I have a few reminders for other bees out there. The little details may seem like big things right now, but honestly your guests will barely notice them. I can’t tell you what exactly her centerpieces were, what flowers she used, how the bridesmaids and groomsmen looked beyond wearing purple and curly hair for the girls, and I certainly can’t tell you what most of the important moment songs were, but I remember the important things. I remember her walking down the isle nearly crying, the look on her groom’s face when he first saw her, the conversations with old friends over dinner, and the crazy dancing with the drunk people. Those are the moments that matter during a wedding, and as long as you have a good time then what else is there? Tonight I celebrated the union of two lovely people that are completely perfect for each other, and it has made me even more excited for my own wedding. So bees, keep calm and remember that it doesn’t have to be perfect to be amazing.

It is a good reality check to realize that people are not going to notice every little thing…

I completely agree! My wedding has passed and can’t agree with you more. I wouldn’t judge a bride for having ZERO centerpieces or not having aisle decor if she decided so.

You hit the nail on the head 🙂
So many people get wrapped up in the incidentals and forget the bigger picture.

@cloverbug: I agree! As long as your guests are comfortable and well fed they will enjoy it, and everything else is really just for the benefit of you and your husband. It’s only on “4 Weddings” where guests critique other people’s weddings. In real life, the guests are there to share your happy day with you.

thanks 🙂 well, I totally agree.
yesterday I met with a friend who is making our wedding cake and she got married some time ago. she was asking if i remeber her decorations when we where thinkinh about mine and if i remember that and this – i said yes because I didnt want to tell her I didnt remeber a thing 😀 I remember emotions but not details. so thats why im not concentrating that much on the small things – i just want overall concept look nice but I really dont think anyone will notice and REMEBER what kinda flowers I got etc. 🙂 so im taking it easy and saving a lot of nerves 😀
