@Jenniferk6: Sorry that you had a freak out, but at least it was at home with just him and you could figure it out. 

Why don’t you do a half and half? Start off with beautiful and romantic and then have it go into a more upbeat and happy song. This will help to kick of the wedding in a high energy sort of way and also means you get the romantic type of dancing and moment you were envisioning.

Fiance said: No dancing.

And I wanted to do LESSONS.

So now we have agreed to get up with the bridal party and dance to Me First and The Gimme Gimmes “I’ll Be There” (we are big punk fans), I think its going to be epic!

@Jenniferk6: I always hate when I have such a strong emotional reaction, it makes me feel nuts, sorry! I am sure it will work out and be amazing!

I have had a couple melt downs. I remember the first one pretty vividly. It was about venues. 

I’m from the midwest, and for a lot of our friends/family, the norm is to just pick a VFW or similar lodge for the reception, and the wedding is almost always in a church. 

And then you have me, who has been reading wedding porn websites like 100 Layer Cake, Once Wed, etc. for about 2 years before even being engaged. The locations my family/friends picked just don’t do it for me. 

I knew I wanted an outdoor wedding, and I knew I wanted to have a beautiful reception. 

I was looking at possible venues in 3 cities- our hometown, the city we currently live in, and the state capital. 2 were a drive for us, one was a drive for our guests. 

So, while planning, one day Fiance got on me about how I really needed to start considering venues in our home town… I lost it.

I went on a tirade about how there are only a couple of good venues in our home town and how EVERYONE uses the decent ones and how I didn’t even like those very much….. and so on. I just don’t care for them, and I knew that. 

In the end, Fiance understood where I was coming from, and we compromised- I opted for the city we live in (about an hour or 2 drive for our guests), and picked a gorgeous garden for the wedding (my dream wedding location, and had I had enough money the reception would have been here as well in another area of the garden), and we picked a reasonably priced reception venue that’s in an old Masonic Temple. It’s now an arts center, and it’s what I like to call a “modest ballroom” style room- clean white interior, lots of light, plenty of room to dress it up, but with columns and a beautiful staircase entryway.
