2 guests that I plan on blacklisting that I haven’t let neither of my parents know yet, and I will burn in hell before I have them in the same room with me on my wedding day.

I’m worried about alot of things, particularly our families getting along and breaking the headcount at the reception.  Our rehearsal dinner alone is breaking 90 and we only anticiapted 70. 

 nevertheless.. I’m finding worrying is more of a waste of time and the only thing you can do is have a glass of wine and smile.

I’m worried that I’ll walk into the reception and nothing will be set up the way I had imagined… I know this is silly because I’ll talk to our DOC and she’ll do a great job, but I just have anxiety about.

I’m also worried that people will leave early and not stay and dance. We have a great group of friends and a fun family, but I just have this weird anxiety about people not wanting to hang out.

Weather doesn’t worry me or if I get wine spilled on my dress or if one of our three flower girls doesn’t make it down the aisle… I can’t expect all of that to end up playing out perfect. There’s no point in stressing!

Tornado, hurricane, monsoon or thunderstorms.

Our ceremony will be completely outdoors (pray & hope for no rain!) and the reception will be outdoors under a tent. So we can take a little rain for that. But any crazy T-storms or monsoon and it will be miserable. Of course we’ll have a indoor backup but since all decisions will revolve around outdoors…

And never mind that I’m in NY and crazy monsoons and hurricanes and tornados don’t usually pass through. Mother Nature is a freak!

PAYING for it all…  That’s the one constant worry I have.

  • Wedding: June 2009

Great day!!  Though I have my own worries, you guys have given me more to worry about! 

My biggest worry is that people who did not get an "and guest" on their invitation will be "red-neck" enough to add a guest.  I really don’t want to be in the position where I have to call people and tell them, "sorry but we really haven’t budgeted for more than the exact number we invited".  Is that a good like?

 I’m also worried about my dad breaking down because if he does, I know I will.  

I’m worried that we invited too many people (175), in hopes of getting no more than 150.  Our wedding is June 6 and I didn’t sent a save the date out just for that reason.  A lot of people start heading out of town on vacations around that time.

I am worried that something will go wrong and I won’t be able to roll with it.  I’m normally very laid-back, but after all the time and money we’ve spent on this one day, I am anxious to see if everything will go as planned.

I am also worried that I’ll be sick and won’t be able to enjoy everything.  In the past year, I’ve had pneumonia, kidney infections, and the regular old flu, and it’s landed me in the hospital twice.  Ugh.

Also, Fiance and I met online but hardly anyone knows.  I am worried that someone who DOES know will say something to my parents, who do NOT know.  I’m sure by then it won’t be a big deal, but I am scared to tell my parents.  I sound like I’m 18 again!!  ๐Ÿ™

I’m worried that the decorations I have in mind won’t look cohesive and I’m also worried someone is going to be upset that they’re not invited no matter how much I believe they shouldn’t be!

I definitely have worries:

1. It will rain. Our ceremony and reception are at the same place, but having an outdoor ceremony will be really nice.

2. Many of my invited guests won’t come. I have a few friends who I really love that live in other countries or far away states, and I am afraid they won’t come. Also many of our invited guests that will most likely be coming are on FI’s side, so I’m worried that I will be surrounded by lots of people that I won’t know as well. There’s nothing wrong with that, but it’s nice to be surrounded by the people you truly care about.

3. I second Yogigal with the "diversity" of guests that will coming to my wedding. I don’t think it will be a huge problem, but his side in particular in no used to very much cultural diversity (case in point, I was the only non-white person at his brother’s wedding last year and that included the servers). This also is going to be interesting in terms of the music we play since I’ll want Carribean music played as well.

4. People will be bored and not dance. My friends will but it may be just us on the dance floor. Maybe that’s not such a bad thing though ๐Ÿ™‚

my worry is expense, I work really hard and wish I can get better prices things are so expensive in NY so the biggest splurges are venue, chruch, dress and photography, but this is the price I pay to live here, I wouldnt change it for the world

 

everything I got on the cheap, my bro will DJ and do laptop music, I’m having no flowers, I find it ridiculously expensive to splurge on $5000 worth of flowers, my venue is fancy enough not ot need flowers I’m doing my own invites, just 10 bucks, print on parchment paper and send out, I’m hiring a friend/photographer for 1/4 the price, I’m hring a my work bus to transport people and using my networks and doing some serious name dropping

 

so my biggest splurges are gown (either david bridal or kleinfeld), church $1175, plus priests tip, photography (I can ask my bro but I want him to enjoy it) 
and the biggest is venue an dfood and alcohol $11038 for 50 people but it will be at the Waldorf Astoria at the Conrad suite where Princess Grace had her engagement party

so I’m picking my battles, I figure  I live in NY greatest city in the world may as well get the most out of it on the most important day of my life you only do it once

I’m worried that my family will think it’s all a huge pretentious snob-fest and waste of money, and that my FI’s family will think it’s a cheap, low budget, low class redneck hillbilly wedding.

  • Wedding: January 1990

My dress was my biggest worry.  I’ve had terrible insomnia and anxiety worrying about since I got engaged.  He proposed in December 2007 and I’ve held off planning the wedding until now because I was dreading the dress so much.  As soon as I found someone to make me the dress I want, it was like a weight was lifted from my shoulders!  I am so excited about the wedding now.

I’m not worried about anything on The Day Of because I know I can’t control everything, I’m just going to try to roll with the punches.  I hope there are no giant bugs, or that it rains, or relatives get drunk and disorderly, etc, but I’m just going to pretend that none of that could possibly happen to me.  That works, right?  I hope!!

I am also kind of shy, not a party person at all, so I’m worried about anxiety on the wedding.

Worst come to worst, it will all be over the next day and I will be able to move on and immediately repress any bad memories! That’s healthy, right?

Weather!  We chose a date outside of hurricane season, but you never know.  You can’t control the weather though, so I’m not going to stress about it ๐Ÿ™‚ The vendors should know how to change things up in case of interesting weather, so it’s out of our hands.

Oh – also, crying!  I’m a bad cryer – you know, the single tear down the cheek girls? NOT ME.  I’m more of a racking sob kind of gal, with the red face and puffy eyes to match!  Champagne will be my little giddy boost to hopefully not cry for the pictures ๐Ÿ˜›

I think my two biggest worries are the weather and our guest list. Our reception is out in a tent and part of the reason we chose our location is because it is a beautiful spot on the water. If it’s raining no one will get to enjoy the fabulous location. I’m also worried about our guest list. We are inviting way more people that we should and, while I want everyone to come, I think we are also sort of hoping there are some people who can’t make it so we can fit in our venue!!
