I know that at the end of the day, so long as S and I are husband and wife then it's a success. but I want to be happy with it, and he does too, and I want the girls to be included at happy.

but then there's keeping family happy and not hurting feelings and all that.

It's HARD! we've started over from square one more times then I care to count any more. and right now it's all up in the air I want to just cry.

ugh. just needed to vent

That sounds complicated I've never heard anyone say "my wedding was really easy" so luckily you are not alone.

It seems to be more about making others happy rather than yourself sometimes.

take a big breath-weddings are hard, marriage is harder--let this wedding be an opportunity to draw the five of you, plus your families together. Easier said than done of course, but the memories built will be worth more than the cake and photos

Yes, weddings are a lot of work! I'm a wedding officiant, and I can honestly tell you that the smaller & more intimate a wedding is, the more special it is. I officiated a wedding on new year's eve last week, where they had their immediate family, 2 friends, and their kids. It was in their back yard, and there was not a dry eye in the place. Then, I got a call from a couple who wanted to elope a few days later. I drew up a ceremony that was special to them, and they got married in a hotel suite, just them and two witnesses. Again, they were so in the moment, it took my breath away. My point is - just try to remember what's important to you, and make sure you stick to that general idea. I know it is hard, but it's a good guideline!

Getting married is no work at all, weddings are. That's why we scrapped our wedding plans, went to the JOP, and went on an awesome 7 day honeymoon. We used the rest of the wedding money on a down payment for our house, and had a house two months before we got married. I wouldn't change anything at all about it.

Don't try to please anyone! If they want to plan a wedding or have their hand in one, tell them to go have one of their own!

Run away! I can say my wedding was pretty easy, we flew to Jamaica invited everyone unfortunately only 36 people could make it. When people would say we can't make it to Jamaica; money, work, children etc. We just apologized. But everyone was invited no one got left out and there was no pairing down the guest list, yet I still got my intimate wedding. The resort handled all of it we got married in the afternoon took a nap and had a dinner reception. It was a blast. We chose a kid friendly resort (I have young siblings).
