I realize this might be a silly post considering this is a wedding blog site, but besides coming on here to exchange great advice and ideas with other brides, do you ever get tired of talking about the wedding?
My wedding is in 30 days…exactly. Planning has been full of drama and road blocks at every turn. At this point, I just wish it were here already so I could be married to my best friend and the man I love. It seems that every day some conversation happens about the wedding; with vendors, with friends, with family, with FI discussing what we still need to get done, etc.
Every now and then I just wish I could have a wedding free day, LOL. Just the other night after finding out it was going to cost us thousands to ship some things to our destination wedding, my FI tried to say something about the wedding and I looked at him and (as calmly as I could) asked “Can we just NOT talk about the wedding for the rest of the night?”. He just laughed and agreed…and it was so peaceful.
Am I crazy? Am I being dramatic? Does anyone else feel like this sometimes? Should I be more enthused at this point?

I feel for you 100% our whole planning process has had one big black cloud over it due to issues with FI’s family. I feel like now when people ask me about the wedding it almost puts me in a bad mood, because it hasn’t been the most joyous planning period. I can’t wait for the wedding and to not have to stress out about everything anymore, and to not have people constantly picking apart everything FI and I decide upon! I just love my FI and want us to be married and finally just look at people when they start to bug us and say ok well good bye we have to go home now and don’t care what you think because we won’t be seeing you in a month an a half at our wedding.

Well I’ll talk about other stuff with you. I’m a dude, so weddings aren’t my forte.

I love talking about the wedding on here and with my friends getting married but not with people who have no idea about wedding planning b/c they think “what else do you have to do? you have a dress right?”

I hear ya! Everyone who asks a question, has an answer and usually a critical one: why are you doing that, at my wedding I did it this way, you have too much to do and you’ll never finish on time, blah blah blah. Fiance is sick to death of it and so am I, grrr! I am sure you are enthusiastic about the wedding day itself, it’s just getting there that’s the uphill battle!

Absolutely! I get tired of saying “So I was thinking about the wedding and…” And I’m still 9 months out!! I’m looking forward to school starting in about a week and a half just so I’ll have something else to focus on. lol

Hey date twin!
I don’t talk much about the wedding to anyone other than FI, but yes I’ll agree that it gets old. Thankfully we’re in the home stretch so it won’t be a concern for much longer. 🙂

I’m not tired of talking about the wedding, exactly. Moreso, I’m tired of talking about the wedding and it feeling like the wedding is never going to get here!

Thank You…I thought I was the only one!
@mishelleez- I completely understand what you are saying! People who aren’t getting married tend to ask the same questions over and over. “Do you have a dress?” Of course I have a dress…I am getting married in 30 days! LOL

I mean, I was so glad it was over afterwards! I’m still on the boards, haha b/c I’m totally addicted to this site, but sooo thankful I’m not planning a wedding anymore!

37 days to go until my wedding & I started feeling that way about a week & 1/2 ago!! There’s just sooo much to do. While its been fun, I’m just so tired of stressing out over the tiniest detail that I know NO one else will even notice!!! I’ve never had to make so many decisions in my life. I’m guessing feeling this way is pretty normal. And while I havent had too much drama, my future mother-in-law hasn’t made things easy… and I’m already nervous about the crazyness she’s going to bring to the wedding weekend!! Can’t wait to just be on our honeymoon w/ my sweet handsome soon to be hubby!!

I am excited about it but I think other people are tired of me talking about it. Its the only thing I have though! LOL no really I hardly ever plan parties or host events and this is like my baby.

@soontobewalsh: I am completely in the same boat as you. I just want one day, one hour, one minute or even one second of NOT thinking or talking about the wedding.
I dont want to talk about the ceremony arrangement or what music we are going to play. I don’t want to talk about the number of guests or if Aunt Bea is going to eat the whole buffet.
I just want to curl up on my bed afterwork with a good book and a cup of coffee and relax.
I don’t want to be “that bride” that gets all caught up in the wedding and lives her life for the wedding and then at the end feels depressed because it is over and she doesn’t have anything to occupy her time. I have seen it and it is sad.

I feel exactly the same way! I’m getting married on 9/18 this year, too…I guess at this point we’ve had our fill of planning (even though we’ve had a quick engagement and relatively low-key planning). I don’t want to deal with the details anymore, just want to see everyone at the wedding and be married!
