Sometimes I feel like all I talk about my Fiance these days is wedding related, it is all I think about and I can’t even remember the last time I had a good old foot loose and fancy free (for lack of a better way of putting it) time with my FI without worrying about wedding related stuff…ugh, it is getting so annoying because I feel like he doesn’t even remember who I was before I went tasking him with things and discussing wedding stuff and asking his opinion, etc. I feel like it is his day too and I want him to be included, but how much is too much??? Also, how do I get myself to stop thinking about details and stressing out so I can have fun with the man I love and want to spend the rest of my life with?
I’m definitely guilty of wishing that we could just go back to dating so that I wouldn’t have to plan anymore and spend so much money all the time. However, I know though that I am going to spend the rest of my life with an amazing man that is my best friend and that once 10/10/10 is a day in history, I will be relaxing in Fiji….ahhhhh.

I’m pretty sure this feeling is normal. Make a date and DON’T discuss the wedding at all! Go swing dancing! Go to the restaurant you first went to together. Go to a museum!
Do something that will stimulate conversation and make you remember why you fell in love 🙂

A few weeks ago, we went away for a weekend and banned wedding talk. It did wonders! We felt really reconnected, and the relaxation gave me the energy boost I needed.

Good Ideas! It is his BDAY this weekend, so I think I am going to take him to the Wild Animal Park (here in SD) and out to a Brewery for dinner, it should be a good time to not talk wedding and drink some yummy beer…definitely looking forward to it.

I agree, we try to avoid wedding talk at all except for two pre-determined blocks during the week. Chris and I also decided early on that we would each have distinct tasks, like, he is totally 100% in charge of the cake, DJ, music, etc etc and I am only allowed to give my opinions on these subjects if he asks. Maybe you can assign him tasks so that you don’t constantly feel like you are bombarding him with wedding stuff.
PS. We are getting married October 9, so best of luck on the home stretch

Glad to hear that it isn’t weird to distinctively cut it out of conversation, except for during certain times.
@ALLYNK43 – Good luck to you too!!
