people WILL leave early. especially old people.  I was surprised, but then i thought, “um, old people don’t really dance. Ok makes sense”

If the wedding is about you, that’s all you can do. My dad thought buying my own dress and buying dinner for “all those strangers” (aka DH’s family cuz i had 5 family members at my wedding!) was frivolous and wasteful, but I just stopped telling them how I was spending our money.

I can see their point but i also think this way: Money is made to be spent. You can’t take it with you. If you pay your bills, put some away to save, and can afford a few luxuries in life, what more can you ask for? Use your money to enjoy life. At least, that’s how I look at it.

this is your wedding, plan it the way you want and ENJOY the day of! don’t worry too much about other people’s opinions, they are not you, they won’t understand why you are doing things a certain way, but you!

also, don’t worry about people leaving early and other things that you cannot control the day of your wedding, just relax, have fun, and again, enjoy! it’s your party, you should have the most fun!

I totally have the same fears for many of the same reasons.  I get it out of my stystem every few weeks by talking them out with my FH and he seems to reassure me and make me feel at ease.
