5 and a half months to go and I need a break from wedding planning. I am consumed with paper samples, table frames, chair covers and all of this other BS that I really shouldn’t be concerned about. Last night I just started to randomly cry because of the overwhelming feeling. Wedding planning sucks!!!! Anyone else feeling like that lately?

I hit that point about 8 months before my wedding. For me, picking out my vendors was incredibly overwhelming. I’m planning my wedding from 1200 miles away on a small budget with little help. I broke down several times because choosing a photog, officiant, venue, was just too difficult. Now, wedding planning is fun for me and I look forward to working on projects. I hope it gets better!

@WestieGirl: Yup. I know how you’re feeling and I’m not even that far into the process. I’m thinking of avoiding it all together. I never wanted a big wedding and then was kind of swayed in the big wedding direction, but am now putting on the brakes lol.
Can you take a break? Can you pass out some decision making to anyone like your mother, fmil, bridesmaids?

I hit that point last week. Literally had a fit where I cried for about a half an hour (things are not going as well as they could be with my venue). I took a week off. I feel 100% better and now have a clear mind. My mom and sister (MOH) continued chugging along in my absense. Bless their hearts. Do you have anyone who can help? I think if you took a week off, shouldn’t hurt anything 🙂

@TequilaSunrise: I’m not talking to my mom, FMIL doesn’t want us to get married because she’s essentially racist, and I’m only having one person in the bridal party.
@countrygirl62312: I think I’m at a point where I can take a week off. I just got a quote for my chair covers which is beyond reasonable it’s so good, I ordered invites, ordered paper samples to make inserts and pocketfolds, started working on editing pics for our table names, and talked to my friend/co-worker who is a MUA and I didn’t know it.
Wish I could take a week off and go somewhere tropical but uh all of my money is tied up in this doggone wedding!!!
