- Wedding: June 2014
Hi all! It’s been a little while since I’ve visited the boards, and this is only my second post, but now that I’m getting into the actual planning I suspect I’ll be on here a lot more
My question: Did any of you ladies feel somewhat insecure while planning your wedding? My fiance and I are social people, but both of us are uncomfortable with being the “center of attention.” Regardless, our families are being generous with their time (and money!), and my grandmother suggested I hire a wedding planner, since we’re going to be getting married in a different town, closer to family, than the one we live in. I did some research and found a planner that I love, which is great news. However, if I’m being honest, I’m starting to feel a little… guilty, I guess? Most of my friends that are planning weddings are getting married in the backyards of friends or family, or having small weddings. Ours will be small as well, guest-wise, but… I don’t know. I don’t want it to be over-the-top, and somehow hiring a planner feels decadent to me, like I’m making a huge deal or being extraordinarily fussy about little old “us.” I know it’s our wedding and it should be special, and we should make a big deal about it, because it is a big deal, but I guess what I’m getting at is that I’m already feeling a little insecure about the attention and the hooplah, and I can’t seem to just relax and enjoy the ride. Has anyone else dealt with this kind of insecurity or guilt?
