renwoman:  I find most aspects of it pretty “meh”. I just want to be married to the guy I love, the rest is just kind of stuff I feel like I have to do to get there.

It’s almost like all of the salads you might eat on a diet to get skinny. The salads aren’t wonderful, but the end result is what you wanted.

Or something like that.

What on earth is happening here tonight? Some sort of vortex in the space/time continuum appears to have opened and allowed a STAMPEDE of trolls to trip-trap their way in here.

renwoman:  Not everyone gets the same thrill about event planning, whether that is their wedding or anything else. Rest assured it doesn’t mean that your wedding will be “meh”.

Lots of people don’t enjoy cooking but they still like eating dinner.

I’ve been pretty ‘whatever’ about sone decisions. Like ‘yeah this hairband will do’ and ‘this ribbon will do’ because I know that these details will be forgotten by everyone, but what they WILL remember will be our happy faces and our great venue, so I know I won’t end up with a ‘meh’ wedding!

ps: Things not to be meh about are the venue, dress and photographer. Everything else isn’t so important imo 😀

17 days away from my wedding, and I still feel meh about it all. Don’t get me wrong I am thrilled, and over the moon about marrying my FI and spending the rest of our lives together… But honestly other then that, I don’t care about any of it. As long as the end result is us as husband and wife.

FI says it’s because I didn’t want a “wedding” which may be true… But the end result is all the same… Maybe try and focus on that, that should make you smile!

I usually feel like I should be more stressed. I hear all this about wedding planning being soooo stress full, and I am not. I am almost 2 months away from the big day and I am pretty meh about everything. Really I don’t care that much about details. I just book things and then pay for them (that’s the stressfull part lol). I am DIYing just a little bit, and mom is too. She is really into decor and stuff, so I am letting her do her thing. I am more into logistics. So yeah. I just want to marry the man of my dreams. Can’t wait! I wish I could close my eyes and open them on my wedding day!

MANY people find the planning process dull or unexciting. Maybe because my now-husband and I had so many things that we lined up on (or he didn’t care), all of the details came together quickly. A relative’s band played at the wedding, we were given a few other freebies, and we only looked at one venue. It left us without much work to do.

Our wedding was GREAT. We had a lot of fun, and most importantly, we had the chance to eat and talk over dinner…AND cake. Those are the things you remember when it’s over. And “meh” wedding planning often translates to a lot less stress and a lot less letdown after it’s over.

I had one day of, “Wow, so I’m married now,” before I adjusted to the marriage. But you see so many women here who throw themselves into the wedding planning and “THE BIG DAY (TM),” only to come crashing down to earth when it’s all over. Some of them have spent a year (or even longer) aggressively planning it…and then they see it’s a 12-to-16 hour event at most that is done in the blink of an eye.
