Okay I just got engaged in January and my wedding isn’t until next May but I’m already sick of planning! I feel like every waking moment my mind is on wedding stuff. I really have no idea when to do when and I feel like I’m going to get down to the end and have way too much to come up with.
I booked my venue right away and then started playing with centerpieces. I went on to make the flower girl buckets and cake topper. Yes, my planning is absolutely random!! I then started dress shopping and when that got old I had my bridesmaids pick their dresses and order them. Back to my dress shopping (ordered) and then on to the cake ordered and DJ booked. The end…. or so I wish!!!
I need to figure out a church and a photographer next and both are becoming a hassle. I decided to fill in with a DIY and gave a shot at the paper roses. FAIL! I don’t even know what to do next. There is SO much to figure out and I’m just over it.
Wedding planner please!!!

I totally remember that feeling. If you can afford it a wedding planner, or even a DOC is totally worth it. I wish I had done that! 🙂

I am completely OVER IT. My wedding is in August, and there are still too many loose ends to tie. So many little details still. Getting married is costly, and we are thinking that we should have just went to the JOP. I’m sooooo ready for the honeymoon already!!

Definitely a wedding planner will help keep everything in check for you. I think I would have gone cuckoo by now without one. It also helps to get your FI fully involved.

I am SO OVER it as well. My wedding is in August this year and it’s the silly little things that I still have to organise. I can’t wait to wake up on August 14 and start being ME again. I’m concerned with things I never knew I could be concerned with and can’t wait for it all to end!! I think the day of the wedding will be when I breathe a sigh of relief as I tend to think “what happens, happens”.

I went through that, it was back in October/November (I got engaged in June). But I totally got back into it. You have more than enough time, take a break from all things wedding and when you’re ready, get back into it. You don’t want to end up feeling resentment towards the wedding itself since planning it can be all consuming!
But don’t worry, I’m pretty sure everyone goes through a period of time after the initial excitement wears off that they’re just sick of planning!

I totally am. I’ve got most of my details wrapped up, but I’m so ready to be done thinking about it, and my budget!

Yes yes yes!! I am ready for the party to happen…. we did not do a wedding coordinator. My mother and I did everything, which worked out well.. it was a lot of decision making and learning throughout the nine month engagement.

I feel the same way. It’s almost like I go to sleep thinking about wedding planning, and wake up thinking about it too! We just got engaged on Easter (he popped the question in an Easter Egg) :), but we’re getting married in September of THIS year. We’re doing everything on our own, with the help of some amazing family and friends. I’m just a person who likes a list and wants to know what’s going to happen when, and when this is gonna go out, so on and so on. I just broke down crying the other day. My brain is over-loaded between money signs and coordinating everything. Gah. BUT, I’m going to look at dresses tomorrow with my mom, MOH, and her mom, so hopefully that will relieve some stress!

I feel the exact same way. I would be lying if I didn’t say I HATE this wedding right now. 🙁

Yes, completely. I find myself thinking about all the things I want to do, post-wedding – learn to knit, take yoga classes, reorganize my books – all projects that I don’t have the time/money for right now, as all my extras of both are going towards this wedding. We’ve been engaged since last July, and I honestly can not wait for October to be here, and overwith, and to just be married. And I still have so much to do!

@PurpleQueenieT: Some days I feel calm and collected and organized, other days I freak out. I am ucky that I don’t have anyone pushing me, it is all internal. I keep telling myself that whatever doesn’t get done, isn’t a big deal as long as we have a marriage license and those we love around us. If I want people to show up, I better get those invites in the mail….
