Wow. I heard myself say this today when I was talking to a vendor on the phone. I was talking to a restaurant about using a private room--they don't advertise it for weddings, just more like parties, rehearsal dinners, etc... So I was talking to her like I had to "convince" her that it was no big deal.
I heard myself say this and I just got this twinge I get sometimes while I'm planning this. My small-ish event isn't any less important or significant than anyone else's, first time, fifth time, doesn't matter. I don't want a "circus wedding". I just want a special day for the beginning of my new family. But a lot of the planning for it is making me feel bad.
Then I got mad at the people (I feel like) are giving me that attitude about it. And nobody said or did anything, except me!
This whole event is a tricky thing...
