  • Wedding: July 2009

I really should be taking a break now as I’m behind on work and the fact I spend a lot of time online looking at wedding blogs my be a factor.

In June we moved the wedding up a year sooner (July ’10- yikes!) and I started stressing out instantly… and then I realized EVERYTHING in my life revolved around “my wedding, our wedding” and ideas for it. No one told me to shut-up, but I figured it was boring to hear about all the time. So… I took a week off. No wedding blogs. No magazines. No internet searches. NOTHING.

And in the end I realized I really do have other interests besides being compulsive and worrying about the weather 7 months from now and what exact shade of green I will use.

Since then I try to cut-out a lot of wedding chatter unless someone asks, I also subscribed to non-wedding blogs to remind myself I have other interests too!

You should take a break- and stick to it! Your wedding sounds a lot like mine -outside, on a plantation, in the summer, and lots of DYI! Good Luck

I feel like im in a slump with wedding planning and have focused my energy on working out instead (for the sake of my wedding dress.) That’s some sort of positive wedding homework?

I got engaged in March and then did a lot of wedding stuff in April in May. Over the summer I took a bit of a break from the planning. I think it’s a healthy thing to do!

Take a break. I’ve been on here but really haven’t done a thing for a few weeks. I’m just sick of it all.

I think you can. I’m about to take a break too to buy a house. 🙂

Take a break until 2010 and enjoy the holidays! I’m also getting married in August next year and have booked the same stuff as you plus my photog and dress. Those were my goals for this year and then next year the rest will happen on it’s own. I haven’t done any wedding stuff for a week and it feels great!  I still read the wedding blogs though. And go on the bee. Obviously. 😉

Yes, take a break!  I do the same thing whenever I feel burnt out by all of it.  You have plenty of time before your wedding to take care of things.
