It sounds like your feelings are perfectly normal.  Wedding planning is stressful–and I haven’t planned anyone else’s, but planning your own has to be way harder! People are going to say rude things (mostly unintentionally), you’re going to feel like you have a huge checklist where you’re planning the ultimate party for everyone in your life, and you just can’t make everyone happy.  I think your ceremony sounds lovely and meaningful, but if you think it’s going to be really long maybe you could have a table set up with drinks/snacks when people come in or for after the ceremony is over?

Also, if you get a chance to watch the TV show “Four Weddings,” you’ll see how no wedding is “perfect” in everyone’s eyes.  We all have different tastes and expectations; the main characteristics that people look for in a wedding is that there is good food, drinks, and music.  Everything else is minor details to most guests.

During my wedding planning process, I would often repeat the Serenity prayer to myself: “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.”
