i'm not a center of attention type and the attention of a wedding was one of my anxieties but, and perhaps it was because my wedding was smaller with mostly close friends and family (about 120 people) it wasn't as a big a deal as i thought
1. we didn't do the typical receiving lines, and a lot of the things that force the bridge and groom to interact.
2. since they were close friends and family i guess i felt very comfortable around them
3. i felt so busy and consumed with various things that i didn't even feel compelled or needed to sort of be the center of attention.
in a lot of ways a bride and groom are kind of relegated to sideshow at a wedding. they have so many obligations (photos, dances, speeches, etc) that the actual interaction with attendees is limited.1

I want to get married. It's my number one goal in life right now (already accomplished all the other stuff I want to do right now lol)
But I am TERRIFIED of public speaking and I HATE being the center of attention. And I also keep my PDA and verbal expressions of love about my SO between he and I.
So I'm genuinely afraid of having a wedding because I absolutely do not want to get up in front of people and speak about my affection for him. I don't want to speak in front of people. I don't want people to watch us kiss. I don't want to write my own vows.
I'll go up there, say "I do," and then get out of there as fast as possible lol
HE wants a wedding. And I do too... but I also don't (reasons I just listed) so it's a tricky spot to be in lmao1
