My wedding is in 3 weeks and im not feeling excited like i should be. Im not sure if its the nerves getting in the way but im feeling so exhausted and down instead of being happy and excited. In the beginning I was super excited and really enjoyed the planning. anyone else feel like this the last weeks before the wedding or is it just me?

Hi, princesspink. 🙂 I think what you are going through is perfectly normal. So many brides are completely conditioned to think that every single moment from the initial engagement to wedding planning to the wedding day has to be EXITING and HAPPY, when that is the furthest thing from the truth. In the middle of all of that, real life has to be lived as in your job, paying bills, working on relationships, etc. You probably need to take a little break, hang out with your girlfriends or delegate some of your wedding tasks to others close to you so you don’t end up feeling overwhelmed.
As the days get closer to your wedding, don’t be surprised about the stress level going up. That’s normal, too. It is not supposed to be all fun and games 24/7. Take the time remaining up until your wedding, and lean on your family/friends. Best wishes. 🙂

I agree with teeny1967.
I completely expect to feel underwhelmed by the whole experience as it comes closer.. because it is only every portrayed as happiness and excitement contantly.. but realistically, it is also surreal, there are snags, and sometimes not overly exciting. DOnt worry about it!
Treat yourself kindly and enjoy what is coming together around you. You are going to be married to the love of your life!!! Dont let what you think you should be feeling get to you too much because it will just stress you out and put pressure on you. I honestly think its normal!

@princesspink: How do you feel about being married to him? When you think about the day after the wedding, or month or year after, what do you feel? Not being excited about the wedding day isn’t alarming, but not being excited about being married…that is something you should explore.
As you approach W-Day, all the stress of details, family, etc can be overwhelming. So you kinda go numb as a coping mechanism. But you should be excited about being married. I remember being sooooo excited about being married, but just wanted to get the wedding over with!
