i have become so engrossed in the wedding planning process that i think about it ALL the time and every where i go! its overwhelming at times. and i really have to check myself to not talk about it too much so as not to annoy other people, but that is SO hard when its ALL i think about!
a funny example. i was hanging out with my male friend one evening. and in his office (forget why we were in there), i saw a wine box and i asked “is that a wine box” which launched into a whole discussion about what i am doing for my ceremony. then i saw a fancy bottle opener, and launched into a whole discussion about how that would make a great wedding favor for a destination wedding! he said he actually got it as a wedding favor!
then after both those convos, he said “wow, i can’t believe you found 2 random things in this room that were related to your wedding, i never would have guessed or thought of wedding at all in here!”
his comment made me totally realize what intense “wedding brain” i have!
anyone else like this?

Yes!! I do it, too! I’ve become obsessed and my fiancee, friends, and family are sick of hearing about it. My fiancee actually got really upset one day because he said it had taken over my life and that’s all I did or thought about. I’ve tried to tone it down…

Same thing happens when you are pregnant- everywhere you look there are things to do with babies.

@KendraJ: I know how that is, my OH gets upset at me because “that is all I ever talk about” and its kinda true but I can’t help it its just so exciting!

I think I am in the minority of the brides. The most wedding related activity I do is visit weddingbee on a daily basis. I am always up for talking to my friends about their weddings but if you want any details about my wedding you practically have to torture me to get me to spit it out. I think thinking about my wedding (planning/paying for it, not the marriage itself) stresses me out so much that I pretty much avoid it at all costs.

@MissTatas: i think i am pretty good with keeping my details to myself. because i want people to ooh and ahh when they see everything for the first time. but in terms of how my mind works, i am OBSESSED. and i guess my FI gets it all since i don’t need to refrain from keeping details from him!
