I know how you feel! That definitely happened to us–we were so sick of it all that we nearly eloped! Maybe its time to step back for a bit and give yourself some breathing room? I ended up taking a couple of intentional breaks from wedding planning (1-2 weeks long), and they really helped to clear my head, tone down the anxiety about things that weren’t going right, and regain some enjoyment in planning.

Oh I felt like that from day one.  I hate all of the planning.  I’m so ready for the wedding to be over and to go to Mexico.  I’m honestly dreading the reception.  It’s so bad.  🙁

I am so over it!!! BUT that is why I am having a girls night on Saturday…. NO WEDDING TALK ALLOWED! lol I just need a small break! I have almost everything done and have for a very long time, it’s just the little things I am freaking out about. I think seeing 92 days until the wedding is making me go nuts!

I went out to dinner with a friend last night and was venting about how I’m over it. Been engaged since May 2011 and I’m officially over planning! I think taking a little break is a good idea, which is what I’m going to try to do.

I am already over it as well! A few weeks ago, okay more like a month ago, I was all excited to make our invites, but now I have just been putting it off. We are both looking forward to it being over with!

I am right there with you guys. I am excited for it all, but what I am really overwhelmed with is all the tiny details that I am trying to figure out. I keep thinking of this, that, or another that I haven’t even considered and then I start to freak out…how am I going to get this done by Sept 30th?!

SO over it! I don’t want to think about anything else I need to do. Yet there’s still so much.

I was over it the day we started planning. I wanted to have a DW, FI wanted the big shebang. We’re having the big shebang. 

I also realize that not everyone cares about my wedding like I do, and so I rarely talk about it unless someone brings it up or asks me.

I have to keep taking breaks from wedding planning because I get so sick of it.

Ahhh I was just going to start a thread like this.  I know exactly how you feel except I haven’t even been engaged as long as you have!  That is the ONLY question people can ask me these days, “how’s the wedding planning going?”  I usually reply back–well, everything is pretty much done that needs to be done for now & I am trying to concentrate on school.  I will finish everything once school is out..which is true.  My grades in med school for the first part I was engaged kind of show that I was probably not 100% concentrating on school….haha!  Still passed of course, but I would have liked to have done better.  Just because I am pretty sick of planning doesn’t mean I don’t look once in a while still, I just don’t spend HOURS on pinterest, etc. anymore. Weddingbee on the other hand…. 😉

Ohh and another thing I hate is whenever we are with the future in-laws, ALLLLL they can talk about is the wedding & how they want it to go.  I don’t like most of their ideas so I usually sit there and curse in my head, then start daydreaming about something else.  Why do family members think they get a say in everything that goes on?  Ugh…takes a lot of will power not to turn into a super control freak bridezilla sometimes..haha 😛

I could have written almost all of the posts on this thread.  Le sigh.
