I just about had a panic attack last night over this wedding and planning it all from so far away. Clearly I didnt really consider what I was getting myself into when we came up with our brilliant las vegas wedding idea and planning it from Australia (Could you get any further from Las Vegas than Australia?).
Now Ive already made deposits and sent save the dates so Im definitely still going ahead with the wedding in Vegas. But Im really struggling with planning from a distance. Poor FI had to deal with me completely freaking out about vendors, table settings, hair and make up, flowers - just about everything til about 1am last night becuase Im so panicked and anxious about everything. Because I havent SEEN anything or TOUCHED anything - its all just been what is available online. Im now at a stage where I am planning on re-jigging my budget to take a trip to LV in October/November this year just to try and alleviate my anxiety.
My mum lives in Canada so she will probably join me for the trip. At least we will be able to visit my venues, do some tastings, meet with my DOC, tour our suite, check out some floral, arrange linens/centrepieces etc. This will be an added $2k on our wedding budget for me to take this trip but I think I will be a mess come April 2014 if I dont go.
Can't wait to say 'I do' on April 14, 2014 - Planning Bio
