Hahaha, I hide my crazy very well, but somedays it just comes out! Right now I am stressing about my nephew at our wedding. He is a devil. His parents hardly pay attention to him, he screams and whines ALL.THE.TIME and he is ALWAYS getting into things. Don’t get me wrong, I have children. Very well behaved children, most of the time. But my nephew is never well behaved and he cries more than he talks. I have nightmares of him ruining my ceremony. I’m so crazy that I am actually considering sitting down with my future BIL’s girlfriend and explaining that the second her son starts freaking out during the ceremony I want him out of there

haha, I feel you on that one… I was majorly stressing the other day about lots of little details, and my Fiance thought I was nuts when I was so stressed about trying to figure out a schedule for how the day was going to go & the reception.  

Now that pretty much all the big picture things are taken care of (cake, dj, ceremony, reception, photographer, dress, Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses), all the little things are taking over & stressing me out.. ie:

-the schedule of the day/timeline of reception

-where to order tuxes from, whether we should have all the guys pick them up in St Louis or do it at a chain (ie mens wearhouse) where they can pick them up where they live & bring them.. There’s only 1 place in StL that will do a free groom’s try-on for the tuxes, do we order from them even though the sales lady in charge is super pushy? When will we even get a chance to both be back in StL at the same time to even do the grooms try on?

-do we do the rehearsal thurs or fri night? Do we do it at 5,6,or 7? Do we have the rehearsal dinner near the church or near the hotel?

-DId we block off enough hotel rooms?  If our reception site has an event booked Fri night & we can’t set up then, who is going to deliver all the centerpieces that morning to the place so they can set it up?

-How are the BMs and Groomsmen going to get from the hotel to the ceremony? Since we’re doing a limo bus deal, none of them will be driving back to the reception (a couple mins from hotel) so I dont want them to have to leave their cars there.  Do I try to have my brothers go pick everyone up? How are we going to get 12 people there in 1 trip? If my brothers do pick them up, how early do they leave? 

-If the ceremony is at 12, and our photographer will be there starting at 11, what time do I need to have the guys there so they have time to get ready but without crossing paths as I’m getting there.

Sooooo many little details driving me crazy.. just trying to take it 1 step at a time!

haha I am sure I will be when the time comes…I’m like that now without a wedding to plan yet. 

Couldn’t sleep the other night thinking that I needed to get my dogs tag changed to my new number. Seriously, Could. Not. Sleep. Which to be perfectly honest is stupid because my dog never goes outside without me and even then it’s in our gated backyard. Anxiety is a b.

No, not everyone will come (probably).  And not everyone comes to the church -they only go to the reception.  We invited over 180 and ended up with 120 (but that’s a little low I think.  I could have been very happy at 100 though.)

Yes, I completely understand!! How on earth do we get these things in our head – and they buzz around for hours and hours and won’t go away?? 

Mine is also the guest list – our church is thankfully big enough, but our reception venue only holds 130 at a push, and we are inviting 145 so I have been panicing about this for weeks on end! Then I move onto panicking about whether we should have chosen a later ceremony time (we are getting married at 2pm) or if we should be getting married somewhere easier for people to get to (people have to fly or drive a min of 1 1/2 hours and I feel bad about this sometimes) but then it somehow goes away and another worry comes into my head!

If it helps, I don’t think we are the only ones who do this about our weddings – Future Mother-In-Law was driving me dotty over the holidays worrying about whether people would choke on sugared almond favours – which we aren’t having but we had to have about 5 conversations about this! Then she started saying we wouldn’t mean the min numbers for our venue (70).. 


I think it is inevitable for something we plan so much. 

And I reckon your church will be fine, people will just be happy to be invited and you are likely to have at least a few nos, and people can just share pews or chairs and they will enjoy it!
