I’m so sick of wedding planning I could scream!!! I’m tired of all the little details.
Dont get me wrong. I am so thankful to be getting married to the love of my life. It was so fun & exciting to pick all the big details together. The venue, cake, bridal party, me picking the dress etc.
My issue is that all the little details of planning the reception etc is sucking all the fun & excitement out of being engaged. Anyone have any tips on how to bring the focus back to the groom and I and our awesome family and friends instead of the color of flowers?
Thank you bees!

Pick your flower color and never think of it again. Go basic with your decor, it does not need to be a smorgasbord of amazement. Classic/timeless may be better for you than dripping in prisms and candles. If you don’t want it, don’t do it. If someone else is bugging you, tell them they’re free to take over (sarcastically). Little details don’t matter unless you’ve neglected everything else. No one will remember what color your napkins were or how nice the menu looked on a charger plate. So don’t worry about it.

You got a maid of honor who knows you like the back of her hand (expression of course) or just someone in general who knows everything you’d like?
If they don’t mind doing it, you could probably ask them to just bulk all the little stuff for you and just give you a few options they thought you’d love and you can get all your stuff done super fast.
It helps a lot when you have someone who knows you so well because they know exactly what you like and it’s less stress for you and it kinda fun for them because they get to do their own mini version of wedding planning 🙂

I don’t have any tips but I know how you feel! I was lying in bed thinking about all the little details I still need to work on and ended up just panicking and sobbing and waking up my FI at 1am lol. I think at the end of the day so long as you have good food, drink and music at the reception people will be happy! My issue is I want that pinterest wedding but I haven’t found the time to organise those details.

ct2015 : I would love to if fiancé would agree. Also we’d have to change everything & lose a lot of $. I think we’d regret it if family & friends weren’t there. I really wish we would have done a court wedding.

- Wedding: San Francisco City Hall
I am having a smallish wedding 20-30 guests and found a vendor that pretty much does it all. I just chose what I want online with a click and the rest is in their hands. I really didn’t want to stress over my wedding day or go into debt.

I would agree on the month of coordinator. I was waking up in the middle of the night for the last couple/few weeks making to do lists of things we needed to get done and then plugging away at them during those final days. But having a coordinator helped immensely so that people weren’t asking me questions on the day of.
