I’m one of those brides that has gotten really down with the wedding planning. I’ve realized that part of it is how detached my FI is from the process and how alone and anxious I feel through all of this. He is always too busy with his work (ministry) to be available.
Last weeek, I made a Shutterfly photobook from our engagement photos. Seeing us so happy and in love helped a lot. But I’m still constantly on the verge of tears. We’re 3-4 weeks out from the wedding and I just don’t feel excited about it. I desperately want to, but it’s hard for me to drum up the energy to even call vendors!
What are you doing that is helping you through this process?

Sounds like you need a night off and a date with your fiance! I think it’s very common to get stressed out with wedding planning. Just focus on why you’re doing this in the first place. And be honest with your guy that you’re feeling a little overwhelmed and could use some help.

I have been feeling this way too… turns out I HATE planning. who knew? hahah. Anywaays, I’m not sure what else helps, but I had a big old girl cry the other day where I just let out all my stress to my fiance and even though he didn’t know what to say, I already felt better just getting a bunch of pent up stress out!
Hope it eases up soon for both of us. Wish I could just fast forward straight to the wedding!

I would take one night off a week at least. Make it a non-wedding day.. no talk of wedding or any projects. we do this and it helps keen us (well mainly me) sane.

Have you booked your honeymoon yet, if you’re having one? Thinking of that is sometimes THE ONLY thing that gets me through!

Oh my goodness, I feel the exact same way!!! Sometimes I have to go into the other to wrong just cry so I don’t worry my FI. I don’t think men understand the stress of planning a wedding!!!! I can’t get over how stressed out I am about the planning!
Hopefully we can all get through this together 🙂

Date nights with no wedding talk does help…. and for that matter bride to be alone or with girl friends without wedding talk also help.
