So my wedding is 3 weeks away. I should be flying as a bride to be! You know it is only once in your life!
I don’t feel like a bride to be. I’m not excited, I’m not super happy, I’m just…
I’m trying to listen to the songs that’ll be played in my house on my big day to feel a bit excited but it is useless..
I have to live every minute of it and I should be SO excited!
Has anyone felt/ or feeling the same? Any suggestions to make it better?
Let me know bees! Thank youuuuu

Wow! Three weeks out! I can see why you’re concerned for not being excited. There are a lot of factors that I’m sure could contribute to this.
1.) Are you a do-it-all-yourself bride who’s done everything (or at least feels like they’ve done everything) in preperation for the wedding? If so, you could just be so tired and burned out you’re too tired to get excited.
2.) Is it the opposite? Has everyone else had a hand planning your wedding to the point where you don’t feel it’s “yours”. It would be normal not to be excited if you feel the big day is more about mom reliving hers then creating yours.
3.) Are you having second thoughts? Not being sure you are making the right choice could be a huge reason why you’re not excited.
4.) Are you in good standing with your family? Have you lost a parent lately? Is there a lot of hight drama expected? The anticipation of issues during your day could lead to you turning to a rather apathetic outlook?
5.) Have you gone way over budget? If so it could be guilt keeping you from enjoying the moment.
6.) Are you in general a non-excitable person? Some people just don’t get excited. Maybe you’re the type of person that realises if they get too excited, too early the next three weeks will lag so your keeping calm?
I guess what I’m saying is you should try to figure out why you’re not excited! Sounds to me like you’ve just spent so much time planning your wedding you’ve gotten to the point where though you’d hate to admit it, you’re ready for it to be over. Don’t feel bad, it happens to everyone when they’ve thrown a lot of energy in to a project. You’ll get your second wind! Don’t worry!

@musicalrose: Honestly, my Fiance lives abroad he is coming on April 3 with my Future Mother-In-Law so I had to plan the wedding all by myself.. Ya there is relative drama… but they shouldn’t let me feel this way…
So ya I totally agree with 1 and 4 so true and number 6 maybe? I don’t know why but I think I’m afraid to show my excitment of even be excited thinking maybe something bad happened and everything would be over…
