After excitedly planning wedding decor, paper products, outfits, flowers, and music for nearly 2 years. I’ve realized that I just don’t give a darn anymore.
- Invitations went out late? Whatever.
- Invites arrive smeared and ripped? Meh.
- Haven’t ordered any decor? Blah.
I just don’t care. The only thing that matters is that my dress fits nicely and I get to marry FI. Am I alone this boat? It’s a pretty awesome boat, I’m not going to lie. lol

@OnceUponATime: yesssss. I go back and forth with stress and just an eff it attitude! Things seem to be mostly in place, just gotta find a reception dress, which I’ll get soonish, then figure out how to make an insane amount of food. The rest of it? Itll fall into place

@OnceUponATime: Haha you’re not alone! Sometimes I get really excited, but lately I’ve just been really stressed and annoyed with the whole wedding planning thing.
I think a lot of this is due to the fact that we still have a lot of things to do and very little time to do them.

OnceUponATime Oh yeah, except this couldn’t have hit at worse time! I’m planning my wedding and I’m the MOH in another wedding in September. The other MOH and I threw a shower/bachelorette 2 weeks ago for the other bride and it hit me when I was at Wal Mart at 12:30am the day before I was supposed to throw them; standing in the decoration aisle I looked at my cart and said F*** THIS and walked out. Luckily the shower and bachelorette went off without a hitch but,now I could care less about my own wedding now too. In fact, I’m drinking a glass of wine and enjoying the fact that I’m not freaking out about how to pay off our dj, finding my girls’ dresses, or working on my brooch bouquet.

Yep. Seriously do not care anymore. Printed our invites this weekend, my printer messed up and about ten of them have black ink smudges on the corners. I started to stress (oh no now I have to order more paper and the invites will go out late and people will have already made plans for that weekend and no one will come! etc.) and then I was suddenly struck by a wave of IDGAF. The text was perfectly legible; smeared invites went into the envelopes. This attitude seems to have spread to everything wedding-related now, and honestly, I’m loving it. So much less stressful!

haha so glad I’m not alone on this one!!

Yep, did way too much internet browsing in the beginning, got tons of ideas…and now I’m procrastinating. My wedding is now less than 8 weeks out and I’m printing addresses on envelopes as we speak. I just now got my tables/chairs rented. Linens and table decor – meh, I’ll figure it out. We finally decided to just rent tuxes vs. buying, so we just went and picked them out yesterday. Hopefully the guys will all go get measured within a few weeks…Food, only having the meat catered but I should probably be figuring that out also, huh? Cake, I have ideas, but no one to actually make it for me…
Lol, it will all come together for us! I have definitely learned that I would be an AWFUL wedding planner!

@OnceUponATime: HAHA yep!!!!! 110% I am 25 days away and still have SOOOO much stuff on my “to do list” but at this point we have my dress and his suit ready and all we need are the rings. Screw everything else if it doesn’t get done lol I am just ready to GET MARRIED FINALLY!!! (been engaged OVER 2 years and been with my FI for almost 12 years…it has been a long time coming!) I am just ready to celebrate!

I got to that point – I call it the “I don’t care phase.” My MIL kept asking me all these questions and I literally kept responding with “whatever” or “I don’t care.” She got really frustrated with me. My mother undersoon, but MIL did not.
You will get excited in as it gets closer, but this phase is normal!

My mom calls me The Anti Bride.
I picked the comfy dress over the sexy one, ruled out heels and up do’s and extra makeup… the BM’s picked their own dresses in a single shopping trip, children are welcome to attend and be children, my florist has free rein in the entire spectrum of muted colors, my mom and FI are making the caterer decisions, lil sis is picking cake flavors, I don’t yearn for a bachelorette party, and if my guests leave between the ceremony and reception because I don’t do a first look, then fine. If no one dances because I don’t have some gung ho DJ, fine.
I’m finnicky about music and not having a first look. Other than that, I have few opinions. Hearing that what opinions I do have will dwindle down is making me nervous. 😛

Yes – I am so over it.
My BM’s came over the other night to do wedding projects with me and asked me how do I want their hair, and what kind of jewerly do I want them to wear.
My response: I don’t give a f*^k.
The look on their face was priceless

Yeah, I was panicking a while ago about my centerpieces and needing to get them done. And then I got all the pieces for them and put them on top of a bookshelf and there they sit. Screw it, I’ll get them done.
As a matter of fact, right now I’m torn between “If I rented chair covers it would make the hall look so much more elegant” and “Wtf do I need to spend $200 on chair covers for? They’re Fing chairs and nobody is even going to look at them.” This bothers me so much that I will just not act on them because F it. Oh well. They’re chairs.

ugh, yes. I wish I would’ve gotten to this point ages ago when I started planning, so we could’ve had a simpler affair… Now that we have a down payment on our new house due, I added up all the outstanding payments left for our wedding and I feel literally sick. Wish I would’ve narrowed down the guest list, wish I wouldn’t have cared so much about some of the little details that are kind of expensive. Here’s hoping the sign-on bonus for my new job comes before the wedding, or my parents can give us a short-term loan until it does come….
