hahaha! i totally feel you! i am really into planning my own wedding, and my best friend is getting married too so we chat a lot. but sometimes, i just have to take a break. it gets so overwhelming and almost annoying after awhile!

i bet you will feel differently when it’s your own, but…is there anyway you can start phasing wedding things out now, so you can feel excited and fresh about all this stuff when it is your turn?

I would actually recommend sitting on your own plans for a while after getting engaged. That way you can enjoy the fun of the engagement for a while before getting into the nitty, gritty, and usually stressful wedding planning.

I actually took ~4 months to just relax and think about what I wanted, then we decided to get married this summer which left me with about 6 months to plan, it seems fast, but it hasn’t been too bad.

I will also say, I get wedding burnout sometimes with my own wedding. When that happens I just ignore it for a few days until I feel better. The interest/drive tends to come back pretty quickly πŸ™‚

Tell your friends that you need a wedding break.  Explain you are happy to help them plan, but you’re getting a bit burned out.  Hopefully they will understand.

At times I feel like this wedding has taken over my life.  FI and I joke around about how we can’t wait to have free time again!  Some times I get burned out and take a break, other times I push through.  I’m still excited, but other sometimes other things in my life are priority and wedding planning is put on the back burner.

Sounds to me like your friends are asking just a little bit to much out of you! Just because you’re a bridesmaid doesn’t mean you’re a slave to their every demand.  You deserve to enjoy your own wedding planning, too!  My advice is when he proposes, just enjoy your ENGAGEMENT for a while!  Don’t dive into planning too soon because once you do, it’s hard to stop lol.
