My fiance and I are struggling so much with wedding planning - we have no idea what we want to do. We like every idea and can't figure out how to decide which direction to go in. It was fun at first, envisioning a million different possible scenarios, but it's starting to get stressful. I'm great at taking action and planning things and feel like we're going to do great once we pick a direction to go in and need to actually start booking vendors and and getting things done, but this weird limbo of not even knowing what kind of wedding we want is so overwhelming!
We live in Boston, so one day I want to get married in a chic downtown location in the spring. Then the next day I want a summer wedding on the cape. And the next day I want a fall wedding at a rustic venue with tons of foliage and seasonal foods. And then I think of a sweet winter wedding in the mountains. Or maybe we just say to hell with planning a big wedding, let's just go to the courthouse and then throw a party! But oh, maybe we do want a big ceremony that everyone we love can be part of. We've done guest list drafts from 50 people to 200. I want a long traditional white dress one day and then something short and alternative the next. We want to go retro, then we want modern.
We can't pick a time of year, or a setting, or a guest list, or anything. It all sounds fun, and we have good ideas for each scenario.
How do people DO this? How did you decide what kind of wedding to have? Do you have any tips for how to start narrowing down your options when everything sounds like a good idea?
