Choosing the music… We are doing an iPod reception and I want (no actually NEED) the perfect music…

Also still stuck for toss music and cake music… *sigh*

Right now it’s budget/guestlist/caterer and trying to get Fiance to understand why I’m freaking out and wishing we had just agreed to have a dozen people at the courthouse…

Right now it’s our engagement photos, which are in a couple weeks. I think my Fiance is surprised just how much thought I have put into them already (picking out my outfits, buying some new makeup). I keep telling myself to calm down because my expectations for the photos are getting SO high!

SHOES!  More than anything else at all, the shoe thing has been my plague.

Mmm, and music too, that one has been hard.  Really, really hard.  I have my aisle song, and the father/daughter dance song, and so far I’m stuck on the rest.

I would have to say my budget has been what I have been obsessed with.

shoes has been the biggest pain in the ass for me. i finally got it out of the way last week and i’m so relieved!

the one thing i haven’t stopped worrying about (and i won’t stop worrying until my wedding day) is the guest list and staying within budget.

The venue!  My fiance and I are going to have only one chance to view our list of potentival venues in person before we’re going to have to commit.  There’s one we really love and were planning to book on our trip to view venues if it lived up to our expectations, but then my mom started having a fit and insisted we wouldn’t book until after our trip and showing her pictures and talking it over with her.

She’s convinced that it’s too far to drive my gown and the wedding paraphenalia.  Mr. C keeps coming up with logical solutions including suggesting driving my gown in the back of an SUV where it can have plenty of room and renting a storage unit near our venue for the wedding paraphenalia, but my mom insists it’s going to be a disaster and is making this really stressful.

The hardest thing is that our top venue choice is the closest thing we can afford to my dream venue.  So I sort of feel like I’ve already had to compromise and my mother is taking my dream even further away.

I’m a total wreck at the moment because if we love the venue, my mother will go ballistic and be very difficult.  I’m afraid that she’ll make it impossible to enjoy.  And if we don’t pick it, I’ll always wonder how much she influenced the decision and she’ll probably do an “I told you so.”

So, um yeah, big insane venue obsessing at the moment!

Shoes and I dont know why, I’m not really a shoe person in normal life.  I’ve already returned 3 pairs on Amazon!  I feel more confident in the thousands of dollars I’m spending on vendors than $75 shoes, its weird.

My first obsession was an arch. Our ceremony is in the middle of a field and the venue didn’t come with a nice-looking arch. I became soooo obsessed with NEEDING an amazing arch. I actually ended up rearranging the budget to get one because I realized how important it is to me (but honestly, the reasonable part of my brain is still kicking myself about this– is it *really* that important?)

Now, my obsession is figuring out jewelry. I’m not a big jewelry person in regular life, so maybe that’s why I’m having such a hard time with it. I’ve bought multiple pieces of jewelry and returned them and am CONSTANTLY changing my mind about the whole look.

Other than that, I didn’t dwell too much on any other decisions, even ones I thought might be tougher.

Wedding invitations. They need to be DONE in the next two weeks and I can’t even get my Mother-In-Law to give me a head count much less the actual list. Yell
