It's funny in a sad sort of way, it was always entertaining to look at other people's weddings before my own and to see what they would come up with. Some people go all out with a high class place complete with plate chargers and silk napkins
I'm more of a paper napkin and plastic plate person myself so catching any of those $50,000 weddings never stirred my deep waters of envy. If anything it made me happy we were so simple as it was one less thing to worry about and a lot less money spent.
But now my wedding is over along with a lot of other peoples in the blog'o'ball and we're all posting our re-caps/fun pro pics at the same time. Seeing how other peoples visions turned out makes our wedding feel like the weird little knicknack you got once on a lark and now keep in the closet.
Basically, while our wedding was good enough for me it just doesn't feel like it's really good enough to share with the world wide web and I've been second guessing putting any pictures up thinking "There's no way anyone really cares, or it's helping anyone." Or there are those really evil little thoughts "You know everyone's just laughing at it, right?" (thanks The Knot)
Maybe it's my little introverted thoughts but while I always at first want to show off one of my artistic endevours, after it's been out for a little while I begin to see all the cracks and faults and promptly want to take it all back.
And I just want to stress that no I don't regret wearing a tail or having a halloween reception, I'm just not sure if any of you really want to see pictures anymore.
So while I debate and decide here are two comparisons of my head table and a fancy wedding's one:
A nice expected head table.
And then there was our mess
Am I the only other crazy person who really doesn't want to share pictures for fear they don't measure up?
