Yes! Me too, oh my gosh!  I got so sick of it that last month I ended up uninviting 100 people, cancelling our reception and planning a small 25 person wedding instead (fancy steakhouse for dinner.) I’m still so over it though lol. All I care about now are the photos looking nice and losing my last 15 pounds so I look good. As long as I get married and it looks pretty, I dont care what else happens. lol

i remember when i was at that point…. you just gotta push through it, and honestly, in the end, it’s such an accomplishment to know that you planned such an important event.   I’m so glad we did it ourselves(mostly me haha), and we didn’t get a planner.

ME! After trying and trying to plan something that would make everyone happy and be a big shindig (That I honestly didn’t want) I am SOO relieved we decided to kind of elope. No big wedding, no plans, no anything. We going to just get the license and head to the church with whoever can make it and then go out to dinner or something afterwards. Super low-key and stress-free. 🙂 I know that that route might not work for everyone, but after being in tears too many times because of guest lists or venues, I decided it just wasnt worth it to me. Good luck in the rest of your planning, and I hope your big day is perfect!

I seriously hate wedding planning. I never REALLY loved it but I did like it for a few months.

My wedding is in 6 weeks and I just want it over already. I had really not been doing anything at all but I bit the bullet and the past 2-3 days I’ve gotten a TON done.

I can’t really say I’m tired of the planning but the closer it gets, the more indecisive I get.  For some reason I just don’t want to make commitments.  Whether I’m buying something , and I think no I should wait until it goes on sale.  Or helping pick out the invites for bachelorette party and shower, what if I see something I like more.  And then with jewelry and shoes I’m like well is that going to look right. Errrrrr. I really just need to make decisions.  I already know, no one is going to really pay that much attention to these little details anyways lol

MEEEE!!! I was just telling somebody today that I wish our engagement had only been a year or less. I feel like everybody else got bored with the idea of it all and I’m in this alone now. My shower is in 2 months and not a single person who originally offered to help throw it has even mentioned it. In fact, over Christmas I don’t think one single family member even asked how planning was going. It’s really dissapointing, especially considering our main goal in all of this was to make our families happy (FI’s family especially has been going through some tough times). I know, I know. Lesson learned! I’m sure the actual day will make it all worth it…or at least I HOPE it does.

yes!! I feel like it would be easier if money was no object, but then again, even though we can pay for certain things, it feels ridiculous to spend so much on one day….but I hate feeling like I have to settle on things, venue, photographer, etc. I thought we had picked out our date, but then we couldn’t decide on a venue, and now it seems like we’ll have to have a brunch wedding to keep it nice, but that seems more spring-like and the girls look better in spring colors so now it feels like we have to change a date…so frustrating! wish we could elope to france!

I’m just sick of talking about it, and I’ve only been engaged a month. Everywhere I go people want to talk about my wedding. Sometimes I don’t want to talk about it!!!

@MrsB22:  Yes, THIS! Can’t we just talk about something and someone else? I don’t want to look at these favors you found on pinterest, I haven’t even picked a photographer or DJ or flourist! Or the fact that you think I NEED to get a videographer when I dont see the point in one? I feel like this is all I do now. Wedding wedding wedding! I still want to have a life!

I’m at that point too, so I sympathize.  We had a year and a half engagement, but in hindsight I think maybe 12-13 months is plenty (but we didn’t want a winter wedding so that’s just how it goes).  I’m just ready to be married already, lol.  Maybe take a short break from any planning/wedding talk and come back to it?  Hopefully you’ll feel refreshed 🙂  Good luck!
