Hey there…maybe take a week where you don’t talk about the wedding…like no exceptions. Tell your friends and fam you’re taking the week off so you can just reconnect and be a couple without the looming nuptials. You can go on a date or two, take walks, watch movies, etc etc anything but discuss wedding details, no pressure…just love 🙂

I am feeling the exact same way!! We have been engaged since last January, and I have been a super-planner almost the whole time… basically it has been all I think about! Now that we are getting close (less than 2 months) I am just starting to feel… blah. I love FI and I can’t wait to be married, but as for the actual wedding planning, I am starting to become super apathetic! I think its pretty natural after having planned for so long. Plus, like you said the stuff we have to do now isn’t exactly fun 🙁

Good luck and if I find out a way to get super excited again (like I was a few months ago) I will let you know 🙂

@HappinessIsInDaisies:  Girl, I feel you!  Our wedding is less than 2 months away and I am stressed to the max!  FI and I are bickering more than ever over stupid little things, and we always feel silly for doing so after its over.  We’ve got a lot on our plate right now between the wedding almost being here and moving into a new apartment next week and we’re taking it out on each other.  We try to remind ourselves that its just the stress talking, and take time every night where we just cuddle and kiss and don’t talk about anything stressful.  It helps us remember that we’re playing on the same team and that we’re not each other’s enemy, even when things are tense.  Good luck!

I’m getting married on Saturday and about three weeks ago I was there. Talk to a supportive friend about it who will not give advice, but will listen and make you feel safe and strong. My best friend listened, and reminded me of how loved and awesome I am, just as you should be as well. Take care of yourself. Personally, I was very sensitive and thought everything everyone said was rude or an insult directed towards me. It will pass for you, just as it did for me, I hope.

I think it stems from the build-up and all of the overwhelming emotions that are brought forth during wedding planning and all of the attention you receive during it. You are going from the much-revered and loaded word ‘bride’ to simply a newlywed. It’s a big change, and sometimes when one knows and feels a big hange that is coming the last little bit is so frustrating and drawn out. 

Good luck to you, hope you are feeling like yourself again soon. Keep us updated!
