I guess I can relate in some ways.  I am very detailed-oriented when it comes to my home, my work etc. but when it comes to plan details in our wedding, I’m having a hard time making decisions on most things.  It’s like I could see the big picture (what type of ambiance I wanted) but couldn’t decide on little things.  That’s why in December we gave in and hired a wedding planner.  Best decision so far.  She’s amazing at helping us with the details. 

The only thing that is very detailed that I’ve been working a lot on are the guest list and the invitations (although I am not making them myself, I am working with a designer -but I had to send her my preferences, wording, addresses, details which was time consuming).

I’m still enjoying the planning process though! Best time of my life. And it’s a great feeling once a decision is made, like when I finally chose my color palette!  Took me forever!

Hey ! I’d say don’t worry about it! DIY is not for everyone, and just because it’s a trend right now it doesn’t mean that your wedding will be any less special or unique! Being detail-oriented in real life doesn’t mean that you do everything handmade by yourself, it just means that you make sure that nothing is missed, and I’d say you’re doing a pretty good job of that if you already thought about all the IMPORTANT detials like music, readings, etc.

For my wedding I spent a lot of time doing DIY stuff, and although it was great, I’m sure that the guests don’t actually put as much importance on those things as brides do.

So just relax these next few months and make sure that all the important details are taken care of! Instead of spending your time bedazzling shoes, make sure you have a very solid Wedding Day Timeline  in which everyone knows what to do and when to do it!
