Decisions are the BANE of my existence...

Yes, I said it. I’ll be open and honest and admit to my faults as a bride.

I HATE making decisions.

And that has absolutely nothing to do with being a bride, this is just me. But since I am a bride, and making decisions is pretty crucial to the whole wedding planning process, let me tell you that it’s driving me nuts.

There are SO many decisions to make. I totally get why people with unlimited funds in their budget would hire a bridal planning event to just do it all for them. Sure, they have the initial idea/concept, and they have to sign off on the final presentation, but all the little things that have to be decided day-in and day-out are done for them by someone else.

I just feel like although I’m making major progress each week (sometimes daily) on my To Do list, that there are a million and one things that I haven’t even started to think about yet. Or, rather, I started thinking of them and it was too hard, too time-consuming, or just too difficult that I have put it off. And now, at the 78 day mark before the wedding, I’m at the point where I can’t really put things off any longer. I need to start making some decisions to tie this whole thing together.

And since this is not really something that anyone else, besides B, can help me with...I’m pretty much stuck. My Maids are all so great, and every time I do a post on the looming To Do list, they all offer their services to see what they can do to help me out. But with this part of the plan, it’s pretty much on my shoulders.

So what kind of things have not been decided, you’re asking? Hmmm...ever heard of the rehearsal dinner? Yeah, haven’t even started on that one. No real decision has been made about the honeymoon...we know that we’re not going on a traditional honeymoon right away, but we want to do SOMETHING...with no real clue on what that something is. Seating charts have yet to be broached, along with what I will do for escort cards. I have not done a true mock-up of the centerpiece idea that I posted about here, that I’m 95% certain is the centerpiece that we’ll use. Ditto on the bouquets – have the stuff, just haven’t worked with them yet. Saw some CUTE vases yesterday at the store that I would LOVE to buy and work in somehow, but how? And for what? The bachelor/bachelorette party and the whole time line for us the days before the wedding has not been discussed or established again. And the list could go on and on...seriously on and on...

It’s nothing major. It’s nothing big. I keep telling myself that if none of that came together until the last minute, it would be ok. And it will be. I’m not stressed out about this at ALL, honestly I’m not. But I’m not motivated to work on any of it either...and did I mention that there were only 78 days left? I think that I did...
Any other brides out there hit this same roadblock? Just tired of making decisions and worried about how the whole thing is going to come together? How are you coping?
