I didn’t send out save-the-dates, I didn’t care to put our picture with an announcement in the newspaper, I didn’t want to take engagement pictures, …
We had dance class last night and I didn’t really feel “into” it .. .maybe I’m worn out? I think I’m completely exhausted from planning that I cannot take another thing.
People are asking me all these wedding questions with such enthusiasm and I’m like: *Blink Blink* … and they’re like aren’t you excited … I am TIRED. Lol.
Not only am I tired … I have spent every single penny on wedding things … I’ve lived, breathed and slept wedding … omg.
What do you do when it gets to this point? I am at the point where I don’t care who comes, if anyone … I just feel like I could give up.
I’m sick of so much drama and the crazy that comes out of everyone during this wedding process … I feel like telling everyone to … _____ (something ms.hymanroth will not say… but wants too… but won’t…)_______.

It’s TOTALLY normal to feel the way you do.
I felt that way about two months before the wedding, I was burnt out from wedding planning! Try to take a weekend and do NOTHING wedding related.
For me, I got excited again about a month before but I was still really stressed, then about 2 weeks before I reached my favourite point, the “I don’t care” stage.
Just know that what you are feeling is normal and you will get through it!

Nothing is wrong with you – you have lived and breathed all things wedding and it’s a normal reaction. If you can, take a break from wedding ‘thinking’ and do things that are NOT wedding related.
Hang in there and do whatever you can to stay away from the crazy.

Ok I had that crash and burn feeling a couple weeks ago, and suddenly I accomplished a big project, and somehow snapped out of it. It sounds like you need a break, that’s what I did. It will get better.

I felt that way two a few months before the wedding. It is totally normal. What helped me was to step away from all things wedding for a few days. I was able to cool off and relax my brain from all the stress of planning. Once I had the chance to relax I had a more relaxed and carefree attitude about it all. Not the “I don’t care” attitude but more of the “nothing is perfect, and I am OK with that” kind of attitude.
You will get there too. Just be sure to take those breaks and breathe!

I feel the SAME WAY! I have so many things left to do and the invitations just took all the energy out of me. Haha, I wish I could quit…. just 6 weeks left, date twin!!!!

Been there done that. You put your game face on, chug a coke, and check some things off your list and start the countdown!
Take a few days off. You’ll feel a hundred times better. It took me a plane ticket to GA to get away from it all

I know exactly how you feel! The entire month of May I did NOTHING. I had just finished school, started on clinical rotations, and moved all in one week. I was spent. I did not care about the wedding. I couldn’t even look at anything wedding related. It is okay not to care about the wedding planning process…for a little while! It took me a whole month to recover, so take the time that you need and relax!

it’s normal to want to get back to normal life at some point. take a break. figure out what you can outsource to your FI, bridal party, etc.
i actually had someone ask me when i was going to start getting excited about my wedding the other day! so no, you do NOT have to be all gushy excited all the time.

I go in spurts. Some days I am sooo excited. Others I just want the planning to be over and feel really over it. Super swamped at work, trying to unpack our new place, and don’t feel like I have the time to dedicate to wedding stuff.
Anyways, you’re normal for feeling this way : )

Agree with everyone else! Sometimes you have to “step away from the wedding” to regain your enthusiasm. Don’t worry about how you are “supposed” to be — feel how you feel, embrace it, take care of you however you need to. Then when you come back to the wedding you’ll do so with renewed energy and enthusiasm!

Take a break! Even if it’s just a few hours to think about NOTHING. I’m at the point you’re at…October 3rd can’t come soon enough….I’ve reached my “I don’t care, can’t this be done with already?!” stage.
