Have you read the book “A Practical Wedding” by Meg Keene? It was so helpful to read during the planning process, especially for reminding me what the day was all about.

Sing it to me sister!

 

There is good news though.  It really does die down eventually.  I think the major things that you have to do way in advance are definitely the most stressful (and most expensive, so double stressful!)  Everything started out SUPER stressful for me, but then in the last 6 months, it got better and better.  I mean, now the only thing we really need to worry about is programs.  And who cares if those don’t work out!

I don’t have much advice because I’m in the same exact boat, but I will tell you that you are not alone!!

@remijp:  +1 to that

And have you condsidered taking a serious break from planning?
That was the only thing that stopped us from arguing so much about the wedding in the beginning…. we had to step back and give it a rest, then figure out what was important to us and and compromise.
FI also started to help plan after we took a break from it and talked about it – he’s like my wedding planning MVP now!

We just started planning last month for a March ’14 wedding (literally just started), so you can totally do that without sacaraficing your wedding plans.

@BeeRod527:  I was exactly the same. FI eventually said that if the wedding is stressing me out this much he didn’t want to get married anymore. So I took 3 weeks off. I didn’t plan. I didn’t go on WB. I didn’t look on Pinterest. It worked wonders! Now I can think about the wedding and not obsess. I think about it, make plans, book a vendor, then I dont do any wedding related things for a week or so. I feel much happier
