I'm not having a dw either but my friend did and it was beautiful..... it was on myrtle beach!! They obviously had the beach theme lol...... we bought little bottles of bubbles shaped in a champagne botle let them dry out the night b4 and after the got married filled them up with the sand they stoodon and wrote on the tag "on this day, we said I do on this sand" something of that nature!!! It was sooo pretty!!!

Sounds beautiful! I think I would be stressed because I can't just drive by and see the venue when i wanted or harrass my vendors lol!

Hmmm....mine is sort of a destination wedding.  We live in TN but my fam and I are originally from New Orleans.  My FI is from TX so that's where the wedding will be.  It is definitely hard trying to plan from another state!  My major stressor is wondering if/how it will all come together!

I am!  I live in Chicago but am having my wedding in Maui.  So far I don't really have any fears, just overall excitement.  The planning has been pretty smooth so far honestly.

So far, there really hasn't been any stress but then again, I have an absolutely AMAZING wedding planner in Maui that is just incredibly on top of everything and doesn't hesitate to respond to my questions in less than 24 hours.

I had a DW and I think things went pretty well! The biggest stresser was making sure DH's mom got there. She waited to get her flight, DH's dad (no longer married) had to get her room...

I had a DW in the same city as milkgal, VEGAS!. My biggest fear was just making sure that we didn't forget anything at home that we needed.  That didn't happen.  I'm a list maker so I had a list for everything.  


We were able to go out to Vegas a couple of times before our wedding to confirm everything and see venues so that helped with any nervousness.


I think that having people that are well organized and communicate really well helps, too. Our coordinator at our reception venue, our photographer and our cake baker were amazing!
