Just starting the planning process and really sad I’m not excited. Is this at all normal? My wedding is in the spring, so I have a good time to wait and let the feelings come…. I’m so worried they never will. 🙁 The only reasons I think I may not be excited is because I do have to finish up my degree as I am wedding planning, so obviously this is weighing a lot on my mind. I AM excited to be married to FH…. I love him to death and there’s no doubt he’s the one for me. I just really really hope I get excited about our wedding before the day arrives. 🙁 Any thoughts/suggestions…. has this ever happened to anyone or as the date gets closer, will I really feel better about it?

There are times that I don’t feel excited and overwhelmed. I can’t pinpoint as to why, but it can be discouraging. I think everyone goes through this once in awhile. It’s only natural when you want everything to be absolutely perfect and sometimes we don’t even know where to start.
I wish you the best of luck though. You’ll come through eventually.

@SimplyChic11: I’d say it’s normal, ’cause I feel like that a lot of the time. I think I’m more excited about having crafty stuff to do than the wedding….
of course, the LAST party my FI hosted that had around 50 people I hated with a passion… but this time will be different. For one, there will be more people I know and love and he’s promised to not stray from my side. The only thing is…. there’s gonna be A LOT more than 50 people at this party! EEEEK!
Give yourself time and I’m sure by the time January rolls around you’ll either be super excited or panicking…. or both 😉

Spring next year is a ways off (though it will go quickly!) Once it gets closer, and people around you start expressing excitement, you will probably feel a bit better. Ours didn’t really become “real” to me until about a month ago. Although, that being said, most of my excitement is for being married to my FI (and the honeymoon), not the stressful, detail-heavy, logistical nightmare that is the wedding. 🙂

its 2 weeks before our wedding and I am not excited. Everyone asks me if I’m nervous and excited and I just say yes to end the dreadful conversation that follows me saying, “no. not really.” I guess its just how you handle things, specially since you have school to worry about. I know I’ll get excited eventually, (like the day before ) good luck though!!!

I think it’s perfectly normal even to feel that way. You get so excited to get engaged and then, if you are having a longer engagement, you kind of just go “Okay….now what?” I get excited randomly but it certainly isn’t a daily feeling. I get excited to book things or I got excited to get my dress and things like that, but it’s not this constant “Omgeeeeeee I’m getting married in 8 months!” (It has been much longer than 8 months total, lol). So, just let yourself feel what you feel. It’s normal. 🙂
I’m not sure I’ll feel any different. I haven’t over the past several months, really.

I know what you mean! I haven’t been excited this whole time….everyone is giving me junk about it…bc they say it should be the happiest time of my life but it’s really not!! It’s the most stressful & I’m not a huge fan of people all in my business….I am however amazingly excited to marry my love & be a wife!!! I can’t wait till that starts! That’s the only thing getting me through all this! Even if you never get excited just remember to enjoy that day & be excited in that moment bc all the stress leading up to it has to be worth something right? 🙂 good luck!
