I just really need to vent. My wedding is in about 9 weeks and I’m starting to feel overwhelmed with the thought of it. My fiance and I live halfway across the country from most of our family and friends, so our wedding requires a lot of travel for our guests, I’m starting to feel guilty but ultimately it’s what we wanted, to have the wedding where we live.
I keep thinking about all the things that can go wrong and worried that people won’t enjoy themselves. I’m expecting my guest turn out to be pretty low, which I’m personally okay with but I don’t want my wedding to the event that everyone remembers as lame.
I know I shouldn’t care too much about what people think, since the most important thing is marrying my best friend and life partner, but I just feel bad since attending the wedding will be an investment of sorts for the majority of our guests, and I want them to enjoy themselves.

You’re allowed to want a wonderful wedding!
We got a huge shock when we had an almost 50% decline rate, but we used that extra money to upgrade some things that really enhanced the experience for us and the guests that were there!
If you’re worried about things going wrong, I cannot stress enough to plan every obnoxious detail. You will feel insane, your mother/FI/BMs will tell you you’re micromanaging, but when you’ve thought of every stinking detail, there is WAY less room for error.
Also, I cannot wax on enough about a day of coordinator. It doesnt even have to be a professional, just a really organized friend/acquaintance.
Long story short, sit tight til you get RSVPs back and then worry about who’s coming and in the meantime PLAN PLAN PLAN to do everything you can to have the best wedding EVER.

Thank you thank you thank you!!!! You have no idea how much your response helped me. I feel less crazy and more reassured that how I feel is natural. I didn’t want people to think I was some bridezilla, but you’re right. Planning is the best offense right?!
I definitely booked a day of coordinator, I couldn’t imagine getting married and having to ensuer everything goes right! Just thinking about it makes me want to cry! hahaha.
Thanks so much!!
