Aww, man. I had that initial letdown when we changed our plans, too. But focus on the little things–a pretty hairpiece, how you love your dress/shoes/etc., positive things about the restaurant. We’re doing a civil ceremony at the courthouse and a small restaurant reception the next day. Having smaller plans, however, doesn’t mean it’ll be boring or any less like a wedding. It’ll be intimate and fun! I’ve found that focusing on fun little things makes planning more enjoyable. And don’t worry–you do not sound like a brat at all.

As for your at-home reception, I think you should tell your Fiance how important it is to you to have one, even if it’s not huge or lavish.

I second Mys Grape’s suggestion on staying positive with the details and things you can control, so that you don’t feel too upet about things outside your control.  WB is a nice community here so you can share some of your frustrations and get inspired again.

By the way, if you’re still doing research the air tickets, I’d recommend using http://www.hipmunk.com.  It’s a neat little app that help with picking out the best time and price, and it’s much easer to use than the rest of the other online sites.

Feel better and this wedding blues will pass.

Seriously–details got me through the initial doubting, “Will it feel like a wedding?” phase. I found a ton of fun little projects to keep myself occupied with, too.

I think that nowadays there are a lot of different ways to approach a wedding. My SO and I both have very large, very complicated families that would be a logistical nightmare to organize into one large, expensive event. So, what we have discussed is doing a small intimate ceremony at a vineyard with only immediate family members and one Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man (maybe 15 ppl) and doing a larger “party” later. His dad lives on an acreage and has a beautiful yard area where we could host a much larger event and invite everyone we want to and are obliged to without stepping on toes. Perhaps you could arrange something like this?

Plus, then I imagine that I can have two dresses! A formal wedding dress and cocktail wedding dress!
