Surely I cannot be the first bride to just completely lose interest in wedding planning.
I am in the final stretch, and all of a sudden I just feel overwhelmed and I am starting to have little freak out meltdown moments.
For months now I have been consumed over every little detail. And now I just really don’t want to go any futher with it. At this point, I just want it to be over!! I want the marriage, lets just skip the damn wedding!!
It all of the final details. Making sure everything is paid for. Emailing nonstop. Alterations. Limo service. Flowers. I feel like I am drowning and it is ALL wedding related!
Blah! Blah! Blah!! Is it just me?
I just want to be married already. It is not that I am not excited about being married, I am just SOOOOO over the wedding stuff.

- Wedding: June 2014 - Ontario, Canada ♥ EDD- April 2016
Nope, it happened to me several times so far. We’ve been engaged for two years now and we still have five months to go until our weddimg. Even though I love wedding planning and weddings in general, I’ve definitely lost interest at different points. I just give myself a break and then suddenly someday I’ll be super into it again 😉

Haha, no. We all get that way. I was baked like 2-3 months before the wedding and I was so glad when it was over. Don’t get me wrong, it was the best day ever and it was amazing to see all my work come together, but I was so tired of the drama and thinking and planning and coordinating and questions and “What color tablecloths do you want on what tables?” that I could have ripped out my hair. I was relieved when I didn’t have to think about it anymore, lol!

@thumpurr: You’re not alone! I had SO many moments like this, and a lot of them were in the final few months before the wedding. I can tell you that it will be worth it; our wedding was so much fun and I’m glad we pushed through the stress 🙂

@thumpurr: Not just you! I totally felt this way. I wished we could just cancel everything without it being an imposition for anyone, and just get married in the Rockies ALONE. Argh! The wedding was fun and all, but I still think I would have liked this. Oh well, hindsight. I think our families would have been sad if we didn’t include them.
My email was blowing up and I had to work full time at my insanely busy job until 12 hours before our flight! We had a destination wedding in Mexico and I was handling all the details. I hid out at our house so that nobody would see how grumpy I was. I didn’t want anyone to think I was unhappy about getting married- that wasn’t it. I just wanted to be left alone to stew.
(We had a little legal ceremony before we left and it is still one of my favourite memories. Just us, and we got ice cream afterwards.)
**internet hugs** Don’t worry! It will all blow over, and then you’ll have some gorgeous pictures instead.

@asianyoushi: Ah……my thoughts exactly. Going away next weekend for hunny bunny’s birthday. I am sure there will be some wine (maybe lots of it) too!
@sugarpea: Yes…..DRAMA!! I sure hope it is all worth it in the end. I am so ready to move on to the next please!!
@Fizzy8: OMG!! Destination wedding planning sucks!! I think the fact that I am not there causes more stress than anything else!! I work, 14-16 hours a day on most days, and I just don’t have time to have 100 emails to reply to each day!! My vendors probably think I am whacked…….it is insane!! On most days now, I wish we would have just eloped and told everyone after the fact! LOL!!
But, I am so close now and I am going forward. I think now I know why there is a honeymoon. A period of rest……which is well deserved for all of the crap that we deal with before the big day!! I think honeymoons should come with a ton of wine just because!!
But in the end, I am still happy just because he chose me to be his wife!
