FI and I got engaged in April of 2009. We’re getting married in August so that’s a 16 months engagement (fairly normal, no?). Well, as of the last two months, I am just so tired of it. I know it’s going to be beautiful and fun…but I’m more excited to get my life back to normal!
I can’t wait until there aren’t any more “wedding-stuff” boxes around my house, in my car and under my bed. I can’t wait for vendors to stop calling me. I can’t wait to stop having to make silly decisions. I can’t wait to stop being organized, prepared and always busy. I am not overwhelmed, I’m just over it!
Anyone else, just….over it?

Oh yes I’m over it as well. FI and I have been engaged for a little over 11 months with under 3 to go and I can’t wait! I can’t wait to be married to my best friend and not have to spend all this money and think about all the details!

I am getting married in three days, and I am over it. I am just totally burned out of wedding planning and I am ready to be in Hawaii, to have my nights and weekends back, for every dollar not to be spent on the wedding. So, I totally understand you Virginiamarie!

Me too! Me too! But mine is mainly that I’m over family causing drama and unnecessary nonsense. I just want it to be over so we can be laying on the beach enjoying a stress free honeymoon! And just think my engagement was only 6 months long- bless you for lasting 16!

We’re having a 17 month engagement and i totally feel you! The whole process gets very tedious. It’s almost over, you’re almost there!

I know how you feel… I felt this way about 8 months into our 14 months engagement – and we did not even have that much planning to do because it was a DW… but we were waiting for January to make it a nice vacation during the winter…
Anyway, I say, take a break, have at least one day a week weddingplanning-free. Try and enjoy this time… the wedding goes by so so fast, you’ll miss it when it’s done!

yup. I’m ready for it to be over.
I know it’s going to be awesome and all yadda yadda yadda yadda… BUT.. it will be nice to have life back to normal, to not think about RSVPs coming in the mail, to not worry about my money paying for the cake or the photographer or the DJ, to not stress about losing the weight, to not worry about having the time off work…
Oh yes.. Soon, soon, soon.

We got engaged July 22, 2009 and still haven’t set a date even though we have been “tentatively” planning the whole time since we had originally planned to marry this summer then money/school forced us to move it back. It’s exhausting to put so much mental effort into this wedding and still have pretty much nothing set for it! I just want to be married already.

Very much agree! My wedding is luckily less than 3 weeks away and it was only a 9 month engagement. I loved so many parts-the showers and bachelorette party for sure, as well as the excitement with my fiance. BUT I am so sick of contstantly talking about the wedding with my fiance and not ever having a day that goes by where we don’t mention invitations, the band, registry, etc…!

I am getting married in a month and 2 days… engagement will be a total of 8 months (short by some standards…but we have been together for 7 years!). I am sooooo ready to be done! I am tired of the stress about stupid things, family crap (and it isn’t even that bad!) and the always growing guest list (just keeps getting longer!). I can’t wait to get on with our “new” life. I just keep reminding myself that when it is all done I will be married to a wonderful man and we will be sitting together on a beach in Bora Bora!

@VirginiaMarie: I totally went through that too! We had an 18-month engagement and I definitely felt like I just wanted the big day to come already! It will get better the closer and closer it gets though. There was a point in time (about 1.5 months out) when I was like “I’M DONE!!” Hang in there… you’re almost there! 🙂

Kind of. 18 month engagement here. I sometimes find myself fantasizing about this fall after it’s all over and done with.

Totally feeling this. I am just hoping that we get excited again closer to the date so that we don’t look glum and droopy or fake-excited in all of the pictures!
