Don’t worry, this isn’t a rant. LoL I was just sitting at my desk checking off RSVPs and realized the wedding is less than a month away. It’s exciting but I somehow am missing the excitement part of this wedding. Let me explain why and we’ll see if this is normal: I currently work part-time, have one child going into kindergarten, and go to school double time. So the wedding kind of took the back burner during the last 6 months. But now it’s less than a month away and a LOT of little things still need to be finished. I have no motivation to do them because I’m so busy with work, school, family, and life. I have finals the day of my wedding and the two days before.
So bees! Is this normal?? I don’t want my FI thinking I’m not excited to be married to him but… I’m just so stressed about other stuff the wedding barely registers unless I sit down and think about it. *sigh*
Anyone else feel like this or am I just the odd bee out?

@GlynnBugg13: I feel like it’s hard on this site because at this point in the planning process you’re SO mentally done!! (at least I am!) And so many girls are just getting started and doing the fun initial planning and are super giddy (which is awesome!) And unfortunately, it’s like getting through the wedding becomes more of a hurdle than anything else. And don’t get me wrong, I can’t wait for our wedding day and I think it’s going to be magical and beautiful, but at the same time I really want to be in Mexico laying on the beach with a cocktail 2 days post-wedding!! I know exactly where you’re coming from, girl!

I started getting really excited like…the Thursday before the wedding. That was the point it was too late to do anymore planning and we realized we had done everything we could and the chips would fall where they may. It’s also the point where all of the stuff we had planned actually started happening…dropping the dogs off, finishing up a last day of work, checking into our hotel, greeting the early-arriving family members, etc.
At one month before the wedding however, I was just…done. I let a lot of little things go during that month because I ran out of steam, which is why we didn’t have a cake topper, our escort cards were written in my normal boring handwriting, and I didn’t wear any special rehearsal dress.
So to answer your question, I think it’s perfectly normal to feel more daunted than excited at the one-month mark. No worries, you will be excited when the time comes!

Yep, I hear you! I was just telling a friend tonight that as much as I am looking forward to the big day, I am moreso looking forward to being “done” the wedding and on holidays. I do consulting and I was explaining to her that it’s been like one giant beastly project for the past 9 months, lol. Yes, I’m ready to be done…and ready to delegate whatever else needs to be done!
Hopefully you can find some people to delegate those last minute tasks to.

I agree with all of you ladies! With only 16 days to go I am just ready to stop thinking and planning! LOL and have been for a month or so!
I feel like I should be more excited too, but with everything else that is going on (my mom is also undergoing cancer treatment) it is just hard! But I am sure once I hit like the Wedesday before (thats my first day off work for the wedding!) it will all hit me like a ton of bricks and I will get super excited…at least I hope LOL
Happy wedding day to all of you preparing for your big day in a few weeks 🙂
