@jordyanna:  Oh my gosh, me. When we were planning our wedding, Darling Husband always knew that when I started bawling over nonsense, it was time for a break – whether it be a weekend getaway, or just staying home and not mentioning the wedding at all, I really needed the timeout from wedding planning. 🙂 So smart of you to take that break, and glad you had a great time!

@jordyanna:  Yes, we have taken several breaks from wedding planning. Our most recent was 3 days (I know it doesn’t sound like much.. but it was!) where we didn’t talk about the wedding at all. I worked hard to not think about it, and to completely push it aside. It’s hard to do that!! Especially when you’re in the middle of working on invitations and finding hair and makeup vendors. It was completely necessary though and I felt refreshed and ready to work on it after those three days. 

We’re 5 months out and I’m hoping on having a few more breaks. There just seems to be so much to do, that I am worried it will be hard to find time to step away completely from the planning. 

Good for you! Try your hardest to continue to take breaks, even if its for one night or a few days like we did.

I absolutely take breaks!  There are times I’ll take a two week break and not even log onto the Bee during the break.  I’m thrilled to be getting married and am excited about the wedding, but sometimes, I’m on overload!

I’m planning mine long distance (NY to NC) and my mother is helming most of the planning tasks since I can’t be there. Also we just started so I’m not burned out yet.

But. My best friend got married last year and she had what was called “Wedding Wednesdays” – and that was the time that she and her Fiance had to sit down and make decisions and split up tasks. It wasn’t mentioned the rest of the week unless there was an emergency. She said this worked up until about a month out, where they just had to tackle more.

We’ve already instituted that policy, though I know that my brain will probably be in wedding mode most of the time, I’m hoping I don’t bring it home every night.

I would love to only focus on it one day a week but I don’t know how feasable that is. Ugh.
