So before I dive deep into my burning question, let me give you a little background of my situation. I am recently engaged to my boyfriend of 14 years (! and no this is not a typo, and yes I am 28 years old). We are just one of those rare couples that have been together since middle school! Haha I know its crazy, but I guess this is one of the many factors that is making my wedding planning so hard! We had always talked about a short engagement so we would like to get married in the beginning of of next year (2014). But here comes the obstacles....it is less than a year out so most venues have all their Saturdays booked. Our real anniversary is March 2nd so I would love to get married on that weekend, and Friday February 28th happens to be available at the venue of my dreams! BUT....my sister in law is pregnant and is due Feb. 4th so I feel really bad that she will have only 3 weeks to recover. The next date that would be available is March 7th, BUT there is another wedding on that date that will cause guests to have to choose which wedding to attend. So...the next date is March 21st, BUT that is the weekend before spring break (I live in Florida) and all hotels are not willing to block rooms for the wedding party because of this!! Uhhhhh!!!
So now to my question....It feels like there are never ending obstacles to planning a wedding and I was just wondering if any one else has encountered this and if it is normal/inevitable? I just want to have a nice laid back celebration but I am just in the beginning trying to pick a venue and already I have all these tough decisions!
