Ok, so I’m not sure how common this is. I feel like I am focusing on all the wrong things in planning this wedding. We’v already got our venue (it’s an inn so they are basically taking care of set up, take down, food, alcohol etc), photographer, officiant and we’re in talks with some musicians for the ceremony and the cocktail hour we’re planning. But the things that I keep coming back to are my wedding ring, shoes, bridesmaid dress, accessories and decorations. Mainly my wedding ring. I’m absolutely obessed with looking at rings. I feel like that is not as important as other things I should be focusing on and that I am very selfish for focusing on something so trivial when the important thing is that I’m promising to spend the rest of my live with a wonderful man. Does/did anyone else feel/felt this way? Am I crazy? Is this normal?

@catwoman1701: as long as you know all of the other stuff/”details” don’t matter compared to your actual marriage, i don’t think it’s a problem. i went through phases of searching for/focusing on certain aspects, too. it turned out fine.

I think that your wedding ring is actually one of the most important things, if not the most important thing that you could focus on detail-wise for your wedding. It is a physical symbol recognizing/honoring your marriage and commitment. It is also the only physical representation of the wedding you will look at every day for the rest of your life. The rest will fade away over time but you see your ring daily. If you could have anything to get obessed about I would say this is the thing to do it with:) I was the same way, very few things were ‘that’ important to me and our rings were one of them. I think it’s normal, especially becuase of the significance they play.
