But I’m not. After waiting about seven months for my dress to come in, the store called me today to tell me that my dress will be delivered July 1st. It’s sad but I really don’t really care right now. This wedding planning has been such a disaster; there have been so many family issues that have caused serious problems between my FI and I. We never had problems before, but things seem to be falling apart right now. And we are getting married in three months. What should be a happy time, isn’t, and I am so sad over it. I hate that so many people have created so many problems.
I am really, really hoping that once I go and try the dress on, I will forget about all of the nonsense that has gone on, and be more into the wedding spirit again.

I’m sorry you’re having such a rough time. I hope when you try your dress on that things start to look up!

@AlmostHisWife: Take a deep breath, and then make a list of what is REALLY important to you for your wedding day. Who cares what anyone else thinks. Don’t let all of the stress from planning overshadow the fact that you are marrying the man of your dreams. The rest of the wedding is just details.
I’m sure once you see how beautiful you look in your dress, you will be excited again 🙂

@AlmostHisWife: Maybe take a short break from wedding planning? Go on a few date nights just the two of you? Sorry things are tough for you!

I felt so overwhelmed during planning myself that I had to take a 2 months break from all wedding related EVERYTHING but you don’t have that kind of time but if you can find time to put it off please do. It made me mad, sad, I was over planning, I wasn’t excited about getting married anymore and I wasn’t enjoying my engagement so after my break both my FI and I got back into planning and we bonded and became excited again. Breaks are necessary.

I feel for you, if it’s any consolation, I always refer to “the best day of our lives” as “the f*cking wedding”. I’m looking forward to being married to the FI but I HATE the wedding planning.
I hate that it is taking up all my time, that I worry that I’m boring/nagging the FI about getting stuff done, I hate that it is costing so much, I hate that it means I have to deal with my controlling mother more, I hate that it is making me worry about my figure and weight even more than I normally do and I hate that I want the big party (we’re having about 130) and that I don’t want to just elope which is much easier.
However you’re on the final stretch now, I don’t have much advice to give (mainly because I’m not dealing with it that well), but the advice above about taking a break, having the odd night where you do anything except wedding planning is good. Failing that, I find large glasses of wine help.

@AlmostHisWife: Your almost there! I hope you put on the dress and love it. Mine arrives today and I might cry because we decided to postpone the wedding until who knows when last night. Boo

@RECrerar: Planning a wedding is almost like Christmas-time, you’re just ready for the day to come and go already. I told my fiance last night that we should have just gone to the JP rather than plan a wedding. Nothing has gone right at all.
