My Fi is totally burned out on wedding details. He is sick of hearing about it, making lists about it, planning for it, he is burned out. On one hand, I understand, I am so excited to be his wife, and so over being a bride. I am not an organized person, and wedding planning in a foriegn country with a language barrier and different customs is not that much fun. However, The wedding still needs to get done, and I don’t want to just “Do it”. I want our wedding to be a creation that we worked through together. I know this may be idealistic, and maybe I will have to let this one go. But he has gotten REALLY distant over anything wedding related. If I mention weddings, he almost won’t talk to me. The wedding is just barely over 2 months away, psycho stress time, and my wing man is bailing. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Take a week of “no wedding”. I know it sound hard, but seven full days of you and him, just enjoying each other. During that week, really emphasize your relationship and how happy you are. Begin gently discussing the importance of the planning after that week. I think a week is a nice break from the conversations, lists, ideas, etc for him to just breathe. I know what you mean when someone can get burned out with wedding details, but like you said, it needs to get done. I wish you the best of luck and I couldn’t imagine planning a wedding in a different time zone, let alone country so power to ya lady!

Well, he is from here, his family is here, and we just moved here. So in a sense we are having the wedding only an hour away, but thank you, it’s hard. I imported almost everything from the US for DIY.
A week with no wedding things…that sounds impossible because my bridal shower is on Saturday and we are sending out our invitations May 1st. Maybe once the invitations are out we can take a break though.
