Basically I want to be married, but I’m the more I think about the wedding the more I just think “I just want to be done with it all”. All plans are to have a small wedding next August before our honeymoon (the only date that is set in stone). The more I think about the wedding the smaller and smaller I want it to be (I know opposite the usual). My FI just wants to be married, and we’re starting the big plan to save up for a house. My parents have offered that whatever we don’t spend on the wedding goes toward our downpayment.
We live four hours from Las Vegas and I am really leaning toward a nice, but small wedding there. Problem is that my FI says anything I want to do for the wedding, BUT Vegas.
It just seems like a huge amonut of money, we’ve been together for over four years, and I just get frustrated that everyone (who was pushing for a quick and simple wedding) is now saying no when that’s what I want. I tend to be impatient, but this is driving me nuts!

@renwoman: Me. 1000 times me. I am the same way… the more I think about wedding planning, the less I want to have a wedding. I am dreading the whole thing and keep putting it off. I’m not sure what I’m going to do once I graduate and no longer have school as my excuse for not getting the wedding ball rolling!! Sigh.

Oh man! I totally feel this way. The farther I get, the more I wish we’d just elope. I keep going back to the fact that I’d regret it one day if I did.

@MoodyFoodie: My biggest regret is letting my mom pay for my wedding dress! It is seriously stressing me out, because I know how much she wants to see me WEAR that wedding dress. If it weren’t for that, I’d elope in a heartbeat.

we hit our 3 weeks to go mark on Sunday and I’m so over it. I pretty much am just out of steam. Thankfully soon to be Mr. Pugs and Unicorn has all the steam for both of us. I just don’t want to think about it, I just want to show up look awesome and get married 🙂

@renwoman: I felt the same way before our wedding. I loved our wedding, but I would NEVER do it again without help 🙂 Way too stressful. If I could go back, I would hire a full-time planner! Then everyone could bug the planner for an entire year and throughout the wedding day 🙂 I’m a perfectionist so I only hired a DOC to coordinate our wedding day. I think full coordination would have been worth every penny.

Me! I can’t wait to be married! Thinking about weddings and everyone else’s feelings is exhausting me. I am already making it teeny tiny but there is still so many opinions and what not.

I feel this way off and on. As it gets closer, I know this feeling will get stronger. 3 months to go!
