TO @loving_life: ahh, I think that is pretty normal as well. Planning a Wedding is stressful… even a small Wedding.
Mr TTR and I went thru a phase (thank goodness it was a short one) where I was most definitely stressed out prior to the Wedding… about 2 months out from the date.
It was in the weeks before we left on our Pre-Wedding Trip (that would evolve into the Wedding & Honeymoon, as we were Eloping)
I was tired, and a bit burned out. I felt that there was still sooooo much left to do, and with going on Vacation, Getting Married, followed by the Honeymoon and then coming home and having the Back Home Reception, I felt that there wasn’t any way that I could get everything I wanted or needed to do accomplished in the time that remained. And there weren’t going to be any “second chances”… stuff had to be completed BEFORE we left cause we’d be “on the road” for close to 6 weeks.
Many people find preparing for a trip stressful… Washing, Packing, Organizing etc. ADD in the fact our trip was over Christmas, had a Wedding in the Middle and a Honeymoon at the end, and covered 1 Province, 14 States, and 8 Countries (and 3 different climates) and the packing alone was a nightmare !!
Ya I was rather snippy there for a week or so !!
Mr TTR was a doll tho, he recognized that I was stressing out so he gave me a wide bearth (permission to vent more than normal), and instead of withdrawing, he actually stepped up his game to help me thru it. He was really really sweet that way.
And so ya, it was a nice thing when we were finally on our way… and enojoying our holiday together… that was most certainly the “romantic” bit that I spoke of above to the OP. The fact that he was able to be so attentive to what I needed whether it was before we left with oodles to do (and him pouring me a glass of wine, or running a bath for me at the end of the day) or when we were on our Christmas Vacation and he came back to the Condo with a bunch of flowers from the Grocery Store, or getting up ahead of me, and letting me sleep, while he was in the kitchen making me a surprise breakfast in bed… he was a sweetheart for sure !!
