I’m the exact opposite – we’re planning a weekend-long, lakeside event, but I compulsively sketch out designs for a party at the restaurant around the corner in the city.  I think it’s just a product of being slightly overwhelmed by committing to spend that much money on *anything.*

I love to party plan so I know how you feel.  It’s my other thing I do just for fun.  My profession is in medicine, but my sis and I love to throw good parties! 

Can’t wait until T and I are already married and I have cocktail parties for his firm and for neighbors.  Cookouts.  Holiday gatherings. 

I love to plan parties, not necessarily weddings, but could do one if I tried. 

Some days when I’m super stressed out, I plan our other alternate wedding in my head, where we jet to St. Lucia and just do it quickly there and have a short honeymoon.  I’ve already got the bouquet and bout!

Yes- and it’s exactly because of that I didn’t enter to win a free wedding. I started planning a Desert Botanical Gardens wedding in my mind… it can become addictive.

GUILTY! But, I have taken it way further than you.  I have not just planned alternate weddings in my head, but actually written them down on paper.  I have a plan B, C, D, E, etc. for everything with fully-researched budget breakdowns.  While my Fiance agreed on our current wedding concept, I have a million other ideas should something not work out.

My favorite “other” wedding is a ceremony in the local park we used to play in as kids, followed by a brunch reception.  This is not feasible due to the weekend farmer’s market set up in that very same park and the high probability of inclament weather in Michigan, which is why we picked an indoor venue.  But a girl can dream….

Everyone does that to some degree even if they claim otherwise. With all the possibilities out there, it’s impossible not to plan ideas for other dream weddings but that doesn’t mean you will actually go through with any of them due to logistics, budget, etc. There’s nothing wrong with fantasizing either as long as you don’t let it take over the wedding you are planning for real life.

YES YES YES! I do this on a regular basis! I think I’m going to make this a full time job! (since it’s already my current full time job, I’m just not getting paid!)
