    I’m with you, girl.  Not at all interested in any aspect of it.  Just want to be married and do not care about the details.  Sigh.

    it wouldn’t call it fun, but it was quick and stressfree.  my engagement was 7.5 months.  the first 2 months were busy and the last 2 months were busy and not much went on in between.

    I voted “It’s Okay”. It’s not horrible, and it certainly keeps my busy, but I feel like my life has been consumed with all things wedding, which isn’t awesome.

    Baybeejulia: it’s not the worst, but it’s another tedious task, like cleaning or filing. I certainly would never call it fun or enjoyable.

    I am a total Type A person who loves planning, lists, budgets etc. So yes I LOVED wedding planning and after it was over I got a bit of the wedding planning blues without anything to fill my time.

    Now I will say that without my amazing full time wedding planner our wedding certainly would have been overwhelming, even for my love of planning. It never got too stressful because she was there to help me through it all. She made a huge difference.

    Baybeejulia:  We haven’t even set a firm date yet (our wedding isn’t until spring 2015) and I’m not looking forward to anything else.  We’re planning a very small, very relaxed destination wedding and I would still rather elope.

    I’m totally with you! I hated it at first since I can barely throw a happy hour or dinner party without getting totally anxious. Also, finding a venue was a total nightmare! Now that I’ve hired a wedding planner it’s getting better. I still don’t *love* it though.

    I voted “I love it”. I totally love it! I enjoy making decisions and being organized. However, like a pp who said she loved it and she had a wedding planner, I ALSO have a wedding planner which makes it way more fun and less stressful. I wonder if that will be a noticeable pattern in this poll?

    i voted I hate it, but only because of personal reasons. i do enjoy the research and planning aspect, but i dont like what has become of certain “friendships” and the stress and some arguments in the beginning with FI. I dont enjoy people giving me their opinions of what they think i should do, or if they dont like certain aspects. i just want everyone to F off lol. in a nice way.

    Baybeejulia:  I am so with you! I usually enjoy hosting and am a researcher by nature, so I was excited to start my planning checklists, and loved being able to look through bridal magazines and Pinterest without thinking “someday”…at first.  

    Putting together a guest list and budget was fine, but then came looking into a venue. Every place had different set packages which made price comparison and figuring out logistics an absolute nightmare. It was also hard to look into other vendors since I couldn’t provide a venue location or set date.  Now that we’ve finally booked a venue, I’m hoping it’ll be a little easier now.

    Wedding is in a week! I was doing fine up until about 2 weeks ago and now I believe anyone who loves the final few weeks of planning is a masochist! lol. I am so exhausted and am desperately trying to schedule in some rest so I don’t crash on the day. I loved the “big picture” planning… selecting vendors and whatnot bit the finer details we’re dealing with right now are beyond me.

    Mine came in waves. First it was LOVE, like wedding stuff 24×7. Needless to say, pretty quickly I got burned out. I then took a pretty long break, didn’t force anything, and it slowly started becoming fun again. And then I hired an AMAZING DOC, and all of a sudden it’s just pure joy! All those little things I was worrying about/dreading? She will take care of them for me while I focus on color palettes, accessories, shoes, and other fun things. 🙂

    vip0802:  venue for me was the absolute WORST. Like, I was in tears way too many times to admit. 

    It does get better after that’s decided, I promise!
