I don’t know why but I’ve been feeling really down lately – almost homesick which is silly since I live close to my mum and my Fiance and I have been living together for two years and I love him dearly. I just really want a cwtch and a bit of a cry – I don’t know why!
I’m tired from work (I’m a nurse working on A&E) and then I get home and have to pick out flowers – I’m really exited about the wedding but I just want to be getting married not picking out a f*****g veil – Simon’s mum is very traditional and wants a veil and lace and all that sbwriel!!!
Sorry I just needed a whinge! My Fiance is off at some confrence in Aberystwyth and I’m sick of being stuck at home with just some fags and a bottle of white wine, all I really want is for it to be close enough to the wedding to actually DO stuff and I want simon home!

I hate the idea of flowers too!! Everyday when I get home from work I think ok I am going to start on envelope liners or addressing RSVP’s or something and then I just watch tv and feel bad about it!!!

Wishing you the best!
Our pastor told us that getting married is the emotional equivalent of experiencing a death in the family — it’s an emotional attack on your system! Hearing that actually made me feel a lot better about the days that I feel inexplicably sad or angry. Weddings mess with your brain! It’s one day, but months and months of planning, and a lot of emotional stuff to work through!
Just sending smiles your way and I’m betting in the end you’ll look back and think it was all worth it!

I admit that I am totally unfamiliar with Welch lingo and had to look up several words in your post, but post that, here’s at least a virtual ((cwtch))! Maybe totally put off the wedding planning for a few days and take a breather, just let yourself relax? No matter whether you’re “caught up” with wedding planning or not, I’m sure you can spare a few days without a disaster. That way you can totally reconnect with your mother and Fiance when he gets back and pick back up on wedding planning refreshed. Everybody gets wedding burn out at some point! It’ll all be fine, just keep your eye on the prize, in a few months you’ll have had a beautiful wedding and will be happily married to your love with all the wedding planning stress and silliness behind you.
Good luck, we’re always here for you on the WB when you need to vent!

Sorry for my vent girls!
I have been on night shifts – always the worst when Simon’s off, and really tired!!!!!!
thanks for the support – I think I needed to be told I wasn’t alone. And @Veganglam thank you for taking the time to look up cwtch – I laps into welsh without thinking that most of you are American. Sorry.
If you don’t know
Cwtch = hug
Sbwriel = rubbish
Aberystwyth = is a place in mid wales on the east coast (about 3 hour on the train from me in Cardiff!

Don’t apologize for the vent, that’s what we’re here for! And don’t apologize about the Welsh either, it’s a learning experience for all us American bees unfamiliar with Welsh. 🙂 I hope life gets smoother for you, good luck waiting till your man gets home!

I started looking up the words too! then i read further down the post! woo!.
Dont worry about venting. Its what WB is here for as veganglam said everyone suffers a little burnout. You need a time out and just you time. Go spoil yourself, have a long bath, paint your toenails, read a good book.
stuff like that helps.

Hi Vicarswifeintraining, I’ve been following weddingbee since i got engaged last August, and it helped me so much through a very quick engagement and marriage! perhaps too quick, as even though I’m a Mrs I still check up on all things wedding 😀
Anyway, my point is that i’ve registered for the first time when i did a double take having clocked the Welsh in your post title, especially to give you some hometown support! My husband works away often and it’s always difficult, especially so when there were wedding things to be planned, and flowers to be chosen!
I agree with the other posters Veganglam and ccranetobe, maybe take a day or two off planning and do something different to take your mind off things. At least the sun is shining in cardiff for a change so it’s not all bad 😀
Chin up bach

Shwmai CazS! how exiting I thought I was alone in being a Welsh girl on here!!!!
anyway thank you all so much I’ve been really down, ill and tired and all that jazz.But now I’ve had my whine and read all your lovely comments I feel way better I even got a call from my man this morning before work so I’m happier now and having had 2 days off wedding junk and 2 days without a call from my Future Mother-In-Law I am feeling much more chilled good advice girl! especially about the long hot bath. I booked our honeymoon on Burgh Island (by plymouth – English South Coast) so that’s something to look forward too anyway – back to the flowers now I guess!!!!!!
