So the other day I found out my cousin passed away…his liver failed…too much drugs and alcohol his whole life. He was only in his late 30s.
This morning my uncle passed away of Cancer…at least he’s no longer in pain.
I’m graduating this June and I’m so excited…getting married end of August. It’s weird though…sometimes I’m so stressed about small details of the wedding, and then I remember there are more important things in life and wedding planning will just have to wait. I’m flying to Seattle this weekend and coming back Monday. I could say that I can’t afford it with the wedding coming up but I think my family needs me right now.
Oh, and plus my mom’s getting a divorce and we’re moving right now too…so many changes.
So, I’ve been taking a break from wedding planning here and there…sometimes I plan day and night and some weeks I do nothing at all…it just depends on how the rest of my life is going. Don’t know what the point of this post is…maybe just to vent and share my experience in wedding planning. All I can say is this year is a big one for a lot of us: life, death, school, wedding, work…and the list goes on. A reminder: it’s ok to take a break from your busy life and just focus on your priorites (not flowers and cake, but maybe someone else who needs you right now). Enjoy this time and good luck!

It sounds like you need to take a break. There are a lot of things going on in your life and a wedding is only one day of your life, it shouldn’t take over your entire life.

After everything that’s been going on in my life (fairly similar to your situation) I’ve been throwing myself into planning. I just don’t want to think about everything and would rather think about and plan one of the few happy days I’m looking forward to having.

i’m in a lull right now with the planning, so it’s not taking over the rest of life right now…at the beginning of my planning, i was also applying to grad school (and working full-time, ha!), and that was really stressful to balance. now i’ve gotten into school and fi and i are figuring out details about moving (like apartment searching), i’m slowly leaving my job (started working part-time today!) and starting to prep for school by taking some classes and studying independently, and fi has work related details he needs to figure out. so it’s good the planning’s stalled right now, since otherwise it’d be too much!

@Toffee- I totally understand. I found myself trying to run away from a lot of things but for now I need a break…from most everything.
@finnaroo- Congrats! Sound slike you’re doing all the right things 🙂
@MissAsB- Yes, I need to and I am… plus I don’t even want to THINK about the wedding right now…besides letting it cheer me up 🙂

My wedding isn’t taking over my life. MY JOB has taken over my life, leaving no room for my wedding! I seriously put in 14.5 hours yesterday.
