It sounds like you have more done than me and I have two months left! I also feel like I’m forgetting things and keep telling myself I have plenty of time to get it all done but I only have nine weeks and those will be spent focusing on school and finals! I still need hair & make up, shoes, garter, all accessories, wedding party & parent gifts, have to make a seating chart & favors for 300 people, etc I understand the weird emotions too. I’m ready to be married, not over the moon excited like I thought I’d be, just really calm with sudden moments of panic that it won’t get done lol but I know in the end it will, regardless if the centerpieces are perfect and someone forgets something, we’ll be okay. I’m just excited to get away on the honeymoon!

anhelms:  I could have written this myself 5-months ago!!!  I do not think you are abnormal, or odd in any way shape or form.  Perhaps my opinion is a bit biased?!

I felt ‘ahead of the game’ throughout most of the planning (knock on wood that I did not forget anything).  I had made lists, followed checklists, etc, and just slowly checked things off when and where I could.  HECK, I had my BM gifts BOUGHT AND WRAPPED MONTHS AGO!!  Just random stuff like that, etc.  

I think we are engrained with the idea that wedding planning is stressful, and that we should feel bridal-y every moment, of every day throughout the engagement process.  And, maybe it is for some, and maybe some people feel that way all the time, which is fine.  But, for those whom do not experience those things, we feel we are doing something wrong, or whatever.  I know I did.  

I cannot tell you the number of times people would ask me questions, and I would shrug and tell them it was done, or Im not doing it, or Im not ‘feeling’ it, and they would ask me why I am NOT EXCITED?!?!  I would tell them I AM, but maybe I am missing the bridal gene…?!

Regardless, I finally came to terms with it all.  Because I knew that I was excited about the marriage, and that the party we planned would be fine (not perfect) no matter what.  We will be husband and wife, afterall, and that is something to celebrate – even if it pours buckets, or my flower choice is all wrong, or I did not get around to doing favors, etc.  

NOW, with all this said, as I write my final checklist of things to do, because our marriage day is 30-days from today, I find an excitement I have not felt over 10 months.  I genuine, true, excitement about having all my family and friends in one place to celebrate us.  Maybe that stems from the fact it is so close, or the fact that my final checklist is minimal because I had done so much already.  It is a good place to be, and I think if you continue on your place, you will be there too 🙂
