Does anyone get moments where they are just sick of wedding stuff? I feel like I have this ongoing list running through my mind 24/7 and it’s starting to really get to me. My next big project is finishing up the invites, not a big deal they are mostly done, I DIYed them but I have to print the RSVP cards, directions, and info about the reception. I also have to address them all. I have no desire to finish them.. they look so good and i’m so close to being done but i feel like just throwing whatever in there to finish them up. Not too mention every time I turn around I have something on so there’s no time hardly for me to sit home and do them.. I dont know i’m just out of it today, sorry for the whinning

Haha I was on a 3 day hiatus from it this week… even THINKING about it! There are so many options when it comes to planning a wedding, and it kind of sucks to make a decision and then realize, no, wait, maybe this is better. Sigh!
Just give yourself a break if you need it! Take a long walk, take a hot bath, and tackle the rest one part at a time. It feels like a chore, yes, but make a to do list with what’s left, do one thing then go do something else, and then come back to the next part. You can do it!

I have had those moments as well! I found that a taking a few days off – from thinking about or doing anything wedding related – helps a lot!!
Then when you start up again, you feel refreshed… I took many "breaks" from wedding stuff throughout the planning process. Once your done with the invites – take some time to relax and do nothing for the wedding. Then you can get back into it – which you will have to, when the rsvp’s start coming back to you.

Oh yes, I’ve gotten those feelings several times throughout my planning process. I just give myself a week off and the enthusiasm usually comes back!

GIRL! I know exactly how you feel. I was so sick of wedding stuff and so I convinced myself that nobody even cared and I cried a LOT. I took that LONG weekend off from wedding planning and just did one project that I didn’t care whether it got done or not. After that break I’ve gotten so much more done too. I was also at the mailing invitation stage when I had a break down. 🙂
It’ll get better. Maybe you just need a break?

I think all the options overwhelm me, as it can for any bride!! I have so many ideas but only a little bit of money, so figuring out what will work best and sticking to it has been my hardest thing to do. I worry that I’ve bought things that I didn’t need to buy and wasted money that could have spent in better ways…

Thanks I feel crazy sometimes, plus were looking for a house or apartment or something so that adds a whole other element and makes the wedding seem like peanuts compared to bidding on a house

I have that list running through my head, too! A break must be the answer, I need one. It’s SO OVERWHELMING, especially when you’re trying to work, too, like a 9-5 job!

I have totally been there. I agree with others that you have to step back for a while – when you start thinking "I just want this to be over" that’s your signal to stop for a while. I definitely took some breaks after big pushes like invitations, etc.

I definitely went through that! By the end of our engagement, when people asked me if I was excited for the wedding, I was very tempted to say, "I’ll be excited to be done PLANNING the wedding!" I found that if I switched gears or gave myself some time off, it helped a lot! A few times, my fiance and I went on date-nights where wedding-talk was not allowed. Those helped us reconnect and just having fun together reminded me why the wedding (and all the planning) was important to me in the first place!

The past two/three weeks I was in a wedding funk. But this week I’ve been more motivated. Probably because I know we have less than two months to go!

Me me me!.. and I’ve only been engaged for 2 months. haha. So far we only have the venue down but that alone took a lot out of me (long story). I, myself, haven’t had the desire to do any of the planning this. I hope I get inspired again soon – there is plenty more for me to do.
Hang in there!

Girl, my wedding is the day before yours and I was JUST telling a friend today I wish we had eloped lol. I’m totally sick of wedding ‘junk’ and I just sent my invites yesterday, but only the 1st round, because a bunch of my FH friends, including the groomsmen, STILL haven’t given us their current addresses, ugh.
So ya I totally feel you, I just can’t wait for this all to be DONE already.

I think my FAV thing about weddingbee is seeing how much you have in common with everyone else.
Doesn’t it help to know that EVERYONE goes thru this? I know it makes me feel better. I feel like a "debbie downer" People ask how it is going and I also say "I am excited for it to be DONE!" I have cried so much. I have felt alone and like no one cared. I havn’t been able to sleep becasue the stress is crushing me. My mind races.
Right now I am a little over 2 weeks away. I am excited but almost even more "over it" than before. That is becasue now I have to do something EVERYDAY. I am tired and want to just go home after work and lay down…but I can’t…I don’t have time to "waste"
I think we are ALL going thru this. I am over it. It’s a lot of work and stress. I know it will be worth it in the end..but right now..if jsut sucks
