Wedding Woes

Friday, March 22, 2013

When I got engaged last May, I wanted only one thing,

To get married at an exotic/different location. Just the two of us.

Many people have found my dream wedding weird and have made comments how they would want their family around them. Then I need to explain that this is not my first wedding (or my fiancÚ's) and I already had the big, traditional wedding that cost a small fortune. Plus neither my family, his family or us can afford too much.

Then there is the stress of the guest list, trying to please everyone and the negative comments I received from my own family that comes with planning a wedding.

Not something I want to go through again. AT ALL! emoticon

Last night while my fiancÚ was working late, I thought I would try on all my wedding things. I slipped the dress on and then realized that I couldn't zip it up myself. Well this will be a challenge. I tried everything I could to get that dress zipped myself. Nothing worked. Having my family and friends helping me get dressed on my wedding day would certainly fix this problem. Looks like I may need to get creative on that day. Does hotels offer this as a service? lol

It hasn't been the first time during the year, that I had some slight second thoughts about our wedding plans. When my Mom paid for my wedding dress and watched me try on countless dress, I felt sad because she will not get to see me all dressed up that day. I also expressed to my fiancÚ that I was afraid I would regret this in the future. Maybe this was a bad choice.

I can't change my plans now (everything is paid for). I am just having some wedding woes that normally would make me reach for a McDonalds Big Mac. I know this is exactly what we wanted and is the best choice for our situation. But sometimes a girl gets second thoughts!

On another note, I have to admit that I felt really great in that dress last night, despite that I couldn't zip the darn thing up. I can't believe I am getting married in 10 weeks!! Yikes!!

    My daughter decided she didnt want a fuss so they just went off quitly with 4 friends and did it, she didnt want the hassle of relations she dodnt like pn both sides of our families there wasnt a lot of spare cash and they had been together for a few years anyway she says she has never regreted it though her MIL keeps on about it. Do what you feel is right and get plenty of photographs and maybe arrange a meal afyerwards for your close family even a small buffet where everyone can pitch in or maybe a bbq when weather permits emoticon

    I kinda am on the same page with you. If I were to get married again I just want to get married somewhere on a beach with only a MOH, best man and our parents and no one else.

No one can really say whether or not you will regret your situation. But if you can get your parents to attend, why not?

That's soo exciting 10 wks :) good luck!

Most of all make the right descision by you and no one else.

    I am sorry that people are offering their unwanted opinion about your wedding. When my sister got married, people did that. I don't know why people assume that it is their place to make comments about your wedding.

Does the hotel where you are staying offer a wedding coordinator? Maybe they could help you get dressed?

    Don't want to confuse you more, but just a thought..... what about if you had only immediate family at the wedding. could they pay their own way? If not, I'm sure the hotel would gladly provide someone that could help you zip your dress. Just remember it's all about what is best for you and you have to be completely satisfied with your choice.If being along is truly what you want if your family loves you they will honor and respect your decision. Like you said, it's not the first time around so sometimes quiet and private is best. Good luck and congrats! Happy wedding! emoticon
