- Wedding: September 2010
We all do it. Planning a wedding is really stressful, and every once in a while, we become absolutely obsessed over some detail that pretty much no one else in the world (except maybe another bride planning a wedding) would notice. We agonize over it. We pester our fiance with it. We might even become overly emotional about it. So, what’s your example?
I’ll go first. The one that immediately springs to mind was whether to attach our STD magnets to our holiday cards, or just throw them in the envelope. My fiance thought I was being totally ridiculous and that it would take too much time to attach them. But I went to Michaels anyway, bought a box of scrapbooking photo tabs (those things that stick to the page and hold the corners of the pictures), and then agonized over whether I should tab just two opposite corners, or do all four. (I did all four, for reference.) But good lord, I cannot imagine that any of our guests really noticed. (Except for one of my bridesmaids, who complimented me on the tabs, but she’s supposed to notice stuff like that!)
I’ve also been agonizing for WEEKS over what to use to decorate the chairs along the aisle. Should I do pomandors? If so, tissue paper? Fabric? Something else? Or maybe I’ll do kusudama balls, but where should I order the origami paper? And in what colors? If I had spent the amount of time I’ve been worrying about this on something more productive, I could have cured cancer by now. And while, deep down inside, I know that hardly anyone will notice this detail but me, I can’t help it!
And I haven’t even gotten into the nitty gritty of invitation wording or addressing the envelopes. Man, I’m going to drive my fiance nuts when that time comes.
