Maybe once you start planning and things are more concrete, you’re “what-ifs” will slowly go away.  

I don’t suffer from that…sorry. Once my head hits the pillow, I’m out. It could quite possibly be my favorite part of the day.

I get it every so often. Last night linens were keeping me awake (why do they have to be so expensive?!?). Then I had a dream that I wore “business casual” for my wedding. It was a rough sleep night.

So, for me it’s totally normal. When I’m stressed or have lots on my mind sleep is hard to come by. I can only expect that it will get worse before it gets better.

Omgosh, sounds like me!!! I went through that when I first got engaged too about a year ago and it last for a few months actually.  I was nervous and scared and didnt really think I could pull off the whole wedding planning by myself, but now im 5 mnths away and im so grateful the FI is so helpful with the planning.  Alot has happened along the way, with my sister dropping out of being MOH through email and brother being unsupportive, blah blah blah, but when I think of how exciting our wedding day will be, it gives me something to look forward to, especially lying in the hot sun in Jamaica too! I think its pretty normal, I mean, we are experiencing something we’ve never experienced before in our lives, so as humans we are going to get anxious and scared, try reading a book before bed time, that usually helps for me

oooooh yes. I slept terribly for the first month I was engaged. I think that’s when everyone’s asking you a million questions about the wedding and for me, I was kind of panicking, thinking “Am I supposed to know all this STUFF!?”. (I was also really stressed with other things at the time, too, though). My biggest advice for you is not to worry if you’re not sleeping. If you’re not sleeping, get up. Get out of bed, go make a list, do something. The longer we spend in bed fretting about how we’re not sleeping, the worse the problem gets. And if you really need help, don’t hesitate to talk to your doctor!! Check out the thread I started, if you search INSOMNIA, the thread is called Insomnia – Who else suffers? Thankfully my insomnia is gone (whew) and I think a lot of that comes from realizing that planning is stressful, sure, but I am more adjusted to being engaged and now I am EXCITED!! If you need to talk feel free to message me anytime!! Good luck!

haha i’m not even engaged and i have that. even just talking about my maybe one day wedding with my bf and i like in bed until all hours of the morning just dreaming of everything, and making sure everything is perfect.

maybe take something to sleep for now until you start to get into the swing of things?

Yes!  I have been waking up in the middle of the night and my mind then starts racing about wedding plans! I thought I was the only one!

How long have you been engaged?  I couldn’t sleep well for a couple months post-engagement… and let’s not even talk about the crazy dreams that followed.  Welcome to the club!! 🙂

All of the times I’ve had insomnia in the last six months have been because I couldn’t stop thinking about wedding plans. Some of my best ideas have come in a state of near-sleep!

You’re not the only one. Happened to me just last week when my mom called me just before bedtime and asked me a bunch of questions about all the little details of the wedding that we haven’t gotten around to yet…. as well as making unreasonably demands. Sometimes, I just want to elope.
