@ august15bride: i can sympathize with your stress! although my sister didn’t run away, she had a huge falling out with my parents over something very petty a year ago and refuses to speak with anyone in the family now. my parents are really private people so no one else, not even my relatives, know about this. i don’t know if she’ll show up at the wedding (i sent her an email, voicemail, and invitation). focus on your wedding day to be about you and your FI! that’s what i will try to do.

My biggest wedding worry is the cost of this whole thing. I could have put a down payment on a house for this amount.
Is it too late to elope?

I’m also worried about my in-laws, specifically my Future Father-In-Law. We don’t get along very well, and I keep having these awful visions of him objecting to our marriage! My parents dislike him also (he’s not a nice guy), so I’m nervous that there will be tension there. I’m relieved that I’m not the only one who is worried about these issues 🙂

i’m worried about getting sick, crying and having my contacts fall out and then not being able to see, or having diarrhea.

Does anyone else worry about walking down the aisle and saying the vows? I know that sounds really lame, but I have never been thrilled with public speaking and do not like being the center of attention. I would personally be ok with eloping, but it’s important to our families (especially his) that we have a wedding. Originally we had planned for 25 people in Savannah and that has since changed to 85 people in Atlanta (long story), and I am so nervous to have that many people looking at me and listening to me speak.

@smokipenelope I really, really want to write and read my own vows, but I’m a HUGE emotional crier, so I know it’s going to be super tough. I’m hoping it’ll all work out, but stage fright is a tough thing to get over!

I actually have two worries at the moment….
The first is one of my Bridesmaid or Best Man is considering backing out of the wedding, which is in 4 days, because she was dating one of the groomsmen and she isn’t taking the break up very well..
The other is im rather pale, so when I get nervous I get ‘blotchy’ and I am wearing a strapless….

I’m worried about everything coming together and not looking sloppy. I’m also worried about my Fiance wanting to spend more time with our guests than with me (we’ll be sure to talk this one out prior to so we can be hospitable but united.)

i worry about something new eveyday. sometimes i wish that the date were sooner so i would stop worrying and then i remember that if it were sooner the money worry would be bigger. the biggest worry i have is the family that has high expectations about weddings. My FI’s grandparents are well to put it nicely "stuffy". they are nice but super super formal and opinionated.

hmm, i have lots of worries, where to begin! the one that keeps bugging me lately is that I worry no one will dance. i’d like to have a live band so i know that decision will make a huge impact on people having fun and getting up and dance!
@sc8493: oh my goodness how exciting!!! i’m sending you *good thoughts and wishes* for your wedding!!

I’m so scared that people won’t come to our wedding! I’m scared that they’re just gonna get the invitation and say to themselves, "Oh, I have something better to do that day." I have a vivid imagination (:

I’m in the early stages of planning. I have a huge family that lives over 2000 miles away, and I’m not close to most people. I am, however, inviting everyone to my little weekend wedding on the California coast in a cute little resort town. My terror situation is that I plan for the next year for my envisioned small wedding, and then the whole family, for some reason, decides to come and doubles my guest list. It would be a nice problem, in a way, but ah!
I actually wrote a panicked letter to the site I’m most interested in to see if we could put a three sided tent onto the side of the building if necessary to increase size. I love one reception site in particular, and wouldn’t want to rent a last minute full tent instead.

I’m worried about the race/class differences with our families. This will probably be the first party that a lot of my family has ever been too with a bunch of white people and probably the first party with a bunch of black people for his family. I just hope we can all just get along!! 🙂
