second guesses...

You already know by now how much I was having doubts about my wedding gown. But that is one tiny thing on a whole laundry list of things I have had doubts about while planning this shin-dig. The pictures below will illustrate what I'm talking about...

The first gorgeous picture comes to us from Kate Botwinski Photography and I found it on www.oncewed.comIt's completely stunning pictures like this one that make me think I'll regret not having a veil. I see this and I think "that could be me!" or "I need a picture JUST like this one!" But sadly, I will not get that chance. C'est la vie.

Next up is from Allegro Photography, and it can be found on www.stylemepretty.comWhile this picture is beautiful, it reinforces that I am glad I made the decision to get married outdoors. That aside, it makes me long for those adorable tutu dresses the flower girls are wearing! I knew from before we even got engaged that I wanted to have flower girls in tutu dresses. However, my fiance not exactly loving the idea, and fearing what my nieces would really think if I wanted to put them in these frilly things, I opted for a simpler approach. They will still be the cutest things you're ever seen, but thanks to this picture I still wonder "what if..."

Here we have a picture from Paul Morse, found on www.districtweddings.com This one is SO fun and in short, it really makes me wish I was getting married in the city. I had checked out a hotel in the Inner Harbor in Baltimore before we decided on CBF and I keep thinking, we could have made it work. How great would it be to have glamorous pictures taken at night, in the middle of a bustling city, where it seems everything is revolving around you? Romantic, I know.

At the end of the day though, I realize that all of the decisions I've made are decisions I wanted at some point, and even still want. I can't have a wedding on a beach, and in a city, and in a vineyard all at the same time! I know that even if I did have a veil I'd be thinking "what would I look like without it?" or simply "this stupid thing keeps getting in my way!" and the same goes for all the other doubts. If I had them, I would ultimately want something else. I know my wedding will be wonderful, and the most important thing is that Patrick and I will be married when all is said and done. And my husband-to-be is the one aspect of this wedding I do not have doubts about! Thank goodness for that!

Great point Kay!

You are also going to have pictures created from moments that none of us have seen in any of these blogs!! And, I think THAT is pretty cool and exciting.

You need to stop looking at all those other blogs etc... Remember, the purpose of the wedding is to marry Patrick and that could be accomplished in any number of ways! Trust me when I say all that stuff won't matter in 5, 10, 15 etc. years. Your wedding will be great no matter what dresses you choose, where you have it or what the weather is like! And at the end of the day you will be married to a great guy-for all eternity!!! (ha-ha).
