We decided on a Destination Wedding (Sweden), just to keep it small (around 30 people) and now it’s slowly growing + I have to do everything from afar. So, I definitely get you feeling! Some days I’m just thinking that it’s all crazy, all I want to do is to marry my best friend – we can do that up north in cottage country, just the two of us! Then I think about how sad that would make my grandma and I try to focus on the good stuff instead.

Hey! I don’t think you’re crazy! 

Wedding planning *is* way more stressful than I imagined. I am still excited to plan and have the wedding, but things have taken many turns away from what I always imagined my “dream wedding” to be, and I’ve had to talk myself down quite a few times (and cancel a dress order!)… (You’ll likely see a post from me about these very two things quite soon, as they’re big themes in my wedding life at the moment!)


That being said, my husband and I are already married, we did the city hall, small wedding thing about a year and a half ago and felt that we were missing the big celebration with friends and family.


I say do what you really feel is right, but after a LOT of consideration, especially considering you’ve got deposits on almost everything already, and this is (likely) what you *did* want before stress set in. Don’t do anything hasty, but go with your (well thought out) heart.

I am worried about feeling that way, to a certain extent! Thank goodness our venue has a ~200 person maximum. 

I feel like if we had a small wedding the idea of “financial stress” wouldn’t even be in the picture for a minute. But with ~200 guests, it might be a stretch, and all of the DIY elements start to seem a little more unreasonable. Sigh…

But I hope you start to feel better about your plans! It sounds like most of the big stuff is out of the way… maybe after you send out the Save-The-Date Cards you could take a couple months off from planning. :}
