What is the aspect of your wedding that keeps you up at night? Is there something that you are wondering whether you are going to be able to pull off or that is so important to you that you want it to be flawless?
If you’ve already had your wedding, did that aspect end up mattering? Were the details that you were worried about beforehand ok? Was it all unanticipated stuff that ended up giving you headaches?
Inquiring minds want to know!

I think the thing I was most worried about was the fit of my wedding dress. The dress was very big when it came in (I lost 30 lbs between ordering and first fitting), so it had to be taken in a lot. The alterations were complicated and I was terrified that I would hate it on the day of the wedding. In retrospect, I wasn’t happy with the fit of the dress. It was bunchy in certain places and too tight in others. And my bustle broke about 3 minutes after the ceremony. I sat down to sign the marriage license and BAM–it broke! Having said that, even though it wasn’t perfect and exactly how I wanted it to be, honestly, I didn’t worry about it on the day of the wedding. I had a wonderful time and didn’t let it bother me. When my bustle broke, I just held it up so I could dance.
People kept telling me "don’t worry, on the day of the wedding none of these little details will matter." My experience was that I noticed them and they mattered…but they didn’t make the day less happy. I was happy and excited enough to just be able to let that stuff go.

I’m worried about my wedding dress fitting/looking good, but mostly, I’m nervous about all eyes being on us, especially during the first dance, but the while night. Even though I know it’s going to be a blast of a night, the whole idea of being SO MUCH the center of attention makes me uneasy. Yikes…

Honestly? Whether or not my little sister/MOH will show up. I haven’t talked her in months. Sigh…

my main thing I worry about is making sure people will have a good time. I am having to cut back on a few things (after the fact) such as an open bar etc and dont want that to ‘ruin’ peoples night. I also am having my reception in a very non child venue and there are alot of kids attending so I dont want that to put a damper on things either

I worry about everything. 🙂 But that is my personality in general.
I worry that I will trip and fall walking down the aisle. And I worry that no one will show up and we’ll have spent all of this time and money planning a fabulous event for ourselves. I also worry that at the last minute my work will have an issue with the amount of time I am taking off for our honeymoon.

It’s a new thing every day for me. I’d say the most frequent one is that no one will show up — we are having our wedding in the middle of winter (thank you, med school) in the mountains so a blizzard is a very real possibility.

My main councern is my family and their love to get into stupid arguments. I have a rather large extended fam and for the most part they fight about EVERYTHING! I just want them to be able to suck it up for the day like they usually do at nice events and not make snide remarks about eachother or storm out becuase their brother said they were being immature… cant we all just get along now that we are adults…please….

I am worried about peolple bringing their children even though we have been very specific to all that kids are not invited.

I worry about everyone not meshing well at the reception.
We have a widely varying group of friends and our families are drastically different as well – imagining them all in the same place at the same time is kind of mind boggling. I worry that if I go too formal my friends and family will be uncomfortable but if I go too casual B.’s will be. If I go too modern/current my older relatives won’t enjoy themselves but if I go too traditional everyone else will be bored.
The DJ’s playlist alone is going to give me heartburn.

I’m not really worried about anything… yet. I just hope all the hardwork with planning comes together and the wedding is beautiful and all our guests enjoy themselves as much as I know my Fiance and I will.

Our wedding isn’t at a "wedding venue" so we have to do everything ourselves (like set the tables, set up the ceremony chairs, set up the table with place cards, set up the bar, move chairs from the ceremony area to the reception area after the ceremony… all those little things that the venue usually takes care of). I wanted a DOC but my Mom insists that family will help out to get everything done. I am FREAKING out inside because I keep imagining people showing up to bare tables and a stack of folded chairs.
I’m also freaking out a little b/c my Mom and my brother aren’t talking to each other and I’m worried that they’ll fight at the wedding.

I’m most worried about:
1. Fighting/drama. I have some drama queens among friends and fmaily, and am doing my best to have my Maid/Matron of Honor and mom spread the word for everyone to just wait till tomorrow! on whatever stupid argument they want to start at my wedding. I can deal with *things* going wrong, but am less able to handle bad emotional juju going on, and I know I’ll freak out if it happens!
2. Tons of uninvited people showing up. I’ve been to weddings of FI’s friends before where quite a few of their not close acquaintances who were not invited heard about it the night before/day of and just..showed up! Like it’s a kegger down the street and not a wedding. Ones who are invited also tend to bring uninvited dates (oh, I met this girl in a bar last night and I told her she could come…). Sigh.
