Can everyone please remind me why wedding planning is fun?
I don’t know why I’m struggling. I’m SO looking forward to marrying my FI. I guess I’ve just been so busy trying to work on my own business I’m a little stressed out..
Or maybe its that I have trouble getting to “real” planning because for some reason I feel embarrassed to talk about these things with my parents. I don’t know why, I just never feel comfortable telling them about my personal things, wedding planning, etc. Weird, I know. Don’t know how to explain it..
I don’t know what it is. I was so excited but shortly before I got engaged when I started doing a lot of work I just lost my spark.
The wedding is probably about 20months away… what can I be focusing on doing? Or even just looking at? Please help me! =) We’re probably having a DW… I was supposed to talk to the planner this week but she had to reschedule for today and then didn’t hear..
I just want to be excited!! Has this happened to anyone else?

I think you’ve got plenty of time to WAIT before planning. Our total engagement is 5 months. You have 4 times that! If I can do EVERYTHING in 1/4 of your engagement period, you surely don’t have to be planning every detail now. Just wait, feel it out, and give yourself room to breathe and your ideas time to formulate. When the spark comes back, look at wedding inspiration and think of ideas. When you get sick of it – you can quit! Because you have TIME, something many of us covet in that regard! 🙂
And I understand what you mean about talking to your parents. I feel weird about it, too. Especially with my dad! But I just started talking about it little by little. And bringing it up totally randomly without feeling like I have to “ease into” the topic. They don’t mind at all. We don’t see eye to eye on everything but I think it is definitely bringing us together and helping us bond, none the less.

I’m a little bit afraid that if I don’t get myself at least excited now that I won’t have anything ready because I won’t get that excitement back later. Also, I want to get out STDs probably a year before the wedding, as its a DW to Ireland and a decent amount of $$ for guests..Just feeling uninspired.
SO glad you have a similar thing with your parents though and its working out. They were pretty excited, but for some reason I was feeling weird about it! I hope it’ll bring us together like you said. Thanks! =)
