I have been married now about a month or so. I was on a big high for the first few months of planning. Then it started getting out of control. Too much stress. I honestly would have still gotten married at the beach with my few family members and still had our intimate reception at the fabulous restaurant, which btw was very inexpensive and they treated us like a king and queen.
But – for destination wedding couples, I would DEF not have the At Home Reception. I spent way too much time and money on it. Granted we did have fun, danced all night and had great food, but I know I would have ended it at the beach now.
What would you do now, looking back on all your plans, would you change any aspect of the day? Very curious.

I’ve only been planning for about 6 months, but already I’m wondering if we shouldn’t have had a simple Destination Wedding in Florida or the islands. We’re both older, and it seems like such a ton of money and bother for a day… Don’t get me wrong, I love what we came up with, but I’m sure I’ll be thinking “why???” at some point.

If I had the money, I would hire a good wedding planner, I am 100% serious. IMO, wedding planning has proved to be the biggest PITA I’ve had to deal with in a long time!

Yes. With Fiance being military and the possibility of him not making it to the wedding, I would have planned the date a little smarter, announced things later, and planned a smaller wedding. But oh well, can’t change it, so we’ll roll with the punches and pray he’ll make it on 12.17.

I am about a year out. Have my venue that includes food, ceremony, cake, etc. So, I was just sitting here wondering how the hell I’m going to pull the rest off. I’m scared.

I would have never gone through this had I known how I would feel today. I have had the hardest time , my parents are behaving horrible, and my siblings no longer want to attend. Oh, should I mention my wedding is only three weeks away. We are meeting with a mediator tomorrow night. Hoping to resolve enough issues to get everyone to the wedding day. I love my Fiance, I can’t wait to be married. I just wish I would have skipped the wedding. I really wanted something small and simple. This is nothing short of complicated on so many levels and no where near simple.
