My brutally honest opinion: It sounds like it’s gonna be awesome!  Why are you worried it will be “horrible?”

I’ve been to weddings where it was literally just a ceremony, heavy hors d’oeuvres in the church reception room- no music, no dancing. THAT is what I was expecting when you asked this question… your wedding sounds fine! Don’t sweat it!

That sounds absolutely wonderful!  Do you have a day-of coordinator?  That might help to take the stress off of wondering if the vendors will show up.  It’s the coordinator’s job to make sure everyone is there on time and with the equipment they are supposed to have.

@ohheavenlyday: that’s the majority of weddings I’ve been to! And they were mostly not tacky!

Your wedding will be fine.

I think this sounds great! I’m having a similar church ceremony/later reception set-up and I wish I were as organized as you! I’ve had some terrible, counterproductive thoughts at times, too. Bound to happen to everyone sooner or later! I just keep reminding myself of the real reason we’re doing all of this and then the drama of it all doesn’t matter as much. 


AND your dress is gorgeous!!!! Hang in there.. I think your wedding will be lovely 🙂

I have that nightmare or some variation of it a few times a month! And it seems so darn real.

Your wedding seriously looks beautiful, and it will be, but maybe do look into a DOC to help alleviate your worries.

WHAT dress is that?? It’s so pretty and I’m still looking… 🙂

Wow! Your wedding/reception is going to be beautiful! Our colors are also primarily black and white/champagne, but with hints of green (in the floral arrangements). We will have a mix of high and low centerpieces (white flowers)… with black tablecloths.

That is way, way too long of a wedding. over 2 hours of cocktail hour? a 9 hour wedding… that’s way too long with no break for guests to even wonder home before dinner.

It LOOKS beautiful but it sounds insanely long.

I like the invites the way they are – black on white. Sometimes less most defiantly is more. My save the dates were the plainest ones you have ever seen, but I LOVED them!

On the other hand though, I do understand where you’re coming from. The Mr is spending a lot of money on the wedding, and I’m worried it won’t show? However I’m sure that if you just stay calm, it will all come together in the end and look BEAUTIFUL!

P.S. I’m loving all the candles, they create such soft romantic lighting!
