I am like you – decisive. There’s only been a couple things that I go back and forth on. That is the flowers and if we will do a day-after brunch. But both of those decisions have been made now:-]

I was called “laid back” and “relaxed” the most.  It wasn’t true all of the time but I tried to not get worked up about things.  Unfortunately, decisive I was not!  That would have been a handy one.  ๐Ÿ™‚

A couple people said “easy” or “laid back” but I think they just happened to catch me when I was so tired at the end of the day, I was basically apathetic.

I’ve been varying degrees of everything — indecisive, certain, irritated, delighted, etc.

I am excited to get married, I sort of just want the planning to be over with, if that makes sense?

I was definitely decisive too.  I picked my dress in a day, we picked our venue in a weekend, we only met with 2 florists and 1 baker, etc. 

But right now I am a stressed-out bride, with 4 days to go!

i was exactly the same way. bought my dress in 2 hours. picked out Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses in 1. booked the venue in one day of “viewings.” i’ve got all my vendors lined up… just need to $$$$$ and book the dates, but we have some time for that.

I am an indecisive bride.  I am having the worst time making decisions and sticking to them.

Also decisive. My mom has bought and returned more dresses for my wedding than I even tried on. I knew what I want pretty early, and I just did it. She keeps expecting me to freak out and second guess my choices, but that’s just not how I roll. ๐Ÿ™‚

Creative. That’s what everyone kept telling me through the planning and at the wedding.

I’d like to think I was an economical bride too ๐Ÿ™‚

I heard that a lot. I guess it was because I let my BMs pick any dress and shoes they wanted, didn’t care if they had their hair/make-up done professionally, and was really laid back about everything overall, and really just wanted them feeling as fabulous as I did that day. I also went out of my way to make sure everything else was easy for them.

I also tried really hard to make sure our guests felt welcomed and appreciated.

My whole family told me how thoughtful I was. It was nice to hear after all the work that went into everything ๐Ÿ™‚

I am  totally the opposite–I am an indecisive bride. I have obsessed over every decision I’ve had to make. We visited 10-12 venues, I tried on 25-30 dresses, I looked at countless photography blogs before making my decision. The next big thing is invitations, and I’m driving my Fiance crazy by coming up with new options and finding new ones that I like. The wedding is difficult for me to make decisions on because I never had a picture in my head of what I wanted my wedding to look like, so I’m kind of figuring it all out as I go along, which leads to a lot of self-doubt and confusion!

I also feel such a sense of (self-induced) pressure to explore alllll my options in order to make sure that I make the right choice. I’ve been the same way my entire life, though–obsessing about clothing purchases, college applications, buying furniture…it’s definitely exhausting and I need to figure out a way to reign myself in before I get burned out!

Obsessive? ๐Ÿ™‚

Luckily on the day of the wedding, I was a chill bride. That’s the only way to go!

That’s what people kept saying leading up to the day, b/c I wasn’t stressed about anything (on the outside….my husband obviously has a different opinion!).
