My name is Sarah. I get to marry my amazing man and best friend in January. I am 27 and this will be my second marriage, he is 22 and his first. My family is 100% on board, his still has reservations (the fact that I'm older and have been married) but at really doesn't matter. Majid is my fiance's name, he is your typical guy, not super interested in most wedding stuff. But he does let me talk his ear off about it so I appreciate that. We are having an outdoor ceremony/indoor reception, plated dinner, about 50 guests.
I am struggling with something at the moment. I'm having a hard time not wanting to incorporate things that I did in my 1st wedding in to my 2nd. Little things such as at my 1st we had a large board with seating arrangements, now I just want place cards but people are saying it would be too confusing for guests to find their seats. 1st wedding colors were blue and green, Majid really wants blue and burlap, it's a different blue but still weird to me. Maid of honor and bridesmaid in 1st would be the exact same, just adding 2 more, for my 2nd.
I try to explain this stuff to Majid but it's hard because I'm afraid he's going to think I'm still emotionally attached to that wedding in some way, which I definitely am not.
Please tell me this all makes sense to someone else and what you did to get over it.
