I felt the same way.  I just wanted to get it over with!  (As awful as that sounds.)  I really did not enjoy anything about getting married, unfortunately, mainly because of the families we have to deal with.  My best advice is to listen to yourself and do what is right for you.

I don’t anymore. If anyone has any complaints or snark about anything they can kindly shove it. I know who to expect it from, and I’m well aware its just bitterness and jealousy on their part, so I’m gonna let them look stupid when they complain.

@LadyElva:  If we weren’t 5 weeks out, I would totally give all of this up for a nice DW…like my mom suggested in the first place. I’ll never let her know she’s right though haha.

Yo comprendo!

It is not so much that I don’t care about “the wedding” as it is that my big concerns are only making sure FI and I look good (vanity, anyone?), I have a bouquet, and we say our vows and love each other. Everything else is pretty much irrelevant.

haha I been there. I think being on wedding bee got me more excited. But all the little details other brides go over and over I could give two shits about. I’m luckly I have a FMIL who into diying and a wedding planner who gives me options to pick and brings “my vision” to life. Because in the grand scheme of things it just doens’t matter to me as much the big picture things like venue, music, and food.

If you don’t care too much and don’t want to be bothered, it might take some of the stress off you to pass on a lot of the remaining planning and decision making to people who do seem to care. No doubt they would be thrilled to take on the tasks and then you can just relax and all you have to do then is show up.

There is NOTHING wrong with wanting a small wedding.  Some people like the large weddings, some don’t.  Do what is right for you and your FI and don’t worry about the opinions of others.  I’m getting married later than many of my friends back home and I’ve had many of them even tell me they wished they would have had a small beach wedding like I’m planning.  Would have saved them money and stress.

I think you snuck into my brain and wrote this. I have nothing to add besides commiseration!

I agree. I mean, I want to be married to my FI, don’t get me wrong. I just feel I am going through the motions with planning. I don’t care about details.

You’re not alone 😉

While I highly cherish our vows, and the moment of our marriage ( ceremony) I couldn’t give two turtle shites about decor, reception, music, favors foods, color schemes, and all that jazz. I am all about marriage, and the efforts that come from that day forward- aka keeping things together, alive and well til death do you part.

 I invited my closest friends and family and we had a nice candlelight dinner to celebrate , under the moon and stars at a lovely family estate in a tropical location. I didn’t get caught up in all the “wedding” craze. Not that its wrong, and I have been to some awesome weddings and really appreciate every detail! Just wasn’t for me!

Best moment of my day was when it was over and i was sitting with my new husband eating the left over food from the wedding at 1:30 in the morning in our living room…and then we went to sleep 😉 😉
