not sure if I really want to spend the money on Allure C166 after changing my mind from Allure 8824. Or maybe I don’t like those ones at all, maybe I should keep looking. If I keep “looking” I’m going to keep looking until it’s too late to buy a dress!
Suit or tux for the men? I really like the idea of grey suits but I guess that would really depend on the bridesmaid dresses. FI is pushing for black tuxes (funny, since my girls can’t wear black dresses).
And who are these girls anyways, since I haven’t even asked my bridal party yet!!! I really need to decide on this, like ASAP! I should have done this a long time ago!!! Now I have people asking me and I don’t have answers….. Should I pick friends or family? I’m thinking familiy but I’d like to add one friend but that would make my side at 4 and his at 3 and he doesn’t like uneven sides….. Why does it really matter if they’re even or not???
Back to the cupcakes. I emailed my mother (who I LOVE dearly and has been a huge help to me) about cupcake toppers, since I’m really in love with cake toppers. She says that I need to forget the cupcake toppers and figure out what I’m going to do about favors. Favors, yes, sigh…. What about those favors??? Yes, I guess I might need those too.
Anyone one else going a little crazy from their wedding??? I think I might be heading to the loony bin this weekend. I can’t be the only one.
