I am second guessing every little thing right now (other than the fact that I want to get married!) I have had my colors set for months now and now 4 months before the wedding I want to change everything from purple and grey to black and green. Am I just being silly? Has anyone else been panicking? Someone come sympathize with me.
Not to mention I feel like this is all on me. Every decision comes down to the fact that I’m the boss in this whole thing. Everyone is being helpful and letting me talk when I need to, but I still have to make all the final decisions.

SYMPATHY!!! I KNOW I will be the bride wanting to change every detail a month before, because it is hard to make such big choices.
Wedding planning is stressful. Have a drink, relax, watch tv and take your mind off it for 24 hours 🙂

I’m the same way!! Was this dress really the one? Maybe I should have looked at more venues? Do I really want a Fall wedding?! AHHH!!!
This is what I’ve boiled it down to (personally). I’ve been planning my wedding since I was, oh 8 years old. I’ve planned every wedding scenerio from a charming backyard wedding to an exquisite evening on the Amalfi Coast. I thought I was going to LOVE planning my real wedding once I got engaged. But then I started to get terrified… I’ve been looking at wedding dresses for a good 15 years, so when I actually bought my real wedding dress, I freaked out! I just think there are so many choices that when I started to book things, it was just so… permanent. I could no longer fantasize about my wedding dress or my wedding day, because it’s already all done! Sort of a planning withdrawal? MAybe I’m just putting too much pressure on myself. But I keep reminding myself that I’ve made all of these decisions for a reason and when all is said and done, the wedding day is going to be everything I dreamed of.
Just keep reminding yourself that you made all of your wedding decisions for a reason – I’m sure that your day is going to turn out perfectly! 🙂

@ItaliaBride: I agree with you. I think it is planning withdrawal, and the bride doesn’t want the decision making to be over. I am happy with all my decisions, but when I look at photos of other weddings I can’t help but think, “I wonder what that would look like at my wedding.”

@whitandrior: Just remember that whether the cake has vanilla or buttercream icing is not going to matter in the long run. What matters is that your wedding is a lovely experience for your guests and, more importantly, an amazing night for you and your husband. Breathe! 🙂

@takemyhand: Yes, after stressing out all day I am taking the rest of the night to relax with the fiance and NOT discuss the wedding.
@ItaliaBride: Haha, this sounds like me. Today I was like, I want a night wedding! With new colors! And new dresses! Which is so not what I’m actually having. But after exploring the other options, I’ve settled back at my original plan. Leaving it alone now!
@brideatbeach: Thanks! I can’t help but feel guilty that I’m stressing about this stuff when other people have real problems.

Yes, you are being silly – purple and grey is a way better color scheme than black and green =P
