Yes!  HATE it. I didn’t even go dress shopping because of it.  It’s also one reason why we’re having a very small wedding (13 people).  Only people we’re very close to.  I’m still anxious about it though.  Especially walking down the aisle.  I feel kind of barfy just thinking about it.

Oh, and we’re all going to a restaurant afterwards for dinner.  I’m currently debating whether to change out of my dress or not, because I DO NOT want strangers in the restaurant even looking at me, much less making a big deal over me.  I will die.

My SO just does not understand. He’s like but… girls love getting lots of attention.

And while I’m very outgoing and a social person, I just get really embarrased when it’s a lot of people looking at me.

I kind of cringe at the thought of doing the whole garter thing

Me! Both my boyfriend and I are introverts, and actually a bit antisocial to tell you the truth. No wonder we get along so well. 😉 A traditional wedding with all the normal flair and well, traditions … like the bouquet toss, garter belt scenario, speeches, first dance, etc. would just be awkward torture for the two of us. So, we’re eloping, just the two of us to Alaska. A nice, quiet, private ceremony outdoors. Very natural!

@Wild_Treck:  We are exactly the same so that’s what we did, eloped and it was perfect!  No worrying about being the center of attention, etc.  It was exactly how we’d pictured it.

I did have to be the center of attention for the two showers I had in my honor, and it was a little awkward, but still lovely.

@foreverlovex:  Yup I am the same. Even in groups of say 6 people I don’t like the attention focused on me, but being in front of people is just so daunting! I hope I hold up okay for the ceremony… I sometimes get a bit teary from nervousness when I’m in front of groups of people.
