When I started the planning process it is was SO MUCH FUN! We are 2 month from the wedding and to be honest I am done. I just don’t care – when I talk about it I get mad/angry. Fiance actually told me today “everyone else is looking forward to this but you.” The worst part is he is right! I think it may be because I am literally the ONLY person working on the wedding he helps but he is a guy so he does exactly what I tell him to do – he won’t do it independently. My mom lives 12 hours away where the wedding is being held is SUPER busy. Her idea of helping is calling and asking if this this and this are done and when I say “no” saying ohh ok. Gotta go!
UGG! This is not the person/bride I want to be. Also, it is my one and only wedding I should be happy. I just want to get excited again.
Did anyone else go through this? How did you get the excitement back?

I just answered another post that was almost the same. I went through this too. I suggest you take a week off from planning, or even just a few days. Don’t think about it, don’t work on it, just walk away. I had to walk away for a few weeks to get my mojo back. Focus on yourself or just do something fun. Good luck

Create an amount of time where there will be ‘no wedding talk’ for a week or so. It might give you the time you need to get away from the subject so you can rejuvenate yourself.

@Lotsofchocolateplease: i swing between extreme stress and enjoying the organisation and i have 4 months left! its hard being pretty much th eonly one sorting things out
i find that once ive made a significant amount of progress i relax a little bit. once the details are sorted im sure youll enjoy the wedding

@Lotsofchocolateplease: I went though this, then I went to a wedding a few weeks ago that costed them 40k and didn’t look like a 40k wedding, but every time I looked at the bride she was so happy, relaxed, easy going and enjoying herself. So I realized myself that when it comes down to it no one judges or cares about the little details and if they do they are just vain.
I’ve just started not caring about the little things anymore, sticking to budget and just relaxing about it all because how happy that bride was is all I remember from that wedding!

Take a break away from planning. (Hopefully) you have enough done by now that you can afford to just step back for a few and do something else – then maybe that can bring some of the fun back!

I went through this too, about 3 months before the wedding. I was ready to be DONE with all of it. But think about it – by then, you’re just focusing on all of the irritating details rather than on big picture. It’s bound to be tedious and annoying. It doesn’t mean that you’re not looking forward to getting married and celebrating with your guests!
I started to get excited again after my second shower, about 6 weeks before the wedding. By the time I had my bachelorette party 3 weeks out, I was back to bouncing off walls. It’ll come around again. 🙂

@Lotsofchocolateplease: Once you realize that the small details really don’t matter, you’ll feel better.
Not everything has to be perfect, and you’re the only one who is stressing about stuff. People will have fun. If your groom shows up, that’s all that’s actually important.

I felt the same way.. I had help here and there but no one did it solo! My DH’s grandmother jumped in about 3 months before the wedding and saved my life! My DH’s mom pissed me off the hole damn time! She was in GA and couldn’t help but would email and called asking 1001 questions about this and that and blah blah blah.. And would get mad if things wasn’t done =/. Yea I feel your pain. But the day of your wedding I’m sure everything your feeling now will go away. And be over powered by happiness
