This whole wedding-planning process has been surprisingly waffle-free for me. I mean, I’m not saying the decision-making has been all easy, sunshine and roses—there were plenty of vendors that I researched exhaustively before we finally picked one. But usually, we’ve been able to make a decision, stick with it, and move on.
But there are two decisions that I’ve been stressing about, even though we’re 95% sure where we’ll land with them. I just keep second-guessing myself. Should we spend the extra money for these little extras for our guests? Or should we save that money for more booze?
Decision number one is transportation. Because of the way Cape Cod accommodations are (lots of small, non-chain motels), our guests are likely to be scattered in hotels all over the place, and thinking about trying to coordinate stops at all those places without paying an arm and a leg for it makes my head hurt. Also, our open bar will be wine-and-beer only—i.e., harder to get wasted—and our guests are all adults and can figure out how to coordinate designated drivers. And actually, I’ve only ever been to one wedding where transportation was provided, so I don’t think it’s quite as prevalent as the wedding blogosphere would have us believe. It’ll be fine. Right? Right???
