My wedding is 3 weeks away and, honestly, I could not care less. I love my FI and I will be really happy to see all of my friends….BUT so many people haven’t bothered to RSVP, we got so many hurtful “no” rejections, so much money and time has been poured into this. I’m just kind of over it.
On an unrelated note, one of my mom’s friends just found out that her cancer spread and she may not have that much longer to live. Kind of puts this whole over the top party thing in perspective.
Anyway, I’m just SO.OVER.THE.WHOLE.WEDDING.THING

I hear you. I’m over it and I’m still more than a month out.
I’m sorry to hear about your friend’s mom 🙁

Hey girl. I totally hear you. You are so not alone in this. I feel like this wedding has caused so much stress in my life. Everyday I’m trying to plough through more tasks. I also feel like I’ve invested so much time, energy and money into this. Everyday more things come up to do.
I have heard from friends who have gotten married that the day-of was still wonderful, and I’m hoping that it is. But at this point I’m just looking forward to the honeymoon when this is all over.
I’m sorry to hear about your friend’s mom as well. It is so important to keep things in perspective.

I’m with ya. My wedding is about 3 weeks out, too, and I’m just sick of everything. I’ve put a ton of effort and money into making this happen, the whole time feeling like I was doing it because my family wanted to see a “real wedding”, when FI and I just wanted to elope. And then to get 50% of my RSVPS back as declines, that was really hurtful and it really pissed me off. I feel like if I’m making the effort to plan this stupid wedding that they all said they wanted, and take two weeks out of my life to fly half way around the world, the least they can do is take an afternoon off work and drive an hour for the ceremony and reception. I don’t care about any of it anymore. I just want it to be over!

I was bloody sick of my own wedding by the time it arrived. We had a 7 month engagement and I’m so glad it wasn’t any longer, just more time to stress over silly details. It was a perfect day though.

I agree… My wedding was last night ( husband is driving ) and I was so over the whole thing…… But it was a great day with just a few min oops

@emtmrose89: Congratulations! I’ll be looking for a recap! ;]
I feel your pain, OP. 12 days left for me, and although I still feel like there’s so much to be done, I find myself shrugging everything off. :S I just can’t be bothered anymore, because nothing is going according to plan, and it has really bummed me out.

@jackndiane: Hugs!!! Hang in there, you’re almost there. You will be blissfully happy the day of the wedding.
But I totally understand how you feel. I wanted to elope, but in the end we didn’t because of family. Like @Edelweiss: I’m planning the wedding they want with no help at all! Everybody is trying to impose their desire, yet I’m left alone dealing with all this stress. But the closer I’m getting to the date, the more careless I’m becoming. At the end of the day, I just want to marry FI and dance the night away. Who cares if the table runners are not the right color!

:::Hugs:::: Sadly, people can be so bad at putting a response card back in the mail. Did you call these guests to give them a “gentle reminder”. I did this last week and two days later checked my mail to find response cards from those guests and they’re attending. FI and I were getting a little bummed out when we started getting quite a few unexpected declines. We looked at this way: the people closest to us who matter will be there. Those who aren’t coming aren’t goin to make our day any less special. Then on an even lighter note, the declines have basically paid for our full open bar so we don’t have to really pay the caterer additional $$$. Hang in there. You’re happily ever after is almost here.
