I hate to say it, but your wedding isn’t going to mean nearly as much to anyone but you. That said, it doesn’t mean people won’t GET excited later. I say plan, keep your ideas on pinterest or start a blog, and show it to people when they ask.

@mrsaponte: I feel the same way. the way I look at is it at least I do not have to worry about everyone giving me their 2 cents. I have read on here of horror stories from brides who have no say in their wedding and it makes me appreciate I am doing this solo. Cool

Yes. 

And that’s okay.  I’ve decided that I don’t want my wedding to be an endless list of chores for my friends.  I want them to come, wear a pretty dress, and support me on my big day.

Once in a while, I wish my mother was a little more involved, but I’m an adult and live 7 hours away from her (and she’s almost 70).  It doesn’t make sense for her to be deeply involved.

I will say that I had some of my best vendor experiences when I met with them alone.  My florist meeting lasted 2 hours because we were chatting so much.  She even let me down into her storage room of vessels and I got to see her ribbon library…and her dog and cats.  I’m not sure I would have gotten so much of her time if I had been with someone else.  🙂

My mom is super involved (which can be a good thing or a bad thing, as you see on here!) but some of my BMs aren’t so much. I had a few phone calls and emails about it today, and I was really pissed about it, but what can ya do at the end of the day. That’s what the bee is here for!
