@tirralirra:  You are definitely just stressed, and I think just telling your FI that you are stresse and just need some time to get your priorities in order would be a good idea. Try not to take it out on him. I know you aren’t excited, but he is, and you are going to be a buzzkill on his excitement if you don’t at least act somewhat interested.

Wedding planning mixed in with personal issues is always stressful, but this is just stress talking, and once the day comes you will be happy. Promise. At the end of the day you are marrying a good man, aren’t you?

Just to take some relaxing breaths, go for a walk each night, take time time for you. I know you like to get serious and get shit done right away, but you aren’t helping yourself by focusing all your energy on that. Taking some time out for you to go shopping or to the spa or even just read a book or nap would be a good idea 🙂

@tirralirra:  It will get better. You’re pretty much in the home stretch!

This is totally normal!!! The closer you get to the wedding, the more stressful things are going to get. On top of that, it sounds like you’re dealing with some really stressful personal things. It’s so easy to let those feelings of stress dwarf your feelings of excitement. Just because you’re stressed, it doesn’t mean you aren’t marrying your soul mate, =)!

Can you do something to help you destress? Maybe treat yourself to a pre-wedding spa day? Or spend a day eating an entire tub of chocolate ice cream and watching romantic comedies? Or maybe you can delete some things from your wedding to do list? Maybe there are some DIY projects you can get rid of?

I completely agree with these feelings being stress-induced coupled with possibly his reluctance to compromise on giving your goals a little bit of the spot light. Thats enough to make anyone feel a little irriatated! I think taking some time for yourself and trying to de-stress a bit would be helpful. It would be good for you mentally and emotionally, but will also help you in your relationship. This is totally normal, dont add this concern to your list of worries 🙂
