I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one getting pretty irrational about everything. No one seems to understand why I'm getting so anxious about things. There are ony 6 of us in total & all of the guests are FI's family. (I dont have any contact with my family & my close friends either have booked their holidays for this year or can't afford the trip). I guess I just feel a little out on a limb.
Like you say, I think we have to feel 100% happy with the dresses we pick but it's so hard trying to find something that you love & also appropriate for a destination wedding. I'm sure your dress will look stunning. Do you have any pictures?
We're just starting to plan music. I thought it would be easier to have the steel drums for the 2 hour reception, but now I'm not so sure because I think we have to provide them with the music we want them to play. I might ask Dania if they have set music. We're left with finding music for guests prior to arrival of FI, my arrival, signing of register, recessional & whether or not to have music for the 30 mins Hors d'oeurves. What do you think?
High heels or kittens.... I'm having a similar problem. I live in my heels but FI is the same height as me & if I go for my usual 4" I'm going to tower over him in the photos. That said, it's never bothered me before. LOL. What are your worries about them, do you normally wear high heels?
I'll let you know how it goes on Monday with FMIL & the dress.

I am going for my final fitting on Friday so hopefully I'll calm down after that.
I have quite a bit still to do - Sandals asked us to choose some songs which we havent done yet (it wasnt something we particularly wanted to do) and I need to decide on hair - it'll definitely be up though. Im also having a drama over high shoes or kitten heels although I guess its a pretty small thing!!
I have become pretty irrational about everything so if I were you I'd value the opinions of those people around you. But you only do it once so you have to have the dress you want! I think the FMIL is a good plan - let me know what you decide. Whatever it is I dont think you'll be worrying about it on the day!
