I took the week of my wedding off from work and I was so totally exhausted that I thought I might die. I was up at 7am every morning running errands and doing last minute things, every.single.day. To make it worse, we are in the middle of a kitchen remodel so not only did I not have anywhere to cook, there was construction going on in our house while we were running around trying to get ready for our wedding!

It’s been about 2 weeks and the exhaustion is still going strong. I feel as though I have so much to catch up on…changing insurance, work, house, working out, laundry, cleaning up leftover wedding stuff, thank you cards, gifts….omg. I’m hoping it dies down.

The only thing I knew to do was..go to bed when I was tired. There were some nights I was in bed by 9pm, LOL!

I feel the same way!! I’m so tired (and cranky)!! I just have all these things in my head that I need to get done and no time to do them.  I need to snap out of it, but it’s been hard lately so I totally understand where you are coming from!!

Ohh yes..I am tired, very tired.  Planning is stressful despite what everyone says that it’s the best time of your life it is still stressful.  I keep reminding myself that all the hardwork will pay off. I am really just looking forward to some normal afterward though!! Keep plugging away girls, it’ll all be worth it!!

@VegasSukie:  Are you me?

I’m feeling the same way (11 days, here).  I feel so pulled in different directions, that’s why I’m exhausted.  I need to focus on my job, but then I feel guilty about wedding stuff I should do.  I try and leave work at a decent time to work out, but then I feel guilty about work.  I definitely just need to get back to normal.  I don’t know what would happen if this engagement were any longer!

I think it’s totally normal.  Hang in there.  I felt the same way and was very cranky leading up to the wedding.  I was also really resentful that all my spare time was taken up.

Yup, same here.  Exhausted all the time and sick of spending all my free time doing DIYs and planning  I fall asleep on the couch every night early and still don’t want to wake up in the morning for work.  Everytime I give myself a break, I feel guility and continue to think about all the stuff needs to be done.  I’m looking forward to things getting back to normal, but I know I still have a while to go.  After the wedding and the honeymoon, there are thank yous and returns and finding places for all the new presents and name changing documents.  Oh my!

Me!!! I’m totally exhausted lately and I still have 4 months to go yacks!!! I’m taking a week off before the wedding and 3 after. I’m really thinking that week before will come in handy.

I try to sleep when my body tells me to and that really helps me with energy. I do try and sneak in a 30 minutes dancing workout when I can at home, whether it’s while I’m cleaning, or making a cake, I find a way to get going.

You are not alone!! I have been a cranky bi-atch to FI twice the past week- God bless him, he hasn’t snapped back. Just this week I’ve starting having wedding dreams- stupid stuff like the time line day of (had a totally bizarre one about my hair/makeup appointment.)

I am sick of wedding planning, sick of thinking about the things that need to get done, sick of my weekends being completely taken over by wedding errands/to-dos/crap.  I just can’t wait for all the planning to be over and the actual fun (wedding/honeymoon) to begin.”

This is absolutely me right now. Said to FI last night- “I’m going on a wedding strike…I’m done with all of this!”

This post makes me feel a LOT better, that I’m not the only one dealing with this! 🙂

YES.

Honestly, at this point I’m so sick of my own wedding…and it’s bad timing too because now we’re just getting to the point where everyone wants to ask me about it!

Wedding is in 3 days and I am freaking EXHAUSTED. I haven’t been able to eat or sleep and now I feel like I may be coming down with a cold. 🙁

Hang in there!!!  It’s like running that last mile… I know it feels exhausting and tedious, but stay strong.  Don’t forget to eat, have a glass of wine once in awhile, and rest if you need it.  =o)

@VegasSukie:  lmao, I always come up with new stuff to do also… STOP DOING THAT!!  I’m buried in DIY projects that I’ll never finish  *sigh*  It’s just not worth the stress and insanity to keep piling stuff on yourself.
