Anyone else out there feeling really exhausted by wedding planning?
Today we completed our ceremony writeup. Our officiant provided some text we could cut and paste and boom it was done. I felt depressed afterwards. Because on my mind were the fact that I haven’t gotten a garter, haven’t gotten a hairstylist, haven’t chosen my hair style etc. It struck me as pathetic that I was losing perspective.
Now I’m starting to question the whole thing. Why did I spend all this money. Why didn’t I just elope?
Anyone else feel the same way?

I don’t think that’s pathetic at all. Planning a wedding, and preparing for the change of being married, is exhausting and overwhelming. Maybe try to prioritize. Perhaps there are some things that you can let go of. Hang in there, you’re definitely not alone!

@I_did_it: I completely understand, planning a wedding, even a small one, is a BIG undertaking! I can’t even count how many times I have thrown my hands in the air and thought lets just cancel everything and elope! something that has helped us in the process is selecting one day a week and devoting it to wedding projects, the rest of the week wedding talk is forbidden Hang in there..I’m sure it will be worth it in the end even if it’s hard to see in the midst of the planning chaos.

@I_did_it: I am as well. I keep looking at how much we’re spending and what we have left to do and I wonder why we didn’t just elope. People keep telling me it’s all worth it in the end and I sure hope they are right! I guess as long as I’m married to my FI my wedding day has served it’s purpose (although it could have been a little cheaper I suppose lol).
