I’ve been pretty calm about my wedding planning, but I’ve found when I begin to look for officiants, I get incredibly stressed out, and my stomach starts doing flips, and I continue to put it off because it’s so overwhelming to me!
I’m also secretly terrified that my father or his dad will show up (we both don’t speak to our dads), and make a scene the day of 🙁
I mean, that probably won’t happen, and I’m sure I’ll find a lovely officiant, but those are the two things that are going to keep me up at night as the wedding draws closer…
What is your biggest worry with your wedding planning?

My biggest worry is that I will breakout and look awful (I have bad acne. Sometimes it’s under control, sometimes not- and I’m pale, so red spots show through a lot)

Oh, I have oodles of worries to choose from on a daily basis! Today it’s that it’ll rain on our wedding day- we have this perfect gazebo chosen for the wedding so we’ll be covered, but our 50 guests certainly won’t!
I’m also worried that no one will have any fun and that my family will make things incredibly uncomfortable since we’re serving alcohol (my side of the family is super religious and thinks drinking of any kind, in any amount, is a sin).
And that the photographer will either be offensive, poor quality, or ignore my photo list.
I’m going to need therapy after the wedding, haha! I’m going to try my best to not freak out. I will fight the Bridezilla within me!

im also worried about my skin. ive had acne for years and its quite unpredictable lately. im doing everything i can to avoid an outbreak, while trying not to do too much, but i just wont know till that day.
going along with that, i hope i look great in the photos. im not worried about him (good looking AND photogenic…sheesh) but im NOT photogenic PLUS the aforementioned acne issue scares me for pics…i know thats what a professional photog is for, but i cant do anything about candid shots by guests and such…
im also nervous that we wont "act ourselves." we’re both rather shy and even though we’re having a small wedding, i hope the spotlight doesnt make us awkward and waaay nervous.
and of course, i hope everything goes smoothly and everyone has fun.

I agree I think it depends on the day, a different worry arises.
My mom’s side of the family provides horrible negative wedding toasts. As a result, I have banned toasts altogether. But I still worry someone will try to steal the podium.
I worry about added costs. I may have figured out all the expenses- but did I triple check to account for gratuity???
I worry that my grandmother who is a hypochondriac will pull something similar to my parents renewal of the vows and coincidently have to be taken to the hospital and not attend. (She likes to have all the attention)
I worry my sister won’t be there for me, because she likes to do her own thing.
I worry that people won’t have fun, or there won’t be enough food, or there will be too much food, it will be too hot or cold…
TWO MONTHS AWAY and I can’t believe how much there is to worry about. but lots to look forward to! =o)

We’re doing our own flowers and food (well, that’s the plan for now) so I’m kinda worried it’s not going to come together and we’ll be scrambling at the last minute. As organized as I am, I don’t think it will be a problem, but I am kind of forgetful so we’ll see out it goes.

My venue is known for wind, I’m worried we will have sideways rain @ 70MPH!

I’m worried that there’s going to be huge fights between lots of different people.
My parents have been divorced for almost 20 years and they still hate eachother (mind you, it’s not like any of the children are little, which would make the parents have to talk to eachother).
FI’s female cousin used to date his best friend from high school. She left him for another guy, had a baby, but is still in love with guy #1. The new guy knows it, so there could be issues there. She’s already asked me not to sit them all together, as if I was trying to cause drama on my wedding day.
FI’s other cousin, recently had "relations" with another one of our friends. Her ex and her son walked in on them, the two guys fought in the common areas of the apartment complex. The whole situation was very messy.

I have to say my fiance is my biggest worry. See he is on deployment right now, and due back about a month before the wedding. We’ve already changed the date once and I would really hate to have to change it again.

@kurlynut – Aww, I hope that it works out for you guys! That is one tough worry to have 🙁

I am worried that the families will cause HUGE issues. Future Mother-In-Law is already trying to start stuff and my mom doesnt get along with FI’s mom. Also we are DIYing practically eveything inluding the food and im petrified everything will just fail

I’m worried that my drunk of a brother will try to do or say something really stupid or inappropriate. I’m worried that there will be tons of unforeseen costs, and I’m afraid it will rain, ughhhhh.

I’m a little worried that people won’t dance, or that we won’t have things finished in time, but mostly I’m calm. I’m sure the worries will kick in soon, though!
@MissStellar – Have you tried using primer and a synthetic hair brush for foundation application? I just started using primer about a month ago (Smashbox Color Correcting Foundation Prmer in green to adjust for red). I was also talked into using a synthetic brush at my make-up trial last weekend. Combined with Make Up Forever’s HD make-up, those two things eliminate ALL redness. The primer removes a lot of red before the foundation goes on, and then the brush application seems to apply it thicker than with a sponge. I haven’t had more than one or two pimples in this time, but my skin can get very red and none of it (the usual redness or the red from a pimple) shows through with the new primer/brush technique!

My biggest worry is whether or not my little sister will show up. She is supposed to be my Matron of Honor, but ran away and hasn’t spoken to our family in about three months. 🙁 I bought her dress for her, just in case she does show up…and I know I will be hoping she does, right up until that moment I walk down the aisle…

@august15bride and all of you with family worries, sending some positive vibes your way!
My biggest worries right now are thankfully nothing major or dramatic…I have have two. I’m worried I’ll be getting my period on my wedding day. I’m usually like clockwork, but maybe it was the shorter month because February nearly knocked me a week off my usual cycle!! Before I was certain I’d be done and over with before the wedding day…now it’s getting a little too close for comfort =. I’ve avoided going on the pill b/c I just hate the idea of putting extra stuff in my body and I think it’s too late to go that route, so I’ll be spending my time mentally willing my period to happen earlier, lol. I’m also worried about the way I’ll look on th wedding. I know I’ll be a beautiful bride and all that, but like a poster above, I am quite unphotogenic in pictures…it’s something I’ve accepted about myself but it makes me nervous that the pictures will turn out badly…I do trust my photog though, and she captured some amazing epics for Fiance and I so I’ll just have to stop worrying and trust her to work her magic!
