Have You Made Decisions that Weren't "You"?
I think when emotional events, (such as weddings) roll around there's a lot of pressure from everyone (and everywhere) to do things that other people want, expect, think is the norm, etc. And in an effort to please other people our visions and dreams get overlooked.
One of the things I love so very much about PW is that this community encourages brides (and grooms) to remember themselves in their wedding vision and expectations, rather than being a people-pleaser.
I bring this up because I have been in this situation. I have never been fond of doing anything "in the norm". Neither has FI. However, I still let other people push me into buying a traditionally colored wedding gown, which I always said I would never do. I have spent the last few months looking at my dresses (I bought a reception dress in an effort to "feel it" more, but it didn't help) and realized that wearing white/ivory is just not me. I mentioned it to my mom at my birthday this weekend and she gave me her blessing to wear a dress that was more me. FI's family may not take it as well, but I feel better knowing that I'm being true to myself.
So my question is: Do you feel like you have been pressured into making wedding related decisions that weren't what you wanted?
