I have been second guessing all the decisions I have made so far - my dress, my flowers, my reception dinner........
Is this normal?

As for the dress, there was an episode of "Say yes to the dress" where the bride was sure that she no longer wanted the dress she had chosen months before. After trying on tons of dresses in the store she realized that her original dress was still the right one. She just needed the seamstress to make a few design alterations to the dress and then it was perfect. I don't know if that helps but I thought I'd share that.
Hang in there and I hope you feel better in a few days!
BTW-- we are date and location twins! Where are you getting married in PV?

I started really planning things about 18 months ago, I went back and forth about so many things. Prime example -- and I'm still flip flopping on this one -- I am a 5 dress brides, yes I said 5 dresses!!!! And when I say 5, I personally have 4, although the one I'm likely to go with has yet to arrive. Luckily 2 are refundable and well the other 2 were not expensive so I can always re-sell.
As for photographer -- I went back and forth so many times on that one, even after we booked someone I still kept looking and asking for quotes from others. Why? I don't know, probably to torture myself. But now I am so so happy that we decided to go with our first choice, and feel blessed we've booked her.
I think it's true, there are so many choices out there for EVERYTHING!! And it doesn't help when so many gals on here share their wonderful finds, ideas, vendors -- you can't help but to think, "should I have done what they did?" It's totally normal, and for the most part, it's very helpful because then you have so many more options to choose from. But I think in the end, you will find more often than not, you will essentially end up with your first choice. At least that was what it was like for me.
So while this may be stressing you out now, enjoy it. We only become brides once, the planning can be both stressful and fun ~ the good thing is that you have lots of time before your wedding so you can always change things along the way.

Take a deep breath. Remember-this whole thing is about you and your soulmate, all the other details won't matter, you probably won't even remember them in 5 years.

My advice- go with your gut and stick with it. No need to stress yourself out to make everything "perfect." Not to be a Debbie Downer, but no matter how much planning you do something will go wrong. It may be a small thing, but the best lesson you can learn is to roll with the punches. Focus on the positive and have the best time of your life!

I think it's totally normal. Besides we, as women normally do that to ourselves anyway...Put in a stressful situation, it's bound to be worse.
Don't worry...Don't think about it for a day (which is so easier said then done!!) but tr4y not to and go back over things when you are more relaxed.
No worries! I'm sure everything you ahve is great!!
Oh & I totally agree that being on BDW makes it harder (in a good way)..Everytime a planning thread comes out, I see something else that I want!! LOL
